Good day hustlers. It is true that a friend who advices about the relevance of time is really a true friend. Please forget about this country and think outside the box. This Nigeria is nothing without its people, the people are greater and what makes up the country. If you are not recognized by her I believe you have the right to run solo hustle. One day, the same Nigeria will crave to recognize you after your personal success. I have stopped living in dreams about Nigeria taking me there and am proud my effort has given me what no Nigerian can offer. I pray for you all and we will succeed.

I agree to this


If after 30 you are still not experienced in any job field,
It will take special Grace of God to be employed again .

Jobs in Nigeria are for the connected and for the long-legged people not necessarily those under 30.

I think having a personal business or traveling abroad is the best idea for those above 30. Most vacancies in here now states Below 25 years old and with 3 years working experience.


This country just dey weak person every day

Jobs in Nigeria are for the connected and for the long-legged people not necessarily those under 30.

His point is, if you are 30 you should stop hustling for jobs and put your efforts into personal business ventures. This is without prejudice to connection. Leave the job race for fresh graduates in the usually requested age group which most times we read in job adverts as 24 years max and in few occasions 26 years old max.

It is actualy a wise thing if a young person can establish some venture on his/her own and grow it. A lot of people claim that their job hunting is to get salary and start up capital for business. A lot of them are however caught up in the rat race and get hooked to the 30 days make one income syndrome. They are scared, too tired, or too unmotivated to leave and start up the business they had in mind. The challenges of Nigeria also discourage a lot of people, especially when they see other start ups fail.

Run your own mile, achieve greatness. If we keep relying ONLY on the Government and it's creation of a conducive environment for businesses and hence jobs, we will wait for a long time and waste our youth. I don't even think we should wait till 30. If you are 24 and you have an idea and the opportunity, start up something. Even if you are working try other income streams.

OP next time reason well before making unrealistic assertion. Job placement in Nigeria is on the basis of three major factors and they are : (1) Nepotism (2) Grace of GOD (3) Qualification/ Experience. Age factor stands no chance to qualify as a criterion for job placement in my beloved country-Nigeria.

Might be true, except for Doctors and other health professionals. Also most times, Government Agencies don't specify age.

Jobs in Nigeria are based on who you know not what your age is. My 36 years old friend with no job experience just recently got a job in a chinese company because of connections. Few people I know above 40 got government Jobs for the first time in their lives when this change government came in.
