The mistake most students make while in school is to seat down and wait for their parents to work and send money to them at the end of the month. Though it’s their responsibility but once you realize you can start making things happen for yourself your perspective of life changes. The moment you realize that you are responsible for your life and that your future is determined by the things you do today you will begin to search for ways to make your future better.
In Nigeria today, thousands if not millions of student both enter and graduate from the university yearly making the labour market crowded and the jobs are few no wonder we have lots of unemployed graduates. There are no white collar jobs anymore except you have people in high position to secure a job for you.
