Education / How To Start Graduate School Application by jukekeocha: 12:24am On Sep 29, 2020
You decided to apply to grad school; now what? Knowing how/where to start was the hardest thing for me. The process varies for each person; for me, I started by making a list.

Figure out what you want in your grad program, so you know how to begin deciding where to apply. You don’t need to have a plan for the rest of your life/career, but deciding which programs to apply to is VERY daunting, so it helps to break it up. 

Where do you want to study? Geography matters more than you might think it does. Grad school is going to be stressful, so the least you can do is be in a location you enjoy. Coast vs. inland, big city vs. small city vs. rural, and cost-of-living, etc. are all things to consider. 

Now you can start looking at programs in those areas. You might already have a.........................................

Education / How To Save Cost In Graduate School Application by jukekeocha: 11:53pm On Sep 02, 2020
We all know that most schools will ask you to pay for Application fee ranging from $60-$120, and you may be confused about which school to apply to, having sent various emails and received various replies. Now, this is the time to be smart so as not to waste a lot of money in paying for Application fee.

The kind of replies you get will determine exactly which school to apply to.

These are some ideas:

1. Check the Application page of the school to be sure if they waive application fee or not. If it's not clear, please send email to the Graduate co-ordinator.

2. If you get a reply asking you to apply and then get back to the proposed supervisor after admission, make sure you ask about funding options so as to be clear. Some professors do not explicitly state this in their reply. You need to ask so as not to 'waste' your money.

3. Some will tell you to get back at a particular date. Make sure you..............................................................................

Jobs/Vacancies / Types Of Interview And Tips On How To Handle Them by jukekeocha: 12:10pm On Aug 07, 2020
Here are 'Types of Interviews' you might come across and tips on how to handle them. The Do's and Don'ts.

Understand every organization is unique. Each will interview based on their budget, time and organization culture. I'd touch a few of the interview types that are common. You are welcome to share any experience you have.

1. Panel Interview
Some organization do not have the time to conduct traditional 'hierarchical' interviews where you meet with HR first, then Hiring Manager, then Head of Department. Ain't nobody got time for that.

Panel straight.

I call this interview type, 'We Die Here'!

Do's:

- Make sure to remember their names & address them accordingly when answering questions. This goes a long way.

- Look the person asking question 'koro-koro' in the eyes. Also, maintain eye contact with others as well.

Don't:

- Don't use bass tone for one person then use soprano for the other. Maintain the same energy for every body.

- If you know you are not good with names then don't try to address them by their names. You don't want to be calling Yemi by Remi.

2. Phone Interview

Jobs/Vacancies / 6 Tips On How To Prepare For A Virtual Interview And Ace Them by jukekeocha: 10:27am On Jul 16, 2020
I’ve come to understand that some people handle virtual interviews like they are casual chats. They’re not. You need to take them as seriously as you do the physical ones.

In this article, I’ll share 6 tips on how to prepare for and ace them!

1. Dress Up!
You may not be on video call throughout the interview, but at the start, they will need to put a face to the name & voice. Put yourself together and sit where lighting is decent.

2. Get Your Internet And Electricity In Order
“Network is poor in my area” is really lazy excuse. Go somewhere where internet connectivity is decent and if power outage will interrupt your call, consider using your generator whether or not there’s power from the power holding company.

3. Prepare

Crime / How To Write A Police Statement Upon Arrest by jukekeocha: 10:17am On Jul 16, 2020
Ever wondered why some Police officers often try to convince suspects to write a statement after which they come up with bogus amount to secure bail or threaten to go to court?

Well, the suspect may have just incriminated him/herself. There have been cases where a suspect wrote something contrary to what actually transpired perhaps under duress, and proving otherwise posed a huge challenge.

While it is not in doubt that many statements made at Police stations were done under coercion, it is not an easy task for a lawyer to prove this and convince the Court, not to rely on such statements, or attach any weight to it.

Having this in mind, it is pertinent that a suspect takes due care in writing a statement. It is equally advisable to insist on the right to have an Attorney or a Lawyer of choice, available before making any statement.

Section 35 (2) of the Nigerian Constitution as Amended provides for the right of an accused person(suspect) to a Lawyer and section 17 (3) of the Rivers State Administration of Criminal Justice Law provides for the statement to be taken in the presence of a lawyer.

Thus, not only does...........................................................................................................................

Education / Step By Step Process Of Applying And Studying In Germany by jukekeocha: 12:42am On Jul 02, 2020
Stepwise process of applying and studying in Germany.
Here are the topics I will cover:
A.) Admission requirements
B.) Applying to the University
C.) Visa application
D.) Possible scholarships in Germany

A.) Admission Requirements
You can search for your desired course of study in the DAAD database. This database provides you with the important admission requirements for each program.
INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMMES IN GERMANY 2019/2020

Some courses are not indexed in the DAAD database. So you can do a further search in Google in case you dont find your course of interest in the database. e.g. Type the keywords: "Agronomy Master English Germany"

Generally Most Universities in Germany are tuition free except Universities in the state of Baden Wurttemberg who introduced a small tuition fee of about 1500 euros in 2017.

