5 fastest ways to get a job in Nigeria
Below are the fastest ways to get job in Nigeria;
1. Offer to work for free
How does this sound? Strange, right? But it’s one of the fastest ways to get a job in Nigeria. Nigerians like free things, and you can use that as a trick to get employers. This has landed many to their dreamed jobs. So, if you know of any company you need a job, submit your curriculum vitae (CV) and cover letter to the HR through their receptionist. Stating clearly on your cover letter that you want to work for free in their company, to gain only work experience.
After some days, if they don’t invite you, go to the company to meet the person in charge of the job, maybe the Human Resource Manager (HRM), and express your willingness to work for free in their company. If they accept you to work for free, you will probably end up being paid like other staff in the company.
But even if they don’t pay you at last, at least you would gain work experience that will catapult you to a higher paid job.
Tip: If the company takes you to work for free, try as much to work hard more than their paid employees. Your hard work would make them find you useful, which would result to paid employment. I know a friend who tried it, and he is now working with the company as a full-time staff and he is being paid regularly like other staff in the company.
2. Use Church cover
Belonging to a church can help you get a fast job in Nigeria as many churches now preach prosperities. Join any top church around you and use their testimony time to get job connection. During the testimony time, testify about how God blessed you with good health despite being jobless for several years. You would be amazed how big men in the church will help find a job for you. Another way is to meet the pastor, and tell him that you need a job, I’m sure he would connect you to the right members in the church that can help.
3. Join Church Department
Once you join a church, find a department to join as well. There are usually different departments in a church. They will appreciate your hard work and will like to know you more. Make sure you tell them all the truth about yourself. If you don’t eat, tell them you hardly eat, there is no need to sugar coat your situation. They will help you if they can.
4. Meet Job Agents
This is one the fastest ways to get a job in Nigeria with little stress. There are job agents everywhere and they are likely around you.The only difference between you and those guys are the fact that they possess powerful networks to different jobs.
They know a lot of firms and employers. Most of the times they are the ones recruiting for the firms. You will pay job agents if they help you get a job depending on the agreement. Discover job agents around you, meet and negotiate with them instead of submitting CV online and offline.
5. Advertise yourself
Drop the shame and do what is needed. You can get a cardboard sheet, then write that you need a job, add your contact and qualifications. Then paste it in strategic places in the street. Another way is to use social media. I have seen people advertising their qualifications on Facebook, Nairaland and other social platforms. And it worked for them.
