Do These Things Consistently if You Desperately Need Job in Nigeria

Things Necessary for Employment in Nigeria
In an earlier post on this blog, job hunt was likened to the scarcest commodity one can ever think of in Nigeria. Should in case you feel other things exist rivaling job opportunity in Nigeria, kindly drop that on the comment button.

However, the reality of job opportunity and its accessibility for all and sundry in Nigeria remains a breathtaking endeavour because several factors come to play in the course of securing one's dream job - after due process; application-test-interview-selection. Such factors obstructing efforts of efficient and viable graduates are Godfatherism, Favouritism/Nepotism, Low Ratio of Industry/Company to the Yearly Turnout of Tertiary Institution Graduates to mention but a few.
Against all odds, there lie significant chances for moving-up the social ladder (achieving one's dream) by carefully doing these important things consistently;
  1. Be prayerful
  2. Send your data (Curriculum Vitae) around
  3. Don't get tired of interviews
  4. Leave your comfort zones
  5. Stay active on the internet
  6. Have ready-made answers for likely interview questions (e.g. Why should you be granted employment?
  7. Read motivational books.
  8. Relate with your mentor every now and then.
  9. Acquire necessary skills; professional, vocational, technical.
  10. Stay updated on happenings around the globe. 
BE PRAYERFUL
Prayer has proven to be one of the paramount keys that can make the unexpected happen amidst one's inability or disadvantaged position. In this case, prayer is all you need to be gainfully employed because only the favoured few can be chosen in a multitude race. It is advised you stay optimistic and pray fervently to whatsoever you worship and believe for the actualization of your dream job.

CURRICULUM VITAE 
Trends today compel applicants to document their basic information (history; work, skills, referees) in soft manner or the printed copy. This document must be well-detailed because it reflects you informally before the recruiting agency or organisation deems it fit for a formal meeting. Learn about the recent styles for writing curriculum vitae from your friends/relatives and try to send it around when the need arises.

INTERVIEWS
Don't get tired of interviews today, because this is one of the basis for scrutinising applicants by organisations of today. Most organisations do not joke with this because they often believe there are some students who offer bribes "Cash and Kind" to get good grades in school. In order to determine applicant efficiency, an interview session/aptitude test is often set up to separate the goose from the gander.
Another crucial thing here is just for you to have ready-made answers for likely questions related to your job description e.g. Why do you think you deserve this job?, Do you have what it takes to move this organisation to a better position?. Be formal in your dressing to interview but if you have a fore knowledge of the dress code used in the desired company, that is cool.

COMFORT ZONES 
As popularly believed, comfort zones often make one feel relaxed and unworried about one's predicament. Due to this, it is advisable you leave your comfort zone and search for greener pasture where you have little or no attachment.

INTERNET
Monitor the trends on this platform because this is where most of the vacancies are posted today. In other words, familiarise yourself with the way the system works for submission of curriculum vitae and wait to proceed on subsequent processes.

MOTIVATIONAL BOOKS
Reading of motivational books should be a necessity for all and sundry particularly the students at a matured level - secondary and tertiary but the reality in this part of the World seems worrisome even when it relates to their school materials. These books are therefore necessary to stir your hope and keep you aroused for tomorrow without feeling dejected of the economic ups and downs. In short, the books will only make you see the good days ahead.

MENTOR
I want to believe you have someone you are looking up to at this moment but if you don't have, try source for someone that suits your philosophy and your dreams in life. You might be wondering why you may need a mentor in order to secure a job. Well, the answer is not far-fetched, you desperately need him/her to keep you on track in the middle of the whirlwind capable of swaying your attention and interest from your dream job.
