NCAT Zaria Denies Sacking of 37 Teachers

The authorities of the Nigerian College of Aviation Technology (NCAT), Zaria has denied sacking 37 teachers from its staff school.
NABTEB Extends Registration Deadline For 2018 May/June Exam
According to the Media head of NCAT, Mr. Jude Amadi, who made the denial in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Lagos, the management only acted in accordance with a directive from the Salaries, Incomes, and Wages Commission.

It was reported that some aviation unions, namely; the National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE), Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (ATSSSAN) and the National Association of Aircraft Pilots and Engineers (NAAPE), recently petitioned the Federal Government, alleging that the NCAT sacked 37 teachers.

The NCAT spokesperson said: “There was a circular from Salaries, Incomes, and Wages Commission which stopped government institutions from using government budget to pay teachers in their staff schools.
“In adherence to the directive, we handed over the running of the school to a consultancy.

“We asked the teachers to transmit to being employees of the consultant, and an agreement was reached.

“Some of them accepted, and have since continued with the consultancy.

“Therefore, using the word sack is wrong because they were not sacked.”

He said that a ruling by the National Industrial Court on the case only ordered that such teachers should transfer their services to the Ministry of Education and earn salaries as other teachers in government institutions.

According to him, the process is still ongoing...

University of Ibadan- Parents Rejects Accommodation Fee Increment

Majority of the parents at a stakeholders meeting held on Tuesday to discuss the new fee regime introduced by the management of the University of Ibadan (UI) rejected the N30,000 hostel accommodation proposal.
Recall that the UI management had called the meeting over what it called “slight increment” for halls of residence and the Alexander hall for students of the College of Medicine.

The institution’s Senate had recommended a hike in hostel accommodation fee from N14,000 to N30,000 for students on the main campus and N40,000 for those in the College of Medicine effective from the 2017/2018 session.

The premier institution said that it currently spends about N100million every year in providing hostel accommodation, arguing that this was no longer sustainable

Majority of the parents in their separate remarks, however, said while they were not objecting to increment due to the current economic realities, the proposal by the institution was unacceptable.

Mr. Fashina Olusegun, a parent, said while upgrading facilities as being canvassed by the institution was good, the new fee regime was high.

Also speaking, Merssers  Robert Obiora, Ayo Akinyemi, and Michael Odunrounmbi, agreed that while tertiary education was being underfunded,  the university management must ensure that its fees were affordable.

Some students in a peaceful protest at the hall also asked the management to reconsider its recommendations.

The Vice-Chancellor of the university, Prof. Idowu Olayinka, had earlier stated that the institution “is at a point where it is difficult to continue to subsidize the running of the halls of residence and carry out some other academic functions.’’

“This cannot be feasible without a slight adjustment in accommodation charges and in some fees items payable by students in some faculties,’’ he said.

He said only the increase in accommodation fee  affected all students who desire to stay in the halls of residence, adding that  “residency in the halls of residence is optional.’’

Olayinka said only 8,222-bed spaces were available for the over 27,000 students, adding that the university is not fully residential.

“The hostel accommodation is for the first and final year students,” he said.

JAMB Explains Why Candidates Results On Its Portal was Removed

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said the 2018 Unified Tertiary University Examinations (UTME) candidates who could no longer access their results even after seeing it initially might have had their results withheld.
JAMB Explains Why Candidates Results On Its Portal was Removed

This was disclosed by the boards head of media., Fabian Benjamin, in an interview with newsmen.

It was gathered that some candidates have earlier decried the removal of their released results from the website of the Board, after initially accessing it.

The candidates complained that all they now see when they try to check their results are, “You do not have any result yet” or “you did not write the examination,” after such results were earlier published.

According to Mr. Benjamin, the board may reschedule the examinations for some whose cases are exceptional and such candidates will be contacted before then.

He explained that the board was still working to release other results.

Mr. Benjamin also enjoined those who intend to change their choice of institutions before the 2018/19 admissions process begins, to visit the board’s site and follow the procedure as displayed.

He said the process has been ongoing and costs N2, 500 only and can only be processed online, just like every other process of the board.

Top 10 Essential Tips to Note About Getting a Job In Nigeria

A lot of undergraduates end up being frustrated before or while looking for jobs, below are ten important facts to note. Ensure to read to the last bit of this article and take action.
Top 10 Essential Tips to Note About Getting a Job In Nigeria
FACT 1

*1. Waiting to be done with NYSC before you begin to seriously apply for a job is one of the greatest mistakes you ever want to make.*
This is one mistake many of us make or are about to make. You may nearly slap yourself if you wait till then. In fact, before you finish NYSC you should have applied for at least 20 jobs and attended at least 2 interviews, that’s the mindset of a serious job seeker. Except you have a job waiting for you somewhere.