Some Universities which now require tuition fees are:
•Universität Freiburg
•Universität Stuttgart
•Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg

Investment / 3 Bad Trading Psychology You Should Stay Away From by jukekeocha: 6:48pm On Jun 29, 2020
In this article i will be taking you on some common and mostly uncommon trading psychology barriers that lead you to losing money.

1. Greed
This big guy is the most common form of bad trading psychology given that most people jump into the FOREX MARKET and expect to turn $10 to $100k under a week its no surprise. Greed makes you over leverage and use lot sizes that are bigger than your account and at the end you blow your first account due to greed. Greed makes you take trades that aren't there

How do you defeat greed? Easy

- Have an abundance mindset
$5.1 trillion exchange hands in the market everyday. There are thousands of opportunities what this means is, that there are endless opportunities for you to make money by following the market you don't have to die on that 1 trade. You can make 500$ and above on one good trade (depending on your lot sizing in relation to your account size) there is no need to rush it.

Investment / How To Buy A Marginal Field In Nigeria by jukekeocha: 6:10pm On Jun 29, 2020
So you want to buy a marginal field in Nigeria? Heck, who doesn't want to, right now? Ok, I get it. I got you covered. Let's do a burlesque style thread about the whole process, shall we?

Congrats on your decision. Like one million other people who have also just made this decision, you are on the road to hardship, sleepless nights and potential disappointment but you might make a few millions so congrats again.

Nigerian govt couldn't have chosen a better time. Oil is in the $30s, PIB is not passed, US no longer needs our oil, China is yet to recover, OPEC has cut output, bank loans to O&G sector are in trouble. History will likely say 'it was the best of times and the worst of times'

But they have no choice really, its a revenue drive. There are probably about 60+ fields that are available and even if all you get is $5m as signature bonus, then a share of the cut on the field valuation, FG could book some real good millions, not so sure about billions

What Are Marginal Fields?
Well you could say they are used fields (okrika fields) but that won't be fair to the ones which just never got developed because the IOC that owned them just never got to developing them. So let's give a serious definition, shall we? (deep breath)

A marginal field is a small field with reserves undeveloped that has been relinquished by an IOC or deemed commercially unprofitable for the IOC but not for a smaller producer. IOC - Intl Oil Company - Shell, Total, Agip, Chevron, Exxon, etc. So a gateway into the big leagues!!

Jobs/Vacancies / What You Should Know About Building Wealth by jukekeocha: 5:56pm On Jun 29, 2020
To build real wealth, you need to do 5 things:
- Make a lot of money
- Spend less than you make = save
- Invest what you save
- Compound your investments
- Protect your wealth

Every advice I have read from books, webinars, interviews with the wealthy boils down to these steps. These steps are not negotiable. Every advice you've ever heard revolves around these steps.

Make A Lot Of Money
Also important to note that Rich =/= Wealthy. This is why it is so difficult to point to a lot of inter-generational wealth in Nigeria. We confuse riches for wealth. So we chase riches We think of wealth (a flow) as riches (a stock/quantity) so we try to stock up instead of creating channels.

Education / How To Guide Your Recommenders On Writing A Letter Of Recommendation by jukekeocha: 3:56pm On Jun 29, 2020
When applying to MS/PhD Programs in the USA, you need 2 - 3 Letters of Recommendation (LoR).

They are very critical to your admission and funding/scholarships decisions.

- What is a LoR
- Who should write it
- How to get a Professor or Manager to Write an EFFECTIVE LoR

The situation applicants face with letters of recommendations is not usually talked about as much as it should. People focus mainly on the GPAs, GRE/TOEFL or/and Statetement of Purpose. However, I am aware that these letters are very critical to whether you are admitted or not.

Also, I know that when you need those letters, people want to know who can write them an effective one. Others do not know who to even get these letters from. These are existential questions. Don’t fret, I will attempt to smoothen things out.

Keep reading. Let’s start with :

What A Letter Of Recommendation (LoR) Is
It is basically a letter that provides people, who have an established relationship to you, to tell the admission letter what they think of you. Hence, it should be detailed and expressive.

The rule of thumb is that a well written LoR should............................................................

Education / How To Go About Medical Studies In Germany by jukekeocha: 12:26am On Jun 23, 2020
Recently, I have received a lot of enquiries about medical studies in Germany. Here are some of my findings. I must preface here that most of the information I have been able to gather have been from 3rd-party sources and I will reference some of them here.

