8 Things You Must Do Before Concluding Your NYSC Programme by viviangist: 9:34am On Feb 25, 2016
Job hunting could be an uphill task for most fresh graduates considering the fact that it is a game of the survival of the fittest.Below are a list of 8 things you must get done while serving your nation to be better positioned for the job hunt especially in the private sector.
1.DECIDE ON THE KIND OF JOB YOU WANT:
The first thing you must do is to take a decision on the kind of job you want.You can even stream line it down to the list of companies you would want to
work for, that way you know what you are preparing for and how to go about it. It amuses me
when job hunters come to my office and I ask them what kind of job do you want and they go like “oga, any job”. Any job is no job dude, take a decision today because it will determine a whole lot of things in your preparation.
2.RESEARCH: Carry out a research on the company(ies) you would like to work with. It baffles me how people submit their CVs to companies they know little or nothing about. A little research will do you some good. Get to know a
thing or two about their history,
the people, their organizational culture, their vision and their mission statement.
3.PROFESSIONAL CERTIFICATION: Acquire at least one professional certification. This is why you
should decide first on the choice of career/job you want as it will help you decide on which professional course to go for. Don’t be a party to the band wagon mentality that is prevalent
among corps members. Everybody is going for project management, therefore must you
too go for project management? Everybody in your lodge is enrolling for NIM, so you too must enroll for NIM. That is not true. Get to find out the professional certification that best suits
your dream job. All you may just need is a course on safety or data
base management. Trust me!
4.SKILL ACQUSITION: Please learn a new skill. Get your hands on something, so when they ask you,
what can you do? You can provide a definite answer, instead of just telling them what you studied. What you studied and what you can do are two distinct things altogether. This is very important especially for my friends with a background in
social sciences. A good skill
acquired could also be handy pending when the dream job comes. 5.CHANGE YOUR WARDROBE: Dude please dress like your dream job. Starting building a professional
wardrobe from that small alawee. It’s not the time to spend your money on another dirty jean, combat pants, or what have you. Get yourself a cutting edge professional suit (don’t bank on your convocation suit to do the job). It doesn’t cost much. For guys, invest on good ties,
cufflinks, shoe, shirts, and a good brief case or bag and stop carrying your cv in that big brown envelope, some directors can sight you from their office and tell the security or secretary “don’t let that guy in, he is looking for a job.
6.WORK ON YOUR WEB IMAGE: Image is everything.
Shun those clichés’ or fat lies on our CV, if I go through your Facebook timeline or twitter handle , I will tell the kind of person you are ( I just shared a little secret of what some employers now do, work on it and thank me later).
If your Facebook timeline and profile is not decent, work on it or get a new one before you start job hunting. Follow the company you would like to work for on twitter, like their page on Facebook. Build a professional online presence .Get a good e-mail ID (Do away with the
xyz4love@yahoo.com craze and the likes of it.). a good professional ID comprises of your
name and your surname
e.g. adewalejohnson@yahoo.com.
7.IMPROVE YOUR NETWORK: The job you are looking for dey some people hand, Hello! Start building
your contact list, invest in
strategic relationships while you are still serving.
Join associations, clubs, and forums. Ladies you can
join Women in Management and Business (WimBiz), the biggest association for women professionals in West Africa. You can enroll for their mentee program as a young female graduate. Trust me, you don’t need to know the caliber of women you meet in such an association. One good contact
is worth more than a hundred CV submitted at random. Build new, better, and strategic relationships.
8.GET A MENTOR: Identify someone who has distinguished him or herself in the career you desire to pursue. A good mentor can carry you along, just make sure the person is accessible. Don’t go telling me that Ngozi Okonjo Iweala is your mentor, when you two don’t communicate. She can
be your role model, but obviously
not your mentor. Identify someone that can create time for you and probably entrust you with responsibilities, even if you don’t get paid. I hope you find it useful

Nice one Vivian.

Nysc should actually be a year of planning, savings and personal organisation. Any plan one fails to make during NYSC will definitely affect the person.

HMMMM.... NOT EVERYBODY WILL BE FORTUNATE TO GET POSTED TO WHERE THEY WILL LEARN A REASONABLE SKILL. IS IT ME THAT GOT POSTED TO SOME VILLAGE IN KEBBI STATE THAT WILL LEARN A SKILL DURING SERVICE? EXCEPT OF COURSE IF I DECIDE TO LEARN HOW TO MAKE KULI-KULI....lol.
EVEN TO DO PROFESSIONAL EXAMS MEANS I WILL HAVE TO BE SHUTTLING 22HOURS NON STOP JOURNEY FROM KEBBI TO LAGOS EACH TIME I WANT TO WRITE AN EXAM.(THAT IS IF U GET TO SAVE ENOUGH FOR THE EXAMS SEF)
YET I WAS STILL ABLE TO GET SOMETHING KOOL DOING AFTER NYSC
BROS, ITS ALL GRACE OF GOD AND DOING NUMBER 1 AND 2 ABOVE THAT WORKS OUT THE MOST.
