Due to 'distance,' a 23-year-old University of Ghana graduate reportedly rejected down a GH2,500 employment offer. 

BigGodwin Martey said on Facebook that he was supporting the woman in getting this job after she completed her mandatory National Service at COCOBOD, but she declined. 

He commented on Facebook that it's too far from her home in Kokomlemle to Spintex. 

"I'm assisting a friend with his recruitment, and he's offering this lady Ghc2,500." No experience for a 23-year-old University of Ghana graduate with a BSc in Information Technology. COCOBOD was where I did my National Service.

He wrote, "Lady claims she lives in Kokomlemle, thus it's too far away, she won't take the job." 

He went on to say that in his efforts to assist many young people, he has discovered a pattern that shows that many of them are simply interested in internet popularity and are not enthusiastic about corporate job. 

"I'm going to keep saying it. The issue with today's youngsters is LAZINESS, not unemployment. And, in assisting friends with employment, I've witnessed a variety of circumstances that demonstrate how the younger and upcoming generations are tiktok crazy but unprepared for the actual world of corporate job," he added.

BigGodwin Martey, the post's author, also took the opportunity to share some of his job experience. 

He added that, among other things, he had to journey between Accra and Koforidua on a regular basis due to his profession. 

"Guys, back when Websoft was in a little store at Bombay Fadama and I didn't have anywhere to stay in Accra, I slept in Koforidua in my uncle's house at Kenkey Factory for about a year and came to work at Websoft every day."

"It doesn't matter if your father is Dr Kwaku Oteng or Dr Despite; you may go anywhere." But if you're like me and think Kokomlemle to Spintex is too far for a new graduate with no experience, then we have a case on our hands as a country," he added. 

Ghana's unemployment rate continues to rise, with job possibilities becoming scarcer by the day, despite the fact that an increasing number of graduates enter the workforce each year.
