5 Smart Things Unemployed Graduates Can Do To Survive In any country by Rapmoney from Nairaland.com

The economy of somany countries presently, is not in an enviable condition and we all know that the "street" is not

friendly and it has not been easy with many graduates. Does this mean that one should continue to

wait till a well-paying job comes along? NO!!! Staying idle, doing nothing is not just dangerous but

also risky for any young man or woman in our society today! The language therefore is...Hustle!

Hustle!! Hustle!!!

Many young graduates who thought that life was a bed of roses during their undergraduate or high school days are

now becoming more of realists after being faced with the harsh realities of living without a job in most

developing countries where the citizens hardly enjoy any meaningful welfare package!!!

The truth is that there's nobody out there who doles out money to anyone so you need to get up, dust

your ass and forge ahead! Below are some ways you can earn money as an unemployed graduate in

any Country to take care of your pressing and immediate needs:

1) Freelance property Agent: You do not need a start-up fee or an office for this one. Just liase with

big registered and trusted propery agencies and estate managers by bringing clients such as land

buyers and people looking for accomodation. You can advertise your services via sign-posts or digital

banners, placed in strategic places such as busy street and road junctions; make sure your contacts

are clearly displayed. If any deal clicks, there's a certain percentage you collect from the estate

managers/housing agents based on agreement. You see, you don't even need to move about like

Johnny Walker . All you do is act like a sales person or a middle man that brings the clients to the

agents! It pays!!!

2) Turn Food Vendors on Sundays: It shouldn't surprise you why I advise you turn a food vendor on

Sundays. This is practicable where most shops, restaurants and

business ventures do not operate on Sundays. Have you ever felt badly hungry on Sunday before? I

guess you know how it feels. There are lots of bachelors and spinsters who hardly have time to cook

due to work pressure and others who are just generally too lazy to do that. Cooking assorted types of

food to sell on Sundays can help people who hardly cook. You can position yourself in busy places

that you know you will be easily seen! I tell you today, if your foods taste good and are well-packaged,

you are neat, friendly or jovial, people will patronize you. You can also cook and take to night clubs on

Fridays and Saturdays to sell. Make sure you include the local delicacies in that area to your food

menu. Again, if your foods taste good and well packaged and you are also neat and friendly, people will patronize you!

There's no shame in hustle!!!

3) Customize Shirts and Sell To People: You can also generate income through this means. Buy shirts

in bulk; especially, Golf and Polo shirts and customize them with the names of family members,

friends, neighbours, church members and some notable figures in your neighbourhood who you are

friendly with. When people see their names already crested on the shirts, they won't have any other

option than to buy, especially, when they have the cash. Since you are buying in bulk, you can buy the

shirts for $2- $3 each and sell for $5 or $10 even $25. You can be making a cool profit for every

shirt you sell!!! . Take note that you will pay the person who customizes the shirts but still know it is

cheaper when you customize in bulk!

4) Freelance Marketer: You must not own a business or be a producer before you market things. You

can earn money as a freelance marketer for other people's product and get commission for your

services. You would still have time to focus on other areas of your life since the establishments whose

products you market did not directly employ you so cannot tie you down 24 hrs!!! You can liase with

school owners during long holidays and win students over to their schools through oral personal

adverts and practical demonstrations as new session begins for a particular fee!!! You can work as a

freelance marketer for that boutique too!!!

May God bless the hustle of every graduate out there trying hard to make success and life a

reality even with the intimidating obstacles that seem to abound !!!
