After passing out of NYSC, the average Nigerian youth enters a new chapter of life. The reality is that we live in a country where unemployment is rampant, unless you were fortunate enough to get a job while serving in the military or were retained by the company where you had your PPA, or you come from a wealthy family who can help you find work or establish a business, but if you do not fall into this category, you should read this post.
If you have successfully navigated this phase and are now in a secure financial position, we would appreciate hearing from you via comments in order to assist and guide others. Life is sometimes considered to begin after NYSC, and this may be true because once your NYSC is completed, you are unofficially inducted into the labor market.
The five things you should do right after NYSC are listed below.
1. Make a decision about your future income source.
This implies you should decide whether you want to start your own business or work for someone else. This decision must be made so that you may get a head start on the next step. You must offer yourself direction as to what you should do next.
Everyone has different potentials, and I’m sure by now you’ve identified yours, narrowed it down to a certain area, and made the decision to follow it wholeheartedly.
2. Reduce Your Excessive Lifestyle
This does not mean you should dress unkempt or unkempt, but you should strive to cut down on some unneeded extravagances, knowing full well that you are about to embark on a new period of your life. Do not outgrow your shadow; instead, do your best to live within your means, fully aware that things like school fees and feeding money may no longer be at your disposal, and you will be expected to begin paying some bills.
3. Create a comprehensive CV.
You’re preparing to show the world your talent, so you’ll need to write down your credentials in black and white. If you decide to work, you will be presenting them to companies. However, if you have decided to start a firm, now is the time to write a business template! You may simply start a business in today’s environment, where you can even start a business online without spending a lot of money.
4. Make Friends with People Who Are Already Successful
Birds of a feather flock together, and now is the time to mingle with successful individuals and learn from them. Don’t make the mistake of believing you’ve stopped studying; in reality, after your NYSC, you’ll begin a new learning process. To be successful, you must form a new circle of friends, making friends with people who will favorably affect your thinking and give value to your life.
5. Create a Relationship with a Purpose
Hey! You aren’t getting any younger, therefore it’s time to start thinking about starting a family. Frivolities should be a thing of the past; you don’t want to be in a relationship with no defined goal. Of course, at this age and stage in your life, you can’t afford to squander your time in a relationship that will most likely lead you nowhere. If you’re in one of these situations, it’s time to establish your goals, and if your spouse doesn’t follow suit, you should walk away. After passing out of NYSC, There is always a better individual; you don’t want to be emotionally sidetracked at this point in your life; you need all of your focus.
Most Nigerian teenagers become incredibly indolent after passing out of NYSC, believing that jobs will find them. This is tragic, and we hope that this post and your comments may inspire someone to get working and recognize that success comes to those who dare!
