|What Must I Do To Get A Job Immediately After Service. by Polchiz(m): 4:18pm On Jul 08, 2013|
It is no longer news that Nigerian graduates find it difficult to get a good job after NYSC regardless of their class of degrees.
Experience as they say is the best teacher.
For those that have passed through this stage and are now working, what pieces of advice do you have for corp members who desire to get job as soon as they complete their service year.
I can do anything that is lawful to achieve this.
Thank you for your time.

I actually log in because of this Big Question U asked. U need 2 + 1 = 3 Tinz to get job after ur NYSC.
1, You need to start applying and submitting ur CV to Firms 3 months to when ur service year will be over and also give ur CV to people who can help u because that's d best way to get a job here in Nigeria
2, U need to Pray To God.
3, U won't like this sha but I have to add it. If u don't get a job months after ur NYSC. Please don't do anything funny. U may not understand that but av it in mind too that u may not get a job as fast as P .
That's my own advice for u

You can always have something to do if you just learn how to promote peoples products. Their are a lot of companies looking for people to promote them and they are willing to pay you handsomely if you assist them. I could be able to help you with what i do. Just send me an email:firstname.lastname@example.org

Thanks friends. I don't lack business Ideas.
It is just that I desire to work in a progressive organization to enable me gain the skills, experience and money that I need to pursue my goals.
I went to a reputable university and graduated with good grade.
I'm serving now and I need advice on how to get good jobs. I believe a lot of nairalanders have passed through this and would like to share their experience. As they say 'experience is not just passing through a situation but what you did with the situation.
Thanks once again.

I am a Youth Corper and would be passing out in October. I however started applying seriously for jobs since around march. I attended 2 job tests which I failed and the 3rd one I wrote, I passed... I was invited for the final interview last week and was then asked to meet the H/R manager to discuss my pay.
I feel as a corper, one should not see the service year as just one to catch fun. One should think ahead about life after passing out parade.
Best of luck bro!

You suppose to have started hunting for employment opportunities immediately after graduation.
However, you still got some skill u learnt in ur uni, why not put it into reality. Perhaps, you got talent in a niche, why not sell ur services to the people that need it?
Remember to ring ur old friends, who knows; they can help...
Note that all these is mere talks if u don't seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness...

@ Op you need to support your pedigree with professional exams. Degree certificates alone won't get you that desired job as intended. Degree without practical skills is useless. Practical skills are measured via professional exams. Get professional certifications in your line of studies and you would be fine. It worked for me. I lost a job opportunity with MTN as a result of lack of certification in the required exam. Now, with certifications in Cisco CCNA, ComPTIA A+ & Network+, CISP, WNAP and Oracle I never regret my certifications.

Brother, getting job in Nigeria is a combination of luck and God's Grace period! When i graduated from the University, i erroneously thought that good grade can get you a job, but surprisingly i was wrong after all. Those people in my class then that were regarded as "never do well" were the ones that got the lucrative jobs after NYSC. Just pray for God's favor and plenty of luck as they are the most important things to fetching you a job not grades. Goodluck

God bless you @OP and the first person to comment really hit the head of the nail, above all one has to be prayer and very close to God.

@OP, wot worked for Mr A, may not work for Mr B. Jez put ur trust in woteva U worship, nd u'll b fine. Albeit, you have to be good, nd u also need some spicing luck. If you are good, you need just a little push(someone who can refer you to the employer)

Ur point 2 is very correct, the God factor.
Well i would correct the 3 month proir application. Rather start applying 6 months b4 d end of nysc... ideally u might fail d first or second test...also recruitment into any "good" coy in Ng will ideally span 6 months.
Also if u haven't mastered apt test...pls do, forget that u were a genius in ui, unilag, cu, abu, lasu, uniport, oau, etc its a different ball game when d sample space is much larger.

I'll advice u to think towards being ur own boss,cos th truth z that there are thousands of people like u that would be passing out so th chances of getting a job without knowing somebody in higher places is limited.
So wht I'm I saying?;think towards starting sumthang of ur own. Wish u luck man

Honestly, Graduates must change their orientation towards the labour market. Why can't u expend ur energy on creating jobs rather than seeking for non-existing job? Who told you u can't employ graduates?
|Re: What Must I Do To Get A Job Immediately After Service. by bakynes(m): 2:50pm On Jul 09, 2013|
Job in Nigeria is like a miracle,you hardly hear someone say they got a job but all in all, God is the Ultimate factor in getting a job in Nigeria.Even 40k job to take dey manage I no see. Frustration is there already I pray it doesn't get to depression,am simply tired.Hard work doesn't pay in the Nigerian Society anymore.

Don't wait till you finish NYSC before you start applying. Start applying during NYSC.
Read widely on test taking and interview skills, practice test question, equip yourself duirng the service year.
