We were not interviewed for jobs, we only filled forms: Unemployed graduate disappointed in YEA fair

The Youth Employment Agency (YEA) has organized a job fair which took place yesterday at the Accra International Conference Centre. Before the program, there were adverts on the internet about how 100 companies would be coming to do an interview and recruit some of the youths for job positions in these companies. 

Eric Ewua, a gentleman who graduated from Methodist University with a degree in Marketing 7 years ago has also decided to shoot his shot. According to him, he was not interviewed for any job at the event, and that he was only given forms to fill. 

Due to the high rate of youth unemployment in the country, the turn up for the YEA fair was so massive and the crowd of these job-seeking youths was estimated to be in the thousands. The program, however, turned into a stampede as a lot of people struggle for the few job opportunity available. Broken glasses and bloodstains on the floor as a result of injuries to some participants were the result of the stampede.
