Rethinking Education and Employment

Watch Opeyemi Awoyemi of speak at TedxIfe.

Nice talk (forgive the poor video quality), and some interesting statistics:
"66% of job vacancies (in Nigeria) today do not have a specific course as a prerequisite."

"50% of job titles (in Nigeria), as they exist today, did not exist 50 years ago."

"Parents need to understand one simple thing. Do not stifle creativity. Rather, encourage it."
