W.E/General / 25 Words Never To Say In A Job Interview by ikoiikenna: 07:23am On 6 Jun
So many people just have too many dream jobs that they keep blowing things up, they know the worth of the job, they know the pay grade and its allowance so well that they are too nervous to even make a pass in an interview, some are too smart even for her potential employer that they just use words that to them is a hammer on the nail but unknowing to then it's another dream job never gotten.

A job interview is basically a general assertion of one capability in nearly all areas of life that is measurable. The use of word plays a vital role, we are often asked the question of how are you?, describe yourself in a sentence etc, this are really really simple English question that a high school student can answer talk less of someone with a college degree. But yet you see many blowing up the opportunity of a million dollar worth job opportunity because of these questions, what's the problem? WRONG USE OF WORDS

To help out I have compiled a list of words though seem right should never be said in a job interview. I will make a list here in our next article I will explain why you shouldn't use them if you intend to score the job.

Money, salary, pay, compensation
Weakness and mistake
Park or benefit
Terrible, horrible, awful
Never use the curse words like Fu--, bi--- etc
Um, so
Divorced, pregnant or sick

Travel / How To Become A Good Travel Photographer by ikoiikenna: 06:27am On 6 Jun
If you remember quite well, we sometimes ago talked about the possible investments you could make and the career paths that you could choose by going into the business of photography, and when we started to narrow things down, we also talked about how you can set up shop as a wedding photographer and make it big in the business. Well, we were not planning to leave other niches on the list hanging as today, we would be talking about how to make money from travel photography.

People are fond of traveling and during the holiday parts of the year most especially, they would go on vacations and holidays either alone or with their family and friends. They usually come back with beautiful shots that they had taken while over there and while you may be amazed by the beauty of the pictures, you could also start earning big by taking up that line of work. Either you wish to build a team of travel photographers or go into the business yourself, below are the steps that you should consider.

1.Conduct necessary research
One thing about business is that it is unique to different individuals. You and your friend might start the same business in the same day and one of you might go on to be more successful than the other in the same time frame, not because the other didn’t put in efforts, but just because it didn’t align with their interests. If you are not confident about travel photography business, the first point of call is to make extensive research on what it really entails and see if it aligns with your interests. If it does, it is the career path for you and you should go on with this.

2. Learn skills
To be a travel photographer, there is a whole repertoire of skills to be learned. The fact that you have been handling the camera for a while does not mean you would excel when taking unique pictures and capturing moments with people and places in it. you need to take up courses to keep you up to date with how to recreate that magical, longing and unforgettable moment with a single shot. You might also need to pick up a language if you would be going out of your region to work sometimes.

3. Join a group/team
Don’t be afraid that you would not find one because they are very many around you if you look closely. Find a team of experienced travel photographers who have a steady workflow and join them. This way, you would get jobs on the regular, get the chance to travel with them and gain some experience and even learn the ropes or when you want to branch out and start yours.

4. Get Traveling Documents
Since you would be working as a travel photographer, you would need to get documents that would aid your passage into the country where you are going to make coverage. The visa, passports and every other document needed by travel agencies should be available because the duty can call anytime.

5. Cover sites in your country
The best way to gain experience is to go on the field. Check out the tourist regions in your own country and cover them. If you are on a team already, you could submit them for grading and assessment to help you get better in the future. This might even be a good reference point later when your clients need to see how proficient you are.

6. Sell your works
If you have been gathering some beautiful and magical pictures of places for a while and you think that your collection would find good application in greeting cards, artworks, and the likes, you should start looking for clients to buy them. Travel magazines, documentaries, review websites and the lot of them are suitable clients to sell your work to.

From the above, you can see that while you would be having fun on the job by getting the chance to go places, you would be making money from the pictures for your clients and also, on collections you gather on the side. What are you waiting for?

Business Ideas / Self Employment Opportunities For Undergraduates by ikoiikenna: 10:30am On 5 May

We now live in a society where the labour market is already congested with little or no space for newcomers. Each year, Institutions of higher learning always push graduates into the already congested labor market.
As a student, you need not depend on the stipends your parents send you on the weekly or monthly basis when you can be gainfully employed, doing your own job and getting some extra cash to keep body and soul together. This is just a fragment of the list of lucrative things you can do as a student of higher institution.

1. Bulk SMS services As students, there is always a need for the fellowship, department, associations, organizations and even the religious bodies to keep in touch with their members. You can run this business without it even affecting your lecture schedules. All you need for this business is a functional bank account, access to the internet and a good communication skill to convince the customer about your pricing. You can start this business with as low as N2, 000.

