If someone can help me out with a job I'd pretty appreciate it. I have two years experience on networks and servers, I have my CCIE (R&S) written, MCSA (server 12), MCSE(cloud platform and infrastructure), MIcrosoft Specialist Azure, MCP (office365) MCTS (System Center Configuration Manager& INTUNE), CEH (version 9), CSCU. I'm also a graduate of Electrical Electronics Engineering.

I've tried applying for jobs online, I've gotten nothing so far. I tried Linkedin Networking, gotten nothing too. I'm trying physical Networking. I'm young and can adapt.
You are part of the people i was talking about... See all the certifications without experience. Anyway PM me let's see how far we can go from here

Optimistic comment from all. At least we can all be serious for once. Again, good everyone agrees IT is the way forward. But there's a cliche'. Most young graduates would tend to look this way as a means to an end, then you will hear people make comments like can I learn enough Neyworking in 6 months? Or can I become a programmer in 6 months....

Not wanting to scare you, but there is a reason good programmers, web developers, data analyst, software designers are in short supply. The trade is hard (no sugar coating this)

You don't dabble into this as per hobbying. You go into it whole hog like your life depended on it. You don't think 6 months, but let's say within a year of serious study, you may have made it to an intermediary state. Then your journey begins

Learning in this field is never ending. But the thrill and excitement is super rewarding. With all these said, if you think you can commit just two hours everyday with eyes glued to your screen for the next 2,3 years, then this is for you.

To get started, don't waste your time on roadside training, they are too watery and offer no value for money paid. Instead, explore courses on udacity, coursera, edx, udemy for absolute free. Make quora and stackoverflow your next love and in no time, you'll find your rythm.

Welcome onboard.

Bro good pm, pls i will be rounding up my service soon, I am the first son of my parents and in my late 20s. I dont have much idea about ICT except when I typed my project with microsoft word, and do all these social media thing... Please from your humble heart, which one will you advice me to go for(I studied Ind. Chem) and what do u think will be the cost and time duration(I am a fast learner)...
Re: No Good Job? –try These Top 7 Nigerian ICT Jobs With High Employment Rate by boringnigerian: 11:47pm On Sep 13
I agree but....... Lots and I can hazard to say most Nigerian youth don't like learning anything they deem to be hard or complex. Even when they start, they bail at the first point they really to have to apply their brains and IT is a lot about applying your ability to reason and logic to solve problems. Nigerian youth don't have time for "logic" and "solving complex problems" and "creating creative solutions". They prefer following just one predefined system of doing things, one laid down formula, one rule book because it's so much easier. IT on the other constantly challenges you to step out of the box, do something new, take chances, come up with options. Nigerian youth, unfortunately, arent fans of any of the above.

Don't be so much in a hurry to jump in because some amount of money ha been quoted grin You think money are being dashed out for nothing?

Cool down, think about these careers. What will it take? How long to get to a level that companies will hire and pay you well?

I'm not trying to discourage you, rather, I'm trying to urge you to give it a little thought before making the move.

This is a nice post by the op. Well done.

Hustlers now talking web design and some are already advertising "web design bootcamp" grin . If you like, go there and waste your money. There are only few of these web design "institutes" that give what is needed unfortunately, I don't know any. All I see are hustlers. Forget the magic of beautiful CSS backgrounds they will teach you. That's just a starting point. I have been there, 5 years ago, web development training! Note, "development"! But, it was all magic.

A lot of you don't even know what you need: design or development or both. What's the difference? Before you go for that "Web Design" HTML/CSS marathon, go back to the post, read it carefully this time. Search online for the right path to take.

Most of those things has to do with dev, not web design. Developers usually use codes to implement solutions. Solutions are usually the big tasks. In other words, they are also good programmers and developers. Being a good developer isn't a day job.

Granted, you can start learning web design today and "graduate" next week. Congratulations! After all, you can create a website. But, a programmer's journey is usually longer.

Tip: if there are sk many people jumping into web design these day, why not go for development/programming? Mobile, Desktop, Web dev, etc.

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!!

Very true.

I'm into SEO and Link building as a Freelancer and I can relate. It took years for me to get to where I am right now.

Now na me dey run from work. Money is really easy to make when you have THE patience and determination.

However, like others have said, the post will do much good if you add cost and duration.


My ultimate undoing was hosting my first ever website in 2009 on a free host: 0fees.net
The site was www.techtom.0fees.net and another one.

The site later went offline with the free hosting guys, 0fees.net.

Op I don't think ur write up is accurate in Nigeria. When u say 'high employment rate', it means that the likelihood of getting employed after completion of such a course is very high. and I don't think that is the case in dis country. I cud b wrong tho. Also, if those certifications are in high demand, one should see announcement for vacancies in companies wishing to employ. I however have never come across any advert 4a system analyst, or a software tester. From observation, I think software developer's have an edge over the others in Nigeria. At least adverts are often placed 4programmers. In developed countries the op's write up would apply, bt sadly d reality is different on ground in dis country. The streets are full of IT certified jobless people.
