This is a time when the rate of youth unemployment is on the rise in Nigeria. Competition to get a job with a decent salary has even increased more than ever before among young graduates. Thus, a university degree is not enough anymore. Students and young graduates who have a wide range of skills and experiences beyond academics are the most sought-after of today’s employers.

According to a research article in The Atlantic, “experiences outside of academics: Internships, jobs, volunteering, and extracurriculars are at the top of the list when hiring a recent graduate.” It is therefore ever more particularly important to explore the various opportunities and trainings available, and make the most of your university education.

Consider Anna, a young student like you, who was offered a full-time position at McKinsey & Company before she even graduated. Thanks to the diverse engagements in the range of extracurricular experiences she had during her undergraduate studies. She was also opportune to attend the exclusive Girls20 conference in Australia, a study trip to San Francisco, and a paid internship at P&G in Switzerland.

Or let’s take Viola for example, another student, who also engaged herself in various internship and extracurricular activities during her studies, thereby landing a job offer at Apple after graduation. Well, these are just two of the many success stories of young people who started to build their successful careers from the very first day of their university studies.

You may have been wondering, what is the secret of Anna, Viola, and other students who got to secure job offers and can choose their career, as opposed to millions of other students who are part of the unemployed lot in the stats, especially in Nigeria? Did they have privileged backgrounds and families, and connections providing them all those kinds of opportunities?

Of course not. Their success secret is HeySuccess.com – the secret used by the most successful young people today and the key to opening so many doors of the golden opportunities. HeySuccess is the choice of high-achieving and thriving students because it offers three key profiles elements for their career development and personal success:

  1. Tens of thousands of global opportunities in over 180 countries, including internships, scholarships, graduate positions, student conferences, and competitions.
  2. Helpful resources, application tips, and webinars produced by professional HR experts and other successful graduates.
  3. A global network of the most extraordinary young people and recruiters from all over the world.
