What Has NYSC Done For You? by adele88(m): 3:15pm On Dec 14, 2012
Hi all

I am graduate from the UK, I am due to come back home for NYSC. But I am sceptical of what it actually gives you apart from independence pride and a certificate.. I know all this is important but i am wanted to make money ASAP and I am wondering whether it is helpful in regards to finding jobs. I am not familiar with Nigeria apart from the family that lives there and the 7 time I have visited Lagos. I am hoping to create contacts out there...the overall question is, does NYSC help with getting jobs in London etc..

Any advice would be helpful

One thing about NYSC is that.... If you do not accept where you are posted, you will never enjoy it nor get what you want. Serving as a corper have so many benefit only if you will accept where ever you were posted and face the challenges there. Its worth doing my dear brother.

Sincerely, it doesn't get u a job outside tis country. If u hv political ambitions in 9ja, well, u must hv d cert.
It's fun though. I'm serving @ jigawa state but due 2 d weather ere I requestd 4 relocation 2 osun. (Pls if u can influence ur postin, pls do it ASAP).
Stayin back 9ja, u wuld gain a lot 4rm d scheme but outside 9ja, I doubt xcept contacts 4 biz purposes.

Gave me the opportunity to serve in one of the best manufacturing companies here in Nigeria, in the most basic department and with the best team possible. I learnt that all that time spent studying in school did not really teach one anything,the real lesson is on the field. Plus I got my present job through recommendation from where I served(though still searching for a better one)
Re: What Has NYSC Done For You? by Nobody: 7:22pm On Dec 26, 2012
NYSC is a jolly good waste of time. If i were you, i'd start thinking of self-employment or better still, marry a European (not all those Cajad naija women that managed to get passport) and settle down in Europe,

I hate it when ppl say NYSC is a waste of time. U're meant to serve ur country & not to make money. Later they'll be d 1st to criticize our leaders when they've failed 2 contribute their quota. SMH

I've always maintained that my NYSC year is the best one year of my life so far.
Served in Ahoada, Rivers, didn't really make much money but I must say that my service affected the locals positively and they showed a lot of appreciation in their own little way. This really gave me a sense of fulfilment, pride and relevance. It really does make me sad to hear stories of corps members being killed these days.

NYSC gave me the opportunity to develop myself more on my educational skills; I even got the time to read for my professional courses. It is cheaper to register and write those courses as a corp member...Bro..you got lot to benefit during your service year, though heavily dependent on the place and region of service..I am a serving corp member! ..Merry Christmas

It could be a fun year. Make new friends and you can make plans (too much time, if you ask me) to properly plan on a career etc. If you have to work in Nigeria you need to have the NYSC certificate and to get this the honorable way you need to do the 1yr service.

As you want to return to London, it would be good if you try and do your primary assignment in a company where you get to learn stuff you are interested in. That can help you experience-wise when you go back to the UK as you may not easily get graduate trainee or entry level jobs in your area of interest over there.

You just have to be careful you serve in a relatively safe state or town in Nigeria. Nigeria is not the best country in the world at appreciating the life of its citizens.

I agree with you on this. I served in Bayelsa 7years ago and I truly couldn't have traded it with any other experience even when I had fears the first time I got to Swahili Jetty and all I could see was water without end and my mum told me to come back home but thank God for my younger sister that encouraged me. I still get in touch with my students and I am happy they are doing well in thier various schools. Couldn't have asked for more.
