I Got An Offer In A Telecommunication Firm At Last... by bigwizzy001(m): 6:53am On Jul 03, 2016
Hello Nairalanders,

I want you to help me thank God. I've been job-hunting for the last one year. I finished nysc July 2nd, 2015 and got my employment letter July 2nd, 2016 (Isn't that wondeful?). Its a telecom company(Phase3 Telecom) with HQ in Maitama, ABJ and I've been hired as a Network/Field Engineer. I've been scheduled to start next month in Offa, kwara state but some things are baffling me which I seek the help of nairalanders for .

1. I will like to be enlightened on the living standard of Offa (Stayed in Ilorin for some years though)

2. Like how expensive is rent in Offa?

Thanks...

Thanks so much @Yak... I'm very familiar with Ilorin either but with your stated cost breakdown for Ilorin, I also sud be able to live with utmost comfort in Offa. I'm having this feelings there's no way Offa will be costlier than Ilorin being the capital city...

Congrats and welcome to telco. I'm sure you'll find it interesting as long as you have this "never give up" spirit.

To your questions; as a field engineer, you shouldn't bother about standard of living in offa as you'll hardly work within offa. Even if you work within offa, you'll end up moving from one site to another and standard of living will be the least of your worries.


As for your second question, I know for a fact that rent isn't costly in offa. Just bear it in mind you'll practically be dashing your landlord the rent as you'll hardly stay in the house cheesy.

Congrats once more, wishing you all the best.

Congratulations...Offa is an okay town..what majority of people in the so called cities and towns fail to understand is ; it is better to live in a 3 bedroom flat in Offa than 1 small room in okokomaiko.

Offa has more than okay neighbourhod for your current profile to meet some of your social needs as well.

If you focus and improve yourself on the job..your stay there maybe temporary. Telecoms firms always prefer their best technical hands where their biggest infrastructure and customers are.

@Frostty, so painful to hear that you just left couple of months back. I would have loved meeting a nairalander in person for the very first time. As for linking me up with pple, baba I'm game... Give me contacts, lemme make fwends before getting there so life won't be boring...

@Felaak47, good to hear you're from Offa. Pls are u still there? If yes, send me ur mobile number. Which part of Offa enjoys light the most?

Thanks @ VhatAmazingDude, I'm grateful...

OP, quick advice: be weary of how much of personal information you give online because you don't know who's who.

Congratulations!

As regards your Offa question, I am so sorry I have no idea.

you are very correct a two bed room flat ranges between 150-200k per annum. Plus the fact that offa will surely be much more lesser. @ OP congrats, I pray my own dream job comes very soon and for every other nairalander
