I have concluded that the reason why MANY people are not gainfully employed is because of laziness. There are jobs that many people can do but when the job description is given to them they get discourage because they think it’s difficult. This is the mentality many graduates have…I ONLY DESERVE A JOB THAT GIVES ME OFFICIAL CAR, A BUNGALOW, HO– — USE BOY, CLOTHING ALLOWANCE etc. So any job that doesn’t come with some incentives is not their kind of job. Sometimes these excuses and the pick and choose are manifestations of laziness. Most people don’t want to be employed as junior staff and rise through the ranks.
I recently put an adverts out there for some job vacancies and asked interested people to apply. Many of the CV’S that came were very interesting. After going through the CV’S of many that are even graduates you cant employ them. People don’t know how to write a winning CV. Many spelling mistakes, no experience or expertise related to the vacancy. In some people cover letter they state that the reason why they should be employed is because they need money to take care of their family.
Again people don’t like a job where they have to work to make their money. Who is going to pay you when your skills will not bring money to his or her company.
We recently employed some individuals to market a product and even gave them transportation to start them off with the intention of giving them permanent positions after 3 months and most took the transportation and never came back.
In closing people come to work and they can tell their boss that my mother wants me to do some shopping so I will be late, they always come late with all kinds of excuses.
THIS IS A SACK RIGHT THERE. YOUR BOSS IS NEVER YOUR FRIEND.
WORK, WORK, WORK.
