“My Humble Advice To Unemployed Ex-NYSC Members On Job Opportunities” –The Inspirational Parrot

First of all, let me welcome you to this platform where Legends are impacted with good trends. This is an advice, a humble advice, to all ex-members of National Youth Service Commission (NYSC) who are still unemployed after their one year of service to the nation, Nigeria.


You may not have met, seen, or
known me before, and this may be your first time of visiting this blog. I will
try my best to be direct and brief in this piece of advice I have for all
ex-members of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) who are still unemployed up
till now.
It is substantial to let you
know that I am one of the people who would be happy if NYSC would be scrapped
if it can’t be improved or made better. At times, I wished the period for NYSC
programme would be reduced to three months or at most six months.
NYSC should either be improved
both in terms of the payment and the facilities made available for the serving
corps members. Doing so will change the forged meaning of NYSC from “Now Your Suffering Continues” to “Now Your Success Continues”.
As I have mentioned so many
times in above paragraphs; this advice is for you if you are still unemployed
after your one year of serving Nigeria. This advice is not for those  ex-Corps members who are gainfully employed
at the moment.
NYSC is not a job, it is just a
programme (for a period of one year); but if you had played your roles very
well, you would have gotten connections that may land you a job of your dream.
One year is a whole lot of time
to meet new people, make new friends and increase your chances of getting
connection to highly placed persons in the society.
Okay, now that you have passed
out of NYSC programme successfully, or rather put, you have finished serving
your country Nigeria. The hustle should have continued immediately after the
service.
I am sure that some persons had
already gotten jobs before their graduation. Am I saying before their graduation?
In fact, even before their admission into tertiary institutions. This set of
people only needs to go the tertiary institutions, get a certificate and then
grab the jobs that have been kept for them.
I have been wondering what most
graduates spent their times doing on campus. Just reading their books, I guess?
If you fall among those graduates that passed through the higher institution
only reading your books and never thought of acquiring other skills, then you
have yourself to be blamed partly when you are finding it difficult to secure a
job.
I had dropped a post for
undergraduates on the need for them to acquire skills while on campus: “My Humble Advice To All Undergraduate Students On The Need For Skill Acquisitions While In School”
Most of you (the freshest
ex-Corps Members) are busy celebrating your passing out, but please do not be
carried away by the euphoria of the celebration.
I am not condemning the celebration;
it is worth celebrating because it is really not an easy journey to be embarked
on for a year. Many lost their lives in the course, but you scaled through: I
really thank God for your life.
For the latest ex-Corps
members; I am advising you now, do not go back home and sit down waiting and
praying for that big-paying job to come your way. Secure any good job you see
around.
Even if it is not going to be
paying you much initially, just get the job so long it can be able to provide
for you the little you can be using to take care of yourself for as you search
for better one. Get the experience, okay; and as you are doing the job with
diligence and dedication, be looking for a better one.
You may not even know, you may
even get connected to your dream job while doing that job which may not be
paying you very well at the moment. It all depends on your attitudes while at
work and your luck or what destiny holds for you.
In addition; I am advising
every of the freshest ex-Corps members to go out there and acquire one skill or
the other. There are lots of skills for graduates and even undergraduates (You
can check them out in this post).
Instead of you to stay back at
home doing nothing and some persons would be feeling big, maybe as graduates who
have finished their service. It is better for you to acquire one skill
depending on the one you have interest in. Feel free to CONTACT US in case you need ourassistance and advice.
Get something doing as you seek
for better job or rather a job that will be paying you more. Do not stay idle
answering graduates. One of the skills you may even opt in to acquire may be
what will even get you to the peak of your success.
For those ex-Corps members who
finished serving about two or more years back and are still unemployed up till
this moment. I wonder what you were doing after service.
It pains me to see someone
saying he/she is a graduate and has been unemployed for good five years or
more. For goodness sake, being a graduate does not mean that you cannot explore
another aspect/area of human endeavours different from what you have studied in
higher institution.
Being employed is not only when
you read Banking and Finance; then you graduated, gone for your one-year
service programme, you applied for a job. After that, you wore a suit, stepped
into an office (maybe a bank) for an interview. Then you got accepted for the
job.
Employment opportunity does not
mean that you will go to an interview and someone will accept you to work for
him or her. You can be the one to employ yourself, not must it would someone
else that have to employ you.
I do not love calling it
employment opportunity; I prefer using JOB opportunity. When it seems that you
can secure a job from someone else; try to provide a job for yourself by
enrolling into one skill acquisition programme or another.
You are a graduate, you are
literate, and you are expected to have sharp thoughts. So, why not sit down and
think of something you can do to be getting money. Then you can think of
improving the thing as time goes.
It sounds unwise hearing that
someone graduated many years ago and till this moment he/she has not got
something doing.
Generally, I am calling on all
unemployed ex-Corps members to humble themselves. Yes, you need to humble
yourself. As a graduate who is seeking for employment or job, you need to be
humble and as well avoid being idle.
Apart from your certificate,
you need to add other skills to improve your CV so as to increase your chances
of securing your dream job. Remember that there are other graduates applying
for the same job you may have applied for.
Remember that our world today
is now digitalized; so I advise you opt in for the acquisition of one skill or
more on ICT and other related areas.
I am going to stop here for
now; I think that I have said enough. I will still drop more advice later for
unemployed ex-Corps members concerning job opportunities.
Feel free to drop your
questions in the comment section; and please endeavour to share this piece of
advice with others.
