RE: JSS 2 STUDENT IMPREGNATES CORPS MEMBER

The attention of the National Youth Service Corps, Cross River State has been drawn to a malicious publication making the rounds in the social media, alleging that a Female Corps Member was impregnated by a teenage boy (student) in the state.

To put the records straight, there is nothing as such in Cross River as claimed by the unknown writer. It is only meant to malign the reputation and integrity of the Scheme and the public perception of our Corps Members. The National Youth Service Corps is a reputable organisation that is very proud of her Corps Members because of their high level of discipline and responsibility and therefore can not be involved in such a shameful act.

For the avoidance of doubt, the authorities of NYSC at Local, Zonal and State levels never received any report of such formally or informally.

The said news is the handiwork of fake news hawkers who derive joy in seeking attention or traffic to their websites, at the expense of protecting journalistic code of ethics.

Embarrassingly the originators of the news failed to state the source of the news rather was dwelling on imaginary school, JSS student and Corps Member.
Worthy of note is the fact that, NYSC has a laid down procedure for approaching matters on Corps Discipline and Reward. But as at the time of fielding this rejoinder, no Corps Member in Cross River State is connected with such negative Act.

It will interest the general public to note, that one of the focus of NYSC Orientation programme is that of instilling high sense of discipline and reinforcement of strict moral standards and conduct which subsequently guide their operational behaviour at their various Places of Primary Assignment and their host Communities of service.

While calling on the general public to dismiss and disregard such jaundice report, Management of the Scheme in Cross River State and at the National Directorate Headquarters advises the authors and originators of such callow write up to retract same and henceforth, desist from manufacturing fake news with the intention of deflating the reputation of the NYSC scheme but rather pay attention to the numerous selfless services rendered to Cross River communities by Members of the National Youth Service Corps.

Thank you.
Management.

DISCLAIMER
RE: PAYMENT OF ARREARS TO CORPS MEMBERS

The attention of the Management of the National Youth Service Corps Scheme has been drawn to a false story purported to have emanated from the Director-General of the Scheme, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim to the effect that Corps Members would receive arrears as a fall out of the recent pay raise given to them by the Federal Government which has been roundly appreciated by Corps Members and Nigerians.

Indeed, the fulfillment of the promise of the increment by the Federal Government is borne out of utmost concern for the welfare of our patriotic youths and commencement date is January 2020 as budgeted in the 2020 fiscal year.

Therefore, Corps Members and members of the public are hereby advised to disregard the so - called purported breaking news from the DG NYSC, Brig Gen Shuaibu Ibrahim announcing the payment of various sums of money as arrears to ex - Corps Members of 2018 Batches and serving Corps Members of 2019 Batches.

Kindly verify information from the NYSC official platforms or the State Secretariats nationwide on issues concerning the Corps. Never respond to bogus instructions on phantom sites and sources.

Be rightly guided please.
Thank you.

Management.

DG CLEARS AIR ON CORPS MEMBERS' ALLOWANCE

The Director-General, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim has cleared the air on the amount approved as Corps Members' monthly allowance by the Federal Government in line with the new National Minimum Wage.

He disclosed this while speaking to Corps Members at the NYSC Bauchi State Secretariat during his working visit to the State.

Ibrahim explained that contrary to the various amounts being circulated on the social media, the sum of thirty-three thousand naira had been approved as the new rate.

He also said provision had been made for the new allowance in the year 2020 Budget, adding that payment would commence as soon as funds are released by the appropriate authorities.
Speaking further, he advised the Corps Members to always be security conscious just as he warned against rumour mongering and negative usage of the Social Media.

He admonished them to avoid unauthorized journeys and, when authorised to travel, not to do so at night because of the inherent danger.

This is the conclusion on our series on things you should note and know after NYSC or and as you begin another journey away from clearance and PPA.

If you are yet to follow the series you cna check the last series

Batch 2 COMMON INTERVIEW QUESTIONS FOR GRADUATES

Batch 1 is in the link above,

1. Tell us about yourself? The interviewer is not interested in hearing stories; they simply expect to know your academic and professional achievements, your name and the institution you currently work for. Take a minutes to introduce yourself, and state your recent academic qualification and your relevant experience (if any).

2. Why do you think you are the best candidate? The recruiter expects you to tell them about your professional achievements and the unique skills you possess that will add value to the organization. If you are a Customer Care graduate then you should tell them that you are a good listener and patient; these are the qualities the employer is looking for.

3. What are your weaknesses? The question is not simple as it looks; most candidates go blank when they face this kind of question. Take your time in explaining why you can’t leave the office before you complete a task. You can also inform them how you are quick to trust a person, which in most cases makes you a victim.

4. Where do you see yourself in five years? The employer wants to know whether you are ambitious or you’re the kind of a person who secures a job and then you forget about yourself. Answer the question by stating how you intend to further your studies and grow professionally as you strive to meet your employer’s goals. (It is important to tie your goals to your employer's goals because no employer would be willing to hire and invest in a rookie who will leave their organization in a year or less after they have invested in training the individual)

5. How do friends describe you? The question is testing your personal attributes, when answering it ensure that you don’t over exaggerate. Take the shortest time possible to state the best attribute you possess that you believe will add value to the institution.

