    Yemi, it’s nice you are doing these videos. However, we need solution based videos, not reiterate the same problems. Nigerians are aware of the problems and we can talk all day long about the critical problems but how do we implement ways to better ourselves and the country.
    I expected, that you did some research, and had some new knowledge or information to share with your viewers. Or you had some connection with people that will give unbiased insight about the job market in Nigeria in a way that will encourage Nigerians planning to go back home.

    Eagerly clicked this looking for a “quick fix” cos I wanta come back home too. I dont know much about the situation in Nigeria, but from my research and findings I believe it’s about who you know and not your talent or what you have to offer. If anyone else has a contradicting point of view, please dont hesitate to post it. PS, Happy St. Patrick’s Day 🙂

    Okay you told the problem; what next? You can’t understand how many people don’t have jobs; the depression of rejection and the endless hope in the heart of many.If you have a friend who can push a CV, please do. someone can be saved

    Basically just watched all videos, my first time. Must I say, yemi you are doing a great job, but really do not like the opinions of the other cast mates. Regarding getting a job, I remember vividly that I applied online for KPMG job in 2012. In as much as I didn’t get the job, I think that’s a medium Nigerian companies are leaning towards now. Am not certain of Nigeria’s progress though. Hope that helps
