What is the best legal hustle for a Nigerian Youth or graduate today?

By: dayan (M) |Time : May 11, 2019, 10:10:34 PM
The fact is that more Nigerian youths will graduate to enter into a jobless market this year.

In one of my past graduation ceremonies, the person chosen to deliver commencement speech said something that stuck with me till today.

He told the students to not go out there expecting jobs, but rather to be job-creators.

That graduation ceremony was not in Nigeria, but I believe the same holds true for Nigeria where joblessness is much worse.

So what do you think a new graduate should do to make a living in the Nigerian space?

Just suggest anything as long as it is legal.

The idea is to encourage more youths to positive rather than negative survival efforts.

Thanks!

I personally believe a fresh graduate should not be expected to create jobs.
What are the people who are working with Shell, Federal government parastatal working for several years doing? How many jobs have they created? Where do they want a fresh graduate to get money/fund to create job? Some youths go into internet scam just to raise money to start a business. If countries like USA, Canada and UK don't have enough jobs for their citizens, why would Africans be  migrating there? Our Government are not doing enough, I believe once you are a graduate you are entitled to some stipends or financial grants pending the time you are employed. Why waste several years to study, burn night candle, if there won't be job. Our elders are not helping matters as well, did they experienced what we are currently experiencing, most of them got scholarship to study, free meal(full Chicken), three or four job offers immediately they write their final papers, most of them once employed get a house, an official car etc
It is painful to talk about it. Some will say youth should start farming, do you need a university degree to be a farmer? No.
If Government with that big resources can't create job, how will youth will little or no resources create job?

On a serious note @ Alagbe our leaders have been mindlessly irresponsible over many years!
The problem we have today did not start today.
It was very predictable decades ago, and even the future will be worse if no real change happens.

Anyway let me not digress and go into politics, though politics contributed to this problem.
I'll make my suggestion next ...

Well said bro, an elder told me, Nigeria was good when you apply for job got interview notice, got the job etc. Then politicians came, and started politicising everything, before you can get job, you must have politicians connection. People who are not qualified are employed by politicians, corruption become worse, people are buying certificate once they have influence, ghost workers, an individual doing four or five jobs(eg Lecturers in public universities get appointment in 3 or 4 other private Varsities). All these things eventually have effect on the job availability to the youth. People retired yet government are not replacing them, I don't understand Nigeria, and if they will replace, it will be with their party members.

Nigerian universities should become more entrepreneurial than they are currently.

The truth is that money making is a craft that cannot be really taught in school. It has to be taught in an entrepreneurial setting.

The school can teach the theories and the principles, but it can never teach street wisdom for example.

I make this observation because some of my Igbo trader friends and relatives are far more competent when it comes to handling small business than graduates of universities with no street or real life experience.

The universities can (like latter day churches are currently doing) set up businesses where new graduates can work for some time before heading out to set up their own business using the experience they gained from that school owned business.

It can be ANY business, from food, to retail, to entertainment, to movies, to music, to writing, graphic design, programming, etc.

Nigeria should either financially empower the schools to do this as the post-graduate vocational training for one year after which the student proceeds to NYSC, or the NYSC should be scrapped and replaced with this mandatory one year hands on training in university owned businesses.
Upon final graduation, the student should get a soft loan to start off.

Who should pay for this?

The federal government should tax rich Nigerians more to fund it, particularly those rich old Nigerians above the age of 70 who are only waiting to pass on their HUGE wealth amassed fairly or unfairly to their own children.
They were the people who failed to lay the proper foundation for Nigeria anyways, so they should pay up.

No rich child is safe in Nigeria when some poor Nigerian kids come out of school unemployed and hungry.

My 2 kobo opinion.

Thank you... For a while I was beginning to think I wasn't trying enough - No capital... And some dudes will just sit inside a room with AC and be badmouthing someone anyhow...