If you'd like to study (and practice) medicine in Germany, you most likely would need to learn German. I can easily think of 2 reasons why this is the case.

1. Most medical study programs are in German.

This makes sense as you are in Germany and most doctors practice here. The field is also one with a lot or regulations so it makes sense that you are educated in the original language of the regulations that you need to abide by in the course of exercising your duties as a professional.

Education / How To Conduct Research In Ms(master Of Science) Or A Phd Thesis-based Program by jukekeocha: 12:42pm On Jun 17, 2020
If you are applying for admission into a MS (Thesis-based) or/and a PhD program, you should (at least) be curious about “how you want to” or “how you will” conduct research.

Let me teach you something about how you can come across as a “prepared” prospective student.

In the research community, we have to showcase our work by creating manuscripts which end up getting accepted and published by journals. In doing this, we cite other researchers’ publications when writing ours.

As a matter-of-fact, we have to find out what others have done before we identify a gap which we can now “explore”. This whole process is what we call “Literature Review”.

In searching for this papers, we employ a mix of techniques. There are search tools that allow us pour through publications using keywords.



E.g, Scopus, Web of Science, Mendeley Support, Google scholar etc.

In “playing with” these tools, you can ........................................................................................................................

Education / How To Prepare For Ms/phd Programs Interview In USA by jukekeocha: 11:41pm On Jun 16, 2020
Have you applied for admission into MS/PhD programs in the USA? Have you been invited to an interview with a Professor (potential advisor) or a panel of faculty?

- Your admission and scholarship search is on the line.

This morning, I will teach you how to prepare �

Let me re-state:

The following must apply to you:

1. You have submitted your application for MS/PhD admission.

2. You have been contacted for an interview with either a Professor or a panel of faculty members.

3. You are currently preparing for the interview.

Good? �

First, you need to remember everything you wrote in your Statement of Purpose by “heart”. You will certainly be asked to introduce yourself.

Bear in mind that the interviewer(s) already have all your details so they are basically trying to confirm if you are a right fit and ensure that your research interests are properly aligned with that of the department or proposed advisor. If they are considering you for a Teaching or/and Research Assistant, they want to gauge your readiness. This is a fairly normal process.

Here are some tips:

1. Gather Information About The Upcoming Interview
Ask the staff scheduling the interview who is expected to interview. It is a harmless question and as such, the committee or staff will be happy to tell you who and how many people you will be talking to. This will be helpful.

2. Read All Your Application Materials

Yes, you have been given a Job Description (JD) which has been your bible. It's been your only guide? That's great, but abiding solely by it won't change anything.

You need to:

-Be solution oriented on every task around you.

2. Level Up Your Qualification
When you got your job, you had a degree. But afterwards you've relaxed. That is another reason you aren't gathering momentum.

It’s that Simple.

Now how do you make sure that you get enough people to buy from you or patronise your services? How do you even stand out in the market place?



Because some of your Competitors are not Sleeping. And doing everything make sure they have your Customers for themselves. But there’s a Hack.

I’m sure you would agree with me that this major factor highly influences buying decision. There are people who put this first before buying anything. If the price doesn’t suit them, then they won’t Buy. It just how it is.

They are after who offers the cheapest price, they are looking for the better deal. That’s all they care about. So if you are the “cheapest” in your Marketplace, if you have the better deal than your competitors then you will be patronised by these guys.

However, one problem; The problem with this is that if you go into a Price war that is - If you Try to compete with the lowest price, your Business will not last long. Infact, you will quickly go out of business because the Big guns in that niche who can throw a lot of money around have enough to Win that war. Infact someone can just come in tomorrow and say chose to sell cheaper than you, the next day another person can come over and do the same.

Before you know it, you’re already the most expensive in the market with your “cheap offer”

Funny right?

So don’t think that you will collect all the customers from your competitors if you make yourself the cheapest in the market. Don’t make that Mistake. Now what do you do?

I will give you a secret if you read on Instead of being cheap, now justify the value of your price, increase the price, add an extra freebie or bonus.

Eg: If the average price your competitors sell a shoe is N15,000, instead of taking yours down to 10,000 to get more customers, at the expense of your Pocket..



And your Business.. Take up the price to N20,000. Relax, don’t be scared. You know what you’re doing. Use 2k to Get a Shoe Polish, a shoe brush, a quality socks. Use 1k for delivery. That’s 3k

Now tell your client that they will get a FREE Shoe Polish, shoe brush and quality socks when they buy from you.

That’s not all. You will deliver it to their location for FREE.

You see what you’ve done?

You’ve distinguished yourself from your competition and ramped up the value of your Service. People like FREE things, they will come trooping in when they see this offer.

And oh! You’ve also gained an extra 2K Profit.

You can apply this to any product or service that you offer. You get this ?

Okay, let’s go to the Next Point for today…