6. What do you know about this company? Before you enter the interview room, ensure that you go through the company website to read latest news, company profile, goals, management team, objectives, vision and mission; they will help you answer this question.(where the company is unknown, do your research and be familiar with the business/industry you desire to build your career) The question expects you to briefly describe what you read on their website and not what you imagine of the company.

7. Do you have any question to ask the panel? This is usually the last question that the interview panel asks interviewees; if you fail to ask them questions, you will lose some marks, always have a question to ask no matter what. Ask them whether they have plans to expand their business, whether they support employees to further their studies and how they motivate employees. You can pull a surprise by asking when you can start, it shows confidence.

8. What is your salary expectation? The question is tricky because as a fresh graduate you don’t have a clue what to be paid; simply ask them what they pay others of your level, if they fail to give a satisfactory answer then give them a reasonable range. Ensure you do your research before you go for interview room because you must be asked this question.

Good evening to everyone, let us continue on our cover letters introduction.

In case you don't have the introduction check it

We will continue from there but before that let us have a quick reminder of what we say cover letter is

A cover letter is a letter used in applying for a job position. It tells the employer your achievement(s) and how you can replicate same achievement in his firm if considered for the job.

Therefore in continuation to the list last time.
Cold calling cover letter

  1. Now, we send speculative or cold calling cover letters to firms we are not sure have vacancies but we want to work there. You send such cover letters and then send a follow-up letter three weeks later. The idea is to put yourself in the eyes of the employer.

  2. Cover letters response to job adverts have taken over application letters. It is written to woo an employer that you are the right candidate for the job. Here, you look at the skills they need the candidate to have and tell the employer you can do it. You also tell the employer problems you've solved in the past. It could be when you made your students do well in WAEC during your Youth Service year or when you made a good sales for your former/present firm. Even your social media skills can be brought in by telling your employer that you would use it to project the firm to people.

  3. Cover letters with name dropping is used when you are recommended by someone to a company. On the letter, you will need to state who recommended you and address the letter to the particular person you were told to write. It takes the form of speculative cover letter but only has names stated on it. So in a nutshell, cover letters are to make you sell your skills, so give the employer your best shot.

Ok. I will like to address some interview questions and how to answer them.

  1. MAY WE MEET YOU?

You are not expected to tell them your life history of how you are the last born and related to your village head. All they want to know are your name, educational background and career background. e.g My name is Michael Jacob, a graduate of Mechanical Engineer from University of Lagos and also a career engineer.

  1. WHY SHOULD WE HIRE YOU?

This gives you an opportunity to sell yourself. Tell them about your qualification, experience (if you have) and skills.

I should be hired because I'm academically qualified for the job. I also have the needed experience and skills needed to carry out the task I'm being interview for.

  1. ARE YOU MOBILE?

If you like tell them 'Yes, I have a car' or 'Of course! who doesn't have a phone?'. You are on your own.

What they are simply asking is are you free to relocate from your present location if we employ you?'. If it's possible, simply say 'yes'.

  1. CAN YOU TELL A LIE TO PROTECT THE INTEREST OF THIS FIRM IF EMPLOYED?
    This question is meant to cage you to 'one corner'. I know you all know the song.
    If you say 'yes', it means you can't be trusted. If you say 'no', it means you don't have the interest of the firm at heart. So what do you say?
    Simply Tell them, 'As a professional, I will do anything within my powers to protect the interest of my company'. 'within my powers' is an open statement. That means if you can lie, you will. If you can't lie, you w

  2. HOW MANY BOYFRIENDS/GIRLFRIENDS DO YOU HAVE?

This is a tricky one. Don't go self destructive by telling them,' I have two boyfriends sir, Emeka and Peter. In case, Emeka disappoints me'.
They are not interested in your affairs. This is a 'perfunctory' question meant to probe your disposition. They want to know how sociable you are. So answer this way, Sir; I have many friends and if given the opportunity to work here, I will make sure they do business with this firm.

22 of the Biggest Resume Mistakes to Avoid at All Costs

Job hunting is a lot like online dating, which makes your resume like your dating profile. You apply for a role in the hopes that you get an interview, which is almost like asking someone on a date. After a few interviews, you see if you’d like to make things more official. You start the role. There’s usually some sort of trial period, commonly three months, where both employer and employee are seeing if there’s a good fit. After that, you become a full employee. With that in mind, your resume is how you make a first impression – so you need to do it well. That’s why we’ve compiled the top resume mistakes to avoid at all costs in this article. Keep reading for tips and insights on the key things to make sure you never do on your resume.

  • Letting typos slip through

Even in the world of spellcheck, this is a relatively easy issue. One study by CareerBuilder found that 58 percent of resumes have spelling errors in them – that’s way too high. Understand this for what it is: the HR people do not have some type of vendetta against spelling errors in and of themselves. Rather, what they see when they come across as a spelling error is a lack of conscientiousness.

