We’ve listed a few of them. Dig in, and see which skills you should begin to work on, in order to get hired faster:



1. Graphic Designing

The demand for this skill has opened a new business opportunity for Nigerians, as you’ll find a number of skilled people opening Instagram accounts that provides graphics design services.



2. Content Marketing

Content marketing is a strategic marketing approach focused on creating and distributing valuable, relevant, and consistent content to attract and retain a clearly-defined audience — and, ultimately, to drive profitable customer action. This goes beyond just creating content, and includes the ability to be able to distribute content to meet target audience while driving action. Many content writers are ensuring they carry this skill along with their writing skills in order to remain relevant, as brands are after getting words out there about their products/services and reaching their target market.



3. Brand Management

Companies are now big on bringing a brand manager on board, to help put forth theirs brands in positive light. Effective brand management enables the price of products to go up and builds loyal customers through positive brand associations and images or a strong awareness of the brand. The brand manager’s major role is developing a good relationship with the target market.



4. Website/App Development

The need to be relevant in our tech-driven world is the reason why brands are investing so much in brand websites and mobile application development. Website and mobile application developers have high demand, as even in cases when organisations already have mobile apps and websites already, they are constantly improving and updating the features and outlook.



5. Social Media Marketing

As part of their marketing efforts and as a result of the growth of digital media in Nigeria, companies are now doing a lot on social media to reach their target audience. Social media marketing refers to the process of gaining traffic or attention through social media sites. The role of a social media manager is therefore now in hot demand and anyone with these skills can decide to go freelance, offering this service to various brands.



6. Accounting

Accounting has been always been an in-demand field for the years. From MSMEs to large corporations, there’s always the need for an accountant to monitor figures, manage income inflow and outflow, as well as financial statements. Accounting graduates are not resting their oars due to this hot demand, as the competition still remains tough. So, they go a step further with certifications such as ICAN and ACCA.



7. SEO

The importance of Search Engine Optimization for every company with a website cannot be overemphasised. No wonder companies are putting in resources into it. A large percentage of the population use the internet. This then means any organisation that needs to succeed not only has to be online, but also make efforts to found online.

many skills re employable even sales girl and factory workers are on high demand. The questions to ask Is

how secure are this employment ( u can get fired anytime )

Are there any retirement benefits
