This may shock you but the most successful job in Kenya at the moment is being self-employed. Yes! you read it very correctly…Being Self Employed!
While the world unemployment rate is widely growing annually and most people are staying idle and completely in lack, in Kenya statistics have shown that the jobs available are not enough for the growing population.
But despite this sad statistics, many individuals have refused to be bent by the surrounding circumstances. Instead of wailing over being unemployed, they simply confronted the problem head-on, started a business for themselves according to their skills and are making money today; while others do nothing but worry.
Though it comes with its own fair share of risks, it should be noted that nothing good comes easy too. Finding a permanent employment is still a tough deal to reach.
Even newly graduated students from highly competitive schools are also struggling to be employed in the company of their choice. So the best way to solve the problem of unemployment in Kenya is simply, by becoming self employed.
Kenyans need to take it upon themselves to explore the innovative ways to fight against unemployment. The era of lazing around waiting to be employed while wasting the ‘small’ business idea we’ve got because formal employment comes with much puffs has passed.
It is now the era of creating jobs and being the boss of our own.
