Wondering why you aren’t getting any callbacks?⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here are the possible reasons:⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. Disorganized Resume – Many people neglect to put in the time and effort to create an effective resume. You cannot just throw information on your resume. There must be a strategy. It MUST be organized. ⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. You’re Not Qualified – If the position called for a ‘project manager’, while you are an accountant, or the position required an MBA in marketing, while you are not a graduate with marketing experience, do not expect a call back from the recruiter. You are not a good fit for every position that is posted online. ⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. They’re just not into you – You're great, but someone else closely met the qualifications and that is OKAY. ⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4. You fall Short – Say you are a website developer, but the job profile mentions preference to candidates from e-commerce with social media management expertise, you may not be the best fit. ⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
5. Priorities change – Sometimes, due to last minute budget cuts, a position is eliminated before it's even filled. So, the recruiter may simply stop calling candidates or give you a standard response when you try to follow up.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Intelligentdude:
Holistic approach to Job Search
1.) Join LinkedIn, if you aren't already on it. Follow recruiters, HR professionals, many of them post jobs almost daily. Engage with them, like and comment on their posts. Forget Facebook, Instagram and the rest for now. They won't help you. Also try to have at least 300 connections to make you seem credible. Post things (articles, pictures, etc) related to your industry.

2.) Make a list of at least 300 companies you'd like to work with. Find out the names and emails of the person hiring, e.g, The Hiring Manager, The Human Resources Manager, etc. If you can't find those, the CEO will do. People are more likely to respond to a ''Dear Mrs Kemi'' or "Hello Mr Dozie" than a "Dear Ma" or Hello Sir". Remember that LinkedIn you joined, it will come in handy here.

Send each one an email, stating whom you are, your qualifications, what you are bringing to the table, i.e, how you can help their company. Make it short! Busy executives don't have time to read long emails. Also make it about them, they don't want to read your life story. You can google job application cold email samples to get a clearer idea of what I mean.

3.) Don't wait till you're done with NYSC. . Start applying like three months before passing out. After NYSC, apply to a minimum of 30 jobs daily. Don't just apply randomly, that's how people are scammed. They apply to so many jobs that they don't know whether the one sending them message is one that they applied to. Know the exact type of job you are applying for..

Good evening everyone!

Our Q and A session is here! Q and A session is all on Volunteering and non-profits. We are excited to bring to you the 4th in the series!

We have 4 questions! A few from our Telegram group members and some from people who sent personal messages. We had to cut it to 4 due to the kind of questions we were answering.

Here are the questions to dissect.
1. Why are you into volunteering?What other previous experiences do you have with it?
2.Does it increase my chances of travelling abroad? And are there opportunities to volunteer in other places?
3. I'll like to know if organisations, non profit, NGOs etc conduct prior training for volunteers who are willing to serve but do not have prior experience or skill in that area.
4. How can I sustain myself as an unemployed volunteer?


To make it easier for everyone here are the time stamp

Introduction 0.00-0:14
Question 1 0:15-1:06
Question 2 1:07-2:05

Hello. Am a final year student of chemical engineering in one of
the country's federal university, entering the uni 5 years ago i
thought am going to find it easy when graduating with at
least a minimum of 2.1 because i have never been far away
from the best students. But along the line i got too
comfortable with that benchmark i gave myself and
somehow somewhere found myself graduating with 2.2 now
which i have been so disappointed with myself knowing that
the minimum requirement in seeking for jobs now is mostly
2.1 and am also feeling that i have disappointed my family
because there were expecting a much better result from me
due to the fact that they know am not a bad student. I
currently do not know what to do after graduation with this
result and it has really be making me depressed and
worried. I don't know what to do next in as much that i really
wants to continue in my line of profession as a process
engineer or i switch into IT since am also very interested in that area all well.

Hi. What area will you like to build a career?
Re: Career Path To Follow : Preparing yourself for the Labour Market by Intelligentdude(m): 3:34pm On Jan 06
Hello, sadly you cannot do anything about your class grade but you can do something about your life grade. While it is true that most organizations go for candidates with at least a second class upper, some organizations also focus on skills and sabificate. You can choose to build
a career as a process engineer or you can switch to Information Technology(which is the current trend),but first you need to first work on your self confidence then your skillset.

