A Few Tips To Help You Get Selected For The Recruitment Exercise
You will need to constantly check your email (the one you used during the registration) for any message from the agency.
That is why you must use a working email address during the registration process.
Before going over to the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps’ official website to begin the recruitment application process, ensure you have scanned all your relevant certificates, passport and any other document that may be required of you.
Unless you have a smartphone with a very clear camera, do not just snap your documents and upload them.
Walk into a computer cyber cafe and have them do that for you using a computer scanner. It won’t cost you much to get them scanned.
Once you have them on your device , you can always upload them wherever you need to. You can also be able to print them anytime, anywhere without much ado.
If you don’t have much experience using the internet or don’t know how web applications like Chrome, Mozilla Firefox etc work, kindly ask someone for help with the registration so you don’t mess things up for yourself.
