On the contrary, the pay isn't bad at all.

DSSC will graduate you a full lieutenant with a pay around and above 150K. Its also for professional courses and is very competitive.

SSC will graduate you with 2nd lieutenant(rank before lieutenant) and pay around 130K. Its for any degree and less competitive as available slots are more than those for DSSC.

Yes, there is risk of being posted to conflict areas. Every job has risks.

True, military jobs should not desired because of lack of a job. Usually these ones are the ones who end up spoiling the respective forces.

The standard of discipline keeps falling because most successfull candidates knew one general or senator etc. and not because its their first love.

Finally, if you don't know any highly placed person, pray to "your God". Trust me, some still make it without knowing anyone.

Things aren't always perfectly done with the Army, just wait a few days and you should get d pin in a major branch; you might start with a branch near army headquarters.

Eboski: the site still not opening,what's the problem?
The site is possibly still being updated so chill, or try it at early hours.
Your connection may also be responsible, possibly too slow.


neyosea25: I saw geology there can someone with applied geophysics apply since they are related?
Yes, apply for both but your best chances are with SSC.


Note:
DSSC is 6 months training
SSC is 9 months training

Many people are complaining of the training, the proccess etc are tough but when you see the Millitary officers you respect them, you envy them !!! I wonder why people think that the things they always desire must come too easy.

Well i remember always that 'GOOD THINGS DON'T COME CHEAP' and GOLD would only be known after passing through fire. so better know how to see a future fruit even in the midst of the mir it must first fall.

If you want to apply, for any reason you may have, just apply. Make sure you achieve that goal, then it won't matter what you heard before.

They want to rip job seeker off again. they have a space for 200 people, yet they will sell the form for 50 million and pocket the money without coscience. even Nigeria as a Country under Jonathan is a hacker . why collect money when you are employing people to come and die?

I saw a job advert on nairaland three days ago by the time I open it and see people comment "this is a scam" and the Op didn't deny it (I mean he/she didn't say anything about it) this would be the third time. So how can someone know a true job advert on niaraland?

Again if someone want to apply online I mean sending CV to e-mail under subject & message is it necssary to put anything or just send the CV only?

me_for_you: The training is very rigorous. My cousin told me his experience of last year when he went. They start with medical where they drop a lot of people. Then endless timed running where a whole lot collapse and some die. After the whole thing, he made it to the board, but only 4 were taken from imo state. And he wasn't among. Because u have to be related to a General

Fadelex:
U'r wrong... dssc is for those that studied professional related courses e.g law, architecture, music, building, nursing, medicine and so on while ssc is 4 other non-professional courses.... Dssc will be trained for 6mnths and will be given lieutenant (2 star) while ssc will be trained for 9mnths and will be given 2nd lieutenant (1 star)...both will serve for 10yrs bt can be converted to regular combatants depending on vacancy available... Goodluck guys...remember its 15 per state...on my way to ecobank
