Would You Accept N12,000/months As Salary For A 2.1 Graduate?

Do you think there is job security in Nigeria? What would an average Nigerian graduate do after 4 years of endless search for a worthwhile job befiting his qualifications.

I went through this situation for 4 years but as a Second class (Upper) graduate, I was not getting good offer in most places I applied for. Most were telling me N12,000 per month, what would you do if you were in my shoes?

Honest Opinions please

Sorry moneymaking, am just a little bit confused here, you came on the 5th of Oct asking for advice on weather to pick up a 12k job or not and the same you came on the 6th Oct to tell the house that you've gotten some great doing, I suppose your post is a marketting strategy (this I was able to confirm when I even decided to check your link) anyway I have nothing against you marketting your stuff but I feel you should have come clear instead of pulling the legs of the members unnecessarily. To those who need job do not give up there are jobs in this country you just need to first accept that in your mind and you don't necessarily need a god-father, I am serious, and to those who are business incline, follow your passion. Cheers, it is well

Let me tell you a little bit about my efforts to secure a good job.

I did many tests, but I must inform you that most of the Bank test I did my name came out of the top 10. With 84% score. The last UBA test I did, I was no 4 with 82%. They interviewed a lot of us, but when it came to the group that I belong for interview, we were told we will be contacted through text msgs. but none came.

Others (banks) said they don't accept above 27 or 30. Well I'm 32.

But I have succeeded in areas I never expected I would financially and that is working online and I make more than what most graduate only dream of.

I think I'm happy for that. I have stopped searching for a job anyway as I'm busy with e-commerce and email marketing.

Thanks for the input

With 60,000 you don't even make up to a million naira per annum so when are you going to start living your life? as we all know, money makes the world go round.

We know it is not easy but those making it are making it big regardless of the 2.1 issue. So dream big and NEVER settle for less.

i think that you should take the jobs because every employer of labour is not willing to give you something substantial until he has evidence of what you can do for him that is to say that you have to motivate your employee so that he or she can motivate you. with time i believe that if he sees what you can do he or she would not like to let go. i would give you an instance with my own case, i started with 15,000, but when my boss saw that i was good in computers, management and science, he not only offered to pay me 60,000 but went ahead to give me a house also, so be focussed. bye

There's absolutely no reason why anyone should accept such a job especially a 2.1 graduate that's except you can't defend the attainment of that grade. what's to be done with 12,000 men that's not up to scratch, i'll rather fry puff and poo on the roadside.

Take a stand and work hard towards it (prayer and jazz: whichever works for you), something would come along soon enough. Better still try being self-employed.

A company that is willing to pay that low has no use for your peculiar skills and is sure to work you whole body to the bone.

Hello,

I would really urge you to take the job, better than being at home doing nadda.

Am in in a some what similar position but i earn 25k,{2.2}. i work with a contractor in PH, my boss (W.A.S.S.C.E) holder can't write! and i do all sort of jobs and run all sort of errand besides the project engineer am, belive me there are time that i just feel like shovin the job up his u know what, but i belive that's part of life's training process. WHAT DOESN'T KILL YOU MAKE'S YOU STRONGER!

So my guy take the job show them that you an do it better than they expect and who knows they may reconsider your salary when you show them what stuff you are made off!

SORRY FOR THE PREACHING.

@ makemoney if the job is not more than ur TFare, take it and use the money to buy stamps,Newspapers and pay for cafe, keep applying Gods time its the best it will surely come even if it delays.i know someone who waited 4 yrs she just got 4 jobs chasing her today, its not easy i know i ve been there but patience is a virue

from there you can continue to apply to other places, u wouldnt know maybe that place is your stepping stone.

Above all, get God involve in all your doing he is able.

Showstop what an advice.Well i guess you've not been looking at the right places or you've not put in enough effort.Submit ur cv in all the bank head offices in lagos (they are mostly on the Island)and see if you wont be called.Submit ur cv in at least 30 places and see if you won't be called did you do that or you just went to two or three places?Keep trying never give up ok.Keep your head up .

I have discovered an amazingly simple income system that will allow you and anyone else to earn an incredible income from home, just by using your computer and the Internet.

This system is called "The Safe cash System" and it does NOT involve any of the following:

* No building websites

* No selling products - in any way shape or form

* No advertising

* No data entry

* No Adsense

* No mailing lists

* No rebate processing

* No recruiting new members - this is not MLM

* No uplines or downlines

* No currency trading

* No chain letters

* No surveys or "paid to read" programs

I have been using this simple, system for the past couple of years to generate a mind-blowing income, and now I'm going to show you EXACTLY how.

Now I have absolutely no doubt that you've heard claims like that a thousand times before and you may have even tried a few programs already?

If you have tried then I can guarantee that you would have been required to do at least one of the following in order for you to make a profit:

1) Run a "pay per click" advertising campaign

2) Join affiliate programs

3) Recruit new members

4) Build websites

Sure, all of the above may be effective ways of making money, but are they for everyone?

Of course not!

Here's why:

1) "Pay per click" advertising costs have shot through the roof. Getting a decent ranking means paying more per click - most people end up losing money instead of making it.

2) Affiliate links and programs can be very confusing and overwhelming if you've never used them before.

3) Recruiting new members can be a waste of both time and money.

4) Building websites is time consuming, costly and too complicated for most people.

