How to Apply for Jobs Online in Nigeria

Gone are the days when Wednesday Guardian used to be the  number one Newspaper for job applicants looking for new job opportunities in Nigeria. Gone are the days when a hungry jobless graduate have to struggle to raise N30 to bribe a vendor in other to have a look into the daily newspapers for new job advertisements. Today, you can apply for jobs online in Nigeria without stepping out of your bedroom.

In those days, if you are applying for a job in Lagos from Kaduna, you would have to travel down from Kaduna to Lagos in other to submit your application. Most times, after putting that much efforts and risks, your application letter ends it’s journey in the dustbin.

Jobs application has been made so simple by technology and the internet that you can search for jobs from multiple companies, write your application, upload your CV and submit to many companies at a time. No need to visit the companies until you are called for interview. What a blessed generation!

However, may people are still not yet in tune with this modern trends in jobs application despite that it’s dead simple as long as you can browse the internet. So, How do one apply for jobs online in Nigeria and get called up for interviews without stepping out of his/her bedroom?

1. Locate Job Listing Website – There are many Nigerian websites on the internet that specializes on Job Listing. Some of the bests among them has been listed in one of the article I wrote earlier on How to Get Jobs in Nigeria. Go through the list and select the ones you think you can deal with.

2. Sign up and Upload your Resume – You can sign up with one or more of the job listing websites. The signing up process is simple, just like signing up an email account with Yahoo or Gmail. At the process of signing up, after filling your name and email, you are required to upload your Resume.

3. Start Applying For Jobs – After you have signed up successfully and uploaded your resume, and verified your account, next is to start applying for jobs.

The jobs are listed in categories and thousands of jobs are being added in some of them weekly. Browse job vacancies by categories and select your job based on your qualification. Most of them offers means of writing your application online and that’s the ones I suggest you deal with.

Use the professional editor provided by the job listing site to write your application. Carefully write and rewrite before submitting. Search to as much as you can and submit your applications to them.

You have to pay attention on your profile and the way you write your application. If at any point in time you think your CV need to be rewritten, you can always do that. Do not be in a hurry to submit application, make sure everything is in order, read and reread you application to be sure it is errors free before submitting.
