EDUCATION

A graduate Now; What Next?

Expectation After Graduation

Congratulations to all the graduate from the university of Buea. You thought after graduation the government or companies  will give you jobs and pay you monthly salary. The job market is too competitive and even the best states on earth can never employ all it citizens not to talk of corrupt nations in Africa. You are the captain of your soul. Don’t blame anyone for your predicaments, fight for yourself.

In school, you are being thought to discover life opportunities  so you can still be a boss of yourself.  Go read the book “Rich dad poor dad” by Robert Kiyosaki. If you are smart enough you can still come out and be employed by the government or a company which is still cool We are not going to be here forever.

Remember the password? “you must survive” Your pay might be small but you must not amaze all the wealth on earth. If you cannot make it that big, chill, that is the best you can afford. But if you can make it big, do it nobody should rush you. It’s a free world.

Never Discourage People

If business doesn’t work for you, don’t discourage those who do business. If school doesn’t work for you, don’t discourage those who go to school. I made it in business, you made it in school. Remember our goal is to put food on the table.

If you studied well in school and graduated as a good engineer and later got employed by a big engineering company. You will be happy. People work in those big companies that gained knowledge from school? Did you learned well?  Wole Soyinka and Chinwe Achebe made with knowledge from school. Jack Ma made it out of school yes! and so what. Are you him? Can you manage a small bonbon and biscuit business? If  you can do it do it quietly.

The road to success greatly depended on you. Do what works for you and don’t discourage people. Not everyone will succeed in business because  the business  alone is not an easy task. You made it because you are smart. Find out the differences between going to school and being educated.

The Jobs Of The Future Don’t Even Exist Yet

We live in an era where knowledge becomes rapidly outdated. New forms of technology keep evolving day in day out and the world is changing rapidly. What is true today might not be true tomorrow which means that, what you learn today becomes useless because you can`t apply it again any where in the world  tomorrow.

Many theories that appears so relevant yesterday have been debunked today because its no longer strong or true enough to support facts and reality. Minimum required level of expertise continues to shift with each passing generation.

In such a dynamic world, how do you stand out for the challenge ahead? The secrete might just be that, you study out of your field or do things that are out of your profession. There are people who studied  physics but today, they  work as  bankers. You might never know where your career of impact will take you,  you end up working in roles for which you never studied.

In the future, success will come not only from what you studied and know best but from how well you learn and adjust. You were born without your permission but your future is in your hands Work.
