The "employment syndrome" crippled entrepreneurial initiative of indigenous Zimbabwe. What are the causes and suggest various innovative ways to curb employment syndrome?


You have an interesting question. It would be important to define and describe the "employment syndrome" in Zimbabwe. If your audience is very familiar with this term, then you just need a sentence or two. If you were writing to a U.S. audience, they would probably not know the situation at all, and you would need to give a fuller explanation and examples.

The second part of the question is actually a different kind of essay, a problem solution essay. However, it is often true that these two types of essays are linked. As I point out in "How to Write a Problem Solution Essay," you must first determine the most important causes of a problem before you can decide on a solution. How you write this essay would depend on whether the most important point you want to make is to discuss the causes, or to provide some innovative solutions. If you are intending to write mostly about the causes, then the body of the paper (the main middle part) should have a detailed description and analysis of the causes and then you can give some brief ideas of innovative solutions in the conclusion.

If your main point is to discuss solutions, then the first one or two paragraphs should describe the situation and the causes and the body of the paper should give detailed ideas of how to solve this problem. The conclusion could then explain how those solutions are the best because they are the most feasible, practical and effective.