When you have typos in your resume, recruiters see someone who apparently did not even take their application seriously enough to proofread it before clicking the “Send” button or mailing it in. This isn’t the impression you want to give off, so be sure to eliminate all spelling errors before submitting your resume.

  • You didn’t have someone proofread

Nothing screams “Unprofessional!” like grammatical mistakes and sentences that make no sense in a document meant to impress a potential employer. Even with all the tools available to you, another pair of eyes can be the crucial last step.

Have at least one friend, mentor, or teacher (two is even better) with a good grasp of spelling and grammar look over your resume before you submit it. You’ll be glad you did, if they find something “quiet” embarrassing.

  • Inappropriate email address

In most applications, an email address is a requirement – gone are the daily of snail mail correspondence or solely phone calls. Nothing wrong with that. Unfortunately, many applicants make the mistake of leaving personal or inappropriate email addresses rather than professional ones.

Put yourself into the recruiter’s shoes. You are looking at two very impressive applications, but one of them lists their email as “ismokeweedeveryday@gmail.com” while the other lists theirs as “John.Smith@gmail.com.” Which person are you more likely to invite for an interview? Which are you most likely to dump in the proverbial garbage? If you don’t already have a professional-sounding email address, sign up for one. Side note here: Gmail tends to be best, as yahoo and hotmail can end up in spam filters.

  • Inaccurate or missing contact information

If you’re successful in your application, the company needs a way to contact you to book an interview. The vast majority of the time, that’s done through email. In some rare cases, you’ll get a call. However, if you don’t provide accurate contact information (or don’t provide any contact information at all), there is no way for recruiters to reach out to you.

Thankfully, this problem is largely solved through technology. When you apply to a job online, the company’s applicant tracking system (ATS) will require an email, phone number, or both. Just make sure you provide the right information.

  • Listing irrelevant, non-job-related information

Too many applicants try to get stand out in applications by highlighting irrelevant things. A 6 month trip to Thailand may be an amazing experience for some jobs and provide depth about you as a person, but a long weekend vacation in Mexico or the fact that you love your dog likely is not.

It’s understandable to want to “liven up” your application, but remember this: the recruiter or hiring manager who will eventually read your resume reads thousands of applications each year. A study by TheLadder found that the average hiring manager spends about 6 seconds looking at a resume. Don’t give them a reason to toss it in the trash by highlighting irrelevant things in an attempt to be relatable – focus on connecting your experiences and previous work to the job you’re applying for.

  • Poor formatting

A well laid-out resume will help you in three major ways:

It will make your resume more easily read by computers.
It will help the recruiter or hiring manager find relevant details more quickly.
It shows that you know how to clearly communicate in writing, a necessary skill in nearly every job.
It can be tempting to fiddle with the formatting of your resume so it has a new look, with a unique layout or fancy font. Bottom line, resist the temptation.

An employer who is wading through a stack of resumes doesn’t have time to decipher an oddly formatted page. Recruiters need to be able to quickly scan your resume to find out if you’re qualified, and likely won’t be impressed if they have to stop and decipher your layout.

Stick to easy-to-read fonts, don’t create tiny margins, and don’t cram your resume with dense blocks of text — use plenty of white space so it’s easier to scan.

  • Use of personal pronouns

This rule is hotly debated, with good arguments on both sides. Avoiding personal pronouns like “I” and “Me” in resumes is considered the traditional way of doing things, while using them in a new-age belief that a resume is a personal branding document. Since you did the things in your resume, it would make sense that you could say you did.

  • We advise against using personal pronouns for two reasons:

While using pronouns is increasing in popularity, not using them is still the accepted standard across the board and will help ensure you don’t get disqualified because the employer doesn’t like them.
Resumes need as much white space as possible while at the same time you have to explain how you’re qualified for a role. Pronouns take up characters and space on the page, so not using them gives you more room to work with.

  • Trying to sound too “well-rounded”

Some applicants believe they will look better to employers if they seem well-rounded. In general, this is true. But don’t take it too far. If your entire resume focuses on breadth, talking about how many committees you’ve served on or the wide variety of job titles you’ve held, then you risk coming off as too shallow in your work experience.

Looking well-rounded has a decreasing marginal return the more senior the role is that you’re looking for. When a business is hiring for more senior people, the leadership wants to know you have deep domain expertise and “climbed the ranks.” Focusing on appearing too well-rounded will backfire and make you look inexperienced.

  • Self-deprecation

Too many resumes have self-deprecating remarks and phrases. While it’s understandable to not want to be seen as bragging on your application, you still want to look good. It is for this reason that statements like “graduated in the top 66% of my class” and “self-employment: what a disaster that was” will not make you look good. Rather, they will make you seem like a potential issue for the organization, someone who probably shouldn’t be trusted with much power or autonomy.

  • Bragging

Of course, the other side of the resume blunder coin are applicants who excessively brag about themselves or their achievements.

Again – you do want your resume to make you look like a strong candidate. What you do not want is obnoxious arrogance, as seen in statements like “you will never find a better candidate than me”, or “my job performance is unsurpassed”, or “if you don’t hire me, you’ll regret it”. Such statements make you seem cocky and indicate a potential lack of team spirit (or even narcissism). Even if you meant it as a joke, keep it off the resume. Let the interview be the time you show your sense of humor.

