“Young professionals should have more to offer than their Certificates”

In recent times, I have had to work with younger colleagues more than I had in my career journey and one thing that baffles me is the way most of these guys comfortably earn their pay with so much mediocrity oozing from them.

No drive, enthusiasm to give more, no initiatives, bad work ethics, bad sense of entitlement and much more and when they negotiate their pay, they call it with no conscience without having anything to offer.

In some cases their assistants who are not as educated as them do fantastic jobs that you wonder why you should not pay them more.

This made me wonder, does our certificate amount to anything?

Do you think you deserve what you earn just because you studied to be a professional and not add value to your organisation? Your organisation or work place is not growing and you are not worried because your pay is not affected.
It’s a such a shame that this is popular among many professionals.

For me, your certificate doesn’t amount to anything, your experience is not important if you have no value to offer me.

Organisations thrives only when THERE IS EXCHANGE OF VALUE and if you don’t have that to give then all you deserve is to be at home and sleep.

Maybe if people know that they only have their jobs for 3 months and after every quarter their retainer  will be determined on the value delivered and performance, they will strive to do better.

Dear one, before you take off, will you at least decide to do your job well?

Do you agree with this?

Honestly, I really wish workers can see through the eye of value.

I share your view. I work in the civil service and I often wonder how these men and women think of themselves when they say, “afterall my salary is assured” and they rot with each passing day. I just avoid those people before they spoil my blues with their reggae.