FACT 2

*2. If you made a 2:2 or third class, you are in a more competitive market and so you may need a super strategy to stand out.*
This is because the job market is saturated and so one way many employers try to streamline the number of applicants is by stating that they need 2:1 or first class only.
This should not be a source of worry but should be a reason why you have to up your game. You need to go for additional training that is relevant (mark the word relevant), add some more skill, make your CV on point and all your applications superb! You can’t have a 2:2 and you are applying with different first class and 2:1 and you won’t do something different. You just have to stand out to improve your chances. Also, you should apply in more places to increase your chances.
I will tell us two real-life stories. Are we following?
Have you heard of this man called Tony Elumelu? I heard a story about him. Tony Elumelu graduated with a 2:2. His first banking job. The requirement was a first class or 2:2. But he still applied. Tony Elumelu applied but added a cover note, explaining why he felt he was still qualified despite graduating with a 2:2. Guess what? He was hired!

I tell you the story of a friend of mine. The person is with a top multinational company right now. She made a 2:2 but contacted me before applying for the job. I gave her some advice, helped her with a "wow" CV and prepared her for the interview. The day she went for the interview, all the interviewers kept commending her CV that they forgot to look at her grade. She was moved to the next stage of the interview. By this time, they had dropped some candidates. She was called again for a second interview, this time around with the top managers. She was scared. Again, they started praising her CV. Asking her questions and commending her. At the tail end, that was when one of them saw the grade. They were like, you mean you finished with a 2:2? She said yes. Then she explained why. Because she was honest and had already won their hearts, guess what! Weeks later, she was called to resume work! This again is a fact many graduates and job seekers don't know!

FACT 3

*3. You don’t always need to know anyone to enter a company*
I don't know where most young people got this mindset from. They just conclude that all jobs can only be gotten by a connection. I want to ask you a question. If you owned a company and you want that company to really grow. As in, you really want it to move forward. Say the truth would you like to hire all your employee based on connection? Wouldn't you want to use common sense to ensure that you have 1..2..3..4 who are really really qualified? Because if all workers were employed by connection it means the company will crumble. It means they are not looking for skill. And you know what that means.. the company will fall!!!
So because they know this, they can't keep giving all the jobs by connection. There is a place for skill, for those who are truly qualified. So the big question is...Are you among the few qualified?

FACT 4

*4. Getting into a company or organization is one thing, how you get in is another thing.*
This point is very crucial, please follow carefully!
The route via which you enter a company goes a long way to determine your salary, your future prospects in that company, your promotion or even the benefits you will be entitled to.
Its one thing to be working in shell or Mobil or Total, but the big question is how did you enter? You entered as what?
Have you heard of any of the following terms: Graduate Management Trainee, Technical Trainee, Contract Staff, Intern, Outsourcing?
Let me explain further taking the routes I mentioned above one after the other.
Do you know that the best way to enter a multinational company (MNC) as a young graduate is either as an intern or a graduate trainee?
Let me explain. An *intern* is not yet employed. He/she will be paid but is being trained to work. If they find you competent they can now fully recruit you to become a trainee.
Now if you must enter a company and you want to enjoy the highest benefits, try your best to enter the Management Trainee programme.
Those who eventually become MDs and Head of Departments are those who enter as *Graduate Trainees*.
They are the ones the company likes to send abroad to do one course or the other. They are the ones with the fatter salary. They are the big boys and girls. This is why they are usually few!
The truth is not every one can enter as a graduate trainee, but aspire to do so, there is no harm in aiming big!
A *technical trainee* is usually for all the technical work. They usually like to take HND and OND for these roles. They believe they have the technical knowledge
The only thing is that, they are not paid as much as the Graduate Management Trainee
Then for *contract staff*, that one your salary is smaller. You are on a contract and so your contract can end anytime, and you end up jobless again
*Outsourcing* - The company hires another company to do something for them. so you are working with company A, Shell hired company A on contract. so shell will pay your Company, then your company will pay you.
so you see, I am in shell, I am in shell...The right question is how did you enter shell? And whats your role in shell?

