Differences Between SSS and DSS

The State Security Service or the Department of State Security Service is mainly responsible for the domestic security of the country.

They are a brute police force that deals with chaos within the country.

They can also be used in anti-terrorism operations in Nigeria. Still, their main task is to provide security to the citizens of Nigeria.

The SSS enforces and upholds the criminal laws of Nigeria and provides criminal justice to law-enforcement organizations.

It also provides protection for State Governors, speakers of the House of Representatives, the Senate President, the Vice President, presidents, and their families.

Update For Shortlisted Applicants

If you’ve been shortlisted, then you’ve got your foot in the door. And it’s time for you to shine at the final stage – the interview.

However, when shortlisted:

Endeavour to get information about the company.

Also, ensure you have a clear vision. Try to figure out why you want the specific position. And how you would be a good fit. Also, go through your application.

Additionally, be interactive. It’s an interview, not an interrogation. There is much more to you than your resume.

The practice goes a long way. Thus, take mock interviews with your friends or practice speaking before a mirror.

It’s rare, but sometimes you do get an offer letter directly based on your application.

You start planning the celebration but remember some points before you go into that party mode: Get it in writing.

Also, go over the written offer in detail. And make sure all important details are mentioned and ask questions if you don’t understand anything.

Such as work profile, start date, duration, and stipend, etc.

Send a thank-you letter to the employer, once you accept the offer.

Also, follow up with an e-mail confirming your start date and expressing your enthusiasm for your new role.

From the above, you must note that we are not partnering with these companies.

We are only making this information available, to help you get that your dream job. As such, as you apply, ensure to do more research about the company. GOOD LUCK.
