Haba... In 2019 see the question this one is asking.


Gbe body eh joor


How can just be trying to wake up


So with all that is happening in Nigeria you can't grasp that self employment is the way? Why then did you go to school.... I tire for u o.


Is your destiny every body's destiny, why are you asking everybody.... Are we the ones who sent you to school?

Oga pursue your dreams. Stay woke and hustle.


After school is hustle.

I will advise that you try to venture into something first no matter how small because there is really no jobs out there.

My advice to any fresh graduate is to get certifications. Go get real certifications. I cannot overemphasize the importance of getting certifications. My friends who are HR managers in big Companies tell me they have vacancies. Plenty lot of them. But they rarely get people with the required certifications and couple of years of experience to take them up. For instance, there is a very high demand for Business analysts, HR analysts and Managers and Project managers with CIPM or PMP, PRINCE2 or SIGMA. These certifications don't come cheap but it sets you ahead of others. Also, the startup pay for them is not bad too.

Another option is to acquire IT skills. You can never go wrong with that. Thankfully, with YouTube, you don't have to pay through your nose to get started. Simply search for 'Skill name + tutorials' on YouTube. Find videos that are over 5 hours long. Take the course religiously. After that, register on Upwork and Freelance to offer your skill there. This is what thousands of 'reasonable' youths are doing to make thousands of dollars month. If you have a smartphone, laptop and access to internet and you are still broke, then your head needs to be checked seriously.

Continue building yourself by learning new stuffs especially on the internet other than doing Facebook and Instagram.
If you studied a science course, learn about finance, economics, politics. If the other way round, learn about nutrition, medicine, computers and engineering. I assure you that you will go a long way.
Don't remain stagnant

lipsrsealed

First of all, depending on what you studied, you need to forget your certificate and hustle like a drop out.


But then, if what you studied is professional, aim for relevant certifications.
This is the time to acquire skills, digital or otherwise, I no go tell you say jobs no dey, but I no go forget to tell you say the one wet dey no go reach everybody. Goodluck.

My guy you need skills asap

I will strongly advise you learn IT skills - programming will be good and if you can afford it CCNA, programing is what saved my life, it's the reason why i am alive and balling, i got a job with a reputable IT firm before finishing my service and when there was mass layoff in my place i got another job within same month with plenty other offers i turned down, when people hear my pay they tend not to believe it

All my friends that are not into IT are still on the street getting insulted with 25k, 40k jobs even the one that attended private school while my other programmer friend is even better than me

The street is tough my brother, no one cares, everyone expects from you, even your parent will stylishly start nagging about food, something they've been doing since your birth but now it will be a big deal to them

This country and society is of no help unless you have something doing you will be tempted with all sort of vice, don't wait till you become desperate, start now

Few would get jobs by merit or connect, many will get ok jobs 20 to 80k salary, some will have side hustle with their jobs, some will face business/hustle solely. Learn a skill too
