To start with, its better you get to know the ground you are into before trying to pave the way for yourself. Nigeria is a very tricky country to be in. There exist a tale back then in 2016 that out of some 13,000 applications received by Dangote group of companies for graduates executive truck drivers , there were 6 PhD. holders, 704 MSC and over 8,460 BSc holders, even though the company only needed 100 drivers.
According to the federal ministry of labor and productivity, more than 41% of Nigerian graduates are without employment. The Bureau for Statistics added that over 50% of youths in Nigeria are jobless, while the world bank puts the figure at 56% considering the country’s estimated population of about 167 million and 60 million jobless.
The facts above should make you think of various questions like:
★ What skill set do i possess?
★ What am i passionate about?
★ How can I rekindle my talents?
If you haven't had a thought on any of these ideas, this period of your life should be the rightful time to bud these thoughts. You might be tempted about some big jobs waiting for your applications – there are almost no stray jobs in the country anymore. Jobs are either being piled aside for relatives and loved ones making post NYSC period seem disastrous.
Below are ways a weary corps memeber can use to manoeuvre their way through Nigeria. The include:
→ Go on a trip
This might look as an insane thing to do( how can one who should be searching for a work be going on a trip adventure).
Do you remember that place that you so wanted to go to but couldn’t go because you were in school?
You can decide to take a trip and see all the places you wanted to see when you were still in school. This can work out for you especially if you have familiar people in such locations who may be friends or family.
A change of scenery will not hurt
→ Go After Your Passion
You have than one passionate thing you like doing much. It’s time to go after that thing you are passionate about. Your passion is what you love doing effortlessly. Your passion could be something of a talent. So start investing your time and energy on the things you are passionate about, and you will be amazed by the turn around you will experience.
→ Make Plans and schedules
You should have a plan of what to do, to be sure to get ready to start life after NYSC. Your plan could be to further your education by getting MSc (Masters) in the field of your choice or to get married after service year. The major thing is just to have a plan.
→ Have a further education
You can decide to further your education by getting MSC (Masters) in the field of your choice. This will give an edge over you mates who are still mostly with their basic bachelor's degree.
→ Get married
Getting married might look comical to the males but might just be what the females need to get their life's kick started. Rather than flirting around, its better you get married. Its creates security and eases financial burden for the lady.
→ Take up an internship
Its always a good idea to render oneself as an intern in your particular field of endeavour after NYSC.
This increases your employability later on as it becomes a core part o
67uf your work experience. Companies are usually very accommodating to have interns who want to learn on the job.
→ Take Advantage of Job Opportunities
Search for opportunities, do not fold your arms. Try and connect with as many people as possible. Give out your CV to those people you know could help you.
In distributing your CV, its better not to underestimate any body. Let them know what you studied and what you know how to do.
→ Become self-employed
Creative minded individuals can start and SME after NYSC. You don't have to call anyone boss as you are your own boss - you take your own decision.
Self-employment works especially when the individual in question demonstrates the required entrepreneurial skills.
This can also help as the Nigerian economy is largely dependent on what you can do for yourself and not what others can do for you via employment.
What to do next after NYSC should not be an issue for corp members, as success after school depends on how you planned for it plus the way you work towards it.
Haven read the various ideas that one can effect after the compulsory primary function, set out a plan to follow and definitely you will succeed. Remember to start where you are, use what you have and do what you can do!
