Good morning all.
It is a great pleasure to come across this thread, this present time. I'm Oladipupo Ibrahim opeyemi by name. Studied Animal Science/nutrition from FUNAAB. I'm through with my NYSC this year. It is a common notion but now becoming a norm that a Average Nigerian graduate went through hell to get job/sustainance after service. Alot of this stories lead few among us (undergraduate) back then, discouraged, dropped out of school to pursue other dream. They bacame the flagbearer and chanter of the common saying "school is a scam". Many among them have make it though.
less I forget share here, I grad with not too bad grade of second upper(4.3/5.0), I started to job-hunt since my graduation before service, nothing juicy is coming forth. Right now as I write, the situation have gone worse, with some horrible job offer from non-standard, upcoming private school I approach as last resort to my present predicament. many of which are not ready to pay above #20,000. All I want from Nairalander is to help directly, or connect me with proffessionals that could help me with job.
I'm hardworking, trustworthy and intelligent, I will never fail anyone that extend such hand of fellowship, to pull me out of this depression.
I live close to Lagos(Ifo, Ogun state), but I can relocate to anywhere in Nigeria.
I pray Almighty Lord ease our affairs all, Amen. my contact is 09037170746 or oladipupoibrahimoia@gmail.com.

Why I should be employed
There were times I would wonder, "why can't everyone be gainfully employed?" But the question I have always missed is "is there truly a time one needs to stand out from the crowd?" I have stood with the crowd one too many times and now I believe I have to stand out. Everyone wants to be employed. Yes, but for various reasons. Some want to be employed in order to brag to friends, some want to be employed in order to defeat a long line of poverty they hail from. Many want employment just for the sake of living their house every morning so that the family wouldn't ask, "why is dady always at home?" or "why is mumy always at home?": so that when a cow, a goat or a broom get missing, the neighbours wouldn't be asking if you have by chance helped them to see their missing broom. Some wants to be employed in order to ride in flashy cars and afford expensive trips with their family. Some want empowerment in order to afford the sweetest wedding and beautiful women. Some wants to be employed in order to brighten the business world. But it seems am a whole totally different grain in the labor market. "I just want to make 'history' a friend of mine and a geniuses' handshake with time itself". This, I believe, I could achieve through your company and change millions of lives who believe in human well-being both in body and mind.
I can train the body to coordinate with the spirit. I grew up from a long line of fighters and spiritual healers. This history of mine has been enhanced and tailored through academics. I have been shown the ropes to help lift others towards the kinetics of true living. I have helped people found their physical, emotional and spiritual truth, and growth even when they were absolutely lost, and this is because we live in a Universe of possibilities, a universe with infinite chances yet complex in its own beauty. To attain this beauty, health is important and the popular adge says "health is wealth". I want to assure you this fact cannot be reasonably disputed.

To this end, It will be good fortune through your capacity and scarce resources to help bring together efficient men who will in the next five years of your prestigious organization work hand in hand with me in sports science and physical health
You see, the relationship between exercise and the human body is like fuel having an impact on a mechanical component or an engine. A car needs fuel to achieve kinetic effects. The human body has been engineerd in such a way that it requires proportionate movement which may or may not be constant to achieve a certain posture and to kip fit. I can apply scientific principles to exercise and sport in order to shape the muscles and bones. I can guarantee this would open the door to a life of meaning in sports and fitness.
With the help of my academic qualifications, I ventured into the educational sector where I was able to have a great impact on both the community, staff and my students. Every Wednesday from 7:30am to 10am was meant for sporting activities. And these activities were not limited to the popular field event, football. We engage in 50 and 100 meter dash. I invented the loop race. Then on Thursdays we engage in recreation and physical therapy activities. These activities involves the gentle movement but special and specific means to treats conditions such as serious or acute pain, soft tissue injuries, cartilage damage and other physical impairments.
I have B. Edu Human kinetics with an advance certification in coaching both in field and track events. I have my nysc certificate. Also, I am a member of Nigerian cricket association. I am an adept in Microsoft Office suit. I have an SSCE certificate and also a primary school certificate as a top of my class in sporting activities and also as the head boy.
Before I graduated, I was privileged to engage in basic coaching which assisted in boosting my excellent career prospects. Of course, you could say I was experimenting with my young team where I was engaged in Teaching Practice but it brought perfection. I coached tennis, gymnastics, cricket, rugby and swimming. Although I had to abandon the swimming competition due to the parents phobia for water. I showed and assured them that I am decent swimmer and just two LifeGuard was needed. The students were really interested in the rugby because the sport seem strange but had interesting rules. Young people are full of vigour and they love to try out new things. I am also a certified Fitness Instructor. I ensure members of my gymnasium are motivated and pushed to work harder. I also advise on the best diet to suit a particular lifestyle. From time to time women in a particular and some men seek gym time to shed weight. Atimes, they fail to realize that the food they consume and the time at which they eat also contribute to weight gain or weight loss. For instance if you plan to lose weight through dieting, you don't eat once it's past 6pm. This is because, the human boy find it hard to process ingested food during this period.
When you exercise often and in moderation it's hard to experience cardiovascular diseases. Although such can be correct through cardiac rehabilitation and health promotion which I can succinctly handle. I believe my experience, both academic and extracurricular activities over the years in the development of knowledge and practical skills will assist me to provide good health and chronic disease prevention. This of course extends to rehabilitation through the use of lifestyle management, focusing on physical activity and nutrition just like I have explained before.
I believe through consisten training the human body can transition beyond ill health. One can attain a balanced body and mind proportionate to spiritual well being through physical exercise. And just like the spartans changed the course of history, I believe I can influence history thorough your company by engaging the course of technology. I hope to design mechanism that could assist man in sporting activities. Mechanism that could help in regenerating dysfunctional muscles or bones. I believe your company will stand the test of time while we make history. On this ground I believe I should be employed to usher this organization into the future

