The compulsory 1-year National Youth Service is over and now it’s time to move on to the next phase of life. For some people, it’s the time to further their education while for others it’s time to join the labor market struggles. It is not news that finding a good job in Nigeria can be quite challenging. How then can one who just finished their NYSC keep busy while job hunting?
The good thing is that during the 12 months compulsory National Youth Service, corp members are encouraged to participate in the Skills acquisition programme (SAED) so as to have something to fall back on after the service year.
These skills are not necessarily handcraft.
Here are 7 things you can do to keep busy after your service year
1. Freelance writing
If your strength lies in writing then this job is for you as many blogs and websites in need of writers keep springing up. Sign up on sites like Fiverr and Upwork to connect with clients who would need your services.
2. Home Tutor
If you are good at teaching then this is a perfect job for you. Pick a subject you excel at and find parents whose kids need a tutor. Also, advertise yourself on social media and sign up to Tutorial agencies like Prep class and City Tutors to hasten the process.
