Well, it's not as easy as it is been written, likewise the pay.
Nowadays most IT companies do not only rely on your certifications, they want it being practical, like ; what can you really do either in isolation or within a team.

I know lots of peeps here with certifications all over.. go to LinkedIn you will see them flocking around with certs without any experience.

I am a Senior network engineer, it took me years of practices: trial and error to get there. I have a Lab at home where i simulate network scenarios during my off days.

You need devoted time to become an IT professional and then you start seeing the money flowing like water.

As an IT consultant you can't earn lesser than 500K a month except you don't know what you are doing.

God bless!!

All the salaries you put up there are not right, not in Nigeria.

I can categorically tell you that the value system of employers is terrible, no matter the certifications you get.
