The Executive Vice Chair of N8tive Bar, Madam Adubea Ayisi, has revealed that there are actually jobs that are available but young graduates are usually not fit for them.
The respected Ghanaian employer made this earnest revelation in an interview with Enyonam Manye sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official Facebook handle of BizTrends.
According to the businesswoman, there are simply too many graduates who feel that they are entitled to jobs simply because they have obtained their degrees and certificates.

The discussion was centred around the tourism and hospitality sector, but around the 22nd minute of the interview, the eloquent host asked for the employer's advice to young people regarding finding means of livelihood.
Adubea indicated that young people need to get rid of the mentality that they are supposed to be offered jobs upon completing school and rather focus on obtaining the required experience and skills.
"As an employer for many years, the perception is not that there are no jobs but that there are no right fits for the jobs," Adubea mentioned, adding that young people must offer themselves for volunteering services at firms and then state their experiences on their CV to get jobs.
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh also reported that Maame Esi Forson, a popular Ghanaian comedienne who is also an award-winning actress, has recounted how she was able to build a GHc600,000 worth mansion from her own hard work.
The beautiful, young, and successful actress revealed this in a video interview sighted by YEN.com.gh with ZionFelix at his newly-built studio.
According to Maame Esi, her breakthrough came from being able to cook very well which got her a partnership with a businessman who linked her to many companies that she has been serving.
