Do you know that you make money online if you can create, manage and monetize a Job Blog? Yes, it’s true because of large numbers of job seekers in the world.
Come to think of it…
It’s a bad news to hear that over 60% of Nigerian and job seekers…
But it’s a good news for smart job seekers who can make a living from lack of jobs.
It sound weird right? Sure!
If you are a job seeker, you can create a job for yourself by creating and managing a job blog here in Nigeria.
There is no need to ask if this business is creative. This is because the population of job seekers are increasing everyday.
Government are busy creating jobs in the news but non is available in the labour market.
The few available jobs are then rushed by millions of jobless graduates. Imagine the massacre that happened during Immigration Service recruitment in 2014 which left many people dead in search of jobs.
Forget the scenario above, I was only trying to make an emphasis. What I mean is that there are more job seekers than jobs in Nigeria. This has created a lot of rush in this niche in such as way that…
Desspite the huge competition and the availability of the big players in the likes of jobberman.com, ngcareers.com, hotnigerianjobs.com, joblistnigeria.com, even new bloggers in this niche still have chance to make money from it.
When I discovered this, I think it’s high time that graduates began to stop waiting for white collar jobs.
Okay! Do it this way instead… while you wait for the job do something else that you think it’s lucrative.
Yes… Do something.
In fact, create a job blog. This could help you to find more job openings and at the same time could bring you money.
Yes, managing a job blog can make you to find more better jobs for yourself or friends. You may even become a hiring officer for companies and recruiters. Could you imagine this?
After a while, you could then decide whether to work any job or not. Like me, I will not like to work any job because I think my time is so precious. Again, being a free-range animal, I like free movement and I hate being tied-down to one place.
That’s why you may need need to start a job blog if you are a job seeker.
Are you now ready to create a job blog? If yes, let’s start…
It’s actually simple to get it done with few steps. You may need a little investment to actualize this.
I am going give you a run down of everything you need to create, manage, grow and monetize your job blog to the level you can make money from it.
