What Next After NYSC

By - - [ Education ]

I have pondered on this question everyday during my service year. Though there is divergence of opinions from every Corp member on what next to do after their service program

Some corps members have it in mind that they will get married immediately after their service year while others would be seeking for job opportunity.

 Some Corp member would try to further their education program while some would engage on entrepreneurship activities e.t.c.

Let us take Nigeria as a case study and example, Nigeria of yesterday is quite different from today  in every way, if we can observe it in all the ramifications. 

As I was told by the retired civil servants in those years, lucrative jobs were waiting for the NYSC member before the completion of their service year by then, but not like today when graduates suffer before they get employed. 

What next after NYSC: this is a good and direct question to every fellow corps member planning to pass out.

This is an answer, that every corps member needs to set a better planning perseverance and commitment in order to achieve his or her goals in life. 

In conclusion its God who knows the next after your NYSC and make sure you back it up with fervent prayers and firmly believe. 

WHAT NEXT AFTER NYSC!!!

Thats very thoughtful of you.

Its very important to think about what will happen next after your service.

To my opinion, i feel its wise to plan your life after service some months before it ends . Example, if your plan is to own or start an enterpenure you could start saving from then.

If you plan in getting a job, atleast 2 to 3 to the end of the service your Curriculum vitae should have been  ready and all your credentials intact so you could start applying for jobs cause its not easy to find a job in Nigeria.

After nysc calls for somber reflection. To not be in a state like this, have a plan from your day one in nysc. If it's more certification you feel is the best get it. But always have a back up plan should the plan A falter. Maybe it's a side hustle you will be managing before the White collar job comes.

In my opinion with what I know now, during my service year I would ensure I gain skill sets so that I can start using to make money while I explore other options,  whether furthering my education or waiting for a job.

Getting a white collar job is good, but then having a blue collar job seems better as it offers skills for value. 

In addition, agriculture has come up with many revival lately and has the potential of generating unlimited income and profits. 

Before my NYSC for instance, I drafted some proposals on livestock farming and management, I went on to research on the project of interests, before making it a hard copy, after which I defended my proposal in front of my presumed investor and it was a positive step. I haven't taken off the projects yet, but in line with the positions of the author in view of funds to activate the project, its looking very positive. GOD makes everything possible  mostly important  to note, HE is the way maker.

Even before finishing university you should be asking yourself the question what next? Because most of our youth get carried away during their nysc days because of the peanut they are been paid and after the nysc they become useless. U can easily learn something either before going for nysc or during nysc so u can start something before you get a job

To avoid being on the negative side of Nigeria situation after service year, there are some things you need to keep your self doing, which brings about the question, What next after service year?

1. DEVELOP YOURSELF

For the first few months after service, most will remain very idle and will have nothing doing. These first few months can be used in personal development of one’s self. Mentally, Physically, and in all ramification. Pick a skill and learn more about it, Pick up the books you have been procrastinating to read and read up. There are various books out there that can be used to develop yourself. From inspirational to spiritual to business and lots more. If already you have what you good at, you can as well develop on it.


2. LEARN A TRADE

Sounds awkward to the ears of someone that just finished service, right? As for me, it doesn’t. Learning a trade after NYSC does not deprive you of your integrity or speaks less of you. If you check the background of some of the top rice people in your locality or Nigeria at large, you will find out that they were into trade before they started making millions out of it. Learning a trade is not something to look down on, but an avenue to increase financially. It may be tiring and discouraging for some while after you start, but like the saying “Good things don’t come easily”, so while learning a trade also learn to also have an enduring spiritual.


3. CREATE A GOOD BUSINESS PLAN AND EXECUTE

Start up that dream business you have been nursing for long. Ben (surname withheld) did his service at NNPC towers Abuja, a very good place if you must ask me, a lot of connections and opportunities. Every month he got his “alawee” as popularly called amongst corp members, he bought clothes and shoes bags and fancy wrist watches just because he believed he needed to impress the other workers. Wrong motive I say because today he’s going through fasting and prayer just to get a job. While Daniel (Surname Withheld ) did his at a certain Ondo company, not well known and he even had issues with some months payments, but he saved up half of his allowance monthly and now he has his own functioning business. The difference between Ben and Daniel is that Daniel had a good plan laid down and a way of saving up to finance that plan from the general #19,800 all corp members receive monthly which he used to execute his plan.


4. FURTHER YOUR EDUCATION

To those of you who are the career driven types, you can decide to further your education by getting MSC (Masters) in the field of your choice. Search through accredited institutions before applying for your master’s program. Some will say no money to fund them. Common! there are lots of scholarship programs out there, if not full then half, you can just Google search through, apply and you might be lucky. It is okay to do your master’s degree program, but get this straight, if your sole purpose for doing masters is to get a high paying job, then you are heading for a shocker ‘cos guess what’? there are so many people with masters who are yet to get a job, talk less of good ones. So get certified in what you love and compliment it with something.


5. GET MARRIED

As funny as this may sound, it is so true and advisable for the female gender most especially. Getting married after your service year will save you from alot of stress and troubles, mostly financially and it will be a relieve to your father, as the responsibility of spending on you has been shifted to another man. Getting married after service year is a good thing and a way of serving time, instead of being idle or flirting around thereby wasting your precious time on people that don’t worth it.

CONCLUSION

Just before you finish your service year, ask yourself these questions:-
* What are my passionate about?
* What are my opportunities like?
* What skill do I possess.

When you answer these question correctly, then you have won 50% of the race.

This is what i ask myself each time students of about 80 graduates from a department like Civil Engineering from a federal university and another 80 students graduating from a state university still from Civil Engineering in a particular year like 2015/2016

how much more other students from other universities in the same department with graduates of that range

Now the question is, WHAT GUARANTEE IS THAT THEY WILL ALL BE SERVING THE NATION AFTER THEIR YOUTH SERVICE.

It is their difference in the different institutions they attend and study will determine how their life after NYSC will be.

After NYSC, the harsh realities of life will dawn on you. that's when you'll realize that its not about your certificate, or about how you graduated with a first class or distinctions, its actually about what you know and what you can do. this is why students in school are advised to study to acquire knowledge rather than study to pass exams.

As a man you should be looking towards getting a reasonable job and settling down with your own family,then as a woman you should be looking towards getting married if your not yet married and then looking for a comfortable job also.it doesn't just end in NYSC,this is just an end to open another door for the next level of life.

I think after the NYSC you just have to establish your self to have a comfortable life. It is either you start a business of your own or simply secure a job. After nysc one already has a great responsibility to face so you will have to look for a means in order for you to be able to make ends meet.

If I would answer this question I will say even before the pop in NYSC individual should have a better plan. All the allowee  should not be spent anyhow. Not only that, work that could sustain a person before seeking a job should be started before passing out,anyways,all with prayer. With God all things are possible. Just plan to have something doing for sustainance, that even if white collar job did not come, you can live to fee yourself and later settle down for a home.

What one would do ought to have been planned as an undergraduate. Nevertheless, b4 service finishes, it is wise to plan. Planning differs from individuals and resources available to them. It is advisable to learn a skill and apply for a job. You could learn the skill by weekend for the meantime so that there could be balance. This is because there would be bills to pay and there has to be a reliable source of income till your business gains ground. You could buy stuff to resell too, not necessarily a skill.

We really need to start planning towards it. Now adays , work ain't waiting for anyone you got do some research to where ever you want to get to.

But before learn a skill during the process of your Nysc and thereafter few months to your pop you can start searching for work and I trust by the end of your Nysc you should get a work. Then the skill is to help you out even if after nysc you did get a job on time.
