You Are Reading: Why You Must Enhance Your Skillset.
Skillset enhancement is a highly useful tool that can bring an employee into a position where they can do their job correctly, effectively, and conscientiously.
It equally constitutes a basic concept in human resource development.
With the changes in times, individuals have discovered different means of getting trained in a skill. Where as some go for online others prefer the manual classroom training.
In the old, our parents were trained on skills like carpentry, tailoring, mechanics and others, even though still regarded today, only few who don’t want to find themselves in the four walls of a classroom excel exquisitely.
But unfortunately, in the developed world, individuals study or learn carpentry, tailoring Mechanics and others, as an education and they become masters of that skill or trade. They go to school to be trained and furnished in a particular skill of interest and graduate as practising professionals.
Just recently, some youths have discovered the importance of certain skills, some even Graduate from the University, because they don’t have jobs, they resort to learning hairdressing, some boys go for barbing as a profession, just to make a living.
Whereas if they had incorporated their skill set into their education schedule, they’ll have been better at it, making money while schooling, and wouldn’t resort to it as a low class or petite-survival alternative, as our society paints.
Some youths are beginning to understand the Cameroon system, where by without a godfather making the way for you, consider yourself a vegetable in the society.
That’s why the majority of them now are engaging in skill acquisition after or during their University education, an evident place to identify this is Buea (Molyko City) where some youths are found doing different things, selling, doing part-time jobs, and if you check on some of their statuses on WhatsApp, basically every one of them is into one skill or the other, like Online Marketing, Some engage in Cooking food and delivery.
The Competitive exams atmosphere in Cameroon and the recruitment procedure do not favour the common man, so the only way for the common man to survive in the streets and this country is get himself not herself a skill by getting trained.
There are free online Trainings that offer you certificates after you complete a course. People are engaging into Graphic Designing, Social Media Marketing, Video Editing and other important skills.
Some get trained on Human Resource Management, Project Management, and Data Entry as some of these are hot cake in the job market.
But now the issue is how aware are some people when it comes to getting trained especially in Cameroon where the government jobs have already been programmed for some people.
If I am not mistaking, the President of the Republic said youths should go to the farm, well to it is not a bad idea, because farming is not a degrading venture, the problem here is some are ashamed to engage in farming, but that is what paid the some people’s tuition fee in the University.
There are Agricultural programs and Training that are offered free to people who are interested to learn.
The soil has never disappointed our parents, why in our own generation we shy away from it.
White-collar jobs are for the powerful in society. Build your own empire from the training you acquire. There is training that requires only an Android phone or a Laptop for you to get it all done.
People have succeeded from what they learnt on YouTube, Alison.com and other learning platforms.
Make use of your time while you still control or have power over it.