  • You focused on duties, not achievements

Listing the duties you performed at previous jobs is fine, but your main focus should be on what you actually accomplished there. Did you score a big new contract for your previous employer? That’s a far more compelling statement than just saying you dealt with outside sales.

Make sure you include any awards or accolades you received as part of your previous jobs, and solid benefits you brought to your employers. For best results, be as specific as you can: “I landed an account that brought X dollars of new business” is better than “I sold our widget to a new customer.”

  • Burying your strengths

Some otherwise good resumes handicap themselves by listing important skills at the bottom While you may not want to brag (good on you), you still have to show that you’re a good candidate for the role.

As a rule of thumb, make sure you demonstrate your skills starting with the skills most relevant to the job. Find a creative way to ensure those are right at the top, included in your first professional experience. Read over your resume a few times and put yourself in the position of a busy recruiter. Would your job-specific skills jump out to them? If not, rearrange your resume so that they will.

  • Lack of bullet points

With the rise of computerized resume scanning (and even AI for resume reading), ensuring your resume can be read easily by scanner is essential. One easy way to do this is to use of bullet points.

Do not make the mistake (which many applicants do) of writing everything in as a “wall” of text, hoping that whoever reads your resume will painstakingly read your every word to extract the important parts. They will not. Instead, use bullet points to clearly show different experiences within the same job, explain the details of your role, and explain the results you accomplished.

  • Adding references directly on the resume

While some employers may ask for a reference, this is usually one of the final steps in the interview and hiring process. Since the goal of a resume is to get you the interview, it needs to be short and sweet – no more than one page. Adding references at the end will add unnecessary bulk to your resume. Adding references on your one page will take up valuable space that you should be using to explain your accomplishments in previous roles.

You should have references at the ready, but don’t provide them until asked. When in doubt, leave the references out.

  • The “more is better” mentality

Put simply: employers do not have the time (or desire) to read lengthy resumes. If your resume is more than one page, you risk a recruiter thinking some negative things about you:

That you don’t know how to follow established custom (resumes are nearly always supposed to be one page, unless the job posting explicitly asks for longer).
That you are unable to prioritize and focus to show your experiences as they apply to this specific job, not your whole professional history.

  • That you brag and need to share everything.

None of these are good things. They may not even be true about you, but an overly long resume sends the wrong message. Stick to one page unless the job description asks for more.

  • Sending an ugly attachment

We’ve all been there: you send something out as an email attachment, only to have it look different (sometimes drastically) on your recipient’s computer than it does on yours. This can be disastrous if the random factor and chaos of the Internet messes up your resume’s formatting or bullets. Luckily, this need not become an obstacle.

Before sending your resume via email, simply “test” send it to a few of your friends (or your own email on a different device) and verify how it looks. If it looks as it does on your computer, send it to the employer. If not, find out why and fix it. To avoid this problem entirely, save documents as PDF files, which appear the same on all types of computers.

  • Bashing previous employers

Not every job applicant has the benefit of writing a resume with a sparkling job history. Some have been fired numerous times or been involved in conflicts with bosses at one or more jobs. There is a strong tendency among such people to demonize their ex-bosses in the resume, blaming them for their own failures. But while you might think this makes you look better, it rarely has this effect. Rather, most employers will read something like “I only got fired because my boss was an unrealistic jerk” and imagine themselves being in that boss’ shoes someday.

If you approach your previous issues with malice or anger in your resume, you will be seen as a “problem-person” and probably ignored. The far more effective and mature approach is to simply acknowledge any past difficulties you may have had and exude an honest, sincere willingness to put those things behind you.

  • You lied

Just to clear up any confusion: lying on your resume is a quick way to not get hired. And if you make it through the interview process and get hired, employers finding out you lied is a quick way to get fired.

Desperation can make it very tempting to pad your resume with an embellishment here or an outright lie there, but it’s likely to hurt you eventually. Your resume is your first chance to impress an employer. Take the time to make it shine, and you’ll boost your chances of standing out from the crowd. If you’ve faced a lot of hardships and don’t have “traditional” requirements like a university degree, focus on the practical skills you’ve learned instead – that could very well put you ahead of Ivy League graduates who have fancy degrees but no practical skills.

  • Not showing your qualifications

Many jobs have specific requirements such as a certification or specific degree. If you have that certification or degree and don’t make that clear on your resume, you’re likely costing yourself the job without meaning to. Be sure to look at the job description for specific criteria such as qualifications to teach or professional certifications. Make sure to highlight the skills they are looking for with a bulleted list of your related qualifications at the top of the document.

On the flip side, also take an honest look at your qualifications. If you don’t have the required designations, certifications, or degrees, you probably shouldn’t apply for the job unless the job description clearly states that there is professional development available. That said, you could also take the risk and email the recruiter to ask if the company will sponsor you to get the designation – you never know.

