Hi! U can't choose where to be born. You need to start from somewhere. I was in your shoes. I was among the best three in my department with strong 2:1 and since no connection, I went straight to schools to apply immediately after NYSC. 25k was my salary and while managing it, I was applying until one clicked in about a year into teaching.

When I started working in the new place, I discovered that the big salary was not even enough to solve issues, I had to plan for business since remaining on the job does not guarantee increase.

Today, I earn much bigger than I expected from the business. The economy is even good for business because as prices are going up, you also increase your own. The only disadvantage is for the salary earners whose buying power continues to go down. What they could buy before, they can't buy today.
In fact, any salary earners without plan of establishing will remain poor.

So, first find something no matter how little.

Secondly, do not have the opinion that u must practice what u studied.

Start from somewhere.

It still baffles me that a full grown adult will graduate from school and still have the guts to call him or herself jobless. It's a disgrace.

Nigeria puts most people on disadvantage but you were sent to school to clearly use your brain and not function in the system. Truth is most of you can't even write a CV nor a letterhead.

You are a human for God sake, leave the comfort of your house and go and learn an apprentice work and start something from there. Imagine two years of wasted time. What kind of laziness is that.

Mr man or woman be useful to yourself and everyone around. Am not going to preach you'll soon find a job to make you feel better that's non.sense.

Get up your damn axx and get something doing. Learn some digital work and find job in Upwork or Fiverr. Please be useful to yourself and stop this pathetic pitiful mentality thats creepy.

Life doesn't feed us rose it gives us thorns and thisles and we discover the rose in it.

Don't even think of doing yahoo or yahoo plus it's an avenue for lazy folks.

In between you didn't even tell us what you studied in school and what you're doing presently to prove to you your mind is lazy.
forget about him maybe he studied a useless course like i did. im still jobless and not looking for any job because i know what i studied is useless. i forgot about the years i wasted in school. i dont even know where my certificate is now, im just busy doing my construction site labour work

Sit down there and still be looking for jobs with your so call 2:1.


I graduated with 2:1 even with certifications in Oracle, but when I look tire for jobs and I no see. I kukuma started exporting charcoal, and my stories has changed ever since then. Thank God I never got those jobs then , maybe frustration wouldn't have pushed me into the charcoal business.

Why do you think we are saying everyone should leave? Most of your mates have done GRE and GMATs to get financial aids so they can continue abroad. You are here lamenting. You better join the wagon. Or you learn programming before it is late. Or go to farm.

You start your post by saying you graduated with a 2:1, this shows you don't understand the job market. A 2:1 means nothing to an employer. Employers have seen enough 2:1 holders with their head up in their ass
First what did you study. A first class in religious education would limit your chances of getting any job.
2. Where do you stay. If you went back to your village after school, you won't have as much opportunities than if you where in a city like lagos.
4. Do you look down on low paying jobs. Any job adds to your knowledge, experience and character. Be ready to take any job even if it's one Unbefitting of a 2.1 graduate like you.
3. What have you been doing since you graduated. You can learn a new language, skill or training.
I studied engineering, at a point after school, I went to learn truck repairs under some mechanics
You can imagine how that blew up my cv, I got employed on my very next interview.
4. Are you current with trends? What industris are growing. What skills would you need to fit into those industries.
5. Do you have a profile on linkedIn?
6. Have you tried online jobs
So stop complaining until you have done all you should.
On a personal note, I looked at your profile to find out your interest on nairaland and I was not surprised to find that all you do was religious related. I also love religion but for now, deal more mith science and technology, education, vacancies, business. Leave religion until you get a job
One bottle for you. You said all I intended to say

You write as if you hate western education. Universities was never design to be a stopgap as you said. It was design to supply skilful people to various occupation. Can you hire a non graduate to design and construct a bridge? Absolutely No except you want the bridge to collapse.
Our problem as a country is lack of planning and population explosion. Think about it, the population of UK was less than 60 million in 1960 and it's 67 million in 2020. Population of Nigeria in 1960 was 45 millions and had increase to 206 million in 2020. We quadrupled our population in less than 80 years without planning for increase in population.
Our solution to our unemployment is government planning and stagnated population

















I am not against University degree. I just believe majority of the degrees they are peddling are totally useless and worthless.

If you are not studying STEM then you have no business in a University.

And when you even contemplate the fact that Nigerian Universities are shit-tier with the best rated Nigerian university at 2,000th position globally you begin to understand that its all a pure utter waste of time.

The Institution awarding you the degree is not even considered a university by many western Universities to the point that they do not recognize degrees awarded by majority of Nigerian universities.

What kind of jobs have u been applying for?
We must not all work in offices and knot tie.
After nysc, I immediately picked up secondary sch teaching job, 40k. Money I made from nysc I used in picking up msc form. I was teaching in secondary, doing msc and ofcourse missing classes, but was also making money doing lessons for students. All the while I kept applying for jobs.
I wrote recruitment test for FBN, spdc, mtn, vmobile, stanbic ibtc, standard chartered Bank and union Bank. It was when I started writing my thesis that Union Bank clicked for me. 1 year inside union Bank, msc done and dusted. Immediately I picked up PhD forms. Years down the line I'm a PhD holder.
Morale? Get busy.
Applying for jobs is not an excuse to be idle. Schools just resumed, send your CV to schools you'll be surprised. I advised someone on this, she got two offers. One sch paying 35k and another paying 50k. She took the 50k. Weeks later, she told me that teachers make cash from lesson in the sch, lesson there is 20k per month, gather 3 students do lesson for them and you are paying yourself.

Funny enough you studied Chemistry and education I think, wtf are u looking for with a safety certificate when your line is education and you can use that as a spring board? Except you really don't know Chemistry well, do you know how many parents will pay for lessons for their science kids to study Chemistry and physics? Dude,....
Mahn! I love this!

Look at it like this, assuming you don't have a degree, what would you do?

When you can answer that question then you won't blame the country for being jobless.

Why won't there be unemployment in Nigeria when many youths are thinking of getting job than creating one, if those jobs they're running after are not established by some individuals, what will they be graduating for?


Time to go back to drawing book and redesigned our steps. Imagine that you've 2m create a business one or two people will get a job but no you want to impressed, drive Ferrari, impress ya gf and still force yourself to be an employee to build another man's wealth



the govt had their blames and the citizens has theirs, for the good 2years if you're managing in a place with small strict savings, you would have become an entrepreneur or a retailer



the first thing I did when I search for job for three months after service was learning how to drive which I used to work for private individual and do taxi for myself. many of our youths are just wasting their time, all these poor old people you see today are not lazy, they're poor because they were managing their challenges instead of tackling them


op wait OK job is coming

In any case, you guys seem to love this capitalist system we are running and you look down on social intervention by govt like N-Power and Trader Moni.

Please look for money to start a business
So trader money and npower is what you started your rice farm with? Tadermoni is N10K right?