FACT 5

*5. When applying for a job in which you were given an email address to forward your CV, there are seven points you need to note.*
I. Your CV should be in pdf format- it should not be in word document because it can scatter when opened on the other end. Except you were specifically told to send it that way.
II. You should ALWAYS attach a cover letter. Listen to me they may not say it but it’s a secret why they screen candidates out (it should be in pdf too)
III. You must have a subject and the subject should state the position you are applying for.
IV. Your email must not be empty! It’s a sin, many make that mistake. Your email should have a catchy and stimulating body which is similar but more straightforward and direct like the cover letter
V. Your application must have a complimentary close (and optionally a picture which you insert through your email complementary close setting)
VI. You must do a proper search of that company and the role you are applying for.
VII. Try to use a computer not a phone. The greatest error you want to make is having the employer see things like “sent from my Blackberry Z10” or “sent from my tecnoc8”. That shows how lazy you are and how you can’t make the extra effort of applying with professionalism
I have seen a lot of graduates err in this regard. They keep saying they have applied everywhere but they never get called. It is because your application was shabby and not pleasant to your employer.
Fact 6
*Cc vs Bcc*
-How many of us have seen this stuff in our emails?
     -who knows what they are used for?
Okay, let me explain.
Cc stands for "carbon copy." Anyone you add to the cc: field of a message receives a copy of that message when you send it. All other recipients of that message can see that person you designated as a cc: recipient.
Bcc: stands for "blind carbon copy." Anyone you add to the bcc: field of a message receives a copy of that message when you send it. But, bcc: recipients are invisible to all the other recipients of the message including other bcc: recipients.
Now, what is the importance of this knowledge of Cc and Bcc?
Sometimes if you are being referred by someone to apply for a job, you may sometimes need to put the person that referred you in copy to further strengthen your chances. It's more like a referral.
If you want the person you send the application, to know who referred you, you use Cc, if you want to code it you use BBC.

FACT 7

*7. Most of the available jobs are not usually advertised*
No matter how thoroughly you search for job openings on online job portals,  job agencies,  newspapers ads or even on the company's website -  whatever jobs you find that way is only 15 percent of what's available. only 15 percent!!!
That's because 85 percent of jobs are never publicized. This is absolutely true,  and done for good reasons.
The employers try to avoid the painful and costly process of sorting through the thousands of mostly crappy applications that follow any publicized job opening,  so they would rather use other means of hiring the right people that don't require public advertisement.
The fact that you don't see any job openings doesn't mean a company is not hiring. So you can connect directly and can convince the company that you are the right person. You will be hired whether or not any job was advertised.
Again I must say... This doesn't mean jobs are not advertised at all.
Now there are three key people whom, if your CV can just get to them, they have the power to get you employed.
1. Heads of the department, unit or team in which you wish to work
2. The HR Manager
3. The CEO, MD or founder of the company
How then can your CV get to them? There is what they c be targeted emailing.

FACT 8

*8. Doing a Masters immediately after NYSC is very dangerous for some categories of people!*
I know some people want to add something to their 2:2 or to their courses because they may not have studied some kind of courses that are very well appreciated in Nigeria
-But Masters immediately after NYSC is not for everybody.
i. If your family is broke and waiting for you to come and help them out
You would rather take that job, start looking for certifications, then you can sponsor yourself for masters.
ii. If you are like 24 and above, doing a masters immediately may not be advisable. By the time you are done they tell you not more than 26 years old (so you have no job experience, and you have lost on the age side)
-If you must do masters, do your calculations and consultations well. Don’t be a copy copy! Don’t follow the crowd. Understand why you want to do it.

FACT 9

*9. Some of your CVs never get read by the employers*
Some companies use what is called an optimization software to scan through thousands of CVs looking for keywords. Any CV that doesn't have some keywords they are looking for getting trashed.
Only after they finish optimization does a human being now start looking at the CVs remaining one by one.

Finally... FACT 10
*10. Getting a job is a full-time job!*
Allow this point to sink into your head! If you are unemployed right now, you need to employ yourself into a new job called - GETTING A JOB
When something very important to you gets missing in your house, how do you search for it, please?
You check under the table, inside your room, the toilet, u call ur uncle, u-turn everywhere upside down!
is that correct?
So why is it that when its time to look for a job we do it with some lackadaisical attitude?
My dear, Nigeria is hard! To get a job, you have to be violent about it. You have to attend seminars, ask questions, apply here and there..as in let it be serious!
You don't get a job by watching Africa Magic
You don't get a job by going to cinema house every weekend
You don't get a job by knowing all the Telemundo series.
No way! Getting a job is a serious business.
Sentiment apart,
Every recent graduate in the business of getting a job in this era needs:
1. A Good smartphone (no matter how cheap)
