We all know life after the one year mandatory Nysc is no joke for graduates. Some are privileged to have job immediately after service which has kept them going. On the other hand, there are some graduates that find it so difficult in getting paid employment.

So, share your thoughts to help others that are in such dilemma or those that are about finishing their service year.

After service year life truly begins...

it has never been easy, well as you approach the Labour market, my brother, get experience and learn a trade! bullshit ur pride, and learn a trade, it will help when ur are in the Labour market and have nothing doing. do any kind of legit job that can at least put some cash in your pocket, while u continue searching. save a lot of money and probably start a simple business that can fetch u some money or still relocate to one of the top 3 big cities in the country, (but be smart), and fetch yourself any legit job there. get connection on the job, no matter how little, then move one step @ a time. God willing, your breakthrough might just be alittle bit close.

Was teaching during my service year. Finished ending of 2016. Applied and taught in a private secondary school throughout 2017. Then early part of 2018 I had a temporary job to provide safety supervision for a project offshore. The project lasted for 6 months. Later part of 2018 I commenced NPower teaching in a technical college. Apart from the above, I produce liquid detergent, aftershave, Izal, bleach, methylated spirit, and hair cream which I learnt during my NYSC. I was engaged by an ICT Academy to teach an engineering software - Aspen HYSYS - in December last year. A service that lasted for 10 days. I do home lesson, assist university students in design projects. That's how I have been surviving.

I've never really thought of getting any paid employment and won't be thinking about it by God's grace.
I started my vegetable farm just immediately after my service year in 2018. Its not been an easy journey though, but I'm proud of me that I didn't give up when the journey seemed bleak.

I see success... God bless all legit hustlers!

6 months after you pass out from NYSC and no job, please forget pride, forget I AM a GRADUATE and fold your sleeves and go back to drawing board, how Go and learn any handwork or skill like tailoring, welding (engineering graduates), upholstery, aluminium works, mason or pop design, you can also learn sellable online skills and pls while learning humble yourself and forget the graduate level.

You can also assemble 3 - 5 close friends of yours who share similar vision and dream, and you guys can pull your resources together and startup a small scale business, trade or whatever you guys skill can carry.

But try and get a legal personnel to document your deed of business association to avoid any future issues.

I did this with some friends and it paid off. Try it.

God will help you all pass this trying stage, it won't be permanent.

Failure is common to every successful person, it is how you handle your failure that will determine the level of your success in life.

Meanwhile, any Nigerian youth that is unemployed, underemployed or have a relative or sibling that is, and he or she still goes ahead to vote Buhari, then the person should prepare for more economy hardship and unemployment status extensioncry

We all have seen the best of Buhari, his best is very poor, he has tried, let him go back to his cows and allow another person to try too.

2 tenures is not the birthright of any politician, we are not practicing royal kingdom type of government, this is democracy, to merit second tenure, you must work to make life better for Nigerians.

Nigerians wake up, this is beyond politics, it is for the good of our future and that of our unborn generations, we need to start getting things right by voting out any incompent failed President and Governor after their first tenure pls I am begging you all save Nigeria from total destruction by Buhari and his 3-man cabals from Daura angry

Service year is one of the most memorable times in a graduate's life. Enjoy it while it lasts. If possible try starting a small farming business. Save all you can

2014, it all started, when i was an undergraduate, i noticed that whenever i have a gadget people wanna buy it... Fast forward to service year 2015, i started importing power bank and flash drive, i started with Alawi, though i receive some back up like 5 to 10k from home. After nysc, i taught 4 one year and few months. Pay was 23k, it was very hard to live with... During this period, i came across importation treads on nairaland. I started with my 23k salary and sometimes i barely av something to eat, i trek tire. i quit d job, went 4 masters and survived with mini importation and iphone unlock.

Last year i hit fiverr and ate almost $2k, i pump it to importation. B4 fiverr come become hard these days... My advice is that, we should always try to reinvest any cash that flow in.... Now, at times i have at least 50k gain in a month, and sometimes 100k or more. i no remember when last i applied 4 job... Though, i cant say i am successful yet... But with God, all of us go make am last last. I they chop.

I guess I am one of the lucky ones... I burst my ass to learn software development in school and it paid off during and after service year. So all I can say is for you to learn a skill. Preferably a digital skill, that's your ticket to financial freedom during and after NYSC.. Learn learn learn

If you're still a corper and you're carried away by the razzmatazz and the 1year freedom to explore without planning for life after NySC ,sorry is your name.so if I were you I will go and learn a hand skill that can generate business and consequently income for me.unfortunately I see a lot of childish and stupid new generation corpers that just spend all their time and money in beer parlor, naija bet,clubbing and things that will be taking away their money instead of adding to their money.

You go to your places of primary assignments Monday-wednesday and Friday excluding Thursday. So instead of galivating on Thursdays which is your free day on iiidiotic things why not go learn a skill you have interest in so that before you even finish your NTSC,you're already making your own money excluding the lousy and cheap alawee money that can bearly sustain even during NTSC.so gradually you grow your business and after NYSc your business Will have grown substantially


Now the in thing and now has become a cultural thing or an unwritten law is that after nysc,just join the bandwagon and go for masters.whether masters degree is your calling or not ,whether it fits into your goals and aspirations, sha go.if its not masters,they go for MBA. Meanwhile after the so called masters,they still go back into the labor market.now why did these people join the bandwagon of going for masters? Its because their parents pushed then to go into it and what they fail to realise is that if after nysc, you don't chart the course of your life your parents will just be pushing you here and there,they will say bolaji has masters you to go and do masters.whether its what you like or not,they'll just push you into it.so nysc is a time for introspectiion.its a time to sit down with yourself alone and talk to yourself. Tell yourself the hardcore truth.you know yourself better than your parents, wife or girlfriend or boyfriend. Ask yourself, now I'm a graduate.I went to school just like everybody, what do I want to do with my life,how can I survive after nysc with minimal or no help from my parents? How can I make money,what are my interests? Its not a time for you to be turning your vagina to business centre because daddy and mummy is not there with you because if you don't quickly GIve your self brain and make money for yourself, your parents will be making the decisions you're supposed to be making for yourself