We just sourced about 1000 litres (50 containers of 20 litres) of pure natural honey.

The honey we sell is golden brown and VERY THICK.

The honey we sell can stand international scrutiny and tests.

I went to LASUTH on Monday to see someone and discovered huge opportunity to sell my original honey in the Hospital.

See, I may not go there and start "hawking" honey. But, I can get someone to sell for me and I pay him or her. In fact, there's another woman in my church that will start selling for us this week. The list of places one can sell original honey is inexhaustible.

Find a market of people that need ORIGINAL UNADULTERATED PURE HONEY and start selling to them.

All you need do is buy 500ml pet plastic bottles

Get a simple label and stick around it and start selling.
PRICE: 2,500 per litre
Volume sales: 2,000 per litre

Re: Some Fun While Job Hunting by BUTTERMILKSUGAR: 5:22pm On Aug 16
Petitequeen:
I never ever felt getting a job would be hard for me. As a top class student in the University, I felt I'd have a myriad of jobs to choose from when I graduate. In my 2nd year in school, I had already subscribed to MyJobMag and NGCareers and with the number of vacancies they churn out everyday, I felt, why would anyone say they couldn't get jobs or that there are no jobs, when it was apparent that firms were practically competing in the search for prospective employees. It really used to amaze me until "owu" blew me...

The plan I had in mind was to do an internship in a prestigious organization before NYSC and then come back after NYSC to secure a position as a staff in that organization or in a better one entirely. And may I bring it to your notice brothers and sisters of God, I am still searching. Me, the self proclaimed top student in the University.... Anyways I haven't lost hope, but I've learn a great deal.

One of the memorable experiences I had in my job search struggle was my interview with a popular food company in Lagos. It was one of my first interviews, so one may feel that I would be a little naive, however I was very confident I would do well as I felt it wasn't a big task. I was good at communication and public speaking as I led so many presentations back in school so an interview wasn't going to be that hard, I thought.

The morning of the interview, I woke up by 4am, took my bath and got dressed before 5am, had a short prayer with my mum over the interview and then left the house around 5:30am,( I stay in Badagry, which is like another state entirely, so you have leave home very early if you want to make it to anywhere on the mainland or island before 9am) I already had the address of the organization I was going to, but I didn't know the place, I had the help of google map and Lagos bus drivers, so I was covered, or so I thought.

My ordeal started when I got to Iyana Ipaja and was supposed to take another bus to Ikeja, prior to this time I had never been to Ikeja, so when I started hearing buses calling "Ikeja along" and others calling "Ikeja inside" I was confused. I was like which one is going to Ikeja naw?? After pondering for a while, I decided to ask one woman selling jewelry on the roadside. I approached her and said, "Madam, please where can I get a bus going to Ikeja?"

she looked at me suspiciously and turned to a young girl seating close to her, who would probably have been her daughter and asked her "ki lo wi?" meaning "what did she say?"

As someone who was bred and 'buttered' in Lagos now, I quickly repeated the question again in Yoruba, only for the woman to look at me and hiss.

