google-charts

It’s no longer news that it’s extremely hard to live in Nigeria now.

The poverty rate and the high rate of unemployment has brought our country down to it knee.

Even inflation in terms of food prices is at climax. Increase in food prices have gone from worse to worst coupled with the crisis in our food planting states.

Fathers are now losing their jobs due to the fact that companies can no longer pay them. Even those working for the government are being owed salaries and those that have retired can’t rely on pension.

 What about the Body of Entrepreneurship in Nigeria?


Let’s not even go there.

Social amenities like power (light), good roads, and pipe borne water are not encouraging these small businesses to grow (isn’t it worse if barbing salons in Nigeria spend half of their profit on fueling their generators).

Manufacturing companies are the worst. Their cost of production has sky rocketed that what they now produce for customers (Nigerians) has shrink to baby size.

And to cap it all the people we voted for say we are lazy Nigerian youths. Anyways, it’s not hard to read between the lines.

Till today, there’s still a serious battle on whether it is truly the unavailability of infrastructure that is causing Nigerian youths not to be create business or whether it’s just that we are lazy and are only bothered about today’s food and how to dance shaku shaku.

But seriously I have met had hard working Nigerians, youths who have almost gotten their brains fried all in the name of finding permanent solutions to Nigeria’s problem.

These youths just have never give up attitude that sometimes make me think if they are really from this world or they are just angels.

I’m very sure you’re very tired of the unemployment rate in Nigeria and you just want something that can make you money as a student that’s why you are reading this article now.

Well, better late than never even though what I’m about to share with you now I wished I knew them long ago when I was 19 or 20 and there was internet abundant internet.

Probably I’ll have been a millionaire now.

Just maybe…

So, first, before we go into these online jobs available in Nigeria let’s go into what we’ll be needing to be able to do these online jobs.

Things to Have Before Starting Online Jobs in Nigeria


A Smart Phone

Yeah, you’ll basically need a smart phone because you’ll need a phone that can do many things at once. A phone that can send mails, read blogs, apply for jobs, browse the social media and so on.

Another reason you’ll need a smart phone is the duration you’ll get in terms of battery life. Although this can also depend on the brand of phone you buy and it’s specs.

Internet

Yes, like one of my friends will say “a phone without internet is like eating white rice without stew and a big meat”. Truth be told, he’s absolutely right here. Asides from the fact that you’ll need a smart phone, you also need internet.

Now, the fact that I said you’ll need internet on your phone doesn’t mean you should go for any mobile network. We all know how funny mobile networks can be in Nigeria and we know the ones that always have issues.

It’s best is for you to make your findings first before you choose the network that will provide you internet but also know this, the quality of network on your phone entirely depends entirely on where you stay in Nigeria.

A power bank

This is not compulsory if you have constant power supply in your area or your school but for those of us whose light is not constant you’ll need to get a powerbank of at least 6600mAh to boost your phone at least till power comes. This option will help you more on the go especially when it comes to customers reaching you.

A Good Laptop with Long Battery Life
                       
This not also important except if of cus the kind of job you’re going to be doing online demands the use of a laptop. You’ll understand what I mean by this as we go on in this post.

Please don’t forget I said you need a laptop with good battery life. You don’t want to be like a customer friend of mine who losses work on his system when power holding take the light.

OK, let me stop at this because you might not really connect with this until it happens you.

Wisdom and Patience

This point is my last point because it’s the baba of it all (the most important).

I said this because even if you have 15 laptops, 5 smart phones and a 7g network on your phone and you don’t have wisdom combined patience on this journey, you will lose it all. And I guess you know what all that means, waste of resources and waste of time.

One thing I’ve noticed among us youths in general in Nigeria is we are no longer intrigued by wisdom.

It’s like our brain has been whipped with hypo.

black-people

What we are now bothered about or should I say what most of us are now bothered about is who Davido is currently dating and the last baby mama Wizkid had. Don’t get me wrong here, I’m not saying Nigerian youths are lazy, I’m just saying we no longer seek wisdom and patience like before.

This thing I’m talking about now has spread to almost all industries youths are involved in. You read some Nigerian blogs and all you see is plagiarism or a below standard article.

What about art?

It’s also easy to spot laziness and impatience there except for a few.

Please if you know you really want to last on these online jobs I’m about to introduce to you, you need wisdom. The successful people sort wisdom first above every other thing that’s why they are where they are today.

What about patience?

Don’t give up easily even if you’ve been trying and all efforts have not paid. Push harder, think harder, work harder and seek professional advice if you’re on the journey of giving up.

Enough said…

Now, let’s go into it right away…

Online Jobs for Nigerian Students that You Don’t Know About


Blog Post Editor

Are you an avid reader?

Do you like to write short articles for local school?

Are you familiar with Sentences and the way they should be constructed?

This is for you.

Now, since this is your first time doing this job online I’ll advice you read up on how to edit a blog post online just to fine tune your editing skills before you jump right into it. It’s also good to start with small blogs as a layer. This is like training on the job before finally starting.

Do this and then when you’re finally done you won’t need to dig round the internet before costumers will start looking for you.

Freelance writer

This is quite different from blog post editor. Although I have seen students do the 2 side by side, I’ll say you stick with one especially if you’re just starting out.

What is a Freelance Writer or who is a Freelance Writer?


A freelance writer is a writer who writes for anyone, publishing companies, blogs, and individuals with the sole purpose of getting a reward either monetary or favor.

So if you’re an excellent writer. This is for you.

And please don’t forget to read up online on the latest info on being a powerful freelance writer so you can sound fresh and stand out from the rest.

Blog Designer

I must say here that this particular job needs hands on experience. So you must have to learn the coding of HTML, CSS before you can start. You can learn how to do this by googling some videos on how to code.

Also you’ll need to start a demo WordPress and blogger blog to practice out what you’ve learnt.

You see? This is why I said you need patience on these jobs.

C.V Developer/Constructor

This will work perfectly for you if you have doing it offline before coming online. You see one of the things people are lazy about these days is to sit down and type. Especially typing something and putting it in a unique manner.

All you need to do here is to advertise yourself on social media and offer to construct C.V for friends at an unbeatable price. If you do this well, they will introduce your specialty to their friends and the circle keeps going.

Please I’ll advise here that you really know your gut around this particular job. You won’t want people sending you DMs that they will gun you down all in the name of they lose a job due to your negligence.

You don’t want that!

Social Media Marketer

This job is the simplest and the most common of it all and the most amazing thing is you don’t need any experience to do it.

In this job, all you have to do is manage your employer’s social media accounts and increase its followers.

Although the demand of this particular job varies, some want you to just manage their accounts while others want you to increase their followers; it all leads to the same thing.

You just need to know what the customer want and deliver and you will be paid handsomely if the job is well done. By the way, it’s also possible that you don’t know how to do this. Please don’t feel like Johnny just come, just Google how to do it and follow every tip to the core. Then practice with your social media accounts before starting out.

Graphic Designer for Blogs

And last but not the least graphic designer. This job is sell-able on the internet because most blogs take branding seriously. If you don’t know how to start but you have the passion, you can watch some tutorials on the internet and practice.

Don’t forget practice does it. Practise, practise, practise and be persistent.

Conclusion

Truly Nigeria is hard but there are jobs out there. You just need to search for them and learn how to do them before starting out and before you know it you will start making money that can take care of your education and even provide out needs and wants.

Please share this post with your friends especially those you feel has given up on finding a job as an undergraduate.
