For many youth, that dream is fast diminishing after years of being unemployed and Theresah Adusei is no different.

Theresah Adusei graduated with first-class honours in Information Studies and Psychology from the University of Ghana in 2019.She was hopeful of landing a lucrative white colour job, however, after three years that hope of landing the ideal eight- to-five job has diminished. Since graduating, all Theresah focused on was landing a job.“When I was about completing service, that was when I started a job hunt, but you send CVs you don’t get feedback .”

One year after she failed to land a job, Theresah reminisced on her father’s words during her graduation. At the time, although he was happy to see her graduate, he was unimpressed with her first class degree.“He said with a first-class, getting a job in this country is very difficult, I really felt sad. It was very heartbreaking, because I thought it was my breakthrough. So when I applied for a job in the Civil Service, went through the interview and everything, I thought I was going to prove him wrong, only for me to find out I wasn’t called.”
