TOPCRUISE:Who told you that?
|Re: What Can A Person Do With A Third Class Degree? by samwillyco1(m): 8:44pm On Jan 12|
I am telling you the fact, you can make enquires about it. Under normal academic certain someone with 2.1 in his first degree will be considered/ favoured first than someone with 2.2,or 3rd class with masters, in times of lecturing job in any public universities in Nigeria under NORMAL Situation ( without influence from anyone ).

I graduated with a 3rd class in Mechanical Engineering and I must confess that it is somehow tough getting a job couple with the fact that the age grade for jobs is 26years with 2.1
I am currently doing my PGD in Info Tech where I think I can have an higher chance at nailing a bigger pay job.
But I have equipped myself with different certificates, so it comes handy as back up for my grade.
I pray I nail that big pay job because if hard work equals money, I should have been a Billionaire by now..
All in all, never give up and trust in God.

Even first class and second class graduates are going into business or highly demanded skill acquisition. Just embrace one of the options and move on.

In the year 2013, I asked for advice on Nairaland through this thread concerning step to take with my 3rd class degree.
Here is the content of the thread if you don't want to open the link:
I graduated from OAU Electrical/Electronics Engineering department 10 years ago. I had a personal problem beyond my control towards my first semester exam in Part 3, I left without taking a leave of absence thinking that I will not be able to continue with the course and I was given zeros in my registered courses of 24 units!. The second semester was NRI (No Registration Information) and my GPA was further divided by another 16 units (I was told this is OAU policy for NRI). I later overcame the problem and went back to continue the course and as serious as I was, I graduated with 3rd Class.
I gained admission for PGD in UI for statistics thinking that after the PGD I will continue with my master. I got aggregate of 61% but surprisingly after that I was told that there is a policy in UI that once you have a 3rd class, UI will not admit you for academic master!
Simply because of the proximity of my office to UI and being a family man, Its only UI that is convenient for me. I decided to start afresh by sitting for the jamb and Putme. I have just been admitted for Economics on Merit list (100 level - Jamb 264, PUME -61) and I have paid the acceptance fee.
My question is this: I am now 38 years (which worries me), will it profit me to continue with this decision of starting another course from 100 level?
Or I should try to go and do my master in another school other than UI.
If anything is not clear, you are free to ask.
I EVENTUALLY WENT FOR THAT ECONOMICS AND GRADUATED IN 2018 WITH 2:2
GOOD! I DID NOT USE ANY OF THE CREDENTIALS - I MOVED TO THE USA IMMEDIATELY WHEN I FINISHED IN MAY 2018
THIS IS ANOTHER THREAD I USED TO SEEK ADVICE WHILE I WAS CONTEMPLATING ON GOING TO THE USA.
https://www.nairaland.com/4316234/please-need-advice-us-visit : Hello all, I got US visa for a conference though my intention was to immigrate. I know no one in US. I wonder how I will survive the first month. How much should I hold at least to face the uncertainties if the first month. Any other similar experience will be highly appreciated. Help a brother pls. Thank you in advance.
TO CUT THE LONG STORY SHORT. A CONDEMNED 3RD CLASS GRADUATE OF THEN IS NOW MAKING AT LEAST 4500 USD EVERY MONTH. IN 2019, I MADE OVER 50000 DOLLARS IN MY BUSINESS AS THAT WAS THE SEASON. I WILL SHOW SOME EVIDENCE HERE BUT WILL NOT GO TO DETAILS SINCE THIS IS NOT MY THREAD. I have sent over 32 million naira to Nigeria through my Access bank alone all less than 3 years. I have other banks I use.
MY POINT IS THAT EDUCATION IS GOOD BUT NIGERIAN SYSTEM AND LEADERSHIP IS WASTING OUR TIME AND EFFORT. ORDINARY COLLEGE PEOPLE AND ILLITERATES ARE MAKING IT. WHY WOULD A 3RD CLASS, A DEGREE HOLDER WILL NOT MAKE. DONT LET ANYONE DOWNGRADE YOU.
TO THOSE WITH 2-2, 2-1, AND 1ST CLASS, LIFE IS NOT ABOUT CGPA, I AM FEEDING A LOT OF MY FRIEND THAT HAVE THAT NOW.

No back then I registered with the University library and was reading lots of programming books, started with C++ for Dummies series , then tried Java , Php and Mysql.
This just gave me the momentum to learn programming.
Funny enough I wasn't attending lectures often, my advice is the best time to learn anything is when you are under lesser pressure.

samwillyco1:You are correct.So many public universities do not even consider 2.2 graduates for lecturing job let alone 3rd class even if you later get PhD

Ask George W Bush and Bill Gate.
Think / find the needs of the people in your community and provide them service. Treat your customers right and come back here in 12 months and slap me with 2 million naira.
Degree is good, but when your degree is not good enough to compete in the few opening job market, you create a job so that those with spectacular degrees can work for you.
75% of Forbes billionaires have neither college degree nor finished college. Couple of them barely finished high school, most dropped out of college, while the rest got just a high school diploma.
What can you do for people? Think outside the box, and bam, you are made.

Can't some guys make their comments without slightly attacking 2.1 and first class graduates?
In this era of our time even first class and 2.1's are not sitting back on certificates only. Everyone wants to make it regardless of the degree.
