This week “Webpick Weekly” will present information on the writer’s top websites on the internet; Business & Entrepreneurship site www.howwemadeitinafrica.com, the Jobs/Career website www.careersnigeria.com, and the Life Style & Entertainment site www.360nobs.com.
The Careers Nigeria website is one of Nigeria’s most popular web-stination (web destination) for detailed listings of job openings, recruitment and career advisory services. Launched in April 2007, the website is managed by the duo Victor Okezie & Felicia Odumosu. As described by the innovators of the website, Careers Nigeria is a candidate attraction and talent search & selection company offering exceptional recruitment & employee development services. The website acts as a link between potential job seekers and the prospective employers seeking to attract top talent for their various business and organization. Over the years the website has evolved from a job portal to a fully fledged career and recruitment services company specializing in a range of recruitment services comprising recruitment campaigns, employee development among others. It is the go to site for up to date information on graduate, experienced job offers. In summary, it is a one stop shop for jobs and career tips for potential job seekers and organizations/employers seeking a web presence. Other examples of similar site include; www.naijahotjobs.com, www.ngcareers.com, among others.
Business & Entrepreneurship site (www.howwemadeitinafrica.com):
The present economic climate has hit all sectors of human enterprise. As such finding not just jobs but secure and well paying employment has become a utopian desire matched only in no so glowing terms as a sack letter. The question is what next for most or perhaps the large proportion of job seekers out there; millions of whom are chasing a handful of jobs in the job-land. This is where www.howwemadeitinafrica.com comes in handy. Rather than advocate job seeking, this site promotes job creation, encouraging individuals to be job creators rather threading the line of looking for employment. It is a rich source of articles on start up firms, business innovation, and tips on starting and successfully running small and medium scale businesses on the continent. The well written articles on the site provide an insight into the minds of successful entrepreneurs, their entrepreneurial motivation and tips for effectively managing businesses across Africa. The site provides a rich source of information via case studies, insider advice on the best business practices and viable investment options in various countries and regions of the African continent. Other examples of such other sites include; www.incmagazine.com
Life Style & Entertainment site www.360nobs.com:
Created and managed by the socialite Noble Igwe and his team of techies, 36onobs.com is a life style and entertainment webzine rich in info about music and movie reviews, news, articles, interviews, events, fashion and all the glitterati of the Nigerian celebrity circle. The crew at 360nobs.com strives in their own words to “continually dish out authoritative, well researched and seasoned up-to-the-minute news on entertainment, music, movies, fashion and lifestyle… by snooping around the hottest parties to bring you the best and the faux-pas of what went down, from who wore what and how they pulled it off, to the event’s ambiance, guests in attendance, etc. In summary, the premise is to offer first hand scoops on the lifestyle of the crème de la crème of the socialites in Nigeria. Similar sites include; www.bellanaija.com, http://fiyanda.blogspot.com.
