Don’t Allow Age To Determine Your Employability by Pawilliamthomas(m): 10:59pm On Jul 02, 2020
I have seen a lot of drama from when the N-Power portal was open for application. Since they placed the age barrier at 35 years, it limits people who are above that age from applying. Because of that, people had to do everything they could to be eligible.
Am not writing this article to judge anyone. I am rather concerned with how we have allowed the government, people, or systems to determine our employability.
I understand that the unfairness of life and the unpredictability of events could leave people vulnerable and limit their capacity for development. For example, some people finished their secondary education early but couldn’t afford the resources to attain university education. If they eventually get to the university, they would spend four or five years to graduate, extending their age. Tell me, what age would they have left to enter the job market, and land on a job?.
In my rating, those who got an NYSC exemption certificate could be better employees and workers over those who went on service. Why did I say that? They are already a bundle of experience and maturity needed in a workplace for productivity.
I call on the government and employees to lift the bar or limit used as the determinant of who is eligible for employment and who is not.
Also, those people caught up with the limits should please think smarter and faster. Work at deploying your expertise and experience into something productive. Start your company. Become an employer of labor. Don’t put your future into the hands of the government, people, or system. You are with more than the labels, labels, or limitations.
