8 Things You Must Do Before Concluding Your NYSC Programme

Job hunting could be an uphill task for
most fresh graduates considering the fact
that it is a game of the survival of the
fittest.Below are a list of 8 things you
must get done while serving your nation to
be better positioned for the job hunt
especially in the private sector.
1.DECIDE ON THE KIND OF JOB YOU
WANT:
The first thing you must do is to take a
decision on the kind of job you want.You
can even stream line it down to the list of
companies you would want to
work for, that way you know what you are
preparing for and how to go about it. It
amuses me
when job hunters come to my office and I
ask them what kind of job do you want
and they go like “oga, any job”. Any job is
no job dude, take a decision today because
it will determine a whole lot of things in
your preparation.
2.RESEARCH:
Carry out a research on the company(ies)
you would like to work with. It baffles me
how people submit their CVs to companies
they know little or nothing about. A little
research will do you some go…

How states used bailout fund without paying workers' salaries

5 things that would make you look older than your real age

The world may not be a very good place to
live in but then, nobody wants to die either.
So while you are busy mounting the whole
pressure of the world on yourself, you should
learn to slow down and take things slow.
We all know the world we live in is filled with
trials and tribulations, beautiful moments and
perhaps moments considered gory; all in all,
we have to make the most out of it and learn
to live life to the fullest.
Without trying to be offhanded and spooky,
does being so depressed at the outturn of
things ever change the resulting events? No
man can add a day to his destined years by
worrying but you can sure add a grey hair to
the hairs on your head.
One irony of life is that people do all they
could to look older while growing in order to
command respect, but after a certain stage in
life, these same people try their best possible
to look younger than their real ages.
There are a number of factors responsible for
making people. And subsequently, we would
be addressing the…

The American officials said that the joint
forces of the USA and African countries have

Chibok schoolgirls abducted by the Boko

However, the rescue operations have not
been carried out because of fears that any
succeeding battle with the insurgents would

form of revenge against captives still being

According to the officials, a combination of
local intelligence, intercepted communications
and drone footage had been used to find
groups of the girls this month.

LOCAL NEWS 6 areas Buhari's government has failed Nigerians

President Muhammadu Buhari won the
March 28 presidential election defeating the
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which held
power for 16 years since Nigeria returned to
democracy.
Former president, Goodluck Jonathan handed
over power to him on May 29.
Before he was elected as president, he made
a lot of promises to Nigerians. His party, the
All Progressives Congress (APC) promised
the people ‘change’.
Nigerians who were already tired of the PDP-
led administration decided to try this change
and it appears some are already regretting
their decision.
It’s close to 11 months since Buhari was
sworn in as president and Nigerians are yet
to feel the change. It’s been one challenge
after the other, from painful fuel scarcity, to
poor power supply, to a fall in the value of
the naira.
Some are of the opinion that it is still too
early to judge the president, saying the
people should exercise patience as the
hardship will soon be over.

5 Best Tips For Submitting an Online Job Application (SHARE THIS)

Application forms are irritating. They ask
difficult questions, some of which you may
consider impertinent, others just silly. Why
do employers use them?
While most employers still rely on CVs,
large organisations that receive huge
numbers of job applications generally
prefer to use their own application form.
By using these forms they get answers to
the questions they want answered not just
the information you decide to give. They
can also more easily compare one
application with another, which is much
more difficult with CVs.
So
how
do
you

Here
are 5
of the
best
tips:
1.
Thoroughly read job descriptions. Most
recruiters will tell you a big pet peeve is
hearing from job seekers who apply even if
they aren’t qualified for the job. Take the
