Looking For A Job…

Having been a jobless man in the past, let me offer some advice to my brothers & sisters joining the workforce (or are planning to):

  • Dissociate what you did in school with looking for a job: Unless you did Medicine or Law, very few people work strictly within their disciplines. In light of this remember that commercial companies are only interested in two things. (Increasing revenue & reducing cost.) Every employee in every company is doing one or the other & that is their value to the organisation. (Increase revenue or reduce cost.)
  • Most companies are not too concerned about what you did in campus but interested in what you can do for them: University education usually indicates that you have some brains between your ears & will let you have a foot in the door… The rest is up to you!
