Your success lies within you. I want to couch you and bring you out of your situation highest 3 months from now.

You need to write down a confession. Something you read aloud to yourself everyday. Being successful is not even a permanent state. Successful people still have hurdles. I still applied these principles severally in life to obtain positive results.

Reply me with a positive comment then i will give you my whatsapp number. You don't need to meet me.
Sir. good day, pls I would love to be in too. hope u don't mind?

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


Stop complaining too much. Things are not all yhat buoyant in the country. One year is long but people have spent longer. Just keep believing.

Do you know how many years I stayed @ home before I got a job?
Chairman go rest abeg, create a job if you can't find one. This is even the best time to think of what to do to put food on the table, now that you have a lot of time at your disposal.

U have an impressive CV, all you need is to start small and grow big. Do not neglect all these "small" companies.

There is something that job seekers do not understand.

So let me inform you a little of the couching i want to put you through. Life is always a struggle at every stage. So whenever you feel you have arrived, one may get overtaken. Why do politicians steal ? They are also in the struggle. They do not want to suffer.

If you hear the frustration of some employed people, you may not even pray to get employed on some jobs. People working in banks and some oil companies complain too of how routine and uninteresting their jobs are to them. Friends of mine.

in your case, the best way to attract positive things to yourself is by putting up a positive attitude, a positive confession, a positive answer to every question concerning your condition.

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.

2. Have idea on how to orperate and run a business centre
3. Ecltrical repairs
4. I am an orator
5. I also write
5. I also have experience on sport instructing

Some times depression dont cant even let you know your ability (ies) anymore

with all these ideas and your expertise, i would advise you to start a trade/workshop like generator repairer, computer repairer and phone repairers. you thank me later.

entrepreneurship is way out

what more can I say? All the sun in Abuja find shade on my head. sometimes I walk until I ask myself "o boy where you de go".
Worst of all I stay with my uncle and some protocols are observed. With my 2.1 Accounting degree, I regret spending all those days in school thinking future is bright. I don pray and fast it seems God is silent but Man has to hold on to something greater which is God.
All the same, future is brighter, I am considering quitting Job hunting very soon and starting business of any small capital.
My bother, no worry. Things will get better; suicide is not my option because if I do that plenty people for my house go join. So I believe God is set to do something miraculous not just soon but very soon. Delay is not denial................
It is well.

@OP.
You study computer science and you are looking for a job when you suppose to be creating job for others, every IT professional is automatically employed by default base on skill.

Most problem with you guys is attaching much value on your class of degree or çertificates insted of skill.

Being an IT personel should be an advantage for you than any other graduate out there because jobs looks for you, you dont look for jobs except you dont know what your doing.

Let me give you example.

I studied the same course with you but after my uni I didn't bother typing CVS or submitting application to any company, instead I went to design complimentary card using my house as an office address with my name as company name.

All I did is going to cafe. Business centres, small firms, and micro finance banks dropping my complementary card with an introductory letters to them on the services I am into.


While I was watiing to get calls. I enroll into some network certification programs utilizing my time to upgrade myself, with time I started getting call from cafe owners to come and do maintenance for them.


From cafe I started geting calls from small business owners and micro finance banks...not just the ones I dropped my complementary card with but also with referral contacts.


At a point some of this small companies started asking me to work for them on permanent basis, then they knew my value and know how much i will be demanding for a pay.


At a point i accepted to work with one company that is a contractor to an oil firms...

Guess what through them i joined multinational companies from one company to the other, i dont submit CV, no interview, no application and so on.

My last company was shell which I recently resigned on my own because I think is time to grow my own companies which I registerd years back.

People was like guy you get mind oooo resigning from shell....but is a decision I have to make to pursue my own dream.

No I run my own ICT firms doing contracts with Telecom companies and some Multinational...including the Shell.

I now makes my monthly salary in less than one week.
So my brother stop waiting for company job you have the skill already, those boys in computer village most of them don't even know how school looks like but believe me they are far better than most Computer Engineering graduates.

I now employs workers no the other way round.

So use your skill and dump the so called Degree.

Thanks.

Go to Australia, and you will know a day job wages will feed you for a whole week. Fûck this country, nobody is talking about getting top jobs, but how will tell a graduate to apply for a gateman job, is that your own meaning of starting small? Nigeria is fûcked and we able youths keep looking.

What have you achieved from your outburst? Nigerians are not realist that's why the country is backward. I will not lower myself to your level. it is okay to go Abroad and do demeaning jobs but not in your own country in order to survive.
When Nigerians go abroad to do demeaning jobs, is because what they earn is better than what people doing white collar jobs earn because of the exchange rate. In Ogunpa and some Lagos markets you think those Northerners that came from Niger also carry loads in their country too? No, because when they earn our Nigeria and go back home, they become kings.

So you can't tell a graduate in Nigeria to do a demeaning job, the other guy is right, since you think its befitting, tell your family members about it.

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

The economy is not so favourable to many people now especially the unemployed youths... My advice to you is to go for small or medium scale firms whose start-up pay ranges between 20k - 50k or there about.. don't think it's too small to start with, you don't know the opportunities that will be available for you when you take up any of those.. Half we all know is still better than nothing..
Sorry for the state of things now bro, Gold help us all

When Nigerians go abroad to do demeaning jobs, is because what they earn is better than what people doing white collar jobs earn because of the exchange rate. In Ogunpa and some Lagos markets you think those Northerners that came from Niger also carry loads in their country too? No, because when they earn our Nigeria and go back home, they become kings.

So you can't tell a graduate in Nigeria to do a demeaning job, the other guy is right, since you think its befitting, tell your family members about it.


The truth is a very bitter pill to swallow especially for Nigerians. A country of certificate collectors and then they bring a European Technician who hasn't smelled the walls of a university to come and head big engineering firms in their country. Pride goes before a fall.

Say No to Pity Party....
I finished from medical school 2011, my internship 2013, served 2014-july 2015. Saw the state of unemployment in the country and since I ve got no funds for private practise, I moved into Charcoal business. I didn't start out Big, am not yet big, I started making 10,20,50k from acting as a middle Man,
Right now am so close to my own international contract.

I am Igbo, I don't speak Hausa nor Yoruba, but I am living in one of the villages in kwara State.

Bro you have more advantage..... Please PM some can talk. Maybe after your coaching experience with one of us here as promised you.


Just know that Pity party won't help you.... Nobody owes you anything in life after basic education.


Well done keep it up. To a lot of Nigerian Graduates this is demeaning to them. Goodluck with your hustles.
