Abstract


The whole idea about entrepreneurship is to create self-employment and job for others.  Today, much of the thinking about entrepreneurship skill development revolves more around the production of goods and plays down on selling and marketing.  Most people, particularly young graduates for some reasons have perceived entrepreneurial undertaking with respect to selling as a difficult stride to achieve. This has added to the numerous problems befalling entrepreneurship skill learning. This conceptual paper situates entrepreneurship opportunities in social and management sciences within the service offer of freelance salesmanship. The Thesis is that graduates of social and management sciences are readily self-employable if properly orientated in the skills of selling. Even more to it, they are agents of job creation. Raising this consciousness among academics and students particularly becomes necessary because, again, the major problem of most manufacturing and service-providing organizations is not creating a job, rather, there is no money to pay salaries and allowances to those who may be engaged on the job due to lack of sales.
