Life Of An Agriculture Graduate
Yes! I made it, mom and dad am now a graduate. I'm so grateful to god for helping me all through the five years I spent in the university. I enrolled for NYSC and in a year I'll br done and then I'll face my career and make my parents proud.
Here I am teaching biology in a secondary school as a corper, what have this got to do with what I studied in the university? What happened to posting a graduate to where they can improve on their knowledge or even contribute a quota of their knowledge to aid the country or state. What happened to the sending us to agricultural development programs (ADPs) .
Fortunately, now that we are done with NYSC , life becomes so real. Some of us will enroll for masters degree program, some of us will start up business not related to agriculture and others will go back to business they left before going to obtain a degree claiming that they only wanted to get a certificate and be a graduate. Some of us will apply for a job in commercial and agricultural banks and get NO VACANCY reply. Some of us will apply to work in big farms and they expect us to have at least five years working experience. Then we will remember we are agro-preneurs and we can be self employed, sadly lack of capital will pose as a barrier.
What do I do as an agriculture graduate? Did u really spend five years for nothing? What do I do now?
