As much as there are lots of stories of unemployment and graduates roaming the streets with no jobs, there are job openings here in Nigeria with urgent need of good and qualified hands to get to work. There are jobs, enough of them but the real problem isn’t with the jobs but with the people in search.
It would take some time to land the job you picture in your head but there won’t even be any hopes for you if you don’t know how to get it in the first place.
Here are 5 ways to get a good job in Nigeria
There are various reasons people think Education is overrated, one of it could just be laziness to go through school and get your certificate in the bag, other reasons might appear valid but none of it beats the single fact that more than just school, you need Education to get things right in the business world. Employers need to know that you are certified first before you get called up to prove yourself, get certified, train and be well grounded in an Industry you relate with. (not necessarily the University)
The next important thing you should do before being all about the quick money, is to get some hands-on experience on the job, intern with a company or start-up and get as much experience as you can, internship is a fool-proof way to grow in a field, do great works with the experience you get and stay prepared for your dream job.
While on Internship or Volunteering, be sure to deliver your job and be productive, strive to get the work done neatly, you need the productivity to win your future employers.
Have Other Skills
You don’t have to limit your hands to just one thing, it’s okay to be good at a particular and stick to it but additional creative skills always win, being able to take pictures is one good thing, being able to do mad editing is another big thing.
Keep A Track Record
One of reasons for doing the best you can when you are working as an Intern or growing in a Company is to have a good track record for your future employers, things that would boldly speak for you when you are face to face with your dream job.
Whatever you do, be sure to be prepared for what’s coming, make the best of your contacts and let as much worthy people know you are available for a better job.
