Stu­dents can be their own bosses, not job-hunters

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

Most stu­dents in this gen­er­a­tion go to school with an aim of be­ing em­ployed by an in­di­vid­ual or a com­pany. This mind­set should be changed since not all those who have a de­gree will get an em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­nity. Train­ing in­sti­tu­tions should im­part ideas to them so that they can be their own bosses and work in­de­pen­dently. By do­ing so, they’ll get a chance to em­ploy other peo­ple, re­duc­ing the rate of un­em­ploy­ment in our coun­try. The slo­gan should be, for ex­am­ple, “Ed­u­ca­tion for knowl­edge and in­no­va­tion”. Stu­dents should be brought to this real­ity.
