If I were you, I'd stick to my present job or pick up the forthcoming FBN job because I'm sure FBN is a more recognised name professionally as compared to where you are working at the moment.

The goal of PTDF scholarships is to equip Nigerians with the best post graduate education towards effective human capital development so as to have them come back to further make needed competent addition into the nation's oil and gas industry, so after your M.Sc, you'd find it hard to get a job there or get a visa extension, the goal for anyone who came to the UK through PTDF is for you to return to your home country and contribute to human capital in the oil and gas industry. Except you plan to hypnotise a British girl into loving you madly enough to wanna marry you so you don't have to return to Nigeria grin You didn't hear it from me please grin

Let's say you go to the UK, after your M.Sc you come back, then what? Do you know the number of people who had M.Sc's before you even registered for your JAMB? The job market is saturated with M.Sc's and not just local but foreign obtained M.Sc degrees.

Your present job of 183K is good enough and you should get even higher pay soon once you get promoted, and you are in sales department which has high promotion opportunities. Stick to your job or accept FBN when the time comes, you were complaining about its modest pay, but there are a whole lot of allowances you stand to enjoy as a confirmed staff.

Thanks, i see your point.
I have created another thread for this my dilema. I dont want to derail from the objective of this thread.

Hmmmmmm e be like u no know the amount of jobless ptdf scholars for Nigeria. I'm not saying it will be your portion if u decide to do the scholarship, Infact, I reject it on ur behalf but the truth Is that there are many overseas scholars who are jobless in Nigeria. If ur job offers steady advancement and good pay, why do the scholarship? My younger brother also got it, but his school resumes in January. He applied for Fidelity bank, and he says when they call him for training school before January, he will either defer or abandon his scholarship. Remember you will sign a bond to return to Nigeria after the scholarship, and ptdf will not give you Job, Infact the head of ptdf was in the news recently when he said that there are no jobs for ptdf trained scholars. So just think deeply. Yes the scholarship abroad is enviable, it is very great, but there are no guarantees after the scholarship. First bank is one of the best Banks to work,i tell u. Fidelity too.




Think!

Guy, i have thought and thought and that is why i have resorted to nairaland. To be honest, i just dislike commercial science related jobs even though i try to do my best in the one i found myself in because one does not have the luxury of switching jobs at will in Naija. Remember, i dropped KPMG some months ago and was fortunate enough to find one recently.
pls, those scholars u mentioned, do u have any idea what they studied and their performance?

One time I was in some sort of a "good dilemma" and someone told me to toss a coin and assign both cases to the sides of the coin. Then toss it, that moment before the coin touches the ground, your heart would wish for one so badly. Go for that!

We live in a world of uncertainty, do what gives you joy and always believe you made the right decision/choice as the case may be.

I want to first of all thank everyone that has taken their time to write on this post; the information contained have been very helpful.
I happen to fall under the category of those awaiting assessment. I took my dragnet tests in Enugu and I would love to find out if the 'assessment' will also take place in Enugu or in Lagos or some other states.
Also, this assessment, what does it entail?
Any information on these would greatly be appreciated!

Still need help here!! cry

Life is all about risk.

If you go, you will gain more knowledge and international experience, unfortunately you will have to come back because its UK unless you impregnate Oyinbo. Lol. And when you come back, you will need to compete for the few jobs in the field you love so much. Or take a job in social science which is what you already have.

But 2years is a long time. Unemployment would have eased by then. And if you could get 2 jobs without Msc in this present Nigeria, you can do it again when you get back.

Hello guys... If you were to choose between first bank and access, which would be your choice and why?
Seems this is the point I find myself now. Tanx

Well, i think i will choose Access, Access is a bank that is dominated by young and vibrant people compared to first bank and yes like the others have said Access will push u to the end of the wall just to bring out the best in the u, i don't see this as a bad thing because u get better and achieve things u never thought u could. You are a young man/woman this is the time to hustle and push yourself, u can retire for first bank later in life.

An example is the recruitment process, see how long first bank is taking, In Access everything is SHARP SHARP!!!

THIS IS JUST MY OPINION

Except Firstbank decides otherwise, be rest assured your assessment would hold at their training school in Lagos.Everyone who has had their assessment had it in Lagos and I don't think it's going to change now.For what the assessment entails,go back to the previous pages on this thread till you get what you need.

Least would be 10M. 5M would barely cover tuition not to mention upkeep. Although I would encourage him to do documentation if summoned.

My brother I'm a PTDF scholar (local though). The local scholarship was worth 1.5m and it was just increased from 750k in my time while the foreign was increased from 3m to 5m. It's the PhD scholarship that makes more sense. It's about 5m for local and 25m for foreign.

Personally, I think the guy should go for his MSc if that is truly what he wants, he can always get scholarships to further in Europe if he does really well cos that is his best bet. Coming back to look for employment is a no no for me. If he intends to come back and start looking for employment then he needs not go in the first place.

If the scholarship covers
Tuition
An allowance.
Flight Fares.... I don't see how 5M would be sufficient. That's about 12-15k pounds.

You dont need to resign properly bro. You only just need to resign which entails notifying your employer by formal writing except you are a debtor.

Don't mind him,I'm not sure he's worked in a properly structured place where every item in your employment contract is implemented. When resigning from my last job,I had to give two weeks notice despite not owing them a dime.Your employer needs time to find a suitable replacement for you and probably audit your accounts/activities depending on the nature of your job.So,you just can't leave unannounced or on a very short notice.Just refer to your employment letter or ask around if anyone has had to leave on a very short notice.Never rule out your new employer having to ask for reference from your old/last employer.

When First Bank gives you 4 days to report to TS, Bros wait for 1 week and 3 days more to give notice. Don't forfeit salary and resign yeye.
