DEBOLABI: you have not really answer my question...
my question is it worthwhile? in terms of standard of living over there, employment and salary etc?.

I think it's difficult for someone to satisfactorily answer those questions for you because they're subjective. Also there are many threads here on NL that have discussed the issue extensively, check the travel section or just do a search on the forum in general.

What have you found from your own personal research?

Especially now with the trend moving towards, and creating a new field in Big Data and statistical analysis, I think the prospects are brighter than they've been in a long time.

If you Google 'Industrial Mathematics', and if you do other searches including terms like 'Courses' and 'Jobs' I believe you would find a whole lot of information related to the course.

Don't forget to come back and tell us what you find smiley

eddiebruk: Abeg bros if you wan contribute, do so without quoting me, abeg, na beg i dey. Thank you.

I've found the best way to avoid being quoted is by not posting at all.

Regarding the topic, if you're not willing to learn, why not let those who are do?

Okay well if that's the case then you know the area you should focus on. Find a close friend or family member who can help you conduct do interviews to help sharpen your communication skills and improve your confidence. Also, apply for jobs you're not necessarily interested in just for opportunities to get interview practice ahead of the roles you really want.

I've got to keep it real with you man the key to success in this case is practice, practice, practice!
Business / Re: Famous Brands Takes 49% Stake In Nigeria’s Mr Bigg’s by 1forall: 3:35pm On Sep 16, 2013
Why is that local entrepeneurs fail to see/act on the potential lying under their noses until some foreign entitity does? The Mr Biggs brand has been begging for a makeover for a very long time now and it's a shame that it had to take a South African business to do something about it.

They're obviously going to invest a lot of funds into this venture and when the business is re-done and begins to flourish, I hope the locals won't start moaning over these 'Southies' making mad money from here.

Hi manish you appear very enthusiastic to get a job right away. Since that's what you want then I would suggest you prepare a CV, identify the organizations you wish to work with and start applying to them - that's if you're not doing so already.
Career / Re: Simple Steps For Setting And Achieving Your Goals by 1forall: 1:49am On Sep 15, 2013
Great tips. I'm impressed because they are practical and not idealistic. And you're right, thinking on paper is the 1st step in moving an idea from imagination to reality.

Career / Re: Career In Management Information Systems by 1forall: 1:21am On Sep 15, 2013
The trouble with many of these academic IT courses is that although they introduce you to the concepts of the field, they are not specific enough for the workplace. Being an IT professional in my view is more of the practical skills possessed and how proficient you are with them, than the acquisition of degrees. To that end professional/industry certifications are more useful for gaining these skills than academic qualifications therefore I won't say a Master's degree is necessary. I think skills acquisition is the most important requirement, and if you pick up certifications along the way then, great!

What EXACTLY do you want to do in MIS? What systems interest you? What skills are necessary to master the use of these systems? Where can you get these skills? I think those are the questions you should be asking yourself, and then let your answers guide your quest.

Personally, I would suggest research and self-study for starters in order to get a feel for what you want to get into before committing your resources (time, energy, money) to it. For example you could initially be interested in; say SAP, and for some reason after few days of research and study, you could discover that it's not exactly what you would like to major in, and you could also make interesting new discoveries in the process. Thus a few days of research could save you from many months of regret.
Career / Re: Advice A Computer Engineer!!!! by 1forall: 12:45am On Sep 15, 2013
Computer Engineering is a really wide field and your experiences as a student should help you to identify the area that you would like to specialize in. Have you identified that yet? Knowing your area of interest would also help you to identify the type of organization that would be best to apply for IT.
Politics / Re: Why Are Workers Of Government Corporations So Rude? by 1forall: 3:08pm On Sep 13, 2013
anonimi: Do you know any country in this world whose government agencies are "set up to make profit"
A short list will do.
Thanks.

Official statistics show that councils are continuing to forecast to make £635 million profit from parking charges and fines.

That's one to begin with, a simple Google search will help you populate your desired list.

See, not every country in the world runs a rentier economic system like us - some actually THINK of the national future in running their affairs. Surprise! smiley

Politics / Re: Why Are Workers Of Government Corporations So Rude? by 1forall: 1:08pm On Sep 13, 2013
Nig govt agencies are not setup to make profit because they don't stop getting money from the government budget to spend thus they're not motivated to be accountable for anything. And even government's annual budget is prepared without taking the monies generated by these agencies into consideration; no forecasts nor projections, so the govt itself couldn't care less how they're run and consequently, everyone in the chain is more or lesss accountable to themselves.

Add to that list:

The Men Who Built America

The mini series shines a spotlight on the influential builders, dreamers and believers whose feats transformed the United States, a nation decaying from the inside after the Civil War, into the greatest economic and technological superpower the world had ever seen. The Men Who Built America is the story of a nation at the crossroads and of the people who catapulted it to prosperity (from www.imdb.com).
