A young man has preached entrepreneurship and the need for graduates to arm themselves with employable skills in a fresh interview by revealing how much he makes as an Uber driver despite being a university graduate.
Karim Osman, by extension, said graduates who complain about the unavailability of jobs lack seriousness because many opportunities can make a steady income.
He mentioned that he received applications after graduating from Ghana Telecom University in 2016 but that the offer was not enticing enough.
He made the decision to become a driver as a result. Karim continued to say that most graduates dislike “dirty occupations” because they believe such positions are of low quality but pay the greatest money in a conversation on SVTV Africa with DJ Nyaami.
“A company offered ¢350 after school, but it wasn’t enough…These graduates are not serious. If you don’t know someone who will put you on after school, then you should start something. They are not serious.
A lot of them feel certain jobs are below their standard. It’s high time they think beyond that. It is a stepping stone,” he said.
According to Karim, he makes something beyond ¢4,000 in a month. He claimed that because of his work, many people disregarded him.
However, he generates more revenue than some graduates. He advised others to start a business undertaking or engage in a large firm rather than just waiting for something like a corporate job.