  • Copycat-ing the job description

If you’re simply tailoring your resume to fit into what the potential employer has outlined as job description in the advertisement, you’re missing the point of your resume. HR departments already know what the job is; your resume should highlight your accomplishments and how you are best suited for that position.

Be sure to show what you’ve really done by outlining the process, outcomes and results that are specific to your own work experience. Copying the key phrases on the job description (known as “job application SEO”) may help you get past the initial screen, but likely won’t make it past a human – or artificial intelligence – read of your resume.

  • Inaccurate or missing work dates

Employers need to know when you worked & where, in order to get a better understanding of your working history. They may also use the dates for background and reference checks. Missing dates, especially for long periods of time, could send up a red flag, and the resume may be discarded.

Include specific ranges in months and years for every position (you don’t need to go down to days). If you have gaps, explain them either in your cover letter or introduction, but not in your resume. It always helps to list any continuing education and training that you have taken and to list any volunteer/project-based work during a slow period or summer months. Listing these under education or volunteer work should explain some of the gaps
At the same time, you also want to highlight your strongest work experiences first, so there’s some leeway to switch things up. However, if the most relevant work experience you have for a job is from your work five companies (and many years) ago, it’s possible that the job is not right for you. Make sure you’re focusing on recent transferable skills, using older job experiences to show that you have depth and long-term experience to back up your recent skillsets.

As a prospective corp members, it maybe lingering in your mind,

  • why NYSC Remobilisation first?
  • What is remobilization?
  • can I go with this set of people?
  • Who are they, and what qualify them for remobilization?

This post intends to answer all that, let us start?

You must have come across a recent memo of NYSC evasion, and NYSC getting serious with it legal implications, remobilization is birth from the aftermath of absconding service.
We all know that NYSC service year is compulsory for every Nigeria youth, that graduates below the age of 30 and not in arm forces or with national awards.
Therefore, after a while of not report and later they are ready to be back in service, they enter with any chance of remobilization. Note this is not Revalidation and they are not reporting to camp, they absconded or sent away from camp. So no more NYSC orientation for this people

What does the NYSC bye law says about this?

The NYSC bye law is the law that established the scheme,
Just like we stated, remobilization are for some eligible Nigerian graduates who were duly mobilized and deployed for National Service have willfully refused, neglected and failed to serve continuously for a period of one year as specified in the Call-Up instrument.

The Bye law
"In pursuant to the provisions of Section 2(1) of the National Youth Service Corps Act, Cap. N84, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004.
It is a criminal offence punishable under the provisions of Section 13(1) (b) of the NYSC

Act as follows:
“Any person:-
(b) who refuses to make himself available for service in the service corps continuously for the period specified in subsection (2) of this section,
is guilty of an offence and liable on conviction to a fine of N2,000 or to imprisonment for a term of 12 months or to both such fine and imprisonment.”
"

Can I go with this set of people?

Like we have explained what qualify them for remobilization, The NYSC management uses remobilization as a second chance to this defaulters.

Since you are not a defaulter, neither do you have first chance, you will agree with me that you are not qualified

Let me end my post by saying, it is hence another chance for Nigerian people, some might not be youth again, to get back and finish serving their fatherland.

Nigeria we serve
Nigeria we ours

Cover Letters

What is a Cover Letter?

A cover letter is a letter used in applying for a job position. It tells the employer your achievement(s) and how you can replicate same achievement in his firm if considered for the job. In fact, a cover letter allows you sell yourself to an employer, making him see what he stands to gain should he employ you. The major idea behind cover letters is to enable you seduce your would-be boss to see you as the best candidate. However, we have to be careful with our choice of words so we don't brag instead of selling our skills. We have three major types of cover letters and they all play different roles:

  1. Speculative or cold calling cover letters

  2. Cover letters in response to job adverts

  3. Cover letters with names dropping.

  4. Now, we send speculative or cold calling cover letters to firms we are not sure have vacancies but we want to work there. You send such cover letters and then send a follow-up letter three weeks later. The idea is to put yourself in the eyes of the employer.

  5. Cover letters response to job adverts have taken over application letters. It is written to woo an employer that you are the right candidate for the job. Here, you look at the skills they need the candidate to have and tell the employer you can do it. You also tell the employer problems you've solved in the past. It could be when you made your students do well in WAEC during your Youth Service year or when you made a good sales for your former/present firm. Even your social media skills can be brought in by telling your employer that you would use it to project the firm to people.

  6. Cover letters with name dropping is used when you are recommended by someone to a company. On the letter, you will need to state who recommended you and address the letter to the particular person you were told to write. It takes the form of speculative cover letter but only has names stated on it. So in a nutshell, cover letters are to make you sell your skills, so give the employer your best shot.

I know, it is just like yesterday you are full of excitement of been a graduate. Going to camp.

And with memorable experience in camp not to talk of the lecture and parade. It is as if it should not end again.

This later transit to those wonderful PPA experiences, people calling you a corpers on the road and in the market. As if it is your first name.

But this will and for many has ended too, let start bumping up for the excitement of this post NYSC that brings the topic of what you should know and note after NYSC

What is a CV?

A CV is an official document that contains the profile, educational and career background of a person.

