In Nigeria’s labour market or even entrepreneurship scene, the greatest deal of attention is given to academic high flyers – people that made first class and second class upper. Vast majority of companies set first class and 2.1, and in some cases 2.2, as minimum criteria for application in the first place. Less attention is given to people that did not too well in school.
Due to popular demand, JarusHub, Nigeria’s premier career mentoring platform, is organizing a one-day workshop on opportunities for poor-graders – people who did not do too well at the end of their academic programme.
AFTER A POOR GRADE, WHAT NEXT?
The workshop will examine opportunities (whether in corporate world or entrepreneurship space) that can be explored by people that fall into this category.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Graduates with 3rd class, pass or similar grades
Graduates with 2.2 and of low-demand courses irrespective of grade may also attend
Mr. Emmanuel Ewunmi
Mr. Ewunmi had a 3rd class degree in Biology Education (a poor grade in a low-demand course) from the University of Lagos in 1998. Despite this poor grade, he went ahead to become CEO of a consulting firm, a Principal at a top-notch international private school in Lagos, an astute investor in Nigeria’s financial markets and owner of several properties across Lagos. Mr. Ewunmi will be sharing with us his journey to success despite his grade.
Mr. Chukwudi Iwuchukwu
Mr. Iwuchukwu had a Pass degree from the Nigeria Law School in 2013. Undeterred by his grade, he apprenticed with a PR consulting firm and later went ahead to set up his own company which is doing well. He will be telling his story at the workshop.
Although a first class graduate, Jarus is widely regarded as one of Nigeria’s authorities on career case studies. Jarus is the author of the book, The Road to Victoria Island: A Practical Guide to Climbing Career Ladder in Corporate Nigeria. He will be sharing case studies of poor-graders that went on to lead a successful career both in corporate jobs and entrepreneurship.
