How To Get Job as a Graduate With 2.2 or 3rd Class Degree
All job offers comes with requirements and one of the common requirement is a “minimum of Second Class Upper Division”. What happens to majority of Nigerian graduates who graduated with Second Class Lower or even below that.
1.Exclude your Degree on your CV:
From experience, only very few conglomerates and multinational companies are very strict about their 2.1 requirement. If you hoping to enter any organization on merit then I will advise you never put your class of degree on your CV so you can be invited for interview and make sure your CV is very professional without typos or blunder.
2. Do not feel inferior:
In an interview, no matter the class of your degree never ever feel inferior my dear, all you need to do is to prove to them that you will add more value to them than any other person. I want you to know that some organisations do not discriminate on your class of degree, it’s just about adding value and increasing their worth- banks, insurance, customer care, manufacturing etc. Don’t despair if you don’t get invited just keep applying and get some certification relating to your field.
3. Skill Acquisition:
If you have a 2:2 then you should work on acquiring relevant skill to backup your result. Believe it or not most organizations now believe in skills rather than certificates.
4. Get your Masters Degeree:
The truth is that in Nigeria or all over the globe there is no guaranty for any class of degree of getting a job offer, even if you have B.Sc from the best university. Your degree only gives an you an edge over others, obtain a professional