In our part of the world, CV and a résumé means the same thing but in other climes, they mean different things entirely. Some of us have been submitting CVs like forever and yet we don't get interview invites. The problem is that your CV is not passing what is known as The 30 seconds Test. The 30 seconds test simply means that an employer or interviewer will decide if he's going to employ you or not within 30 seconds of perusing your CV.

The Do's and Donts of CV

*packaging;

  1. Never start your CV with "Curriculum Vitae". Start with your name boldly written with a larger font.

  2. Ensure the address on your CV is the same with the location of the job. It will make interviewers consider you faster. e.g, if the job is in Lagos, apply with a Lagos address. If you don't stay in the same location, look for someone you know that use same location.

  3. Don't use childish email address. Use an email address with your name. Don't use email address such as sexybecky4u2luv@gmail.com. It says a lot about your maturity and professionalism. You can use michaeljacobs@gmail.com or michael.jacobs@gmail.com. If the name is already taken, add some numbers, e.g michaeljacobs236@gmail.com

  4. Under personal data or profile. Some entities like date of birth, state, local government and nationality are not compulsory. As a matter of fact, if the age they need doesn't favour you, just take off your date of birth. Keep the interviewer in doubt. Rather sell your skills.

  5. Under educational background and dates, simply write your school, your course of study and then the year you graduated. Take off the year you got admission. Some people started school in 2005 and graduated in 2012 for a 4-year course. It might not be their fault but employers wouldn't take it that way since you're not there to defend it. So I repeat, write out only graduation year.

    Also, there's no need for your grade (First class, 2.1, 2.2, etc). Just take it off.

  6. Professional Certification is another area that's making people lose out of job search in recent times. Under this section, most people don't have what to put and it pisses off most employers. It means you haven't done much to add value to yourself. If you are a Corp member here, try to do one or two professional course during your service year, else you will be submitting what we call a blank CV'. For those working, you can use your weekends to achieve same. It will help you in your next job search.

    Under your work experience, you are expected to state where you worked, your job designation and your responsibilities. If you are no longer working in the firm, write your responsibilities in past tense. The current place of work can be written in present tense.

However, all your work experiences need not go on your CV except the one relates to the job you're applying for. it makes your CV concise.

** Under you hobbies and interest, you need to be careful of your choices. I once saw a CV that has playing video games as the applicant's hobby. I quickly discarded the CV. Your hobbies should be within researching, meeting people, playing scrabble or chess, mentoring and travelling. But be sure you are into the hobbies as it could be placed before you one day.

  1. Under your referees or references, please you are expected to have your referees name, address, phone number and email address. You can also use your family member as your referee but ensure you don't use the same surname. Also, ensure your referees are aware you are using them as referees to avoid stories that touch.

  2. An ideal CV should be in black and white not coloured except on two occasions: if you are applying as a graphic designer and you want to wow your employer or when your CV has the logo of the company you've worked before under your job experience.

  3. Never forward a CV from your inbox to another employer. Open and compose a fresh mail then upload your CV and send

  4. When sending your CV, make sure the

    subject carries the job role you are applying for.

  5. Don't save your CV on your laptop or phone as 'My CV' or Edited CV'. Simple save it with your full name, e.g Adebayo Michael Samuel.

  6. When sending your CV, don't leave the email page blank. Copy your cover letter and post on the email page. Forget the usual 'Sir, kindly find attached herewith for your .

  7. You don't need to append your passport photo on your CV except the employer request for it which is quite rare.

We will continue with a cover letter later. If looks like another boring lecture to you. Maybe it is, but it is important.

In a bit for bloggers to get more traffic and attention, many have mis represent the truth about NYSC 2020.

Give graduate what they want, a made up story, some even come up with their own Orientation Date, that make NYSC to reply this rumours and fake news with a disclaimer;

"Management wishes to emphatically clarify that the advertorial did not emanate from the Scheme. It is the handiwork of fraudsters, purposed to mislead the public, with extortion of Prospective Corps Members (PCMs) as the end point.

It is imperative to state that the Scheme is yet to release the dates for the activities. There are processes to observe, in conjunction with the Scheme's major stakeholders before the dates are announced.

Assuredly, once the activities are scheduled, the public shall be duly notified through advertorials in both the print and social media."

To be continued in the comment session, becos of this reason we advocate for a open community and communication system.

Following the recent making the rounds that the Corps Member who was reported to have committed suicide was serving in Kogi State, the Coordinator of NYSC in the state, Mr. Lasaki Taofic has described it as a false and misleading.

The Coordinator made this known through a press release made available to Accurate Newspaper through the the Assistant Director, Press and Public Relations, Rev. Tayo Adedapo.

Part of the press release read “Report that reached the NYSC Kogi Secretariat from Enugu NYSC said one Miss Princess Maturayo Bolufenu a serving corps member with them, of Kogi State origin has committed suicide after drinking two bottles of snippers in Enugu. However, the on- line report of THE TRIBUNE NEWS PAPERS gave a mixed up of the story.
Moturayo died in ENUGU not Kogi. Moturayo’s place of service – Enugu not Kogi.
Moturayo’s state of origin is KOGI.
Please disapprove the on-line edition of the sad story which portrayed Moturayo place of service as Kogi, thank you”.

