Working as a contract staff in a bank is a bad idea. It's depressing. It's better to be employed as a graduate Trainee, or as an experienced staff.

How can you spend 16years working as a contract staff in a bank

You should have done a Bsc (even if it's part time) and then looked for a permanent role even if it meant crossing to another sector.

I think you got too comfortable and complacent during your time at the bank and you failed to develop yourself further career wise.

You could have done TOP professional courses such as ACCA or CFA.

Guess all you can comprehend is the whole story is the mistake he made? Someone is in a predicament and all you can do is insult him. I pray one day you don't get in his situation so you don't get to forget I'm, am...

Hello All,

Top of the moment to everyone on this platform.

I need to table my plight to every one who's willing to pick up a banking job as a contract staff. This is my experience,
at Age 25, I decided to work with my ND certificate, hence my parent struggled to sponsor my studies, I put in for HND part time, having the hope after my HND program, that I have the better chance to secure a job else where with my current certificate knowing fully fully well that I have 5yrs experience.

I was amazed during my interview sessions with employers that it would be unfair for them to employ me when they have CONTRACT staff with them that have not been converted.

Now, am 41, my experience in interview sessions is terrible, after all questions and interaction, I would be made to know that I have built over the years a good CV even in. a banking sector but the BARRIER is AGE.

With this am frustrated, am like what's happening in our country, is it a crime for some to Age, I mean my experience should be speaking for me and not refraining me from certain opportunities.

The recession now has even worsened all as since 2015 am out of job when Ecobank disengaged there staff of their duties.

it takes the Glory of Almighty for my Living cos I have nothing am doing right now!

So I implore all that may pick interest to banking job as contract workers to think well and not waste their precious and youthful age with this self centred firms.
Thank you,,
YewaLand.

I won't be surprised if he was a teller or bulk room cashier or customer service rep throughout that 16 years.

The OP clearly lacked ambition or any serious career goals.

I'm not trying to excuse his use of English but when you're jobless as a man, correct use of English will be least of your problem. I'm sure he has a family to feed and his use of English does not pay rent either.

Well, when you are unemployed with 16 years banking experience and desperately in need of a job, use of English DOES matter.

For example, you cannot send a CV, cover letter or an email full of grammatical errors to a potential employer and expect them to take you seriously.

But you yourself, your communication is not perfect. There is nothing like "Anyways" , spelling error "highligted". He who comes to equity must come with clean hands.

You are right but he is not writing CV, cover letter or applying for a job. He is just looking for positive comment and possibly a solution to his problem.

save enough?
it will interest you to know that the salary for bank contract staff is closer to something for feeding and transportation than something that can better your life. the case becomes worse when the person involved is based in a major city like Lagos and Abuja. In that case, it is living from hand to mouth whilst suffering and smiling. Above all, most people become comfortable and some are stupid to the extent of competing with core staff on a higher salary.
The koko is that the guy got a little bit over relaxed.

I believe the use of English will be a turn off if the employer can't find the skills he need in you. I mean, if I need a good software engineer and he's sitting right in front of me, I don't care if he can't spell his name
