Looks so much like undergraduates are the most endangered in the cycle of unemployment both at the major and minor economic sectors. But seeking to establish an astounding career odds and going against convention can be the only way out.

Now allow me to explain myself.

I come from a country, I don’t know about you, where the best you are told to do for yourself is;

  • Get a jamb form

  • Take a jamb examination and make good grades

  • Apply for admission in an accredited university and pass the screening exercises

  • Get in and face studies strictly.

  • After graduation, get a job if you find one. And if not, blame the government because you have fulfilled all righteousness.

Because these are the regular societal expectations, it shapes our perception and perspective about career inclinations including how we define it.

But I really hope that your career odds will increase in your favour after the next few paragraphs are done processing in your memory.

Welcome to the world of change for learners only.

In a  time of change , only learners will inherit the world, while the learned will find themselves in a beautiful world that doesn’t exist”, Albert Einstein .

Welcome to the new world of knowledge and for learners “and if you feel you are learned, then sorry you’re old" my Boss would say. We are more concerned right now about the kind of education undergraduates get lately.  Such that will set odds in their favour at their career level without leaving you at the mercy of any employer.

You should take all your academic curriculum activities including your final year research projects if you must but then it is necessary you give  a chance to self-development and the opportunities you stand to gain.
