What Happens After NYSC
As the passing out parade (POP) for some corps members is fast approaching, the fears of those actually passing out is on the increase.
Many are scared as to what they may do or where they may go after the oil from the pot which is popularly called “allawee” runs dry.
As an ex corps member myself, I decided to share these few tips which will undoubtedly help you in your quest for success after the scheme is over.
What To Do After NYSC
1. Cultivate the habit of investment:
This is definitely not the time to consume whatever funds you have left of your total allowance. You may not be getting one anytime soon, so invest the little you have left, if any.
2. Apply for jobs:
Of course you already know that a job will not suddenly land on your palms from the sky. Not that I don’t believe in miracles though, but you and I know you have to apply for these jobs. So why squeeze your face or lazy around….about the idea. You want a job? Then apply. Simple. And even if you don’t get the job at your first or second attempt, re-apply. That’s the only way to actually get it.
3. Build a Network:
In Nigeria today, one of the fastest means to get a job today is by networking. A friend who knows someone that knows someone who has an Uncle who is the MD of a company and that could be where your help will come from. Networking is very important in your job hunt.
4. Further Studies:
If after completing your NYSC, you feel the need to further your studies and have sufficient funds to do so, then you should. Further studies could also be in terms of personal development. There are many free events that you could attend instead of remaining idle.
As a recent entrant into the Labour market, or Favour market as it’s widely called by most believers, it is expedient of you to ensure you do not remain stagnant. Always strive to become better than you were the previous day.
Learn something new, do something different….Take charge of your life.
