“Our young graduates may wish to apply for the Graduate Fellowship by UNDP. They will place 20,000 graduates into 1-year internships in various multi National companies and development partners. The salary is good and the experience is unquantifiable.

“The link for the fellowship is njfp.ng and it is co sponsored by UNDP and EU. This is a great opportunity for our unemployed graduates. Please help us give it widest publicity.”
