A Cry For Help.. Voice Of An Unemployed Youth by enshi(m): 7:30pm On Apr 01, 2017
After making a distinction in national diploma computer engineering from a federal polytechnic the future looked as bright as laser Light..
With much enthusiasm and believe i proceeded to apply for direct entry into one of the Universities of science and technology to also pursue a degree in engineering..
As a result of the delay in the University admission process that year i couldnt wait till i was enlisted for the degree program so i applied to further with my higher national diploma in my former school. The Hnd admission came without delay and luckyly for me the admission with the University also came along and believe me i took both as a challenge and went through them successfuly..

Due to the gap between the two admissions i was able to run them concurrently. At This point no youth in nigeria could be assured of a brighter future than i was..

Again i made a distinction in higher national diploma and a second class upper in my B. Eng... All in computer engineering.

Mobilization for NYSC came through first at the polytechnic so i served with my hnd and with a distinction i was posted to a federal university... What other assurance do i need for a brighter future ahead...

DAYS OF AGONY

with a month to the end of my service year i already had my CV, cover letter and i was prepared to go out and showcase my abilities.
April 14th 2016 i was so happy to drop the khaki and the jungle boot and with a happy heart i headed home..

Firstly i started with the online applications and after some months i started submitting hard copies from company to company..

After six months my family started showing signs of being human after all and i tell you this is the quickest invitation To depression.. In two weeks from now, it would have been a year sadness, dashed hope and ofcourse loneliness.

To cut story short i am beginning to think that education, sound result, qualifications, and the promise of a better future via academics is just a mere mirage..

This days i find it difficult to let people know i am a graduate... They get to find out them selves later and the sorry face they put up is a killer to my self confidence

Borrowing airtime from mtn, cutting my hair twice a month, trekking has become the Best means of transportation, laughter has become ostentatious, the worst is i no longer attend church services cos my regular appearance in same clothes is making Me an officer...

I need help but hey suicide has never been an option and would never be... I know it wont be like this forever but who knows where the help can come from.... I speak english Yoruba and igbo fleuntly... And i dont mind relocation as i am available for Immediate consideration

Thank you for sharing. You're a brave soul.

Brother, the only people without trials/problems are those in the cemetery.

How can you expect someone to look up to you when you look down on yourself?

Please cheer up and see this as an opportunity to learn a few more things about life.

There are a lot of successful people today who will gladly share their experience on how they trekked half of Lagos at one early stage of their lives. So please don't look down on yourself.

What problem can you solve for someone that will make him gladly hand over cash?

That's a question you need to answer today

Hello @enshi, really sorry about your situation. Am also glad you have clearly made up your mind to reject suicide -step in a right direction.

Permit me to ask you. Do you have a skill/skills? Try to mention the skill level on a scale of 1 - 10(10 being expert level). Please drop them here.

If you don't have skills but have passion for a skill/skills, also drop them here.

Don't loose hope.

With my B. Eng Degree in computer engineering and an outstanding distinction in higher national diploma (HND) also in computer engineering, Working as an IT executive, customer representative personnel, and a general executive assistant would be like doing what i know how to do Best.
Computer engineering, internet protocoling, troubleshooting, networking, interfacing between client(s) and company via any information communication technology platform (customer care / representative) and many other ICT operations are always Hobbies to me as i am also good with figures.
As a graduate of both a federal polytechnic and a state University, having distinction in both my OND and HND respectively (all on same course), I am bold to let you know that i am well equiped with knowlege either on operations, repairs, trouble shooting of electro-mechsnical devices.
Am also a passionate learner who pays close attention to the most minute of information, have flair for problem analysis, making objective decisions and with a great influencing personality which was gotten from my being a one time welfare director to the students' union government.

Stop looking for a job.

You sound quite knowledgeable so why not start off something from home?

Making money is all about solving a problem.

You can apply your knowledge in computing and mechanics across various fields - farming, blogging, repairs, education etc.


Send me your cv via mail - farmingenquiries (at) gmail.com if you prefer having a 'job'.

sad Mr Enshi! it is well, i have been there and I'm still in it. this April should be exactly one year after I finished my service and I'm still struggling but very hopeful. i highly believe in the few weeks coming My situation will change for good since I decide to take a bold and drastic measures. here's a tip:
Get the address to a Top Government official in your vicinity, check around you, you will definitely see One. except if you're in a very remote village which I doubt. see Gather yourself go meet him OR Her, what you really need at this point is a strong determination and confident (joblessness can make you do the unthinkable aswear!) the gateman won't dare to stop you, he will thought you have a very important meeting with oga or Madam. My brother if na to cry self abeg cry cheesy if the tears no gree come out, please force crocodile tears. Note this should be done when explaining your ordeal to the Government person, I can't guarantee you it works 100% but take it from me, I have done it and it yield positive outcomes, I have since established a contact with this Government guy and constantly receives update as any moment my situation gonna change for better hopefully.
Wish you the best.
