A young graduate has hit the street as a pure water seller after being unemployed for a long time.
The young Ghanaian, identified as Elvis finished from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in 2016 with a bachelor’s degree in Natural Resources Management.
Speaking with YEN.com.gh, he said that after completing school and finding it difficult to secure a stable job, he started selling pure water on commercial basis.
Elvis also revealed that he had previously worked as a contractor, but after the contract expired, he had go stay home and start job searching all over. According to him, he has been without a regular 9-5 job for three months now but he decided to start his own business, after staying home for a month.
“I had my national service after school and since then, I have been in and out of quite a few jobs because I have never landed a full time job, just contracts,” he said.
“My place isn’t a big town, and the cars which supply the bags of water do not come here everyday. So sometimes there will be shortage of bags of water in town because the trucks to deliver the water would not come! I therefore thought it wise to venture into that business,” he explained.
He revealed that he had been in the business for the past three months, but he wishes to secure a corporate job soon.
He said; “Looking forward to gain a corporate job and this will be my part time job, which I intend to continue doing regardless.”
