The 4 Common Types Of Graduates In Nigeria - Which One Are You? by BiafranBushBoy: 4:13am On Mar 16
I have studied the average Nigerian graduate to an extent to know the several categories of them. We all had the impression that once we get out of school, we would all come out, get good jobs and become rich.

I guess I wasn’t the only one who has such mindset – we all did.

Reality has dawned on us a little bit and it is clear that it doesn’t work that way any longer if you don’t have “long legs”.

This gave rise to mental conditioning and created a new mindset that becomes the real drive behind our personalities of late.

In this article I will be explaining the types of graduates that we have around us, so you can choose which one you would want to become.

Are you ready?

Types of Graduates in Nigeria

Have you heard someone say “I must make am” while sleeping almost every day, surfing the internet, and chatting all day?

That is the typical “talk and play” graduate.

They talk the talk but don’t walk the walk. They always believe they can become who they want to be with no actionable plan to back it up.

They graduate from school and keep wishing for that fairy tale job. They stay at home and visit job sites with the sole aim of fulfilling all righteousness. They don’t really care about starting out small.

All they want is become rich – the only problem is that they don’t know HOW!


The “God will do it” Graduates

Talk about those who spend more time praying than making an impact in their lives. They have all the opportunities to acquire skills, develop their personal lives, but they always believe that God will do it in his own time.

Come on!

I am not against religious beliefs, but God has given us all that we need to succeed already. Praying from money till night in the church won’t give you the job you need if you aren’t qualified for the job.

Praying won’t give you a high paying job if you don’t have the qualifications.

Will God do it for you? Hopefully, if you first do it for yourself!


The “There is no job anywhere” Graduates

These ones don’t believe that there are jobs in Nigeria. They believe that you can either get a job through connection or you get a low-paying job.

They believe that good jobs are meant for those children of politicians. So when you tell them success stories of people who have gotten jobs by learning new skills and using them to apply for jobs, they term it a huge lie.

In most cases, they ask “HOW?”

They forget that the process is quite simple. Are you among the “there is no jobs” type of graduate?

Sorry to tell you, the last type of graduates will prove you wrong.

The “Talk and Do” Graduate

He knows what he wants, he goes after them, and he becomes successful. His friends call him lucky, haters will say he is into something illegal, and main friends will term him hardworking.

His goal is to earn a monthly income of more than 150k Naira as a young graduate – and he is building that future.

He may not graduate with the best results, but he knows the secret to get a high paying job.

When you ask him the steps, he will reply you frankly;

Choose a lucrative skill (Software development, Mobile Application development)
Register and start learning
Use your skill to apply for a job
Start making money easily.

It is as simple as the way I have outlined here. The “Talk and do” graduate understands this, so he has done it already and making money already.

He wants to become rich just like you and I wants too, so he is already going after what he wants. He understands that only a lucrative skill can get you a good job, so he is busy learning skills that will make him money.

I studied a course that if I needed a job, I would have to relocate to Lagos. Even though I have never been to Lagos, I don't seem to like the place based on stories I have heard about how stressful life is in Lagos.

What I did instead was to create my own job. Today, I live in a saner small town with an income that is like what people living in Lagos earn. Everyday, I try to find new means of earning income. Recently, I have been playing with the idea of creating a totally passive means of income. Things are beginning to fall in place.

Soon enough, I hope to start earning up to $1k in passive income. Once that happens, I would start my African sex tour. A dream I have been nursing for so long.

All of us are "Talk and Do" Graduate nah


I told someone how i started and he was wow-ed. Even when i didn't have an office for my business, i used my dinning table as my office.

I arranged my laptop and documents on the table. I sat there from 9am to 1pm because i saw it as my working hours. When someone calls me and ask, Are you at home? I always say No, i am in my office.

Some will say "Ah Ah which office?" I will tell them i will see them by 1pm when I'm on break.

This was how i started, and since then, God has been faithful on my business

I finished NYSC service last year and tried job hunting, after wasting three months, the job still wasn't coming despite numerous interviews. I just pack my certificates throw inside bag, and I've been doing business apprenticeship since then. Even with all the millions wey dey my account I'm still serving someone as "boy boy" and I don't get paid.
So far I've been able to learn a lot about business and if I apply the skills that I've gained over the years, I'm 100% sure it would work out. I'll be starting my own business before the month ends.

You can't extricate grace from hardwork/smartwork to make success happen.
Re: The 4 Common Types Of Graduates In Nigeria - Which One Are You? by LucemFerre: 8:50am On Mar 16
Hehe... Wake da fvck up. Talk and do, talk and sleep or do and die. If you ain't lucky you're fvcked. Life isn't all mathematics. But, a little hope there, a little faith here, a little luck there... That's how it is.
All these motivational speakers that will tell you to "go out there and get it" as if their fada keep am for somewhere make you go carry.

Work as hard as you can in life, hope for the best, expect the worse. You won't be surprised. Nothing is guaranteed. You can work extremely hard and die wretched, it's life.
The Nigerian mentality is that, when you have no job or ain't doing good, you are termed as lazy and not doing anything about it or lying down and waiting for miracles.
People just sit in front of their phones and type n0nsense without knowing what people are going through. I no blame dem sha. Na me carry myself come Nairaland cheesy

Dude, find somewhere sitdown. You haven't done any research and you don't know sh!t. I'm not telling people to be lazy but, there are like billions of kinds of graduates. No 2 people are the same in this world.

Peace

Talk+pray+do = projected success (ideal situation)
Talk +pray+do+(-money) = probability of success due to low /no financial capability (reality for graduates with no finances)
