Having read about the unsettled argument of whether Nigerian graduates are employable or not, different views, which are expected to, ensued on such assertions. But whether true or not, a step against in order to get ahead of such excuse from employers lies in your hand and the keyword here is self development.
A friend of mine once approached his uncle who happened to be the Chief recruiting officer of a big firm. He asked; “Are Nigerian graduates really unemployable?“. He looked at him and replied; “ Yes! And this is simply due to the fact that most of them are personally under-developed, therefore they tend to experience under-employment“.
Since this is a known vice, it can then be avoided. How? This is where self development sets in. Self development is a lifelong process. It’s a way for people to develop their skills and qualities, consider their aims in life and set goals in order to realise and maximise their potential.
