Unemployment is a major challenge in the developing Nations of the world. Curbing Unemployment rate is very tasking and high even in some developed nations. Most
responsible leaders and government are putting in effort in providing jobs for as many individuals as possible. While some of them are on the fence. Irrespective of the situation, we shouldn’t totally rely on the government to solve the problem of curbing unemployment rate. It’s should be contributed effort. In line with this, I came up with some of the skills out there that people find odd and hard to acquire.
Skills acquisition involves so much more than being a handy man or hairdresser. The is nothing wrong with it though. Handymen and women are the ultimate heroes. In acquiring extra skills we have to think outside the confinement of an old dirty box. Let’s take it deeper than the regular skills acquisition in order to for us to effectively deal with the problem of curbing unemployment rate in our nation’s.
There are so many things to do and earn a living in this presence uptight and competitive world. Come to think of it, why do we love rushing a particular occupation. When once a person start-up a business and it is profitable, everyone will cast their nets on it. There are many other fishes in the river to catch. Don’t focus on catfish alone, what happened to crayfish, whales, crabs, shrimp, titus, tilapia, crocodile, hippopotamus, etc. We can’t effectively work on curbing unemployment rate if we are all doing the same thing.
Carpentry is a noble occupation, but many people shy away from it. Any work is good Its all about being excellence and packaging. In one of my previous post I wrote about combining skills with education to become excellent in your field. I have seen a millionaire carpenter.
The is no superior profession, occupation or handwork, it matter of packaging and priorities we give to it. There are very little difference between a banker and ajo collectors. Ajo collectors are people who go from door to door to collect money and keep for people who don’t want to put their money in bank. Its all about packaging because someone saw that it will be profitable, respectable and more assuring, to put suit and tie on some educated people in the field of calculation and convincing. Build a nice office and put them and called them bankers, accountants, or financial advisers, the rest is history. On a long run curbing unemployment rate was solved in a big way. Your money is safe, they get rich and everyone is happy.
There are a lot of opportunities to harness in agricultural sector. Some Africa youth see farming as a poor and illiterate people job. simply because they are not wearing designers suit. There are different aspects of agriculture to go into in order to bring a decrease in unemployment rate. We have fishery, poultry, horticulture, cattle rearing, plantation and so many. You would even go into producing and supplying fertilizer for the farmers in large scale.You can go into post production farming, packaging, processing, marketing and exporting the finish or raw products.
Choose a particular field and major in it. Do not jump from pillar to pole. If you want to do pineapple farming make sure it is pineapple and nothing else. Get a big land and plant pineapple. Live and breath pineapple. Profit will surely fall in line and unemployment is curb in a way.
You love fashion and have talent and skills it requires to survive in the fashion industry. Don’t just think of being a tailor, seamstress and designer. The are many other opportunities in fashion industry. It is also cool to major in the production of the fabrics and materials for making clothes. Find your bearing and excel in it.
there are many genius among us. wasting their gifts because they lack the opportunity and support, waiting for the government and someone to rescue them or invest in them unemployment can’t be curb if you are lazing around.
One of the solutions I can give such people is to link up. Yes linkup. Find others with similar ideas, create something, look for investors and market the hell out of it. The youngest billionaires we have today are those form technology and internet sphere. They have help their various country beat down unemployment rate.
Do not play with your skills. It will do you more good than the government.
There are many lazy and over stressed rich housewives out there looking for easy ways in doing house chores. Find out how you can help find solutions for them and make money.
Many of you have gifted hands, craft something with it. Do not waste that hands waiting to be save by the government.
You may kick the bucket at the process of waiting for government to provide you with job and solve every unemployment problem out there. Take a look at China, they develop their country out of technology.
Nigeria and Africa as a whole are blessed with mineral resources, tap into it. We have coco, rubber, fabrics, oil, fruits, timber, copper, coal, limestone, water, and so much more.
