5 Ways Students Can Gain Work Experience Before Graduation - Dailystudentinfo by generalbush(m): 1:29pm On Nov 13, 2017
Never make the mistake of thinking of work experience after graduation; I will show you how you can gain work experience before graduation.



The fear of every employer concerning fresh graduates is the assumption that they can’t hit the ground running. This makes it difficult for young graduates to secure mouth watering jobs without a connection.

As a student in the university, it is up to you to avoid these pitfalls and do the right thing. Just in case you have forgotten, there are no jobs in Nigeria for graduates without connections. So if you are having the impression of graduating and securing quality jobs in oil firms and so on, think again!

Below are the ways students can gain work experience before graduation

Learn a skill relating to any Job sector

By now it should be clear that the Nigerian job market doesn’t discriminate in terms of course of study. I have seen Engineers working in banks; I have also seen Economics students working in a software development firm.

What you are studying at school shouldn’t be the basis of the skill you may wish to acquire. Personally, I always suggest ICT skills because it is one of the fastest growing sectors in the country.

If an English student acquires Software Development skills, the chances of getting a job than a Computer science student without this skill are higher.

Having a skill means work experience to the average Nigeria employer – just in case you have no idea. So this is one of the perfect ways students can gain work experience before they even graduate.

Carry out Projects relating to the skill learnt

Work experience is simply putting what you know into practice. When it is time to create a CV, and you have lots of successfully executed projects to your name, then it becomes easier.

Work Experience:

- I successfully maintained the network server of ABC Company and recorded above 80% uptime during work periods.

- I networked the WAN connection of Xyz CBT centre and had a smooth operation during the CBT exams.

This is how a standard CV of a fresh graduate from school should look like. Nobody will hire you for having a First Class. They will only hire you for bringing something to the table to move the company forward.

Write Certifications in your chosen Skill Sector

It isn’t too early to become certified. It gives you the advantage over those who will graduate with just their B.Scs.

“Do you know that CISCO Company gives special support to firms who hire certified CISCO graduates?”

If you assume that to gain work experience before graduation is early, then you are in for a long thing. Certifications are expensive; but if you have the money, write them.

Getting a job in Nigeria is already a difficult task on its own. The only trick is for students to gain work experience before graduation, so they can be well positioned over those who have nothing.

If you would love to know the skill that suits you better, please ask me using the comment section and I will reply you ASAP.

Unfortunately your write up tilts to students in computer science and other IT-related courses.

How about students of less fortunate courses like Linguistics, Philosophy and History?

When I was young, I decided to take medical exams, at the entrance exams we were told to rearrange P N E I S to form a very important organ in the human body that is mostly useful when erect.
Those like James who answered S P I N E are doctors today, the rest of us are in unilorin

I think this is a good way to acquire work experience after graduation.. At least, it gives you an edge over others who didn't. However, that doesn't mean you're made for life. You're still running round a circle that doesn't end, the rat race. While at that job, get a side huztle.. Later on, make investments that creates multiple streams of income. It will come a time when you'll dump that shittt job and stay at home while your assets keeps breeding forth money. The fear of getting up everyday pushed me to this path and I'm not regretting.. Being your own boss rocks. Although during the infant establishment, it can be hell.. But as you progress, it keeps getting easier.. It will get to a stage where you won't have to work anymore and yet, the inflow of money won't be disrupted. Entrepreneurship is bae...

They can intern/volunteer with script writers as researchers, movie producers as translators, TV and radio stations, marketing and advertising agencies, publishers, politicians etc.
Endless options if they set their mind to it.
