Investment banking used to be highly rewarding, financially. Don't know whether it still is.

Jarus: Investment banking used to highly rewarding, financially. Don't know whether it still is.

It is still very highly rewarding. Certain boutique investment banks in Nigeria, with private equity and investment management units, pay their associates as much as $100, 000 base salary there in Lagos, Nigeria. Depending on performance, bonus can go as high as twice that base salary. I wonder why wage disparity is so huge in Lagos. Imagine someone earning dollars in naija where average salary per person is less than 1.2 million naira per year.

Anyway, the problem is that these finance firms can be wickedly competitive. Their analysts and associates are former Goldman, JP, BoFA, Nomura, Credit Suisse, Deutche workers who were earning base salaries in the open neighborhood of ($80K, 150$). Some of them even get paid more to work in Nigeria because Naija is considered a high risk zone, and the sad part of everything is that these people get headhunted and cajoled to come work in Lagos for these tempting salaries, more of abeg come work for us..Kai..A city with jobless people who can die for these same opportunities.

Money, and glamor, still exits in the 'right' area of finance.

Oil is not the highest paid job in Naija. Politicians and their associates: Personal Assistants, Contractors, Commissioners, LGA chairmen, NDDC staff, the list goes on and on before broke oil workers. My father was there for about 30 years but not half rich as some PA's that i know of...

Have u given up on oil company ni?

If you're looking for job, don't wait till Shell or Globacom come calling. Get ur self something doing first, start small and consolidate. Apply as much as you can and be interviewed, the salary might not be in millions but its a start.

Lol Dude. Who talks about IB these days? Since the NSE has gone to the bears that path is on the serious decline. By the way, how many IPOs came to the market this year?

I'll still give it to the Telcos, Commercial banking, Multinational FMCGs in that order.
