  1. @Damilola @Adesina Your attitude is exactly the reason why there is no work. This HELP US and TEACH US attitude. Every company is understaffed and always looking for workers. The question is, do you have the required skill??? Companies don’t usually invest in skills training, are they training institutes? If they had the manpower to teach, why will they hire for a position that they already have someone with enough time to work and teach? Go and get highly demanded skills!!! A Masters or PhD in machine learning or robotics or data science is an instant employment.

  2. Nigerian youths in construction need more of CSR from these companies, they should try to organize internship programs for us to learn and advance ourselves.
