A graduate of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) named Linda Anderson has narrated how unemployment for just a year shattered her life completely.
Linda recounted her story in a YouTube video sighted by YEN.com.gh on her handle, Beautifully Milan, where she wondered what people who experience unemployment for more than a year go through.
According to the young woman who graduated with a BSc in Chemical Engineering in 2017, it got to a point in her life after national service that she was confused, angry, and depressed.
Watch the video below:
Linda indicates that one of the elements that worsened her plight was the thought of what perceptions others held about a young, vibrant graduate like her sitting idly at home.
After being angry at herself, God, and many other factors, as well as losing her self-confidence due to her situation, Linda Anderson finally landed a job exactly one year after going unemployed.
By way of advising other graduates or young people who are currently experiencing unemployment, Linda says it is helpful to keep oneself busy with other life activities or engage in internships through which employment opportunities can arise.
Meanwhile, the Executive Vice-Chair of N8tive Bar, Madam Adubea Ayisi, has revealed 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.
