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!
Bro be strong, I have applied for than that, Nigeria for you. Keep the light burning. God can use someone one day.

Ok
Guys pls come to my rescue.

I applied for several foreign job through indeed,I can say 60% of them shortlisted my name for interview.(Security job)
The problem naw is that immediately I replied by telling that I'm in Nigeria and ready to relocate,they will tell me alot of locals with same or more experience can fill my position.

Guys pls help me, what's the way out? advice on me on what to include on my CV that would attract them to invite me over irrespective of my present location.



You cant do anything. Most foreign based companies wont go through stress of sponsoring you to come and do work that ordinary locals could do. Their government wont even approve the sponsorship. This action of yours is what create panic and pressure. Once you see that you are not entitled to work within that country, there is no need stressing yourself. Focus your attention on where you have superior advantage like permission to work.

UK/Canada/US/EU/Gulf States hardly permit employers to bring in foreigners to do jobs that locals could do. I have done some consultancy jobs for some NGO that specifically requested that you must be a Nigerian to apply and not open to international consultants. Some will advertise for consultancy jobs in Nigeria and make it clear that the job is opened to only international consultants or expatriates. I don't waste my time applying.

1500 applications a month, are you serious shocked shocked
mosquitoway:


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

Instead of simply making direct applications, get close to an employee in your desired firm and ask for a recommendation. Very powerful, trust me

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 !

Don't mind him, soon, his brethren will rush to the thread and sympathize with him. bashing is welcome and we're also ready to give it back in folds. However, I don't subscribe to the idea of giving out a job based on ethnic or religious affliation.

LinkedIn do not focus on "University of popular"

All they wanna see is skills

I mean real skills

With lots of recognized certification


Haven't you been a receiving a DM from LinkedIn official advising you to take a course....

When you have bunch of them on your profile.... international/loc job can easily locate you and will message you

What you're saying is totally different from the op is saying... He's not complaining of not being called upon for an interview, rather he wasn't picked after several failed interviews even getting to the last stage of the selection process.

If according to you his skills are poorly rated or spent have any at then why was he still shortlisted for an interview.

The truth is most jobs in Nigeria is "man know man", padi2 padi". Jad he knows somebody or applied to a company where his kins men own in very sure the story would have been different.
