GRADUATES AND THE SURVIVAL GAME (PART 2)

The fear of life after school and all that goes with it is a burning issue of general interest that always give a great number of graduates a lot of anxiety and challenges to contend with.

One of the basic challenges of graduates and school leavers is how to establish an equilibrium with their environment- how to position themselves to achieve self-actualization in an increasing difficult, hostile and highly competitive environment such as ours.
ALSO READGRADUATES AND THE SURVIVAL GAME PART 1 BY ADEOGUN

Ours is an environment where there are employers who will exploit and make a monkey out of graduates by giving them peanuts as wages.

Look at the odds against you and ask yourself these basic questions: Are you prepared to achieve? Do you have what it takes to win- to live the life you wish? Or would you rather settle for the life someone else has scripted for you?

In getting answers to these questions, the following tips will be beneficial to you:

1. SELF-ACTUALIZATION (being in charge): In the process of asking the society for job, we all become dependent and fail miserably to acquire the needed competence to achieve self-actualization. You need to be in charge of things- the driver of things and not being driven. Ask yourself: Does the government really owe you a job? Does the society owe you anything? Does anybody owe you anything?

2. SELF-DISCOVERY: The major factor for achieving success in life or any endeavour is self-discovery. Just discover yourself and you are on your way to making it in life. The starting point is self- an attitude that says you are the best and deserve the best and you should get the best. Once this happens, you begin to see the need for acquiring the needed competence to win and succeed. You don’t know who you are until you see what you can do. Regular employment is good, it gives you the necessary contacts and the needed capital, however, we have a huge price to pay, but the fact remains that you can be in charge, giving order instead of obeying them. With the fulfilment of your potential, you stand a better chance of being in charge than in some government establishment or company position where you will be a mere statistics.

3. UNDYING SPIRIT TO ACHIEVE: Achieving is a thing of resolve and persistent- an attitude and a thing of determination and strong belief. The undying spirit to achieve and your knowledge of a particular business go a long way in achieving the needed enthusiasm to succeed in the chosen endeavour. An achiever is determined, always resolve to succeed under any circumstance and has the belief that nothing should hold him back from making it. An achiever has the pervading zeal to be the first and always the first, to be nothing else but the best. To be the one who dictates the pace of play, most especially in the corporate game.

4. SELF-RELIANCE AND SELF-EMPLOYMENT: If you have a business degree, economics or any other related degree and hoping to work in a bank, an oil company, government corporation or multinational company, this is cool and okay. You have waited for so long and it seems like eternity. Suppose instead of waiting, you admit a simple reality and take some simple actions. The reality is that mere possessing qualification (business degree or otherwise) does not guarantee automatic employment unless your father is well connected. While it is good to think big because shallow thinkers never make big impression. It is also practical to start from the beginning with discretionary resources. The simple action you may consider taking for example, is starting a business venture/enterprise. You can say this man is insulting me. I have a degree for God’s sake and this crazy man is asking me to start trading. I’m a graduate, damn it! Sure you are! You can even say it is insane. It is insane until you see the facts. You don’t want to be dependent or statistical figure in any government corporation or company; you want to be in charge.

If you think about it for a moment, a business venture/enterprise is not such a bad or lonely idea. If you use your knowledge of customer relation management, pricing policy, marketing of services, positioning strategy and such like, before you know it, you’re in money, you’ve made it. Will you stop complaining and get down to business! Believe me, in two years time, you will forget my insulting you because you will be too busy counting fortunes.
