HOW TO SURVIVE YOUR JOB HUNT

Waking up daily to comb job hunting websites and not getting the job can be frustrating. You pray that the next application you submit will bring results, but nothing.
It’s hard. Harder, if you have friends and you are the only one left that is not waking up at 7 preparing for work. You want to stay away. You feel left out.
You religiously read the job hunting strategies you heard your friend used to land her dream job. You read the job hunting tips often in the hope that you will escape the unemployment in Nigeria. But, what happens when the dream jobs aren’t coming? Frustration?

No. you can survive this stage. ‘Survive,’ even, is not the precise word. The right expression is that you can stay positive and not feel frustrated.
This is what you should do:

Get a Hobby

What you want is a job. I get it. But a hobby will put your mind at work that you don’t dwell on what you are missing. Instead of combing and sleeping over job hunting websites, get entangled with something you love doing.

Do you love writing or drawing as a hobby? Perhaps while you are young you used to sing, but as you grow you lost the talent for what you think will pay the bills. How about getting back to that and feel alive again?

Meet New People

Don’t curl up in your room and shut the door against the world because you are tired of ‘We are not recruiting’ or ‘we will get back to you.’ Live must continue. Isolation is a member of the depression family. So stay with people, like minds, positive people.
Meet new people and let them know your problem. You are searching for a job. Don’t be ashamed to tell what have been giving you headaches and sleepless nights. But don’t go about singing it like it is a mantra.
People have the problem of theirs, only speak of your job search when the opportunity presents itself. For example when the conversation gets to ‘and what do you do?’ you know it’s time.

Always be ready

Keep a copy of your CV on your mobile phone or laptop. Dress well always. You can’t tell when you are running into an opportunity. And remember the old saying that appearance matters.
So be always ready and prepared. Especially when you meet new people and they ask you what you do. You are searching for a job. When they ask you what you study and what it means to be a sociologist, for instance, you do something better than explaining like a layman.

Get the basic right or practice it

Do you know how to speak in public? Can you keep a conversation flowing without stuttering? Time to practice if your answer is no.
You can get this right before you are forced to get it right when the job or interview comes. So you can practice by:
Volunteering
Reading books
Watching videos

Some other things you might want to get right are:

A good Cover Letter
A good CV
Body posture during interview

Be positive

Look around you; you are not alone in this. You will see people with better grades searching for jobs. It’s not the end of the world that you are not employed.

Keep the faith

You too will get the job, not because you are tired and frustrated, but because you are not giving up on everything. Read about famous and successful people you will realize they went through worse. The only weapon you can wade now is keeping your head up.

Start a Business

Start a small business with minimal investment and stay busy while you wait for your dream job. Your small business may become a big business and you become an employer instead of an employee.

Happy searching.

Becoming a Better Employee

Becoming a Better Employee

You have seen it. Or you haven’t. But you have heard it. Some job seekers are employed from the comfort of their homes or without rigorous interview others pass through. Or a staff gets promoted, is recommended for certain task while others are there, just there. Why?

Many reasons apply. It seems in-built, natural, but still there are noticeable traits that set such special employee apart. Know that, if you too have the same trait mentioned here, it means you have the potential to become the type of employee that has five job offers when others are begging for one. You can become the type that is recognized every month of a year when others are sitting in the same office for centuries.

Unemployment in Nigeria isn’t a joke. You have to stand out. To stand out, you need:

  • Where else should you turn your attention?
  • What can you do now?
  • What skills are required?

Those are the things we want to call your attention. Are just getting job after university, or you are employed? This is for you. The ones we mentioned here are subtle and mostly neglected. Many believed in having the skills. But hey, you need some personality to match it.

Qualities of a Good Employee

  1. Attentiveness

Read between the lines. When you are given a task to perform, do you miss a detail? If you forget details, you give your employer more jobs to do and prolonging the time to perform the task. The work will have to be done again and the mistake can be costly to time, money and lost of customers. Read between the lines. Good employees dissect all the details and even they add some they believe will help in the long run. Next time you perform a task, review it to comply with all, we mean ALL the details.

