10 Nigerian Companies every fresh graduate wants to work for

It is common knowledge that every Nigerian Graduate wants to work for a company that pays well and has a lot of benefits, hence the rush towards big multinational corporations especially in the oil and gas sector.

Recently I carried out a mini survey on companies that Nigerian Graduates want to work for and the result was not so far from my expectations. 100% of the respondents chose a multinational corporation: 80% of the 100 chose companies in the oil and gas sector, while the remaining 20% chose other multinational corporations.

From the survey I have drawn up a list of the top 10 companies Nigerian graduates want to work for. The list is based on the responses from the survey not on the salary structure of the company.

  1. IBM

IBM (International Business Machines) Corporation is a multinational I.T company. It deals mostly in technology and is also a consulting company. They try to come up with innovative ideas that can make the world a better place. Why do people want to work for them? The salary! The salary of an average worker at IBM per year sums up to N2,555,455 per year with other benefits. Now who wouldn’t want that?
