OUR inherited colonial education is astonishingly and fantastically useless.
Otherwise, explain why tens of millions of Nigerian university graduates, after 18-22 years of school (from nursery to university), still sit at home begging for job!!!
18 wasted years!
Step 1: Throw away those useless university certificates of yours with its impotent ego!
Step 2: Unlearn all the useless theoretical knowledge they filled your skull with at school.
Step 3: Find a MARKETABLE skill that produces tangible product or technical service that people want.
Step 4: Self re-educate, paying particular attention to character development and soft skills such as communicating effectively and working harmoniously with people.
Step 5: Apprentice patiently. Learn from masters of your chosen craft. There’s nothing you can’t find online.
Step 6: Learn SELLING as if your future depends on it, because it does. If you can’t sell yourself and your services, hunger will happily keep you company.
Step 7: Be patient! You already wasted 18 years of miseducation. It’s going to take some time to reformat and reconfigure your miseducated head.
Patience is a strategy!!
THE SAD THING
Is that 1,000 people will see this practical solution, but only 2 people will actually do it.
The remaining 998 will continue with the same strategy that has failed them for years – hawking their CVs and complaining about everything.
If you’re still on LinkedIn begging for job one year from reading this, shame on you and your education!
