Do you know that there is there is hardly a student that does not make or cut their hair at regular intervals?
And with the thousands of students milling around the campus environment, learning how to cut hair “barb” or make hair, especially for females, while awaiting admission, NYSC is one sure way to banish hunger when you eventually get to campus.
Depending on how fast you’re at learning, such skills can be mastered in less than three months.
You can check your area for ‘barbing’ salons and discuss with them that you want to learn and they’d surely give you the necessary criteria peculiar to them.
And for making hair, with dedication and willingness, you can master how to fix wigs, do simple weaving among others, within a six-month period.
After picking one of the skills for students awaiting admission, NYSC, there are two ways to work. It is either you work for someone or set-up your store.
The former involves sharing your daily profit with the owner of the saloon who provides the needed tools for the work.
On the other hand, if you have the cash, you can rent a space, buy your tools and be your own oga. With about N100, 000 – N500,000, depending on the location, you can have your shop ready.
Data from the Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC) reveals that there are well over 200 million phone lines in the country.

It is even easy to start: it requires no shop as you can do it anywhere; tools are cheap to acquire and thus will not put a hole in your pocket.
The same can be said of laptop repairs.

Like I noted earlier on, the internet has opened up opportunities to make money. People now have e-flyers for their programmes.

Even though the advent of smartphones seem to have made photography less lucrative, students are crazy about capturing precious moments in school – matriculation, birthdays, seminars, convocations – the list is endless.
If you know your worth, good at what you do, then pick up your camera and head go to event centers, take those fine shots and have some cool cash in your pocket.
Find someone a photographer, tell him to show you how to handle cameras even as you utilize the power of the internet to scale up this skill.
You can then save up money; ask your parents to get a camera for you and you are good to go.
I have friends that are into this and are not doing bad. Instead of idling away at home while waiting for admission; NYSC, you can register to learn shoe making.
