You have been looking for a job for so long…
why don’t you try volunteer jobs?
I don’t see why an able bodied person should sit down endlessly and submitting CVS lazily waiting to be called and handed over an employment letter.

Hey, get off that sofa, indulge in cold calls to companies of your choice and interest.
Tell them you want to work for them without a pay.
Commence work, put in your very best and be very productive… the result will amaze you!

Apart from that, there are many other things you can do to make money and develop yourself while you gain the experience.

In the city where I live, people make money by shopping for people. You can go to a posh area, approach the residents and tell them you can help them shop if they are too busy to. Don’t start by billing them excessively or ruining your chances because of greed. Shop and get the best prices for them. Take what ever they give you at the end and do it diligently. You can do it for at least 5 families every Saturday…
you will be amazed!

How about serving as a home tutor for your neighbours’ kids? This can occupy you and also fetch you money.

How about cooking and delivering food or snacks to people in their offices?

How about doing freelance sales and marketing and making great commissions through them. You will be quick to ask me where you will get the money to use for transportation. Darling, we are in the jet age. You can get people patronise your business or buy what you sell from Facebook and other social networks.
Same way you lie down and gossip through inbox, it’s same way you can have meaningful conversation with people.

Apart from these, there are many businesses that you can start with at least 5,000 naira.
Get busy! Get real!

Stop making noise about being a graduate, it’s not a big deal. It was a big deal when my dad went to school and they don’t brag about it.

What matters is what you…
What you can do no matter how small.

Do have a beautiful day.
