The average Nigerian graduate stumbles through processes just because he has to. In high school, only a handful of students have access to career counsellors who can guide them at the early stages of choosing prospective careers.
University education is mostly a next logical step with most people picking their majors without all the necessary considerations. Shielded from the realities of a cutthroat employment market, the average Nigerian graduates from the University with all the wrong notions.
He is quickly confronted with a few realities.
Work Experience is the most useful commodity out here, however as we now live in the digital age, being equipped to not just survive but thrive in a digital economy becomes paramount to career success.

A lot of job seekers try to circumvent this problem by applying for Masters programs and professional certifications but they become over qualified with no practical work experience.
Two years in, they are armed with more certifications than experience, the problem persists.
