When Is It Appropriate To Start Job Hunt As A Corp Member? by ansger: 9:39am On Feb 27, 2018
I still have some few months before POP and I'm thinking of submitting my C.V to companies, but I feel it's not yet time discerning to the fact that I don't have my NYSC discharge cert yet, which is an important Certificate for recruiting. I need your opinions please.

In my own opinion, I think its right from the first day you enter camp. Most companies in Nigeria takes months in their recruitment processes. Even though you're still serving and you get an interview invite, just attend it and if you impress them enough, you will be employed and you can relocated down also and turn your new workplace to your PPA...


I hope other serving corp members take this honest advice too..

When they start looking for a problem to solve in exchange for cash. Think like a solution provider and not a job seeker.

That should be the mid-service-year. Since recruitment processes take time.

I think it’s appropriate for you to start thinking of a good business idea, and start working towards starting a business of your own, start small and grow big with time..

The earlier the better
Except you're required to upload your nysc certificate or nysc number, you better apply to everywhere applicable if you don't want to spend months at home

Hello,3 months before your passing out parade is the best time to start sending out your CV to your preferred companies. However,even before you start your youth service,you should build your capacity in your field/area of interest by undergoing different professional trainings while acquiring unique skills in your field.

Things You Can Do During NYSC


Join the OBS

The Orientation Broadcasting Service (OBS) is a great way to serve while in the camp. A very important unit of the camp, it will offer you opportunities to not only develop your editorial and media skills, you will get to know the key officers in the camp. It also gives you a measure of authority and allows you to get an exemption from some of the camp activities which you may be averse to.

Run a small business

You can actually make money while at the orientation camp. You can offer services such as hair dressing or laundry to others in the camp who need them for a fee or you can rent a stall at the Mami market and sell food items which most corpers need from day to day. It is a great way to hone your business skills before you are launched into the labour market.

Do an online course

The orientation period does not have to be all activities and socializing, you can further develop yourself on the side by registering and going through a short online course during your stay. The good thing about online learning is that it is flexible so you can actually plan it around the time that you will be leaving the camp.



Socialize and actually meet new peop[/b]le

The NYSC scheme was originally established to encourage oneness among citizens in the country and promote national unity. By sending these individuals to other states, the expectation is that they mix with people of other tribes, social and family backgrounds and learn the culture of the indigenes in the place they are posted. Rather than sticking to yourself all through the orientation process, use your spare time to actually fraternize and get to know the people in your platoon and camp as a whole. You would be surprised how many new things you will learn about Nigeria and what connections you may make for the future.
[b]
Start applying for jobs

The orientation period is not too early a time to start sending out your CVs to potential employers. The NYSC orientation can actually serve as an avenue for corpers to share job information and career resources, so take advantage of that and start early.

I will always advise you guys to start your online business while serving. I'm talking from experience

There are so many ways to make money online like blogging, writing, data entry, logo designing, web designing, virtual assistance, digital marketing etc.

If you are serving in a village in Taraba, it will take you not less than one day to travel down to the south. Mind you travelling is not permitted, if you are caught, automatic extension of service. Also travelling cost.
It won't be easy for persons like me.
