If you’ve tried digging a well with a spoon before, then you understand what searching for a job in Nigeria means; even with the right skills, you’ still find yourself wandering on the pages of newspapers and job portals for light years. Right now, and in the next few years, there’s no panacea to job unemployment in Nigeria or anywhere else in the world; and unless you go out of your comfort zone to effectively search for a job, you’d be nothing more than a dead fish going with the unemployment flow. The good news is- there are jobs; but the obvious challenge for job seekers is finding the right job and finding it fast. Here are some techniques to getting a job in a matter of Usain-Bolt-seconds. All right, maybe not as fast, but close enough.
Ghana, over the last two decades, has succeeded in providing a marginal solution to the problem of unemployment and poverty. The impact of implementation of stabilization and structural adjustment policies are being used as a vehicle to enhance economic growth and development.
The success of any adjustment program depends on a well-functioning and flexible labour market in which labour allocation is done through the market mechanism, and also creates sufficient incentives for human capital investment. The presence of wage rigidities or labour mobility raises basic questions in terms of the effectiveness of macroeconomic policy and the extent to which the supply response necessary for adjustment will be forthcoming.
Standard economic theory suggests that markets are often the most efficient institutions for the allocation of scarce resources because they adjust demand and supply, and hence any rent opportunities would be arbitraged away. However in reality, there are frictions, unobservable characteristics, adjustment costs, different expectations, and probably discrimination in markets that tend to drive market equilibrium away from efficient allocation...” These are the words of the Bank of Ghana in a 2007 report on the labour sector. Though this is as true today as it was then, we cannot ignore the conspicuous changes and developments the Ghanaian market has seen over the past few years.
Many people do jobs, not to be happy primarily, but to; put food on the table, have clothes to wear, pay the bills etc. which, for the most part, are wrong reasons but a necessary evil.
A job is what you do to get paid, not essentially what you do to be happy, but more about financial security. A career on the other hand is any chosen pursuit involving your interests, knowledge and skills; which may either involve different unrelated jobs in the same field or similar jobs in different fields. A career is a lifetime journey for creating and making good use of your skills, knowledge and experience, integrated into all the activities, events and relationships in your life.
