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.
what business can you recommend cuz I'm interested too

How did you come out with a 3rd class?

It is either you were doing kerewawa from one female hostel to the other or you are both dull & broke, coz success is expensive in most of our Nigerian universities.

If you no know book, get the money to use check insults from your lecturers.

I think you actually deserve what you got..


For all those shouting certificate is overrated, us your own clean yansh after u use pit latrine na.

My advice to you is to find a skill and learn or buy a laptop.


Don't be surprised a third class graduate is your boss. Please keep quiet if you don't know what to say.

Certificate is just mind games so free your mind and fly bro ..even if you finish with 1st class as an accountant nobody will pay you more than 200k a month and it will not help you ... Free your mind and before the end of this year accountants will be begging to do your books

my cousin presently earn higher than 200k..With ICAN 300k should be a starting salary..

I feel very ashamed replying yhu this time. Yhu know why? Because judging from yhur comment, it's very obvious yhu are even more stupid than I had earlier thought.

I don't blame yhu though, I blame cheap data sellers that avail yhu the opportunity to display yhur stupidity here.

Let's forget about pride, I am sure yhu won't be able to open yhur mouth to spew rubbish if we meet physically.

I just have one advice for yhu, go and get a life before it's too late. I am definitely not in yhur league.

Even the op will be confused too many advise...
What i just know is that what work for A will not work for 8
time and chance happen to everything in life...
Op should just work hard and pray
we are in a world where anything can happen.
It might even be ur 3rd class that will open door for u. Don't just stop keep belifing and do personal development.
Whr i work a colleague of mine earn 90k per month as an ict officer without going to school.. He only paraded a fake OND result as his own... Belief i don't earn close to what he earn as a data entry operator in that company despite the fact that i know most of the things he handles.

I graduated with a Third class in Accounting too, many years ago. It will be a tough path but you can succeed if you stay focused. Try and look for internship positions and gain some experience (even if you need to pay for it) Once you get in, you most likely will become family and get hired. Best of luck.

No offence - but educational investments without the prerequisite networks is wasted effort in today's society.
The way out is simple, keep applying, make it a habit to apply for at least 5 jobs every day. Call your more successful peers, resist the temptation to beg for monetary help... Instead ask for referrals on companies/organisations that are hiring, believe me you, they always know!

Good certification matters no doubt, but if I tell u you can b a bank manager with that ur LOWER CLASS result u won't believe it, don't dispute it. The only problem I see is probably u don't have an upper LEG,; if u have somebody who can offer u employment Wat is required alone is,,, IS IT A DEGREE OR HND result? if u like come out wit 1stClass u will earn desame salary with anybody wt PASS IN DEGREE
