Trying to get a job fast? There are some things that don’t take a lot of time to do that can help you get a job quickly in Nigeria. I’ve heard from job seekers in Nigeria who simply didn’t know some of those things that can help them quickly secure a job.
It may take you a couple of months, it all depends on your level of experience and what you’re aiming to achieve. There are four main steps.
How to Get Your Dream Job Fast
i. Make an inventory of your skill

You need to keep a detailed report of everything you do in this phase.

I guess you’ve gotten the hint. Getting the dream job is more about networking (as the whites call it), we know it as connection.
