Unemployment is a huge problem in #Nigeria of
today. There just seem not to be enough jobs
for the teeming population of graduates and job
seekers. It has become the proverbial “many
are called few are chosen” thing. There are
many graduates that apply for jobs almost
every day yet they wonder why they don’t get
invited for interviews or aptitude tests. The fact
is their countless job applications might have
been turned down due to one or more of the
following reasons. So what are these obstacles
and how can you avoid them as a job seeker?
1. Applying for every available job
To some job seekers, it’s all about quantity. They
believe that your chances of getting an invite
increases with the number of CVs you send.
They tend to care less whether or not they are
qualified or eligible for such positions. It’s more
of the “try your luck” thing. Interestingly they
are surprised that they are not getting invited
for interviews and tests.
2. Defeatist mindset
One of the common excuses among Nigerian
job seekers who fail in their job search is “you
will never get a job until you know somebody”.
While it is true that in Nigeria of today who you
know matters, I sincerely believe that it is over
exaggerated. The average company still offers
merit-based employment. No serious company
would want to populate her workforce with
mediocre. Not everyone on the company’s
payroll is a member of the MD’s family or his/
her relative. When a candidate fails in his/her
efforts to get a job by merit they turn around
and lay the blame on their lack of connection.
3. Lack of good networking skills
Life is all about networking. Networking is one
of the most easiest and effective way to get a
good job in Nigeria. You would be surprised at
the number of vacancies that are not advertised
in the public media. How do such companies
recruit staff? By referral and word of mouth of
course. The good thing here is that the usual
crowd that is a common occurrence in the
publicized job adverts is non-existent here. So if
you do not know how to effectively network,
your chances of lingering long in the job market
is very high.
4. Reluctance to volunteer or intern
The mindset of the average job seeker is they
see job opportunity as a way to make big
money. They would most likely turn down an
opportunity to volunteer or intern if they are
very sure that there will not be any financial
reward in it for them. What they however fail
to realize is that most companies would prefer a
candidate that have volunteered or interned to
one without any experience at all. Volunteering
is one quick and easy way to gain the much
needed work experience that most job seekers
are not considering.
5. Inability to make a positive impression
during interviews
This is about the major reason why most job
seekers do not land the job. You have just a
few minutes to make a lasting impression on
the minds of your interviewers. Inability to do
this will lead to the infamous but common
response “you’ll hear from us later” which they
never do. Employers are more interested in
where and how you can add value to their
organization and not everything that you’ve
done. Consider an interview as a movie trailer
and not a season film.
