How to make money from NYSC

Go to school

I am sure that you know that in order to participate in the NYSC programme, you need to go to a university or polytechnic and have at least a BSc or a HND certificate.

The school you graduated from will send your name and other details to the NYSC. The NYSC will revert and send you the details of your posting.

You will be required to participate in a one month military style orientation before you will be transferred to your place of primary assignment.

You will be paid every month as a corper in Nigeria. Though the money paid to corpers is not too much but it can still sustain you for a while till you get a good paying job.

Do other things during NYSC years

In Nigeria, most of the graduates who participate in the NYSC programme do other things in order to make money.

I know a number of corpers who make over N100,000 every month aside their monthly stipend. Some engage in private coaching services while others just find something that is profitable to do.

Most medical doctors who are corpers work in one or two hospitals on per time basis in order to make more money.

This is not limited to doctors alone, if you are a corper, you can start a blog, engage in affiliate marketing or do freelancing jobs.

Recently, I met a corper who makes over $2,000 on Fiverr every month. He told me that he would not look for a job after his service year.

Help people to influence posting

In Nigeria, you can easily get people who can help you influence your NYSC posting. In most cases, you will be charged.

If you can help graduates to influence their postings to popular states like Lagos, Rivers and Oyo etc., you will make a lot of money.

You just need to find a couple of graduates and assure them that you can make NYSC post them to the states they like. These graduates are likely to pay you handsomely.

Join NYSC as a member of staff

Joining NYSC as a member of staff can be lucrative. NYSC recruits staff almost every year.

You just need to look out for when they place an advertisement for jobs.

You also need to apply for hidden jobs in NYSC. Most time, government agencies employ secretly.

Help graduates to get their choice place of primary assignment

After the NYSC orientation, corpers are deployed to their places of primary assignment. Most corpers are sent to schools as teachers which they do not like.

If you can help corpers to get posting to banks, oil companies and other high paying companies, you will make a ton of money.

You just need to know the NYSC officials in NYSC camps so that you will be able to influence postings.

Some companies pay corpers as high as N100,000 every month.

Check NYSC Portal for would be corpers

You can start a cybercafé or a business centre dedicated to helping people to check the NYSC portal, JAMB result or WAEC result.

The NYSC portal is where corpers visit on the web to check the states they are deployed to.
