Can One Settle With A Job That Pays Him N140,000. Monthly? by shoturtrap(m): 9:34am On Feb 09, 2013
Am scared with the way things are going in this country. Am currently working with a government firm and they pay me N140k monthly. I really wanna relax and plan my life and also invest heavily cos I love to be an employer of labor. Though they are promising to increase it to N200k or above b4 the end of the year. My question here is, should I settle for this job? Or still be looking out for better ones like the ones in oil firms or is this a very nice offer? Looking at the fact that I wanna save a lot in order to invest an start up my own company. Is this job good for such dreams or project and while doing it make plans to settle and raise a family and a wife which I won't like to see them lack for one day. Is this job cool for that?
Matured minds pls. I need answeres

He is in for the money. The earlier people resort to building a career, the better for them...

Some people earn just 50k. You earn 140k and u are complaining...

I never forced any of u to comment neither did I put a gun to ur head. That's one thing wrong with nigerians. Well thanks all those who gave a nice advise. U don't know me and I don't think I need ur attention for any reason. This question has been bothering me cos I was looking at settling down as a man and also having to save to achieve my personal goals.
A friend told me its still small at that amount (140k) that's why I asked. Don't need ur attention. That's why I said matured minds only.
Looking at nigerias economy, u will understand why and the reason I asked this question. A man in nigeria need to build his own house, buy a nice moderate car atleast, maintain his wife and children, not toi talk of extended family and other miscellenous expenses. Pls if u don't know what to say, my name is SHUT UR TRAP just do that for me.
Pls other married and mature minded people. Gist me. Is it ok to achieve such things I listed above with such a salary?
Thanks for ur advises

MR SHUT UR TRAP....if u av a job dat pays 140k I guess there is a sizeable amount of responsibility attached 2 ur job function,with that I don't expect a mere comment from a frend who said d pay is small is more dan enuf reason 2 take life changin decisions with far reaching consequences. I tink its better 2 ask ursef questions like
1.What really satisfy me?
2.Where do u see ursef in 5yrs?
3.Wats ur definition of success??
And many more.....ur man enuf 2 navigate ur life's ship so be a man and dig deep in order 2 come up wit rational solutions 2 ur so called" dilemma....God b with U

If u like work and be paid 140m, that is ur business. When people are hustling to be paid 40k, you are there talking non.sense.

I understand your frustration towards the responses but you need to understand that you are asking this question in an environment with high rate of unemployment. Many people here are struggling to earn a living so try to be empathetic.
I understand you, bro. 140k is small. Can't really achieve much with that, though it depends on your location and the size of your ambition.
My first advice: be optimistic and grateful in every situation. Be positive. 140k may be small, but you can still achieve a lot if you are positive. So, learn not to complain about your salary. Instead look for ways to improve your earnings.
Second advice: it is not easy to get a job in Nigeria, let alone, an oil and gas jobs. Have a game plan, especially with respect to finance and business ideas. I believe if you have strong and convincing business ideas, you will progress despite current financial challenges
Third advice: the feeling of discontent is natural and normal. No man wants to remain at the same spot forever. Learn to manage the little you have now. If you can't manage 140k p/m in this present economy, I assure you that you won't be able to manage 1 million p/m.
Fourth: Try and network. Make conscious effort to know people and increase your self-worth. Garner as much experience as possible in your present employment and improve your marketability. Improve your communication and social skills. Develop soft skills that will help you both in and outside the job.
Fifth: if possible, get another job (though it's not easy o). There are quite a few jobs that pay far better than 140k. But I'm not asking you to resign this one oh. A bird at hand is better than two in the bush. But always remember that entrepreneurship is more about your ideas and determination, and not just about how much you have to fund it.
These are all I can remember as at now. If I remember any other info, I will get across.
Best of luck
NB. I may make typographical errors 'cos I typed from my phone. Bear with me.
