When we are at Campus, it is a few times when we are told about what to expect after. While still studying, we imagine we shall study and finish and find a white collar, millions a month job waiting for us but that is not the reality. Alvin, from Makerere University Business School (MUBS) seeks advise.

So uhm, I expected to struggle to find a job after campus, as is the norm in Uganda. And as such, I didn’t expect to have a smooth ride after my university education. But like any other person that has finished Campus, I moved my applications for jobs.

Every day I made out of my hostel and traversed the streets of Kampala. Dropping so many applications in various companies and not even getting a “sorry we can’t take you on” response. Despite the no replies and resulting disappointment I kept pushing on.

Meanwhile I would inform my girlfriend about where I see hope and when things fail. Little did I know she’d eventually start getting tired of my being jobless and eventually lose interest.

Just a recap, while at campus, I was on government sponsorship. So when you add on the upkeep from my parents, I really had money. We’d share it. Life was good I tell you. And I had never envisioned any moment where this sweet dream would collapse in front of me.

I have been two months jobless now and I am really hustling here and there to even afford some airtime and data. Long story short, in the past few days she told me that she’s getting tired. I think this is a hint that she wants to leave.

I want to hold on and keep telling her that things will eventually be okay, though another thought says I should let go of her and hustle on alone since she’s losing it already. At the moment, it doesn’t seem like am going to get a job soon to re-ignite her interest. What should I do? Please give me some advice.

Best regards,
Alvin (MUBS)
