For a lot of young Ghanaians, the last two months of National Service can be scary with no prospects of a job offer on the horizon.

Finally, the day comes, National Service is over, then you’re at home.

While you try to keep your mental health in check, you have family and friends asking “what’s next?”

You have friends calling and texting to find out if you were maintained or you got a job offer elsewhere.

Ghanaians have been sharing how long it took for them to gain employment after NSS and how emotionally draining it was.
