Young blood

With academic qualifications being considered one of the most important things in a youth’s life, the fact that in every youth resides a capability to doing something seems to have been overshadowed.

Is an academic degree important when it comes to getting a job? We often see that whenever a vacancy is announced by a firm, the important points to focus are the degree and experience. And as far as one’s desire and interest are concerned, they don’t really count. A fresher studying in the bachelor’s level finds it hard to get a proper job in the Nepali corporate world. We see that most of the students are either working in a position that is lower than what they deserve or are just studying to earn a degree.

The point is whether Nepal’s corporate market is ready to explore the imaginative world of young and enthusiastic people and use it to its optimum level. Know the fact that whatever the country is doing, it is for the generation to come. Every product launched in the market is focused on the need of the upcoming generation. The simplest of the simplest gadgets to the most sophisticated equipment have all been designed keeping in mind the future generation’s requirement. However, our Nepali corporate world seems to be neglecting the youth who make up the upcoming generation.

Ask what the youth are looking forward to and their expectations from the market. The answer to which you will get from the question asked. When you recruit youths and ask them what they want, they are the ones who will be answering every question of yours. When so many young people are ready to put their fresh minds to use to bring something new, exciting and useful for their own generation, the Nepali market seems to be ignoring all this talent.

With academic qualifications being considered one of the most important things in a youth’s life, the fact that in every youth resides a capability to doing something seems to have been overshadowed. Youths are at the stage in their lives when they are capable of managing time for their studies besides doing a job. No youth would want to be left out later due to lack of experience.

Many have said and written that the youth of our country are deserving. Yet, the world to which we belong waits for the top academic qualification. Our youth with the zest for doing something from this very age are moving ahead with the expectation that the corporate world will respond to their enthusiasm.

Aren’t the job markets of Nepal ready to accept the challenge of letting new talent penetrate the competitive world and compete with the existing workforce with their new ideas? It’s high time the entire market realised that Nepali youth are all raring to go, for no longer does an age bar exist for us to achieve something professionally.
