take courses in data science with python or R programming languages and become a data scientist....you can then take microsoft certificatinn exam in data science, its just abt 35k.
This gives you edge over ordinary accounting grauates and data scientists without accounting background.
You also have your feet in IT and financial sectors.
There are unemployed data analyst don't believe the hype

I would advice you to go for a Post Graduate degree in a field related to your course. Please don't come out with third class again. If your brain can't carry accounting, go for business administration or marketing. A good post graduate degree would over shadow your third class. God's grace dear.

In all honesty, your chances are slim. However, if you can afford to, start ICAN asap - forget about pgdm, mba and the likes. ICAN, increases your chances of getting that dream job... Because in a nutshell accounting is simply documenting income and expenditure, and the attendant options of being proficient in procurement, taxation, fleet management/Logistics and even problem solving skills can be an added advantage.

Secondly, enterpreneurship is another option but I can deduce that you've challenges raising start up capital if not you would have tried something after your youth service.

Finally, forget that degree, pretend you never wasted funds in a university to acquire it, now scroll through your phone book - time to rekindle old connections.

Why no u can get a better job... Whatever class u graduated with does not determine your level of success in life... I have the same experience too but glory be to God what a 1st class has not achieve, I have. Also ensure you know your God more and also go for more career courses and if u wouldn't mind try entrepreneurship.
Re: Can I Still Get A Job With My 3rd Class Degree In Accounting? by Itiswell2018: 9:53am On May 16
Of course u can, I also graduated with a third class degree in engineering and I'm working with a reputable government agency without knowing anybody. I served there and got retained. All u need to do is to stay focused and believe in urself. Don't ever doubt ur capability and don't be negative in ur thinking. Always embrace positivity and above all Pray very well. The sky is ur starting point I can assure u.

What happened to networking? You rarely get jobs based on paper qualifications. The OP needs to build tenable job connections
Re: Can I Still Get A Job With My 3rd Class Degree In Accounting? by 3Dimension: 9:54am On May 16
@OP. first certificates don't give you jobs, They can only open certain doors,
The most important thing is to get some skills, improve yourself the best way you can, and your certificate will be an afterthought for employers.

For all my employments, I only present my certificates minimum 6 months into the jobs (I'm not third class anyway).

Yes you can. I graduated with a 3rd class in accounting also and I have changed jobs thrice since I graduted in 2009. I even secured a job before most of the top guys in my class. Certificate is over rated bro.

Focus more on networking instead of applying for jobs

When you meet the right people, You will even get a job a first class has been fasting and praying for


Nigeria employment has nothing to do with Degree, Its about connection. You can have a degree in Zoology and be the heard of logistics in an oil company!

I'm actually a 3rd class graduate of accounting. University of Ilorin. But I'm presently in the office where I earn a comfortable salary. The most important is self development. You can register for a PG degree and subsequently Masters or professional courses as ICAN, CIBN ETC. The sky is your limit.

If u are connected class of degree will never stop u from getting employed. Anybody asking for your class of degree before collecting your CV is not willing to help u. I work with a federal government agency it may interest u 2 know that I've seen people with even a pass degree in d same federal government agency. Don't limit your scope, try get strong people and connect yourself. Only people with university mindset have that believe that u can only succeed with a particular class of degree.
