PRAISE FOR “GETTING A JOB IS A JOB” BY ARUOSA OSEMWEGIE
“This book by Aruosa Osemwegie is a concise, highly readable and useful tutorial for the fresh job seeker. I recommend it as a practical guide to securing that dream job …”
– Tayo Aderinokun
Managing Director, Guaranty Trust Bank plc, Nigeria (2002 – 2012)
“Getting a Job is a Job is a user-friendly essential guide, providing truly helpful and important insights and recommendations about how to get a job. The book is a quality contribution to a topic that has not had sufficient serious attention in Nigeria, despite the undoubted importance – and consequences – of (not) getting a job. It gives an informed, insider view of the topic and is full of good examples. It will surely meet the needs of both neophytes and experienced candidates in the job market.”
- Dr. Ifedapo Adeleye, SPHR
former Lecturer, Human Resources Management & Head of Research at Lagos Business School.
Aruosa’s book, “Getting a Job is a Job” is a truly outstanding, highly practical and extremely relevant book that can propel any individual forward in their job search and career development aspirations if they are wise enough to act on the wealth of information offered throughout the book. The book is far more than a book on how to get a job as it provides perception expanding information on how to thrive in the place of work as well. The ideas presented in this book, fully embraced can take any individual to the next level in their career aspiration…i am fully persuaded that this book will make a lot of difference in the lives of graduates that are smart enough to embrace the idea that Getting a Job Is “TRULY” A Job.
- Bolaji Olagunju
Lead Consultant, Workforce Management centre, Founder Institute of Workforce Development Nigeria
"This book comes at a time most needed, to an environment riddled with double digit unemployment rates, a drastic drop in the quality of the average Nigerian graduate and a serious dearth in career education communicated to our University Graduates – it truly is a no nonsense guide to getting your desired job in Nigeria’s current reality and details in concrete terms, the rudiments of navigating the job market – This is a book that every final year University student and fresh graduate must have.
- Kayode Olufemi-Ayoola (Executive Coach)
Co-Partner & Founder, Executive Toolkit: Peak Performance Coaches; Founder and Coordinator, Daystar CareerPlus
"Many books have been written about job hunting, this is in a class of its own. It's practical, suitable for the Nigerian environment and loaded with the insight that can only come from experience. I recommend for anyone who really wants a job"
- Deolu Akinyemi
Human Resources expert and Entrepreneur; Managing Director, Generis Solutions
“Getting a job is indeed a serious business, particularly given the competition for the few job opportunities by the ever growing army of job seekers today! Fortunately Aruosa’s very practical, incisive, and easy to read book is an excellent companion for job seekers intent on creating the right impression to win the job of their dream. It is also an excellent reference for all people interested in improving their knowledge and skills for winning at interviews”
- Emmanuel Imoagene
former HR Director, Nigerian Breweries; former HR Director (West Africa), Cadbury Nigeria Plc.
Getting a Job is a Job is a descriptive book on how an individual can practically and attractively present oneself in the Labour Market for the most suitable job available. The book which is written by an HR practitioner is divided into two main parts and ten chapters, each focusing on a key aspect of job search and attraction…Overall, it is commendable that the author has described extensively the impact of individual value (i.e. self worth) on talent attraction and retention efforts in the vibrant Nigerian labour. Job seekers would find the book a valuable toolkit
- Musa Rabiu
former Registrar/CEO; Chartered Institute Personal Management of Nigeria
This book is a valuable resource that greatly enhances a job seeker’s ability to get a job. It’s a reality check that takes the applicant through critical self-examination and gives them the self-confidence to approach a tough business world. The author focuses on changing the mindset of the job seeker from one of ignorance, fear or ‘entitlement’ to becoming a person of ‘value’. Unfortunately, practical life skills are not taught in our universities and colleges but this book goes a long way to close the gap.
This book is a ‘must have’ for any serious minded person willing to invest time and energy to ensure that they are well positioned to take advantage of career opportunities.
- Sola David-Borha
former Chief Executive Officer, Stanbic IBTC Holdings (A member of the Standard Bank Group)
Aruosa Osemwegie’s book “Getting a Job is a Job” is “Definitely A "Can't Put Down" read. Its principles are time tested and the worksheets allow the reader to immediately examine his motives and strategies for success. It’s definitely a book that I recommend to anyone who believes they have what it takes to succeed.
What are you waiting for? Get one… for as many people that you can!
- Fela Durotoye
Renowned Motivational speaker, Best selling author, 17 Secrets of High Flying Students
Chief Executive Officer, Gemstone Group
The book is one that saddles the reader with the responsibility to take hold of destiny. It directs young people on how to chart a course for their success and fulfillment; it also fully explains what to do to get what they want. Without courting mediocrity, the book exposes Nigerians to the fact that the unemployment crisis is not a problem for any graduate who has discovered himself/herself, made a decision for excellence and is ready to pay the price of a lifelong satisfying career. The book is tailored to meet the needs of every Nigerian graduate by first disabusing their minds of the ‘no-jobs-out-there’ mindset.
As the Executive Director of AGDC Employability & Enterprise Development GTE/LTD, a social enterprise currently in partnership with national and international foundations such as International Youth Foundation & MTN Foundation to offer support to graduates by tackling their unemployment and employability problems, I fully understand the importance of this book and therefore strongly recommend it.
This book is an excellent, step-by-step guide for individuals who strongly desire career success. It is an indispensable career success tool for every undergraduate, fresh graduate and youth corper, people in between jobs and anyone seeking career excellence. Read this book, write a plan, and work the plan. "See you at the very top!
- Detoun Ogwo

“I stumbled on a startling fact recently. I learnt that many job openings are being created monthly in Nigeria but there are not enough qualified people who fit the requirements of the employers. This book, Getting a Job is a Job, by Aruosa Osemwegie, will give anyone who is able to apply its witty tips and wisdom nuggets an unfair advantage in any job placement offer. And if you plan to succeed on the job too, you should get a copy of this book and buy for your friends as well”.