"so you know how to speak Yoruba since, you were now shaping your mouth and speaking oyibo English for us? Big madam! You went to school, we have seen you!" She mouthed in Yoruba.

I was surprised, it was only a question I asked, I thought. After about 2 minutes of realizing the woman wasn't going to say any other thing, her daughter decided to help me.

"Go that garage, tell them say..." she started to say, only for the woman to cut her short again..

"why are you telling her? is she blind? can't she hear conductors calling Ikeja inside everywhere?" she spoke in yoruba.

"sebi you went to school?" she turned to ask me, still in yoruba, "didn't you see all these conductors calling Ikeja inside? they are the one going inside Ikeja" she finished off with snort.

Shocked and weak, I thanked the woman and walked towards the bus calling Ikeja inside. I asked the conductor how much the fare was and he told me #300. I quickly sat in and was waiting for the bus to fill up, only for the conductor to announce that the fare was now #400. Everybody inside the bus started shouting and abusing the conductor, why was he hiking the price? was it because his bus was the only one at the garage and people were late? they were all asking and shouting all at once, the conductor kept on hammering that it was #400 and if anyone didn't want to go, the person could equally come down. Everybody started getting down from the bus in annoyance and me, the newbie, also joined them, thinking "no be me conductor go scam this morning"
When the conductor realized people were getting down, he shouted "oya enter for #300, hold your change oh, I no get change..." before the man had even finished his speech, see men and women in suit scrambling to get back into the bus, both people that got down from the bus and people that were standing at the garage waiting for another bus. In the event of the scrambling, I was shoved and pushed and still didn't get a seat.

I had to wait for over 20 minutes for another bus, which I managed to struggle and squeeze myself in. By this time, it was already past 8 and my interview was scheduled to hold around 10.
After spending about an hour in traffic, we finally go to Ikeja underbridge and I managed to get a keke going to my direction, along with my phone showing google map, I finally got to the address.

I entered the building and was told to wait in the reception, along with some other interviewees, after 30 minutes, I was called into another room where a three-man panel sat, the panel was made up of an elderly man, a white man and a woman. I waa told to sit, so I sat.

The white man smiled at me and asked me to tell them about myself, I started off by saying my name and talked for about two minutes. Then the elderly man , with a scowl on his face looked at me and said "This one you're speaking English fre fre fee, can you sell?"

I smiled and told him I could. That I had led a sales project back in school and I was capable of...

"How many main markets do you know in Lagos?, Mention the major markets in Lagos" he interrupted.

I started mentioning the little markets I knew around my area and the man laughed sarcastically, "this one looks like all those ajebo that leave the market runs for their mother" he told the woman seated beside him.

The white man sensing that I had begun to feel nervous asked if I knew their products, I turned to him and said I did and started mentioning some of them, only for the elderly man to cut me short again asking if I use all the products. To be honest, I prefer another brand entirely, but I told him I use some and he started calling out all their products and asking for the market prices and I was only able to answer some of them. He stopped and asked the woman if she had any other question, and she asked me what my strengths were, naive as I was, I said my strength was smiling, that I smile even when I'm not happy, I was trying to smile as I was saying this, but village people no gree oh, the smile didnt come, what came was a rigid teeth showing attempt that was apparently fake.
The woman looked at me with pity and said she had no more questions, I was still trying to regain my consciousness when the elderly man threw the question at me " If you were an animal, what animal would you be?"

I couldn't imagine that they were referring to me so I said "what?"but he repeated the same question, Was I a joke to these people? I asked myself. In my confusion, I replied that I would be a bird. The man asked why, and I said because I love to sing. The looks on their faces showed my reply was foolish, the question itself was foolish, I thought, so I tried to align my reply with the job and then I said "when I'm working, I love to sing as this makes the job look seamless and easier for me" which was a more silly response when I think about it.

The interview ended there, after they said they'd get back to me, which I knew wasn't going to happen. I knew I had flopped big time. I boarded a bus going home along with one of the applicants, so I asked her if she was asked the animal question, she told me she was and she told them she would love to be an eagle because she was foresighted and loved to soar high at all times.
Her reply made much sense and I began to wonder why I didn't think of that. Why didnt I even think of being a Lion? so I could be brave and courageous or a tortoise, so I could be wise?

Anyways, I vowed to be a better animal in my next interview. Being an animal will not disqualify me from any other recruitment process.
hahahaha next time be a better animal
