Is there any Immediate Opportunities for Female Graduates After NYSC?

Looking at what a female graduate can do after NYSC may be necessary because very many ladies are still not convinced that what a man can do a woman can do better. If you don’t agree, why, after giving you ” ladies are still asking “what can a lady do after serving?”

As far as I’m concerned, ladies, like men can do exactly the same. They can look for jobs, do any kind of business, proceed to postgraduate studies, make money online, and so on. But if you must be attended to as a woman, perhaps I must choose the right tone for you and suggest much more convenient projects or ideas that are feminine in nature.

Without further ado, below is a list of opportunities a lady graduate should consider after NYSC.

1. Further Your Studies

Proceeding to postgraduate studies can be the right choice for you if you’re financially in shape to pursue MSC, PGD, top up degree. You should by now understand that BSC is as common as SSCE back in the 90s. If you must be competitive and relevant in the labor market, you’ll need to consider postgraduate studies.

A lady may not have an edge over a male colleague unless she has something more to show for it.

Students at postgraduate studies
I suggest you consider MSC if you will chase more academic and government jobs, professional courses (such as ICAN, Programming courses, etc) if you will chase private companies, or prefer starting a consulting service.
MSC or Top-up degree should be considered by HND holders. This is the only way you can go head-to-head with BSC counterparts. This is a bitter pill to swallow.Mind you, it will be the best approach if you can further your studies while being on the lookout for any job opportunity or business idea. I explained this better After, women find it more difficult to further their studies after marriage. Consider that in your next decision!

2. Consultancy Services

Women are doing good in consulting services of all kinds. Thank God for this – most graduates are coming from courses that had trained them to be fit for this industry.

Consulting may be as well suitable for want
Marketing, business administration, human resources, event management, accounting consultancies are a few of the services you can venture into. These services may just require renting an office space in a  city in order to be closer to those who will need your services.
During my early days at Lahaola Computers, a lady walked into our café to market her computer maintenance and repair services. We used her services for the time I spent there. In fact, this was a consultant with no physical office. We and a few other clients she had around would just call her when her services were needed.

3. Day Care Services

Women are good at child caring than men – overall. If you think you’re good at child management – especially if you have the relevant qualification in education, this is a go-to service.

Before now, only the busy cities require the services of daycare houses, things have changed lately.

Even very many people around you need someone to babysit their children at a bearable fee. What do you think most schools do with children in KG1 and 2? They only ensure our children are taken care of until we return to pick them up – not necessarily engaging them with academics. Having known that, we still pay them for relieving the kids’ burden.
Daycare services seem natural for women
My boy was enrolled at a daycare house for about two years before we wanted him to proceed to a nursery class. Guess what happened? The lady later started her primary school just because of Raheem. She believed those kids could be taken further to the nursery and primary classes.

She only invited the parents to a meeting where she discussed her plan which was widely accepted and encouraged. You can do this too. Needless to say, we all know where you’re heading if you start this small.



4. Dry Cleaning Services

Bolaji visited me to counsel her on her dry cleaning project. After NYSC, she believed she could make something with a dry cleaning business. I was quick to tell her, it was on a good cause but his friend was reluctant and skeptical about it. The poor friend was of the opinion that the environment was not busy – more people might not need the services.

Well, she could be right. But BJ proved her wrong. How?



This business started. Bolaji only contacted a few church members, teachers, bankers, lawyers, and doctors in town. She had her business cards and gave out flyers for advertisements
