Thanks alot bro. I have traversed more than you can think. I work with the government now though. And all the skills I've acquired in private coy / practice are really making a star of me now. I am quite contented ATM and hibernating till I move up to the next phase. I have dropped the practicality and acquired masters and working at my PhD. I really like the exposure I have had. I'll only keep more informed and in touch.

Wayaa007 I dont know your location but if you're outside Lagos, you need to move to Lagos ASAP, google IT companies, do extensive research and start submitting CV on the Island. Like you said you just came back from India in June, not too long if you ask me but i understand the frustration. My friend was in a similar situation in 2014, CCNA CCNP CCIE (exam), he even attempted the 8hrs CCIE practical but wasnt successful. The 1st job he got when he got back to Lagos from India was 80k, after 5-6 months, he got another place with 120k salary and less than 6 months, he got a bigger offer in PH close to 300k. So just exercise a little patience, do your research and pray to God fervently, i still recommend 3 days deliverance at MFM and i know your story will change.

PS: still waiting for you to contact me. Thanks

Thanks bro, I've sent a message to you

A brilliant write up by the OP. It has become most evident that IT is the future of the world. Please i need experts' advice. I am a fresh graduate, and recently got employed by a mid level company as a business developer (entry level). I had the intent to undergo a training in web design but now a little bit confused. Weeks ago, the company had a rift with the IT guy, and he left. Management mentioned that i take up the responsibility of managing our site (built with WordPress) until a new IT person is employed. The confusion now is whether to proceed with the web design which has being my intent, or to undergo WordPress training in order to be able to manage our site. Note: I am a newbie in the terrain of ICT.

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.
Based on ur last paragraph, are u saying one can learn online, as in do courses online without having to go to a physical training Institute?

Also, like the fact that u talked on the not so rosy part of ICT/IT...

Thanks!

True...

And to add, all these shouting cisco upandan, CCNA, CCNP etec, all that is just rubbish..you can do that and may not even get a job, clocking 8-5, thats fact. Infact, you most likely wont, because those are certifications even little kids are wielding.

If you want to be useful to yourself, first become a network technician before you metamorphose to a network engineer, if you want. that way, you know everything- in a new construction with a blueprint or floor plans, you can set up your entire data network from access points, comm rooms, cables, racks, switches and all. You can punch down, terminate your RJ 45 on modules and fix them on face plates, install them on walls, where a user will set up his computer. In the equipment, you know exactly where each wire or cable is going, you can tone to locate cables and patch them in, set up everything and genrally do plenty of management in there

To be a network technician, you are basically an electrician- albeit a low voltage one- you can set up data networks from cartons of cables doing cable runs- fishing cables through celings and walls, terminating them on patch panels, installing servers, and switches and installing and mounting racks, doing cable management and all- inshort you can integrate a data centre.

So interms of nomenclature, what are you? You are a low voltage technician/engineer, you are a telecom technician/engineer too (doing voice, video and data), meaning like i said, you can plan and design and install a data network, you can troubleshoot phones (66 and 110 blocks), do Voice over IP, install and configure IP Cameras (be it in shoprite, Next, or traffic cameras).

Knowing this prepares you to be a business man, doing cisco or all those certifications prepares you to be an employee- a big organization must have a network for you to manage, or administer, right? KNowing what i said above makes you confiddent- you can put in for any bid, or tell any developer developing, say- a hotel- 'hey, leave all your low voltage needs to me, i will setup your data network. For a small 50room hotel, you can collect N7m- labor, not materials.

You can put in for any bid- if EFCC are building their 23 storey headquaters, you put in for the bid- imagine running cables on 23 floors, installing access points, all over, communications cabinets on every floor, dropping everything down a main or central equipment room? If you have the capacity, you can collect N600m from there.

The only person competiting with you in Nigeria will be Huawei, but let Huawei take the big jobs of N500m or N1.2b, you will be pretty busy with all the small jobs within your neiborhood of N5m, N10m

How does being CCNA or CCNE help you? Can that help you fish a cat5 cable or fibre, through a hollow wall? or concrete wall for that matter? Or through a ceiling? Or mount a rack? Or install blade servers with hundreds of wires running underneath the floors? You must do all this before you go and start troubleshooting and subnetting and creating subnet masks, no? We are talking practical knowledge here.

And there are certifcations for this- level 1 installer, level II installer, copper, or installer fibre and the likes, then you move to OSP- Outside plant. Where the real big money is- those who run fibre optic cables outside- on poles or underground.

Learn all this, thank me later
good day sir! I must say I am really inspired by ur write up, cos I believe that knowing basics is the best way of learning anything instead of jumping steps.

I would love to follow the path u mentioned above in learning ICT/IT but I don't have an idea of the things u mentioned.

Sir, if u don't mind, I will appreciate it if u give me a guide on how to go about it, I can work with u as an apprentice if it's fine by u.

Thanks!

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!!

But bro, you guys often fail to acknowledge one fact, there are few jobs, what do u want a fresh Telecoms Engineer to do while there are no jobs? Run off to do a masters degree or go somewhere, get trained, study and get certificates rather than sitting at home.

I took a year off my job to visit India and gather knowledge and certificates. The field isn't too different from the classroom, especially in networks and Server. I remember several times using remote access to help my friends on the field. I used SOlved an SCCM problem without having experience on ever using a Live SCCM server.

Young guys out there, if you can't get a job, and you have the funds, please pursue the certificates and the knowledge, it will always pay you in the long run. Especially when you start working and have no time to study for any exam.

And like the poster rightly said, you need to have a Lab to practice. I UNL, and VIRL I use to test topologies, I even integrate them with active Directory, SCCM and cloud, and still try to hack them...lol, all for fun!

Bt jst lyk we all know, the Nigerian package is almost always all theory, and very little or no practical. Bottom line is, I would appreciate a mentorship and internship opportunity to help build my exposure and practical skills. pls can I contact u privately?
