Nigeria is a country blessed with so many resources, and so many great people, yet things are hard. A majority of the youth are unemployed. To get a good job, you either have to be lucky, or you need to be connected (i.e know someone). So many youths these days are going into scam businesses, even graduates, because of the lack of jobs.
A lot of people also do not bother searching for job vacancies. The internet, unknown to them, is a great place for vacancy information.
Here are some steps on how to get a good job:
1. Search the internet wisely: If for example, you are a doctor searching for a job, don’t just type ‘Doctor’ or ‘Doctor Job’ in the search box. It would be wiser to search for something like ‘Doctor jobs in Nigeria’, ‘Doctor Jobs in Lagos’ ‘Oil and gas jobs in Lagos for June 2009’ etc. That way, your search would be limited to just the important sites.
2. Bookmark your job Vacancy websites: There are so many job vacancy websites in Nigeria now, and its usually difficult to keep up with them. To make this easier for you, bookmark those sites, so that once you are on the net, you just go straight to all your bookmarked sites, and check for updates and new Nigerian Vacancies.
3. Subscribe to their feeds: By subscribing to their feeds, the vacancies are delivered straight into your email box, making it easier for you, so all you have to do is go to your inbox, check for the ones you need, click on them, and apply.
4. Read the instructions for applying very well: A lot of applicants just browse through the job advertisements without even reading the instructions on how to apply. This reduces the chances of your actually getting the job or even being invited for an interview.
With all I have said above, I hope you would put all this into consideration when trying to search for your next job.
