Waiting to be done with NYSC before you begin to seriously apply for a job is one of the greatest mistakes you ever want to make. This is one mistake many of us make or are about to make. You may nearly slap yourself if you wait till then. In fact before you finish NYSC you should have applied for at least 20 jobs and attended at least 2 interviews, that’s the mindset of a serious job seeker. Except you have a job waiting for you somewhere &
If you made a 2:2 or third class, you are in a more competitive market and so you may need a super strategy to standout. This is because the job market is saturated and so one way many employers try to streamline the number of applicants is by stating that they need 2:1 or first class only.
This should not be a source of worry but should be a reason why you have to up your game. You need to go for additional training that are relevant (mark the word relevant), add some more skill, make your CV on point and all your applications superb! You can’t have a 2:2 and you are applying with different first class and 2:1 holders and you won’t do something different. You just have to stand out to improve your chances. Also you should apply in more places to increase your chances. I will tell us two real life stories. Are we following?
Have you heard of this man called Tony Elumelu? I heard a story about him. Tony Elumelu graduated with a 2:2. His first banking job. The requirement was a first class or 2:1. But he still applied. Tony Elumelu applied but added a cover note, explaining why he felt he was still qualified despite graduating with a 2:2. Guess what? He was hired!
I tell you the story of a friend of mine. The person is with a top multinational company right now. She made a 2:2, but contacted me before applying for the job. 👇👇👇👇👇👇 networkmarketing followforfollowback nigeria nysc interview vacancy lagosnigeria abuja technology Marketing networking Business Africa Leadership instagram Dubai job graduate career abujajobs lagosjob internship jobinnigeria employment recruitment nigerian jobsearch jobinterview jobshiring humanresourc
