Within a year, I've applied for 188 jobs on LinkedIn. Some I was called for test and interviews, some I was never called. None of them gave me a job. There are some I applied via mail, not LinkedIn "easy apply"......so it should be over 200.

The last one was with a Yoruba company in Lagos. I applied via LinkedIn. I passed through 3 interview processes. The 4th was with the MD/CEO( Yoruba aged and titled man). He practically told me I am omo ibo(ibo man) and that I don't have the passport.

I'm officially done searching for jobs!!!
I'm throwing in the towel!

I don't know if you're a Christian but if you are Joseph, Daniel, mordecai all got juicy jobs in foreign countries not withstanding. Keep applying & keep praying. Goodluck

@op, remember how many times Thomas Edison tried the light bulb experiment before he got light? Some say 1,000 others say 10,000. Either way, both figures are bigger than 188.
What if he had quitted at 188

Firstly, If the Yoruba MD was tribalist you wouldn't have had the opportunity to seat with him. The moment he saw your name on your CV he would have dismissed you.

Secondly, you fugged up.. when he brought up the omo Igbo gist you should have tried to make light of the situation e.g. banter with him that you're omo Yoruba at heart and even attempt to speak a bit of Yoruba just to make light of the situation.

No matter where you work you will always find ppl who will throw banter at you because you're Igbo, Yoruba, Tall, Short, Fat, Slim etc.. so you need to get your mind right asap otherwise you'll end up on the streets

I like the way you made your point.
Simply yet intelligent.

Re: Applied For 188 Jobs On Linkedin, No One Clicked. I'm Done Searching! by Lastlook: 9:45am On Jun 02
I was like this before, what i did was to create a website with what i can offer. After that, i filled in my linkedin profile with all necessary details but i didnt "quote am looking for job"

Stated my past experience which most are online and companies, i have worked for.

Key and very important
1. Join a lot of group on linkedin that is related to what you can offer. Post once every 2 days in each group of what you can offer.

2. Make sure you have more than 300 connection related to your job seeking or what you want to do.

3. Thank me later

If you dont get a job within a month, come back here and mail me.

After about 4 month, i got a job, which i was not aware of for more than a month(because i used the website personal mail and i didnt check it regularly)

They mail me them self, even i replied after a month. Got the job but it was just for a year, the salary was strong enough to buy a CAR per month.

Anyway that was then, man is broke and doesnt want to work.

Just 188 grin. I can apply to 50 jobs at a go. In a month that's 1500. I am in IT Sha. Another 50 on indeed. Around 100 jobs a day.

i do not normally comment on this forum, but the applications the OP sent out are very minimal, in canada you do an average of 1500 in a month and might not get a job in 6 months, in the uk u might have to send out 3000 applications a month . All with several interviews and auto responses saying another candidate has been chosen. I am actually impressed you got any calls with such minimal effort

They don't want to stress themselves and they believe you don't have the cash to relocate on your own.

I receive foreign job offers steadily via LinkedIn, just that I am not in their country, they stop there.

Extremely well paid jobs.. start making plans.

I feel you bro

You have to be strategic! If you are to apply for jobs via LinkedIn, don't apply for any job that comes your way, tweaking your CVs to suite each. Maintain your CV and focus on one particular area of interest.

Alternatively, disconnect from LinkedIn to be able to tweak your CV to suite the particular job you are applying. This is because potential employers go to LinkedIn to check your profile. If your profile differs from what you submitted, Oyo na your name. I removed my profile and qualifications from LinkedIn. This has enabled me to apply directly to companies, changing my CV and work experiences to suite different circumstances without fear of being checked out on LinkedIn.

There's a law against employing foreigners especially if it is a job that citizens can do. But you think that they can just bypass that law easily. We have a Nigerian way of thinking that protocols can be broken very easily with the right pressure. But I sincerely wish you best of luck.

To get job security man job sef for naija sef na war.

But there are lots of side hustles you can get busy with that bring daily income.

Cheers.

Let me give you a brotherly advice, and I hope you work on it...
First of all I counsel people and I have done that on nairaland for a while... I have met great and good guys...
I dropped a story about my experience teaching in two schools as a corper and would not mind partnering with schools in abuja, but some accused me of looking for teaching job... Never ever mind what people say...
Back to the matter...
As a graduate, teaching and earning 15k, e no bad... But once you have a good (android) phone, go to any car stand of your choice around your area... Listen well, any good car stand and ask to see the manager... Tell him you want to help him market his cars and get good buyers... 90% of car stand managers will sign u on... Tel him you will be paid a small commission after sales...
Pick up your phone, snap as many cars as your phone memory can take, open a dedicated twitter ac, IG ac, Facebook ac, WhatsApp ac, ac etc... Take out time to post this cars, make sure you have the actual prices of this cars... You can add as much as #250k on it... Bring down the negotiations to as low as making #50k if need be just so I can sell. Set your monthly target... I assure you, if you get I client in a month, u make around #100,000k once you start growing, you can get as much as 5-10 client from all over the country and that hits you over #1m for just helping others sell their cars, Note all you invested was your time, energy, phone and data... No big financial capital...
Do not restrict yourself to cars, go for industrial machines as well, caterpillars, mikano gens, any thing, then you look for those big companies that need them and try to call their attention to it or market it to them... You may not sell in 3 months but when you manage to get a client to buy just 1 caterpillars, my brother you will instantly forget that u suffered before...
A friend of mine was marketing a silo for a local wielder, he received a call all the way from kebbi state, the purchase was made in Ilorin, he made #1.8 mil from buyers and #400k from seller... He still got a referral from that deal. Wake up bro...
Within a month or two, come and pay (tite).
I drive uber/bolt in abuja, market cars, sell commodities such as beans, maize, wheat,
ginger,onions, name it... In bags and tonnes
And I make nothing less than half a mil monthly...We all blessed my nigga ! Baba I had liked to learn more about these hustles. Can I pm you plz?