2. T-Shirt Customization Each semester in school, we see how almost every department/organization (religious or social) will love to have a customized t-shirt as a sign of achievement for that year. As a student, you can go into the art of designing the shirts and receive your pay in no time. If you are really good, you will have to be turning down requests because they will be coming in their numbers. Although this business requires a special skill in the sense that the student will have to be good at graphics design to be able to bring out a good design on the T-shirt but can still make a good cash from this business. The good thing about this business is that you can learn the skill while at home on holidays. This business can be started on a small scale with as low as N5, 000.

3. Catering services The list will be incomplete without including this vocation. Students are always on the move to celebrate virtually everything (from birthdays, matriculations, end of the semester) in grand styles. These functions are incomplete without a cake and other snacks served as refreshment. As a student, you can offer catering services to your colleagues at a very affordable price and if you are good at it, the pay is good. Although the market for this skill is now overloaded you can make an impact if you can build your skills. Bear it in mind that starting this business may be quite expensive due to the prices of the equipment involved but the pay is good and it is a guaranteed way to attract more cash into your bank account.

4. Sale of fashion items This is also a good business for students on campus but it is quite very risky. One has to be very careful when engaging in this type of business. Students can sell items such as underwear, clothes, footwear, wristwatches, handbags, earrings and the list is just endless. This business can be set up with as low as N 20, 000 and subsequent expansion can be made later.

5. Tech stuff Students can engage in the repairs of gadgets such as laptops, handsets etc. Providing tech stuff can also be a good way in getting extra cash in your pockets.

6. Graphic design and photography As a student, you can be engaged in designing phone stickers, banners, digital passports, and photographs. You can also design customized invitation cards for events.
Contrary to the general opinion that a student should always be broke, once you can find what is lacking in your hostel, department or even organization, you are sure to succeed.

Fiverr / Re: How Can One Exploit Exportation Business From Nigeria? by Ikoiikenna: 07:55pm On 5 May
Nigeria is richly blessed by God with enormous amount of Natural and mineral resources. These resources extend all over the country. There is no region of the country that is not blessed with viable resources where investors will key in to process them into raw materials or semi-finished goods for exports or local consumption. There is also opportunity to engage in production and export of agricultural or farm product with aim of supplying the needs of the people and for export into other countries. This article is aimed at providing information to prospective exporters on how to start and become successful in exporting business.

Export training is crucial
Engaging in export is very complicated and not easy to dab into without basic prior knowledge of the rudiments of the business. You need to be taught how the business operate, the rationale and procedures of documentation,how to get an export license, port dealings, guidelines, product sourcing and so on. Of late, there have arisen a lot of companies, organizations and agencies that organize seminars and workshops on export business, particularly in Lagos state.

Identify the product you want to trade on
You would be required to identify product(s) you that would be more convenient for you to export. Concentrate more on products that are easily accessible and which you could easily lay your hands on when demanded. Things like cassava, bitter kola,cocoa, yam tubers, snails, Ginger, Arabic gum, Charcoal, Sesame Seed, Dried Hibiscus (Zobo), Hardwood Charcoal, Raw Cashew Nuts, PKS, Crude Palm oil, Gum Arabic, Shea Butter, Coconut, Solid Minerals like Lead Ore, Zinc Ore, Mica and other natural resources and so on are good materials for export. also you can start:
food stuff exporting, spicy exporting, charcoal exporting etc.

A good number of manufacturing companies in Countries like the USA, Germany, UK, China, France, Japan and India have begun to look towards Nigeria to source for cheap export industrial raw materials to enable them to manufacture finished goods. There are by and large two ways to source a product; either you are buying from people to export or you are producing it yourself and then export to Canada, export to china, export India etc.

Business registration is essential
It is essential that you make your business legal by registering it with the Corporate Affairs Commission. Foreign buyers are very cautious of dealing with Nigerians so as not to be defrauded. Therefore, registering your business will assist to create a good image of yourself. Show your prospective buyers your certificate of incorporation and any additional proof that you are a legal and responsible business.

Search for prospective foreign Importers:
Dealing with exporting business has been made much simpler with the advent of the internet. You can arrange and finish a business deal from your house through the internet without having to meet the client on to one. Despite the advantage of using the internet to trade, you must also be aware of the possible internet fraud. So be cautious to avoid regret. Your job as an exporter is to locate and get connected with foreign buyers and deal directly with them or get them linked up to reliable suppliers of exportable commodities in Nigeria who will do the shipment.

If the business deal is accomplished successfully together with shipment you would be paid a specified fee as a commission. If for instance you got a foreign export contract of supplying about 50 metric tons of cocoa or cassava and the percentage commission accruable is $30/metric ton. You would be getting the sum of $1500 for merely that one deal only without having to be physically involved in collecting and transportation of those goods.

