Let me share with you sectors that Badly Need Social Media Marketing Professionals

You know there are many fields that require Social Media skills.   

Let’s see what they are..   

Any type of organisation needs skilled Social Media skills

Too many old people, unskilled and unqualified in the CIVIL SERVICE who read the same degrees as yours BUT aren’t able to match up with the skills required in these agencies.   

The system is gradually weeding away these unskilled workers.   

So why would the govt replace  old unskilled workers with young unskilled workers?   

This is the secret. 

That is why so many people are unemployed in Nigeria   

Not because there no jobs   

It is because the skills are not available   

Universities are NOT producing Skilled Graduate.   

This is why the Nigeria Student Center under the auspices of the British School of Outdoor Education conducted a research with the leading recruiters of Nigeria Graduates.   

More so, that our staff participates in the recruitment exercise of Nigerian students into Management Positions   

The outcome of the research reveals:

  • Huge skills shortages  
  • Huge gap between academic qualifications and the employable skillset required by organisations  
  • Additionally, huge cost of re-skilling students
