Takoradi, July 31, GNA
– The youth have been called upon to carefully prepare themselves for the job
market to enable them have access to the limited job openings.

Mr Abraham Opare-Zisu,
Managing Director of the South East Company Limited expressed the need for one
to say jobs were difficult to come by would be an understatement because there
are job opportunities in the system.

The CEO at a day’s
seminar on Job opportunities in the Maritime and Energy sector said the lack of
information on the job market, the requisite skills employers look out for,
professional certification and experience among others had accounted for the
numerous unemployment in the country.

The South East Company
and Support Services, a recruitment agency said it felt obligated as a
corporate entity to help orient the unemployed and those seeking personal and
career advancement on the opportunities, which abounded in the Western Region
and how they could tap into it.

Mr Opare-Zisu said:
“|This is why we have assembled industry experts in the maritime and
energy sectors to tell you what it takes to be part of the industry.”

He said he was hopeful
that the seminar would open doors of opportunities for the youth in the
Metropolis and the Region would in the not too distant future assume commanding
roles in industry.

He urged the youth to
take their destiny into their own hands adding: “If you take such programmes
seriously, make diligent efforts through seeking regular interaction with
mentors, coupled with discipline and humility then you are good to go.

“I have come to
realize that young graduates are always seeking for middle class employment and
are not ready to start from scratch and progress. This also is a concern in the
labour market. Job opportunities may come, but may be at the lower
fringes.”

He advised the youth
and the unemployed to take advantage of job seminars, learn on the job and seek
personal development to usher them into a bright future.