The Coordinator however describe the death of Moturayo as painful and heartbreaking. He pray that her soul rest in peace.

National Youth Service Corps is a Nigeria scheme that embraces servicom, and has associated with any brand and organisation.

This is the 2nd of this series, if you are yet to check out DG WhatsApp and Phone number click

Communication is premium to an understanding of the people. With NYSC have a more special relationship has it cut across the society, other organisations, government and most especially the youth of the nation.

The question then is;

HOW TO REACH NYSC?

This is need especially in the case of emergency, and urgency. This can not be far fetch, as NYSC as a scheme have a chain of command in which communication is expected to follow.

NYSC CHAIN OF COMMAND

This post is not meant to break those chain of getting your concern known to your LGA inspector, to the Zonal Inspectors, to the State Secretariat, and maybe to the Headquarters.

But you will agree with me that not all concerns can and should be allow to pass through this various chain. Especially in case where the immediate chain command cannot solve the issue.

This now take me to what are the

As holiday goes off. Corpers that have leave their duty post need to go back to their respectively PPA

NYSC 2020 is finally here,
my message is for the NYSC 19 C relocated or those of them yet to have PPA

Even while looking for PPA (place of primary assignments) to stay close to a Corpers Lodge which is usually around the NYSC state secretariat or LGA secretariat. Don't just expect everyone PPA or area you are sent to to accept you, after all it is just once but be prepared.

Let me share a story that happened to a PCM in May 2016, while in this same job hunt. I saw it online recently

"Obeying The Clarion Call In Untold Agony

It was just like an horror scene from a scary movie, stumbling on a body snoring away on a pedestrian bridge few metres away from Kubwa Garage.

As if that was not enough, the snoring fellow was gorgeously cladded in the highly revered NYSC outfit. Upon waking him up, the horror story he narrated will exhaust several pages.

Is it not unfathomable that fresh graduate of one of Nigeria's Ivory Tower has been rendered homeless in the course of serving his fatherland? To further add salt to his injury, he was outrightly rejected by the government parastatal he was posted to for no concrete reason.

To further exacerbate his predicament, the unfortunate young Nigerian graduate is battling with pneumonia This is to serve as a wake up call to our policy makers to holistically review the NYSC Acts. Also, as a short term solution, we hereby call upon every well meaning Nigerian to come to the aid of Abuja corp members before the untold stress impinged on innocent corps members exceeds yield point."

As 2020 NYSC Mobilization approaches.

There is need to clarify the overview of the way NYSC Mobilizes Prospective Corps Members or better put graduating students.

The question many graduating students have is

How am I sure that I will go with this Batch?

This is not a problem, usually if you are graduate of a CPI

What is CPI?

Corp Producing Institutions.

Then you are eligible to be mobilize for NYSC provided you are below the age of 30. In which if you are above you will be given exemption letter, which is significantly equal to an NYSC discharge certificate.

Another question ask by graduate is

How can I serve if I am above 30 yrs?

I receive these questions often. But truth be told it can be influenced, but if I am directly in charge of such influence. I wouldn't do it for anybody.

If you are above 30 yrs go and start your life, which is in your hands. Not thinking of putting another constraint that comes with the service of our fatherland.

Back to our primary discussion,

How many time do NYSC mobilize in a year?

NYSC mobilisation is often done in 3 (three) Batches. Which Batch B and C having 2 streams. Which is another opportunity to be mobilized.

Therefore in 2020, every graduate have a chance of reporting to camp for orientation and mobilisation from their institution about 5(five) times. Relax make a good use of the opportunities and you can be patient and prepare well for it.

Note this is not a BLOG but a house for corpers, therefore you can ask your questions, by replying.

You can share your NYSC stories and experience too, and let someone learn from it.

The 20th day of December, 2019 was a very special day for me as I was awarded a First Class Honors, Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) degree in Accounting, Federal University of Technology Akure.

To the glory of God, I entered FUTA on 3rd of December 2015 as an undergraduate. I had a four man squad and we all strived to be successful. In a nutshell, first semester result 100 level result was out and it happened that I had the lowest GPA of 3.80 in the squad. I was so disheartened that I had the lowest GPA and I was a bit happy that I didn't scored too low despite my political office as NUASA pioneer General Secretary (with Aluta-P led executive) and my position as the National President, Jnr/Int RAN. I informed a brother, Bosun Egberinde of the situation at hand and he encouraged and motivated me to keep moving and aim high.

Second semester 100 level result was released, I had 4.44 (was so annoyed because I had a C in CSC102, a three unit course which hindered my chance of making a first class that semester). I will never forget, a friend out of the 4 man squad who made a statement that struck a cord in me, he actually had a 'B' in a 4 unit course and he was like, "if ordinary BBM could have an 'A' BIO 102, then he should definitely have more than that" (with the impression that he is far better than me). This drove me high and mad

200 level first semester, I started reading for an average of 8 hours in a day and once read for 16 hours on a stretch. Guess what, I had a 5.00 that semester.

