Best Steps For A Successful Job Hunting In Nigeria by Cvclue11(m): 3:38pm On Jul 02, 2021
Getting a job these days is more difficult than it has ever been. In fact, it's turned into a full-time career. Job prospects in Nigeria are becoming increasingly scarce, and only the most astute job seekers will succeed. The situation is exacerbated by the fact that thousands of professionals are released into the Nigerian job market every day, increasing competition for available positions and making job hunting in Nigeria a difficult task.

However, with the right strategy, you may locate a suitable career of your dreams in a reasonable amount of time and with minimal stress.

Whether you're just starting out in the job market, looking for a career shift, or seeking for a change of scenery, the top 5 Successful Job Hunting Tips that Work in Nigeria will ensure your success.

Your CV should not only highlight your academic accomplishments and experiences, but it should also entice a potential employer.

This means that the CV must stand out from the crowd and grab the reader's attention. It must show that you are capable and talented in areas such as teamwork, planning, and innovation.

You should also make certain that the information on the CV is accurate, authentic, and verifiable, since this will help to establish confidence.

The internet is awash with advice on how to construct a decent CV and what types of CVs most companies like. Take advantage of the opportunity, do some research, and create a killer CV that your potential employer will find appealing.

Look for jobs that aren't listed.
A new fad Nigerian businesses are growing in their search for new personnel, and this does not include public announcements of job openings.

They perform their headhunt through word-of-mouth or internal recruitment among the available personnel, rather than publicizing the vacancies publicly. These are the greatest places to look for work.

Getting a strategy to put yourself in a position to compete for positions might help you get a jump start on finding the ideal employment quickly. If you are not a corporate employee, this may be tough. Despite this, it is still possible. Make it a practice to speak with long-serving workers of such firms; you might be surprised to learn that they are aware of forthcoming hiring opportunities.

Allow the employer to locate you.
Because of the extensive usage of the internet by businesses, it's likely that they're looking for staff online. Recruiting is usually done among senior workers in managerial roles by firms or employers. This isn't always the case, though. They occasionally look for fresh staff who can complete the job online. If you have your CV on the internet, the employer's search parameters may lead him or her to it. If your CV is excellent, there's a good chance you'll be invited for an interview. Because he will have ready access to your information, this will save him time. It will spare you the time and effort of having to look for work as a job seeker.

Choose the appropriate business.
People have great expectations when they join the employment market. Most people searching for work in Nigeria would tell you that they desire a high-paying job in a high-ranking position. To acquire a job like this, you'll have to work for a small firm that doesn't provide much in the way of job security or advancement. In order to be successful in your job search in Nigeria, you must be astute. Look for a large, well-established company that can provide you the highest job security and a clear development path. Send your applications to these companies with confidence. As a result of their size, major corporations have more job openings, and you may be able to locate one.

Make a network.
It's a popular adage in Africa that you need to "know people who know people" to succeed in anything. You need to "know people who know people" in Nigeria to have a successful job hunt. Simply put, you must network with individuals who are in a position to assist you in furthering your professional chances. Even if you lack social skills, you may network by keeping your ears open and asking questions about what is going on around you. With the rise of social media, networking has become even easier and more widespread. Indeed, you can have pals from all throughout Nigeria who can function as your eyes and ears if an employment opportunity presents itself.

Getting jobs offline is not as easy as getting Jobs ONLINE.
Reason i keep saying Online / Remote Job is Bae.

If you have access to internet + browsing gadgets and you ain't earning a dime via your internet activities then you are not wise because there are thousands of ease2access earning ways on the internet space.
Reach out to the facebook ID on my profile if you want to monetize your internet activities.
If you don't have a skill or service you know and can render online then for a token you'll be exposed to a trick you can monetize with for a daily earning of @least #2k which you can improve on after mastery and earn far more.

Proactivity Leads To Productivity

We should rather not job hunt but create a product or service and introduce to the market, then strategically look for customers. It's called ENTREPRENEURSHIP. That is how an economy grows.
There are many graduates looking for jobs instead of looking around them and starting something no matter how small.

Anyone can scribble anything and post but forgetting the unemployment level is far much higher than the existing jobs. So employers use all strategies to eliminate people irrespective of their skills level or how good they may be, but honor the list sent in by their " Political masters and lords ". Bottom line, jobs creation is a primary duty of the government, Private sector plays a subsidiary role, not principal role as being made to believe in this clime.
