Mindset shift from that of a job seeker to a job a creator

Students pursuing their Master’s or Ph.D. degrees should gradually shift their mindset from that of job seekers to job creators

I recently came across an interesting statement made by Asa Ashika, the manager of singer Davido, where he expressed, “While I may not possess a degree, I am proud to be responsible for the salaries of 100 individuals!” Asa’s remarkable success can be attributed to his unwavering passion, relentless dedication, and remarkable creativity. However, I can’t help but wonder how much more effective he could be as a manager if he had a formal education. This reflection leads me to believe that individuals who hold degrees yet struggle with unemployment should take a moment to introspect and ask themselves how they can identify problems in their surroundings and become solution providers or creators of value.

I recall organizing a workshop titled “Turn Your Research into Profitable Startups” specifically aimed at postgraduate students. The event was a resounding success, and I am eagerly looking forward to planning a similar gathering in the future. It is my sincere belief that students pursuing their Master’s or Ph.D. degrees should gradually shift their mindset from that of job seekers to job creators. By doing so, they can unlock their entrepreneurial potential and make significant contributions to the world.
