Problem with Fresh Graduates Not Getting Job Faster – How to Fix It!

Actually the problem with fresh graduates not getting job faster is that they don’t have enough practical knowledge in university, so in time of recession they suffer due to limited knowledge. Sometimes after your undergraduate degree also some students lack soft skills for a particular job due to absence of appropriate experience.

Most of the companies don’t want to spend huge sum of money to train fresh graduates. So an undergraduate student should set his goal at the beginning of his career and work accordingly to develop the required skill set needed for industry. Students can apply to companies accepting I.T students for hands-on experience. Doing this will help in creating more employable candidates.

Industrial Training

Below I have outline  6 Best Companies for Industrial Training in Nigeria, and in case you need assistance on how to go about applying to these companies for I.T placement let me know in the comment box or contact me at [email protected]