We were two that actually had the 5.00 then and that was the first of its kind in Accounting and the faculty, SMAT (except IT report) according to history. I was so amazed because in 4 of 9 of the courses, I had 70 -72 (A). (Isn't God faithful?). The news went viral throughout the faculty and we became the talk of the devil for a while.

Not to bore you with this long story, Second semester 200 level, I had 4.67. I actually spent my lecture free week at a National camp ☹. God is good!

First Semester 300 level, I had 4.63; was scared of dropping because I started my professional exam ICAN-ATS in that semester and officially launched my enterprise, BBM WORLD (Graphics Design).

Second semester 300 level, only had 11 days to prepare for school exam due to my second stage of my professional exam, but guess what, I made a 5.00 as well . First Semester 400 level, again, I made a 5.00. It was a back to back, hit to hit . Should I burst your burble? I wasn't in school in the first week of exam, I was in Lagos for my ICAN-ATS induction, also represented the university in an inter-university competition (Annual Conference for Accountant at JABU) yet, God did it. And in the last semester, 400 level second semester, I had 4.88 (a 3 unit course actually hindered me from having a 5.00 for the fourth time. I had a 'B' ☹.

However, I bless God because only 6 out of about 95 students had an 'A' in a 6 unit project and I was honoured to be among them. Also represented FUTA at an inter-university summit or competition at OAU in October which lead to a competition/teasing between OAU and FUTA (#OAUvsFUTA on tweeter). I and my team made them know that FUTA is the best!.

Today, I graduated as the 5th best graduating student in the department of Accounting with a CGPA of 4.68 from 3.80 of 5.00 scale.
I am a true product of Grace.

Charge: In whatever thing you do, strive to be the best. Yes, the best!

Hello,
I am Aishat, a Batch C stream 1 Corp member. I have been getting some questions, people are interested to know more about Borno, serving there and many more so I decided to give updates about my experience so far and throughout my stay there.

These are going to be personal experiences which might differ from others(no one should come and start expressing how bitter they are at the comment section) lol and also if there are questions anyone want to ask if I have answers to them,I'll do the needful and answer in the best of my knowledge.
So I'll do a flashback and a summary of the first two weeks I spent there before I went on break.Enjoy, please I'm just an ordinary human living everyday as best as I can, I make mistakes, correct me don't judge.so let's get started....

Wait lemme attach a picture of me smiling maybe that can inspire someone having a bad day to know that no one has it easy but we have to be strong and hopeful always!

5e0077206887e

We got to Borno in the evening after we left Katsina,we didn't leave the day camp closed but instead the next day because there was every possibility of getting to Borno late and we won't be allowed in once its past the time we can come in,we were like eight buses or more filled with corp members. The Catholics had their logde also the Pentecostal Christians, they alighted while we the few left,(the Muslims) we were told we were taken to our lodge but on getting there I found out that was a general logde(the state lodge as it is called) they were Batch B corp members occupying the place already.I had a very stressful journey and was seriously hungry but the food that was given to us made me totally lost appetite (atleast they offered us food).
We were given two mattresses temporarily though we were three female corp members and was told to try and do with that because these mattresses were borrowed, the one's to be given to us wasn't ready.I realised by then that my travelling bag (echolas box) was left at the place we first dropped some persons, I couldn't cry I needed to change my wears and everything was in there, we were not told before we realized how much the mosquitoes there were but still my net wasn't here,I was feasted terribly on,I couldn't sleep with their noise and was just praying for morning to come, my first night was really a bad one.
This state lodge are flats and were occupied by some footballers I guess the state footballers so they got another place for them and decided to give us the place and mind you the accommodation is said to be available to those serving under the state parastatal though not everyone working under the state government is staying there, some working with the ministries too etc.The medical students lodge is different from ours,but side by side each other with a fence demarcating it, theirs (the medical students)is just a room self contain while ours (non medical students) was a flat with two rooms kitchen bathroom and toilet,in these rooms,two to three persons per room while the parlour was three person's in it,mattresses would be given to us,while we get the other needed stuffs for the room ourselves,and also for the medical students they were two to three in their various rooms.
To be cont'd.
Thanks for reading.

You can share your NYSC story and experience too, and let someone learn from it.

I came across the letter by Sunday 15th, the first copy is below. On Corp Member best and number one platform

5df9ccfa546a8
This is the joke, and right away I know this it can't be it must have be cooked up by jobless corp members who hate and can't negotiate for a leave in their PPA.

Let us do simple analysis.

  1. The Telegram channel is wrong, and NYSC we not have put any Telegram link there.
  2. Let us ask yourself simple question if it is true how can a letter carrying Lagos letterhead have DG signatures, his he the state coordinator.
  3. Why should NYSC ever use a mail in a letter that is not working. The web mail is just invalid.

Just to point out a few things thou. While later to make the obvious more interesting, Lagos state secretariat release a denial of such letters

5df9d04beaa73

NYSC also released a disclaimer of such letters, what a joke If you are a Corp member, you can ask for a travel leave check out for the Format Letter
