Well, I know many graduates float without work (they are not in formal employment). I am a person who uses boda boda (motorcycle or bicycle taxi) cyclist for my transport and I always chat with many of them. One of them told me that: “You see, I did a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration at Makerere University, but all along there was no job.”
According to him, he started to hire a motorcycle to operate as boda boda transport, so that he could get something little after paying for the hire. And he planned to begin saving by depositing to one of the companies that deals in sale of motorcycles. He ended up buying a new motorcycle and now he owns. But he still operates boda boda, as he also keeps applying for jobs.
I want to advise youth not to feel shy. The way a door opens to earn a living is given differently. All ways lead to Rome. Begin from nowhere, but you succeed in life.