  1. Absolute Obedience

Read this and share it. Many will read and would not share, because no one will know or hold you or judge if you do share or not. Fine. This mentality should stop. Stop it in the work place or during your interview. Stop it to escape the unemployment in Nigeria. Employers aren’t stupid; they know who is obedient and who isn’t. These are points that accumulate and form your character and make you special. Obey the instruction to the last point. That will grow the trust your boss has in you.

  1. Goal Oriented

Not just for yourself. Create one for the company too or use the one the company created for itself. ‘I want to become the next manager of many company,’ is a fine goal. But by then, where will the company be? Have a goal for the company too and do all the things in your capacity to see it through.

  1. Going extra mile

Think friend. Think. What else can you do to make the work easier? What effort can you put as addition and bring the company’s goal closer. Do it. Do that. Do it with passion, with faith. It might not earn you extra money or the promotion now. But know that employers are watching you. They are really watching and keeping note, so stay on course. Put extra effort when you can and while you are there.

  1. Speak up

Don’t silence the voice inside of you. Is there a crime someone is committing and you feel it’s none of your business.  It’s indeed none of your business, but when it becomes the company’s business, it becomes your business too. Speak about it. Inform the management. You are saving your boss. Humans can appreciate their savior.

In conclusion

We didn’t mention some other skills, because we believe you have them. Or you know them. But to serve as a reminder, here are some you should have and develop if you haven’t:

  • Continuous Learning
  • Intelligence
  • Punctuality
  • Related skills require for your job

Strive to put those in place. They are necessary and not that hard. When they are incorporated, you are already worth dying for. If there is one more thing we will want you to remember, it is: love your job. Employer will vie for you, and your efforts will be rewarded.

Employer: Hire Young Graduates

Why you should give Young Graduates a Chance?

As an employer of labor, you would prefer experienced staff, the one that can kick the ground running. We don’t argue that. It is gratifying to get things running and as fast as possible. But you need to look at the flip side of things, the fresh graduate, and see points you have been missing. You need fresh graduates, just as you need experienced staffs. Here, you are going to read why.

Shall we start?

It is a universal truth that experienced graduates are skilled because of their experience. With the unemployment rate in Nigeria, more fresh graduate jobs are needed. With that in mind, many things are common to the fresh graduate that eludes the ones that have acquired the experienced.

Who are Fresh Graduates?

To avoid confusion, it’s imperative to specify what fresh graduates mean. Fresh graduates are just new to the workforce, devoid of experience and usually holding a first degree. As you read, put these in mind: experience comes with age and most fresh graduates are young (20-33).

Fresh graduates over experienced graduates

Agility

Call it ‘young blood.’ They are quicker with jobs. The young, fresh graduates tend to do things to impress. Because they are new to jobs, and are willing to stay (to gain the experience), they usually can go the extra-miles and would like to make an impression. They will put more efforts and will into their duties to cement their place in competitive world.

Now, where does that leave you as an employer of labor?

  • Better performance with or without expecting extra-benefits
  • More jobs executed
  • Time for other activities

 

Additionally, most are new graduates are young and have the body and the strength to go the extra mile. This can be vital in jobs that demand strength. Think about jobs like construction, mining, mineral exploration. You will reconsider young and fresh graduates.

Pay

Experience graduates might believe they have what deserves you should pay more —experience. Experienced employees are mostly changing jobs for more pay. Young graduates are willing and eager to earn that experience. They are more likely to accept lower pay than the experienced. Fresh graduates want experience and money. They will often accept less.

However, the story, for the fresh graduate, might change too, after they have earned the experience.

Working years

Most fresh graduates are young. This means the years they could work is longer than most experienced graduates. Therefore, if you are looking for employees that will stay longer, saving you the stress of recruiting another when Mr. Experienced retires, then young graduates is the best. As they are young and they would last longer, they will also bring freshness, young minds, inspiration, fresh skills, and agility to your company or business.

Leaders of tomorrow

Remember the adage: children of today are the leaders of tomorrow. In as much you are helping to reduce the number of fresh graduate unemployment out there, you are also helping your company. What will happen to your business when the experienced workers retire? What will become of your company? We know you can recruit new graduates later. Why not now, before those experienced men retire? This will allow young, fresh graduates to grow into company system faster. This will help you, because the irons of older workers would have sharpened the blunt new iron. Recruiting fresh graduates also means you are building a future for your company.
