Image
Today in Nigeria, marketing job seems to be the major option available for graduates, especially the ladies (regardless of their level of academic qualification; OND, NCE, BSc, MSc) due to job insecurity issues and the level of unemployment in Nigeria. Since the jobs available or the most accessible in a private organization remains marketing, participants experience lots of ups and downs. In this case, the positive end of marketing job in a capitalist world seems to be at an advantage for the employers at the expense of the employees who are challenged to work relentlessly week in week out to make ends meet.

Research has shown that marketing is one of the toughest job anyone can be engaged in today anywhere in the world. In simplicity, the task of marketing involves the marketer getting it right - knowing where and when his/her product or service is most needed.

Special thanks to the enduring spirit of Nigerian soldiers out there who continue to fight relentlessly under a breathtaking weather in Sambisa Forest (regardless of the death of their brothers in the struggle/fight for the nation's security). Sambisa forest as described in the Nigerian dailies is a forbidden place (at present), dangerous to ply one's trade due to the presence of the Boko Haramist. This forest can be likened to the Nigerian organizations today - private parastatals where reserve armies "casual workers" plies their trade.
