Are you a serving corps member working as a teacher or office assistant at your PPA?
Bitter truth is that most NYSC PPAs do not prepare corps members for the currently saturated job market that expects fresh graduates to have 3 years of experience.
Nowadays, most employers look for certain employable experience, skills, and qualities in candidates in addition to academic qualifications. These experiences and skills are crucial for enhancing your chance to gain employment immediately after the service year. These experiences also have an impact on your ability to progress in your career.
In this article, we will list some of the popular companies in the world offering online graduate internships to acquire employable job experience you need to increase your chances of getting the job of your choice.

Why are employable experiences and skills important?
- Employable experiences and skills are transferrable skills that are useful in nearly every job. They entail the acquisition of skills, knowledge, or attitudes that increase your marketability to employers.
- Employable experiences and skills are also often referred to as soft skills, work-readiness skills, or foundational experiences. They frequently help you perform better, make fewer errors, and encourage teamwork with your coworkers, which enables you to carry out your job more effectively.
- Employable experiences and skills may not be listed in a job description, but they are important skills that can make you more attractive to prospective employers. The biggest advantage of possessing these qualities is that they might make you stand out from other job applicants who are vying for the same position.
- Even if other candidates may have the same qualifications and experience as you have, if you possess employability skills that are particularly advantageous for the position, you may stand a better chance of being hired.
- Certain employable experiences and skills are more sought after in specific industries. You can prepare yourself for an interview or write your resume for a particular position by researching which employment skills are essential in your industry.
