NYSC Launches Online Job Portal With video CV Feature

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has formally launched a national Curriculum Vitae (CV) bank and online job portal in-order to increase chances for higher education graduates to gain employment easily after youth service.

The job portal is an initiative of the NYSC Skill Acquisitions and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) program which has two major arms, entrepreneurship and employability.

According to SZ Kazaure, Director General, NYSC, this technological advancement in job application is consolidating the achievements of previous administrations and breaking new grounds, as “NYSC is the custodian of the largest pull of fresh graduates and is often visited by recruiters with requests for graduates to fill entry level positions in their organisations.”

Rob Giles, Head, Retail Banking Businesses, Diamond Bank, said that the bank is proud to be a part of this new innovation which will in no small way, make recruitment for fresh graduates much easier.

Giles told BusinessDay that; “Whenever, there is a role for fresh graduates with no experience, we will be posting that on the NYSC portal first before anywhere else.”

“Nigeria has a 60 percent youth population under the age of 25 and about 68 percent unemployment rate, there cannot be enough online portals to handle that and help showcase the youth and the best of their skills to be able to get access to the employable market.

Because of this, we work closely and partner with the NYSC through its SAED program where we have been able to gather great skills and ideas particularly in the area of technology. So this new portal that allows them to further showcase themselves through video is very much encouraged,”

Also speaking at the launch, Omomeme Odike, CEO, Gr8jobs.ng said; “Gr8jobs.ng is proud to be on board as partners because this initiative will speak to other parastatals in the country to take on technology.

NYSC also needs to continue updating and upgrading this system because technology changes continuously and is not static,” Odike said.

Employers will need to register on the nyscjobs.org portal, fill a due diligence form where the company name, vacancy details, contact details and other required fields must be filled and is thereafter open to application by interested and qualified applicants. Request for video CV can also be included in vacancy adverts.
