Imagine a handsome and well-to-do young man, a bachelor for that matter. He’s ready and set for marriage. He embarks on a search for his better half. He’s looking for a beautiful woman.
A down-to-earth woman. A peaceful, caring and loving woman. A woman who can take care of his home and children. Is that too much? Well, that’s his specification and choice. He has a need and he has to fill it.
Meanwhile, there are lots of spinsters out there looking to get married. As the saying goes, there are more women than men. In fact the “spinsterhood market” is condensed.
So why can’t this young man just pick one out of the many single girls out there. The reason is simple. He hasn’t seen anyone that fits his spec. He doesn’t care if the “spinsterhood market” is condensed. All he cares about is the right woman who can fill his needs.
Naturally, Man, unlike God is selfish.
Analogous to the above scenario is the labour market. The ratio of job seekers to employers is about an alarming 1000 : 1, if not more.
Employers don’t care about the unemployed. No employers goal is to reduce unemployment rate in any country. Most times, there goal is to make money. Sorry. Man is selfish.
Every employer/company has needs. They need a good accountant who can manage their finances, They need an exceptional web developer who can manage their web site. The need an experienced Building Engineer who can manage their works and projects. Are you good, exceptional or experienced. They need to fill these needs.
Lesson: Stop complaining. You annoy me when you do. Well, i guess my emotions and opinion don’t count in your life.
Quit saying there are no jobs. There are. There are things to do. People have needs. Find them, fill them. Get yourself equipped with a new skill.
Who doesn’t have just a degree today? Is that all you can offer? SMH for you.
Learn a computer program. Learn how to sell a product. Learn French. Get a Masters degree or even a PHD. Learn AUTOCAD. Learn PeachTree. Sharpen your convincing skills. Go out there and learn something that will make you stand out from the crowd. You’ll find employers begging to employ you.
Trust me on this. This sh*t works like charm.
I guess my opinion counts now.