Forget about all of the above. In fact, forget EVERYTHING you think you know about making money online because I'm going to show you exactly how to make thousands of dollars by using methods that are so simple, so incredibly obvious, it still amazes me that they actually do exist.

For the past few months I have not had to sell one product, join one affiliate program or build a single website and I easily make above $2000 per day without fail.

THE PAY IS VIRTUALLY INSTANT

That's right, as soon as money goes into my online accounts, I am free to spend it! And since I don't have to rely on making sales I can just sit back, run the system and make a steady, GUARANTEED PROFIT each and everyday.

SOME MORE FACTS:

* Anyone in any country can make money with this

* This does not involve promoting affiliate products

* You will never have to run a pay per click advertising campaign

* You will not be applying for government grants

* This has nothing to do with MySpace, YouTube or anything else similar

* You will never need to work long hours

* This is not cash gifting

* This has nothing to do with investing in Real Estate

* This is not some "chain letter" scheme

* This is not "rebate processing"

* This is not a mail from home system

* You will never have to recruit anyone

* This is not a currency trading system

* You will never need to build or maintain websites

* This does not involve paid surveys or emails

* This is not envelope stuffing

THIS WILL NEVER BECOME SATURATED - EVER

This system is not based around selling or advertising - therefore competition means nothing. It doesn't matter if one or one million people do this - everyone can still earn as much as they want, whenever they want.

Market saturation is no issue. Some income systems are simply brilliant when they come out, but once everyone starts catching on, the competition increases and your earnings decrease.

This will never happen with Safe cash system - guaranteed. Everyone in your street or suburb could run this at the same time and you could all make just as much money - competition means nothing!

Safe cash system is an incredibly simple system - so simple, I bet that even a 12 year old could run this and make money. There is absolutely nothing complicated about it.

This is not a 500 page ebook and this is not some complicated money making course. This is a short, straight-to-the-point money making system that works without fail each and every time.

SO WHY AM I SHARING THIS WITH YOU?

Well firstly, as I mentioned above - competition is no issue. It doesn't matter how many people do this along with me because it will have absolutely no effect on my personal earnings.

Also, instead of saying something like "I just want to help people" or "I want to put an end to Internet scams" I'll simply be honest and say this,

Anything useful is worth selling for a price - plain and simple. People want to know how to make money and I'll gladly show them - for a price.

I show you how to make above $2000 every day by doing virtually nothing and you give me a small fee for that knowledge - that's a pretty fair transaction don't you think? Call Immediately Tel: 08054838259 or email olujco@yahoo.co.uk

I sincerely won't take it. What sense would that make, As a corp member I earn double that amount and I cant boast of having savings. I'll rather spend that amount of money on self-improvement courses or maybe go into buisness. Getting a job isn't a do or die for me.

i think its cos you are 32. Try to borrow from relatives,friends et al and start something for yourself. Im sure you will employ someone in a couple of years. But, dont pay people 12k per month o.

@viceb

quit. 40k is shits. when will you buy a brand new car with that. Go and do masters or better still get another place. If u aint old like makemoney, u can get places that will give you 40*4 for starters.

Well I started last year's September with a Media House. They were paying me about 18k and othere benefits made it abt 25k. Now I work in a PR firm and I get 40k but am not yet satisfied cos I came out with 2:1

Wut do u think Nairalanders?

What would i say? It's so sad that a graduate of 2.1 is offered 12k per month. What is happening in this Country, people with lesser degree get the best jobs. I would just suggest you try and get a job that would give you at least 1year experience and then change your job.

I started working in 2000 and my first job paid me 8k but i started, though it was difficult yet i had to do it becos of the experience after that job i have change jobs from 2001 till date more than 6time and now i earn reasonably high income.

I would just say you give it a try just for the experience.

12k is not good 4 a 2:1 graduate. it's slavery.

Funny enough, some will accept it. But come

to think of it, a corporate driver with just SSCE

can earn as much as 50K

The most important thing is for people to estimate

their self worth realistically and not settle for less.

Excellent, so you actually found a job that pays you what you ought to be earning.

at your age, i agree it might be a challenge to get an entry level job so you might want to start prep'ing urself for leadership roles (supervisor, manager jobs etc) if you ever decide you want to work as an employee again

very good,

Keep it up

there is no job security anywhere in the world not even in japan that used to give lifetime employment.

your 2.1 is no guarantee of anything, i expect that in four yrs you wrote many tests with other graduates, if you were not able to secure those jobs, that shld tell you that maybe you are not as good as you imagine you are and you need to keep working on yourself

dont forget the adage that says, 'to continue to be in front in a race, you need to run faster!'

Well, you have to weigh the pros and cons. ask yourself the following questions

do u have a means of sustenance e.g family willing and able to provide you food and shelter while you look for better opportunities?

can you do something more fruitful and productive with yourself in terms of financial returns if you dont accept this job?

will this job prevent you from looking for better jobs?

if your answers are yes to all of the above then you are better off without this job. but if No, then you might want to consider starting from there. there is no shame in humble beginnings.

the problem we have these days are young people with BIG wishes instead of BIG dreams. people who start small and dream big are ready to put in the mental and physical effort to make the dreams come true but most people want to have priviledges but are not ready to take the responsibilities that go with those priviledges

i started out in 2001 post NYSC as a part time computer lecturer for 5000 naira a month but i knew that was not the place for me and my answers to those questions i posed earlier were even yes at the time
