In Kenya, a high percentage of graduates are jobless and struggling here outside to make the ends meet. Majority of them are doing causal jobs as other's find refuges at their homes with nothing to do to bring something good in their pockets.
David Ndii an economist and a scholar has come out clean on why the current job market does not absorb graduates.
Referring to a Twitter post by Mr. Advocate KE which states, "This girl is a graduate in Actuarial Science First Class Honours, She's operating a Mobile Shop Repair in Imenti Town, Meru Vounty", Ndii states that the labour market does not know or care what is being studied.
He adds that the higher institutions of learnings like Universities have no way of knowing how market will change that is why many end up being jobless upon graduation.
Also in what is said to be referring to Actuarial Science Coarse which has for many days hit the air with many jobles graduates, David Ndii states, "Acturial Science was at a premium about a decade ago. Labour market is by word for information asymmetry."
Therefore, students should always learn smart as they think of creating jobs rather than waiting to be employed.
