The Job Market is continually evolving, resulting in a mismatch of skills between education and industry requirement, insufficient jobs, and inadequate support systems. On average, it takes university graduates in Africa up to six years to find their first job. But on the demand side, even when jobs are available, employers struggle to find right-type candidates.