Advertise your products to prospective buyers
Your main thought as a potential exporter ought to be trade fairs and missions. As you move on in export business, you’ll be required to attend a good number of them present your products and services for promotion.
Make contact with organizations like the Bank of Industry (BoI) or Nigerian Export Import bank (NEXIM) for advice on the association between country risks and the likelihood of accessing credit facilities.

You could make profit of roughly N150, 000- 200,000 per container which means when you export roughly 5 containers you’d be making profit of N1, 000,000 in a space of about 6 weeks. Many have achieved this; you too could do the same with proper planning and determination.
The good thing about the business is that you can start small and progress gradually. Even without fund you could begin by sourcing for clients and acting as middle man between established exporters and from there you would move forward.

Therefore you have different opportunities of engaging in exporting business. You can either enter the business as a:

Manufacturing Exporter
Manufacturing Exporter is a company which in addition to the production of specific products as well exports the manufactured product. This company may sell the same product for local consumption but they as well to the outside world for profit. A few examples of such companies are Unilever, 7UP Bottling Company, PZ and so on.

Export Merchant
Export Merchant is an exporter who purchases goods or products from manufacturers and producers in the country and exports them to various parts of the world. He is responsible for sourcing for products that meets with the buyer’s expectation. This faction of export dealers make sizeable profit and have the ability to increase his volume of transaction for juicier reward.

Export Agent
Export Agent is a man who has a good understanding of how export business works, is aware of how to source for foreign clients to buy from and how to get local sellers or suppliers. He is being paid commission by providing a linkage between foreign buyers, exporters and local suppliers of the product. An export agent requires more of common sense than resources to be successful in the business.

Which of them you take up largely depends on a few factors like product availability, product sourcing skills and so on. The market have enormous space to accommodate anybody who wishes to do export in this country, you can start from export agent and move to export merchant as you grow. If you so wish, you could as well move to become a manufacturing exporter.

W.E/General / What To Wear To An Interview by ikoiikenna: 10:26pm On 5 May
What to wear for a job interview has been a topic of discussion that is usually met with a different point of view. While naturally, it is advisable to be as cooperate as possible, but at the same time, you do not want to go for an interview overdressed.

It is only right and proper to do a research on the company you have been invited for an interview. From the research, you will not only find out more about the company and the likely question, you may also find out about the kind of client they serve, their location and with the help of social media you may also get a glimpse of their staff and maybe observe their working environment. From these research, you can deduce an idea of the dress code from the company.

Please, you should not go to an interview with overall and safety boots just because the company is into maintenance, in such cases, you may dress cooperatively without a tie but this will also depend on the size of the company.

Putting the kind of industry in mind, it is only right that when you going for a job interview in a company from the banking sector you will have to entirely cooperate with a jacket and tie for the guys and for the ladies a suit and jacket will be appropriate.

Addressing the issue of overdressing for an interview, they are some very small start-up that might feel you are above their pay grade when you dress up for an interview like a banker. An example was narrated on social media by an applicant who was turned down for the job simply because the interviewer felt that the salary they can offer can not meet up with his fashion style. Now that's an example of overdressing for an interview.

It is right to do a proper research on the company and ask a question on the dress code if you have an opportunity to. And also regardless of the kind of company and its size, dress cooperate and neat to an interview.

Successful Entrepreneur / Pig Farming: Success Story Of Anna Phosa by ikoiikenna: 10:28pm On 5 May
Studies show that pork (pig meat) is the most widely consumed meat in the world, followed by poultry and beef. The value of trade in pig products around the world runs into billions of dollars every year and Africa enjoys less than 5 percent of this action. Although pig farming hasn’t really picked up in Africa like other parts of the world, a few entrepreneurs are already exploring the benefits of this enterprise.

Anna Phosa is one of Africa’s well-known pig farmers. Anna Phosa was an ordinary entrepreneur who made a livelihood from her small vegetable farming business in Soweto, South Africa before she was introduced to pig farming by a close friend and instantly developed a liking for the venture.

In 2004, Anna invested 1,000 Rand (about $100) to buy four pigs which she used to start up her own small pig farm. A little less than four years later (in 2008) Anna was contracted by Pick ‘n Pay, the South African supermarket and retail giant to supply its stores with 10 pigs per week. This rapidly grew to 20 pigs per week shortly after.

In 2010, Anna signed a breathtaking contract with Pick ‘n Pay to supply 100 pigs over the next five years under a 25 million Rand deal (nearly 2.5 million US Dollars!)

With a contract in hand, Anna received funding from ABSA Bank and USAID to buy a 350-hectare farm property. From just four pigs, her new farm now holds nearly 4,000 pigs at a time and supplies roughly 100 to 120 pigs a week to retailers in South Africa and currently employs about 20 staff
