Want A Job Really Bad? Here Are 4 Tips To Get One In 2 Months. by Nobody: 11:02am On Feb 07
Okay, I’m no Messiah but I feel within 2 months of discreet and relentless search, right about any graduate should be able to get a Job within 3 months, If that’s all you care about.

1. Lower your standard

I understand how we all nursed the idea of graduating and landing a Job that pays 1 million right from school. Well the sad truth is that those jobs do exist, they are just rarely offered to people that dream about them.
My point here is that if all you care about is getting a job, changing that unemployed status of your to Gainfully Employed, one of the things you should do is to lower your expectations.
I saw a pool on Twitter the other day by @OgbeniDipo, apparently, less than 50% of USA (2014 – 2016) Graduates earn more than #100,000. So you should have a rethink what opportunities you turn down or look away from.
Don’t accept the job of a cleaner, or a job you’re abused because you’re lowering your standard. Take a job you like doing and contributes to your development or aligns with your goals and future aspirations no matter how Cheap it seems.

2. Start Using Linkedin

Not go there and register and surf once in a while. Using linkedin to get a job starts with setting up a complete profile that reflects each and everything you have done in the past 7 years.
The Next thing to do after setting up your profile is to responsibly build up your connections. Don’t accept or send a connection invitation to every dick, john and harry. Be very selective and build your connection around your preferred industries and important personnels.
You are most likely to get a Feedback when you apply for a Job on Linkedin.
There are don’t on LinkedIn.
• Don’t go ahead and post “I’m Interested” on a post that already has a hundred or a thousand.
• Don’t use the Linkedin Job search, it has been sabotaged by greedy bloggers and traffic hungry job boards.

3. Edit your CV before every job application

Remember that one CV cannot suit all jobs. So be ready to edit your CV every time you want to apply for a Job. If you really want to know what recruiters think about your CV, ask a professional or experienced person in the industry. Accept the criticism and improve on it.
• DON’T NAME YOUR CV “CV” or “RESUME”. Let it be “FULL NAME CV”

4. Visit at least 3 Job boards at least two times daily

Extreme situations they say demands extreme measures. I will honestly advice job seekers to make use of not two but three job boards and visit each of these three at least 2 times daily. The reason is that you want to know what firms are recruiting and you want to be the first to apply.
There is really no point applying for a job after a week they started receiving CVs. The reality is that your CV/Application will most probably be lost in the crowd.

Jglad I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news but your CV is not a Hit, here are the long list of 10 Things I noticed.

1. You don't need 2 email address

2. You don't need 2 phone numbers

3. You don't need your Next of Kin on your CV

4. You don't need a 4 line paragraph describing your "Capabilities"

5. State of Birth, LGA, Nationality, Marital Status, Gender, Religion are not needed.

6. The section labeled "other information" should be "Leadership Experience"

7. Kindly introduce a bullet section for your "Skills"

8. Your Objective is very general and conventional. Change it to something you thought out yourself.

9. Where you had your NYSC is not on your CV. Include it if you can.

10. Build more on your job responsibilities during I.T

They are not your flaws but flaws on your CV. So for taking the time to help review your CV what the Op gets in return is some disparaging and snide remarks as words of appreciation. What's the fuss all about if he critiques your CV here? At least, other nairalanders like you and I can get to learn from it and edit similar mistakes on our cv too. Take this from me, this attitude won't help you in your job search. I'm talking from experience.


Bia Dmeanman, I no know say you don add HR work join your engineering work o. This one wey you just dey churn out career tips per second billing like say you be father Christmas. Biko, make I send you my CV? I need review too mbok, na only those Omo ale jatijati GNLD dey invite me for interview.

Great tips.

One major mistake we also make is not getting information about the said organization. This is your major mistake job seeker.

# How do they work?.
# What is their application and recruitment process.
# And general information about how to write an application letter or write a good CV.

Visit this thread first to understand my points:
https://grajdanskiy.ru/3593380/join-group-information-job-cvs

You cannot just be applying for jobs in the dark. You need to be informed.

On HRtechnique.com you can also get insights into every stage of the recruitment processes of these companies. If you cannot find yours, make a request or use the search tab. They are there.

Yes follow the Ops points, get a good CV review, make changes as recommended but more importantly, be informed.

DMeanMan sorry about the girl that did not appreciate your effort.

Have you tried sending unsolicited application to companies

Have you tried connecting with HRs and company managers on linkedin and trying to send them some professional career opportunity inquiry

Have you tried submitting CV to companies in hard copy by visiting their offices in person; sometimes it works even when it seems not normal

Have you tried to acquire new demanding skill in your field or a related field

The truth is; don't give up until you secure that your desired job, persistence pays.

Every list to success i see daily basis that does not include/underline the importance of the ' God factor' is useless and invalid.

'God-sciousness' should be #1 on every list to secondary success except for an unbeliever.
