Try and visit, some people whom u know are welcoming.

People that can receive U whole-heartedly without blemish.

Also consider Marriage especially with someone in whom u can find happiness.
Marriage is also a form of employment. [/quote)the last paragraph got me.

So after graduating from the university about a year ago i have'nt got a job. I know most of you will say (just one year and you are complaining.) Well it does'nt matter.

All that matters is that one is without a job and it is extremely annoying and life is boring.
You see adverts everywhere of job openings and you wonder if there are just for show or if people are really getting these jobs.
Once or twice you see a testimony on nairaland that someone just got a job and you begin to pray for your own.
You wait and wait for a miracle because now your degree does not matter again. If you don't have somebody somewhere, 'na only miracle you go hope on.

After going through school, burning mid night candles, going for lectures, doing stupid assignments that lecturers never read and struggling to see that your name is on flimsy attendance cheat for ten marks, what do you get?
Answer - A long stay in your fathers house, waiting for when somebody will visit and dash you money. Because your parents do not have your time again.
Most times, you might even here comments like" abeg do go marry" or better still "you no get boyfriend?".
Sometimes you begin to wonder what went wrong but in the end, what can one do but hope for a miracle.

Life is hard o. Especially if you are unemployed and a girl in naija.

Most of the unemployed people commenting here are looking for start up capital.

You all go to church or religious centers I presume, have you offered coaching sessions for either nursery or primary or Jamb students in your religious centers?
Have you offered to clean anyone's house twice a month or a week?
Have you gone to banks or offices to offer to bring food or fruits for sale to them?
Have you tried meeting working women and offering to help them buy foodstuffs in exchange for a fee?
What of washing cars in an estate.
And a job as a driver?
Or teaching piano, guitar or musical instrument to kids. Your potential clients can be from your place of worship.
Not every start up business requires much capital, just the willingness to venture into it.

The first step to unemployment is thinking outside the box and getting off your high horse.it doesn't mean you'll remain in that position for long. But how do you expect to grow if you don't make a move?

I go wit u my broda. Its just dat som of us hr hate d bitter truth of coming down from our high expectations nd taking it up from somwhr.
I like being blunt espcially wn it coms to being productive in life... "U dont have any excuse for being a failure, Dr. Myls Munroe"

And i am proudly practicing my blive in entreprenuership which is rly paying off and growing to greatnes.

A recent rsearch shows dat an employment vacancy in naija is equal to 200-300 aplication. and 10 is equal to 1000-3000!

Getting an employmnt is vry good, but pls dont sit die all ur life in d waiting list or "we will get bck to u hope"
"Evry man has a drop of greatnes in him" Look inward nd unravle dat deposit of greatnes in u nd make d way for it to grow nd bcom great.

Bottom line is learn a skill... If a job requiring a graduate comes along, good! If not, ur skills will keep u going.


From the ops comments also. It's obvious she just went to school for going sake. She didnt really learn much other than getting a paper.

You really do not want to know what unemployed young men go through daily. Believe me, you don't want to. Family pressure, peer pressure, fiancee/girlfriend pressure, self-imposed pressure and many more....I no fit count.

It is frustrating, bro. I'd barely stayed a month at home last year after service and my life seemed upside down. I almost think myself to depression. Mom would come to room time to time to check if I was thinking again. I applied for over 300 jobs in one month but to know avail. I gave up. I left Kwara for Lagos for an underpaid job in a hotel on VI, Lagos. I couldn't stay a month there. Thank God for ISON BPO, I started working as CCR same last year, though underemployed, the struggle continues.

Thank you so much Mr. Kellybently for educating the (hopeless and confused) masses with your pictorial lessons. The only problem is that so many of them will still not understand the message as they are hell bent on getting a job with their certificate.

There are so many people like the OP out there. So many of them are still in the tertiary institution. The will never learn the importance of having at least one marketable skill that can help you earn a living.

The other day, I was discussing with one undergrad and I was telling her about the importance of learning/having a skill or two instead of depending on getting the non-existent jobs and she was like: ABEG LEAVE ME ALONE, WHEN I GET TO THAT BRIDGE I'LL CROSS IT.

No need wasting my energy on her anymore. She, and so many people like her will eventually learn. Unfortunately, just like the OP, they will also learn that SCHOOL is absolutely bunkum because it is not teaching the people what they really need to earn a living and survive!!!

So my dear OP, I don't pity you at all. And I have no words of encouragement for you.

But...

All I can tell you is that it's never too late (for you) to start.

What can you do? What do you know? Can you start a blog about what you know? Can you use the computer very well? See, lots of opportunities abound on the internet.

You don't need to continue waiting until you get a job. Learn to do something for yourself rather than being dependent or docile because that's exactly what waiting to get a job really is!!!

Research Fiverr and see how you can get started. There's even a thread on that here on nairaland by a lady like you:

https://www.nairaland.com/2390751/how-make-up-500k-every#34927043

If you decide to go by the investment way which is actually one of the best ways of earning as exemplified by that kellybently picture message, then you can send me a PM.

And... I might help you... if I like you. tongue

You know what I detest about a lot of Nigerians? Many of you are just too judgemental. Many of you lack compassion and empathy. It must be the hostile Nigerian environment. First of all, is the OP going to attend skill acquisition for free? Does it not cost money to learn 'hand work'? Even the girl that you know makes chin-chin and supplies to primary and secondary schools, she must have had someone that spoke to the headmistress/headmaster and/or principal on her behalf to allow her supply chin-chin to the students and staff. Why do you talk as if you don't know how things work in Nigeria? Okay, even if the OP wants to start selling meat pie, chin-chin and the likes, it takes money to learn to how to make these things. Are you going to sponsor her?

When it comes to teaching, did the OP tell you she found a teaching job and refused it? Even teaching jobs are becoming hard to find. Many of you are talking about starting a business. Do they teach entrepreneurial skills in Nigerian secondary schools and universities? Do you know how quickly a business will fail if the business owner has no idea what he or she is doing? Do you think everyone is passionate about running their own business?

Funnily enough, the children of Nigeria's ruling elite (politicians) are landing white collar jobs in CBN and customs and IRS while children of the poor and middle class are told after years of studying their eyes out to go and farm so that females will be raped on their farms by marauding Fulani herdsmen. After years of studying, you are telling people to go farm like you are going to provide the plot of land used for farming.

Nigeria's business environment is not even favorable. Ask foreign investors, many who are leaving Nigeria for other countries. A country like Nigeria that cannot even provide stable electricity, small business loans with low interest rates and a conducive environment for businesses to thrive. Abeg!

Atleast after paying rent, tax, that I can be able to save, all I kept getting were look for something.something is nothing. It's easier said than done, some even suggested I go and learn hair making and open a Salon, as if women are only good with tailoring and hair making, instead of suggesting a business for me
no matter the business people will tell you, I bet you , you won't apply. If you are still in need of business, you can go into food business like breakfast meals or dinner meals. You can buy phones (unique) used phones and re-sell (post it on classifieds). Your 200k investment is a street kind of investment so u must be ready to be on the street.
