Nobody Really Cares, So Hide That Certificate And Just Survive Anyhow by Nobody: 11:33pm On Jan 09
You graduated 15, 10, years ago and still no job yet. You talk to people around about it, to get help but you are mocked behind you and they talk about you and say all sorts of things.

You walk almost all the roads and streets in Lagos in search of job, still no job. Any company you go to, they tell u to apply online whenever they have vacancies.

You stay at home to search for jobs online and neighbours gossip you and say he stays at home doing nothing, instead of him to go out and hustle like his mates. They term you a lazy man.

You come on nairaland to talk about your joblessness and how you have suffered, and you see people advising and some even opting to help, but at the end, you discover it was all but a show. No one wants to help.....Nobody wants to help, even if they can. I even doubt if any man helps any man these days. Mostly they prefer to help women! I've had about 4 different Nairalanders that have opted to help, but they just stop replying when you send them the mail or CV they requested.

You lay on your bed every night, thinking, sometimes praying and crying.. ..soaking your pillows with tears, but it just seem like God is just far away.

The truth is.. ...nobody cares! Nobody gives a damn about you. If you like kill yourself inside your room......nobody cares! You don't have a job for 20 years, nobody cares! You discover that the more you tell people your problems the more they mock you and use you as a topic of discussion, and the more you get frustrated. Nobody helps anybody again in Nigeria.

This is to me and all those nairalanders like me, coming to seek for help......coming to seek for job.....Stop begging for job, stop hoping that someone will help you here. Drop that your certificate, in fact go and hide it(i just did that today) Go out there, carry concrete-in-pans on your head and climb a 3- storey building, wash toilets, carry loads for people, work as labourer on site, carry packages from container to store, carry cement, do all sorts of dirty jobs and make money.. ....no matter how small. At least you won't beg anyone, or hope on anyone.
Just do anything to survive, cos no one will help you except you.

Eiyah.. Really touched by your post. Reminds me of a blog post I just read HERE. I think everyone should also read it. Whatever Ideas you have in mind, you need to focus and start working it! Don't wait for anyone or any job, just get busy with something while looking out for opportunities and applying for jobs. You need to have something you can do very well that is your skill. It is here the money will roll in from. Most people only care about your existence when you're useful to them and you can't be useful when you're always dependent. There is always something you can do to survive on your own. Stop forming, bend down and do it, God will bless you from there.

None cares bro. They only care when you've made it.
But one of the greatest philosophy in life is "never quit"

You might just need one last stroke of the spade before you strike gold how would you know if you quit?

God cares bro even if no one does. I bet you your breath is a gift lots of MDs, CEOs and GMs will pay any sum to have.

Go to the Hospital and know how much it cost to be placed under artificial oxygen per day.

You have health and strength you have wealth.

I was laid off from my place of work and no one was ready to help out. I had to go into goat farming. Lot's of people laugh at it but I know how much I made over the festive period. As an electrical electronic engineer it is expedient to work in the oil and gas and bla bla..

Welcome to a new world. A world of survival of the smartest. A world where the rich preys on the poor.

Business is the key to a wealthy life. Mind you, you cannot be richer than your boss.

Well as for me, even if I get a nice job later on I ain't quitting business.

The Sad Truth. It is always advised to start something while you are still in school. Undergraduates should take note. Get a skill offline, work as an apprentice during the strike or breaks. Use Google. Answers will come! There are a lot of jobs on the internet (Not Fraud or Scam). Doors will open for you if you keep on!

I am a living testimony.

Call it pride or arrogance but one thing I can never do is coming to the public and ask complete strangers not even my close neighbors undecided for help of any kind. My parents have taught me this. People always look for what they will gain in return nothing goes for free anymore sad it is the kind of world we now live in.
Op, i can assure you that once you eventually overcome this struggle all alone and accomplished your dreams and become a relevant person with much importance, you will now see how everyone wants to associate with you and offer help and assistance even without asking. You begin wonder where are all these people when you are all alone with nobody giving a damn about your life
what will be yours will definitely be. No amount of highly connected individuals can stop or help with what God has destined for you, exercise patients and everything will be alright before you even know it.

I heard one guy wanted to kill himself because no job. Who cares. If hungry is catching you will you think of killing yourself unless goat or something to put in the stomach. There's no job in Nigeria because of much population and many available jobs can be done by a primary school graduate so companies are reducing their cost by training those set of people on job because it is the same training they will give to so called graduates who are not different from secondary schools graduates so why spend more?

The problem is the mindset, people believe too much in white collar job, desk job can't help solve unemployment problem of a country of over 180 million people.

The future of developing country like Nigeria lies in small and medium scale enterprise like artisan skills in construction, manufacturing, Ict, agriculture.

The earlier Nigerian graduate realislized that there is no easy way to millions the better

Bro, we live in a world full of injustice. Some people that even depended on me while we were in school no longer look my way since they are now rich. I've never been a bad person but situation is making me start thinking of living a rough life. I just pray i don't get to that point. I even made a thread here on nairaland to appeal to anyone who has a used laptop to give me to start an online job that someone introduced to me recently due to the way he saw me but no one cares.

I'm still convinced tho that great people abound even in this part of the world although they may be scarce

@op..This brought tears to my eyes.. I was very depressed when i finished serving and couldn't get a job. Now i have a job and a business which augments my income .You have said it all, i can't disagree with you. The well paying jobs are to be few to go round.Pls, instead of doing concrete work and all sorts. Sit down and think.. There are businesses you can start with 10k.You can make fruit salad, dress sharply and take to offices to sell.There is a U. I graduate that makes 1 100g noodles and 1 egg around my house for 200 naira.He told me he makes about 30k in profit monthly and he is learning how to install floor tiles too. Please don't despair, you only have to hustle smartly and leave the rest to God.In august 2015 i created a thread out of frustration of being without a job, many who asked me to call them or send pm did nothing.. So try to do your best,God dey.You would look back on these days and smile.