This is an encouraging thread, I love it
Intelligentdude:
I have been pondering on creating this thread for a while but because of my schedule, I had to postpone it and have been postponing it until today.

My name is Kenneth popularly known as intelligentdude. I am a Career Consultant and a recruiting personnel (Talent Acquisition Coach)with Intelligentdude Consult. Over the years,I have had interactions with a good number of graduates/corp members who are yet to define their career path even after graduation and most of them wander around not knowing what to do.

While working as a Human Resource Personnel/Admin. in one of the top web design and branding organizations in Lagos,I came in contact with graduates who were yearning to be properly guided in their career path so as not to spend their years in futility. Moreso,in the course of me writing/rewriting Curriculum Vitae(CV)for a good number of applicants,I have come to realize that most graduates need professional guidance in their career path.

While education is very important,it is expedient that graduates/corp members acquire the necessary skills in their area of study/interest/passion. Employers prefer those who do not only have certificate but possess sabificate. Sabificate simply means what you can do (wetin you sabi).

NYSC year is a year that can make or mar you depending on how you choose to utilize it. A good number of Corp members finish their youth service without acquiring any relevant skill which can help them transit quickly and successfully into the labour market. A graduate of Electrical Engineering who is posted to a Secondary School or Local Government can attach himself to an Electrician just to deepen his practical knowledge and experience.

Please understand,you can learn a profitable skill from anyone notwithstanding if he/she is an illiterate or literate. A graduate of Mechanical Engineering can volunteer to go worth with the seemingly illiterate Mechanics in his/her domain just to acquire the needed Technical skill and experience.
There are different opportunities one can take advantage of while serving to acquire needed skills and experience which will surely come to play while job hunting.

Starting a career in can be fairly straightforward. You pick an area of focus, learn it, and eventually find someone to hire you to do that type of work. As you grow, though, the path forward can become much less clear.

As a graduate of Computer Science,there are different career paths you can follow and this should inform your decision in the type of skills to acquire/learn and also the professional trainings you should undergo and the certifications you should possess.

As a graduate of Computer Science,you can pursue a Career as a:
1) Software Developer
2)Hardware Engineer
3) Web developer
4)Business Analyst
5)Quality Assurance Manager
6)Database Administrator
7)Network Administrator
viii)Security Analyst
9) IT Architect
10)Video Game Developer
11) Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Engineer
12)Data Scientist
13)Cloud Computing Engineer
14)Research and Development Scientist

Not only are computer science degrees needed for a number of applications across nearly every industry, but the total number of computer science jobs has also been steadily increasing. Those who did not study Computer Science in their undergraduate days are now coming onboard to learn and acquire IT Skills.

For those serving in fairly remote areas, if you would like to acquire a skill which can pay your bills,then you might want to consider Laptop repairs,phone repairs,Digital Marketing,Graphics, etc.

Task: Feel free to state the course you read or the career path you want to follow so I can counsel you on the professional trainings to undergo,the certificates to acquire etc.

You can also call/chat(whatsapp) us on : 08134657689 for your CV/Cover Letter,Job Search Support,Scholarship Search Support,Linkedln Profile Optimization,Statement of Purpose(SOP),LOI/LOM, Research Proposal,Assignments etc.

Hello sir, I'm a fresh graduate of Environmental Biology/Zoology with a 2:1. I'm still waiting for my Nysc which will come up any moment from now, maybe by March. Now, I have a passion for Environment related works, I'm also planning to obtain a professional certificate on HSE during the course of my Nysc. Also I have a digital marketing skill I learnt a week ago which have not started yielding any profit yet, maybe because I'm not serious with it yet.

So what is your advice for me as an Environmental biologists/Zoologist looking forward to build a career around Environmental work sir?

If you have any other career advice that will suit me better, I will still appreciate it because I'm still a novice in this game.... Just trying to be ready before entering the labour market, so that I will know the particular area to channel my energy to
