I Made A Third Class Now I Have An Msc About To Apply For My Phd / Finished With A Third Class Degree, Can I Do Masters? / 5 Departments In OAU Where Bagging First Class Degree Is Almost Impossible (2) (3) (4)

The person should beam his search light on German Mtinatinstional corporations in sub-saharan Africa. They don't consider class of degree during recruitment. All they require is at least a BSc for that position. If you have an MBA then it's also a big plus for such industries even if you're from STEM background.
They will only know of your class of degree during documentation which actually doesn't matter to them. All they are interested in is if you can do the job. Do free internships targeted at such industries. These industries pay as high as many oil companies.also UN based jobs don't look at class of degrees and their pay is very competitive and if you're an international recruit then you're a millionaire for life. Same with ECOWAS too, class of degree is not important there too

From my observations, and what have read, no one get rich by working under someone, no billionaire is under a salary structure. That's the reason most class excel in life because they have to think outside the burst because the world of limited opportunities offered to them, they create their own world and outshine others , am not saying ending up as a third class is good but is definitely not bad but a challenge to make you a better person, woke soyinka graduated with a third class, we all know who he is now, senator dino melaye, we have mark zuckerberg, the list goes on.

You can do everything and anything you set to do with it. No limitation

I think I can answer this, as a 3rd class myself, I honed IT skills even before I started regular office work, 5 years after working in different sectors within IT, I quit to start freelancing, never been happier
Just get a skill, that’s all, you’d even surprise yourself
|Re: What Can A Person Do With A Third Class Degree? by xProfx: 11:25pm On Jan 12|
I agree with your assertions as well.
No one deserves to be limited by the class of degree they have, but hey, the reality of this world is harsh when you don't have what it takes to beat certain competition, so if it takes going the extra mile by doing a second bachelor's degree, then that's better than waiting for a figurative "Harvard system" or making excuses.
Harvard is a long way from Nigeria and 90% of universities and companies in the world will judge based on your academic performance... C'est la vie.

Which publication did you get the info from?
|Re: What Can A Person Do With A Third Class Degree? by Gerrard59(m): 12:00am On Jan 13|
Another lie! There are many people living in Nigeria who are very rich by the virtue of working for companies and under people. Please "observe" well.
Wole Soyinka never graduated with a third class: https://www.nairaland.com/1359584/did-not-make-3rd-class
Dino Melaye is a bloody criminal politician who should not be a role model to any serious person.
Mark Zuckerberg dropped out from HARVARD not Auchi or Kwara Poly. Before someone gets admitted into Harvard, the person is not your random folk across the street. Find a better way to link comparison.

You don't need maths to learn to program, some of the best programmers have degrees in philosophy, English, and History. If you can learn a new language you can learn to program, the trick is practice, practice, practice. The world needs more software developers and fewer graduates.
I honestly don't understand the relevance of degrees in a country that has few industries, Nigerian youth should focus on learning a skill.

whyteteeth:Hello my dear Brother. To me School education is a useless thing. Why I consider it as a useless thing is that it consume too much money that you cannot recoup within eight years of graduating(that means if you quickly secure a good job after graduating which is not 100% sure) and it also wastes someone's time; one can be spending 4 or 5 or 6 or 7 or even 8 years on campus before graduating. One of Robert Kiyosaki's book "Rich Dad Poor Dad"; in it, Rich Dad states that "Skills make you rich not theories". You tertiary institution Goers only read theories in School but the real practicals are on the Streets. You learn the real practicals by mingling with the big boys on the Streets. You learn how to make money on the Streets not in the four walls of classroooms. In a nut shell, what I am trying to say is that you should start a business for your; a business that is going to stand the test of time. Let your business name be easily pronounced and remembered. Create an eye catching logo for your business with tagline with nice theme or colour background and register your business name, logo, tagline with its colour scheme or background at the necessary governmental agencies in Nigeria, then you are good to go. Remember, Nestle, Paga, Dell, promassidor, Unilever,Addidas, Puma,MTN, Nokia, etc all started from somewhere. I want you to also remember that most of the World's richest people are either drop outs or that they don't attend School at all.

It depends on how much self development you do. You can always rebrand, seek other areas of passion, consider entrepreneurship if that's your thing, get a PGD and/or Masters etc. This is the age of information. You can achieve so much, doing various things with no limits. Your mind is the beginning of the limitation.
Anyway, we are a team of tutors pooled from Big4 firms in Nigeria, remotely helping with technical skills such as basic financial accounting, using Excel & Powerpoint like a pro, building financial models, valuation, writing credit proposals and business plans, financial statement analysis, CV & Cover letter review amongst others. You get ALL of these for a discounted one-time payment of N20k only.
We are on IG, FB, LinkedIn and Twitter: Big4prep NG. Website: https://big4prep.com.ng/

You can get a profile via instaforex review trading platform as well. I think it's a great opportunity to invest money in something really profitable. This platform is reliable as well.

Except the person wants to work in the academic field, I don't think class of degree matters.
Recruiters only use class of degrees as a method of reducing the recruitment pool. Not that they really care about your class of degree.
So, what really gets you a job anywhere in the world is luck/favor.
And in Nigeria, luck/favor, and connection.
That is why I used to tell people to just submit applications even if they don't have the class of degree the recruiters are asking for.
Just submit to as many places as possible.
It is only if you want to advance in the academic field that your class of degree matters.
But in the corporate world, luck and connection are key.
