      Hi house,I’ve bin invited for the exams by NIMC and I just found that the post I applied for requires 16 years work experience and I just have 1 year experience. Suggestions pls.Thanks.

  3. moji says:

    Pls is there a way we can get their past questions? Atleast to know what their exam looks like.

    I am not really happy that such a very important exam like this is not well organized. How can someone who has no money and is looking for job be meant to spend close to N30,000.00 on transport and accommodation in order to write an aptitude test. How is he supposed to get the money?

    I am in Port Harcourt and had expected to write the test in Port Harcourt, but was surprised to see that my centre is at UNILORIN in Illorin, Kwara State and this will take me 1 day to go, 1 day for the test and another 1 day to come back to Port Harcourt, making a total of 3 days which by implication means 2 nights lodging expenses. Now tell me if it were you, would you participate? Well there is corruption in this country and I have seen it that there is also a possibility of using this as a strategy to deny some people of this opportunity otherwise for a national exercise like this, nothing can stop NIMC from making use of all the tertiary institutions in the country.

  5. ifunanya michael says:

    my centre is @ ilorin, university of ilorin. whereas am in lagos. how do i go abt it.

  6. Precious says:

    Its a shame that we cannot get things right in this country.I was posted to kwara state without considering if i have the means to transport my self to the centre.I even sent an email to the authorities concerned but didn’t get a response and i just wonder for my country..Simple service we cannot render and really its a shame.
    Funny enough spending much money to my location to me its not worth it because its not even sure that the job is certain because i know how things work in this country.

  8. big penis says:

    Chukwuka, dont you know that NIMC hired a private recruiting firm to handle the recuitment. So they went round the federation and found out that just a handle of our institutions can handle a computer based exam for the multitude that applied.i really understand your pain, but you must understand that they are not beging you to come, ARE YOU A LEARNER!!!! please brother, so if u can manage to get the money better for you bro. @moji, u b MUMU, do you think its WAEC you want to write?? @joy,y would u do such mistake….but if i were u, i will still go 4 d exam

  9. charles dike says:

    Emeruom Chukwuka you are damn right,such exams should be conducted in all the cities,not Ilorin all alone and am not even sure that its only exams that will be conducted,i am convinced that on or before the exams certain amount of money will be asked from the candidates and that is STEALING AND EXTORTION.Well I received the invitation to come to Ilorin for the text but am not going because of the risk on the road,my dear Emeruom Chukwuka,pls look for jobs around you and for get this Ilorin thing-..BLOOD RITUALISTS-

  10. mariam says:

  11. @ big penis, I love ur courage and expressions. Some Nigerians are just an addictive complaints! Its simple, if chukwuka don’t wanna come lik u said they re not begging him.but if its to borrow money to travel for a wedding he will. @ Charles,U RE JUST A LEARNER!!! Keep Luking for a job dat is in ur street onli not just in ur state. And stop being a bad influence to peoiples positive thinking. People like u will stil complain even if its written in ur parlour. In life Charles, U WIN SOME N LOOSE SOME!

  17. paul says:

    The so called test we went for was not well organized at all.I could not stand the crowd,everybody was just struggling here and there,some applicant that came outside Lagos were looking frustrated and lost to the extent of seeking accomodation from strangers which is totally uncalled for.I personally ended up not writing the test cause of the crowded venue which was not well managed by the organizers’ where one of the Head there claimed that we shouldn’t spoil his business because of the way we were crowded(prospective applicants) in front of his office.So it was so disheaartening that we are having such issues hitting young and energetic Nigerians.God help us….
