We have heard through various news mediums that most companies are feeling the pinch of the hard times and that a lot of them are laying of workers one by one. However the good news is that there are some companies that are still opening their doors for potential jobs. The bad thing is that they are putting into priority local people rather than foreign workers.
What is the philosophy behind it all? It is really quite simple. Why turn to the foreign workers if you have local talent to fill them up? It is not a complicated theory. Local residents need to be given the priority regardless if better qualified people are available abroad.
If there is one thing that should be addressed that is to build economies with local talent. There are groups that believe that the best people for a job come from other countries which is really debatable. There are local people who can fill up these jobs and in most cases, they are overlooked.
Countries have their own educational systems which often produce good manpower options. The problem is that some of them choose to go abroad for better compensation. But this was yesterday’s news.
Today, such is a limited option and with the declaration that foreign workers will be cut, perhaps these graduates should test the local markets for the time being and put their expertise to work. This can even signal a better output in applying their various philosophies to help their local country’s current problems.
