Marketing is the easiest job to get.
Many Graduates hate marketing jobs but unfortunately more companies are drifting towards paying commissions rather than fixed salary.
In essence, if you hate marketing then be prepared to be jobless for a long time except you are fortunate to get a job you can lose tomorrow.

Pelmet:I have graduated in a lot of trades.I have done cctv installations,laptop repairs,gsm repairs trainings 6 to 8 years ago.Up till now,i don't have capital and good location to setup my own business.The cctv thing is worst.My boss will use his personal money to buy the cctv cameras, dvr and other equipment that is required to carryout installation works for banks and hotels.Before he will be paid will take like 2 to 3 months.He will even be begging to be paid sef.It is not easy bro.

I studied English and Literary Studies. Thanks for the advice
|Re: Life Of An Unemployed Naija Girl by jholam(f): 11:31am On Aug 01, 2016|
This is exactly what people do not understand. I have actually moved about. I didnt just sit down at home. I even applied for teaching jobs but to no avail.
I also have ideas of businesses i want to start but getting capital is the problem. People can give advice when they are not in ones' shoes.

MoyoGENERAL:Yea this is through... There are a lot of things to do... I think we should leave the advent of tropical white jobs to begin creating employment ... The thought of going back to parents house is very wrong, hence we should seek way to be resourceful.

Gabbyraze:spot on, I've was at home for 8 months, I know how I felt doing nothing, just got a low pay job. I know the respect I get from neighbors and friends now. I go out in the morning and come in late in the evening. No more "Guy u still dey sit down for house"

I don't remember talking or suggesting anything to you,please don't be offended....Only those afraid to succeed as an entrepreneur give excuses like you did...Keep waiting,the experience will come visit you sooner than later

What are you saying ? so you are telling me u don't need anything to start a business ?
Do u know how hard it is for some people to raise even 10k ?
Do u know the psychological trauma some jobless graduates are facing ?
Starting a business requires a lot "that is wat am saying
You need to Try ,Try Try and keeping Trying
Patient and persistence
So u just don't tell someone to start a business like u say "Go and brush your teeth"
If u had said "Go look for a job(no matter how small the pay is) , Try save up a little ,read entrepreneurial books ,talk to experienced entrepreneurs and start a business (no matter the size).
You uld have made a whole lot of sense to me
"curse me as much as u like "
Am sure no jobless graduate is just sitting at home waiting for experience or a job to pay them a visit ..
please don't quote me again ...cos u don vex me

N/B: To anyone who pm'd me, I'm sorry but pm is defunct.
its touching to read about the rough patches Nigerian graduates go through after nysc.
I remember we had to go through a series of tests and interviews trying to secure mtn call center job.
salary?... silly #60k($200).
Thank God for America.

Being unemployed after your nysc is really a choice... your choices during nysc determines your placements after nysc... I am still planning on how i can do a complete writeup on my nysc experience.. That is one of my most memorable experiences.... Please, don't look at situations as problems alone, try and look at the hidden opportunities in those situations

If you live in Lagos. I could offer you a leveraging Business.... That's what I do to feed my family. And my wife doesn't work. I stopped selling recharge Card by the roadside about 4 years ago. Left it to start this leveraging business. I make at least 215k a month... I have people who earn higher. My e-mail .. email@example.com

Pelmet:The thing is everyone want to start big!
With a small capital you can start something in your little way and stay from being idle!
|Re: Life Of An Unemployed Naija Girl by babawere(m): 2:29pm On Aug 01, 2016|
Seriously I feel the pain of the Op, I am also in her shoes hoping and praying for God's one time job opportunity. I accept d blame for my own predicament, as I never for once planned life after NYSC while serving-a mistake I still curse daily. On the other hand I am a graduate of sociology, and I wouldn't mind any job right now, no matter how little the pay is, starting somewhere is d secret key I lacked but now my eyes dun clear based on most people's comments. Any P.A, Voluntary work, A writer or Admin work ll b welcome from anybody who can be of help. But I believe, no matter how hard Nigeria may seem, d top ll never elude me. God bless our hustle.

Great! Aside this any professional certification? Would it be possible you post a link to your CV here? Who knows .....it might just get hitched. This might be of help though https://www.nairaland.com/3262292/fg-extends-online-job-application
|Re: Life Of An Unemployed Naija Girl by joanana(f): 4:14pm On Aug 01, 2016|
OP I know exactly how you feel , i was in your shoes few years ago. if you know what is good for you. start with any job for now.
my first job didn't pay much but I learnt a lot from it ( on the job training) I trained myself . With the experience from my first job i got my second job , same thing i did with the first, upgrade your cv with professional qualifications or go for your masters. i did and with that i got my present job.
Don't sit at home and wait for it to come to you before you are ready... Be prepared!!!
I didn't do it alone oooo Oluwa was also involved!!!
|Re: Life Of An Unemployed Naija Girl by Kennycyphers(m): 4:16pm On Aug 01, 2016|
Its quite easy for us to judge.. we re certainly not in her shoes.!! But being unemployed today is not the end of the world. Even though FG doesn't provide you with the enabling environment. Just keep trying, don't give up. Believe me,. You will make it. It only takes time.
|Re: Life Of An Unemployed Naija Girl by Nobody: 4:36pm On Aug 01, 2016|
Lol...you don't get it. do you? Okay lemme rephrase, "people are looking for small capital to make money from their skills".
A sewing trainee needs just one machine
A bead making trainee needs just a few equipment
Electronic repairs etc
Some are lucky to have parents that can make it work, others are on their own, clueless with no one to help. So when a person complains, cut them some slack.

slumcat:oh, cool, so wat made it illegal
|Re: Life Of An Unemployed Naija Girl by turhibdwhale(m): 5:36pm On Aug 01, 2016|
The way this life is going only God can help us all, after so many struggles in school, we still have to face 10times of it in the real world. What's the essence of knowledge when you don't get a chance to apply it. Some people engage in vocational training and in 5 years they're doing great,compare to someone who spent 4-6 years in school and you're back to square one. May God help US. Don't know what's waiting for me out there after school.
