The saying that the devil finds work for the idle hand is no mean a saying because many countries are at a standstill after the devil has indeed found work in extremist groups for their unemployed youth. Youth unemployment has become the greatest threat to national security in most parts of Africa, and Ghana might not be an exception.
The most worrying aspect of job seeking for the Ghanaian youths is the demand for working experiences from companies that advertise job opportunities.
The Deputy Youth Organizer of the NDC, Edem Agbana, has expressed his displeasure with the growing demands by companies seeking to recruit persons with only working experiences. According to a post he tweeted on Twitter, he said that companies should stop the recycling of old hands and give young graduates a chance to prove themselves.
He begged companies who advertise jobs opportunities and demand five or more years of experience to be sympathetic to the young graduates.
Edem Agbana indicated that in most instances, the fresh graduates are hungrier to prove a point, but they are sidelined just because they don't have working experience.
