Get A Job Abroad From Nigeria – Top 5 Trending Skills To Consider by BiafranBushBoy: 11:30am On Oct 09, 2017
Interested in getting a job abroad from Nigeria? I will show you what job sectors to target. A lot of people may ask why I am still in the country despite knowing all of these. The fact remains that not everyone has the time to dedicate themselves to leaving the shores of Nigeria. I have seen and helped a whole lot of people get jobs in countries like Australia, Canada and even Germany, and it isn’t rocket science but at the same time, it is time taking.

If you have the urge to get a job abroad from Nigeria and leave the country, then you should read the post and do the needful. If you have ever taken note of the European CV format (you can request for it by by clicking here, you would see a portion that is dedicated to the skills you have acquired with respect to the job advertised.

Whites don’t employ the way we do here in Nigeria. If you don’t have the right skills, then there is no space for you. Companies abroad can be very willing to sponsor anyone from any part of the world, as long as you have what they are looking for.

The question in your mind “Why should they consider me as a Nigerian?”

The answer is “Because you are cheap!” No disrespect, but hiring a front-end developer who is a citizen of the same country is very expensive for the employer of that firm, and he knows it. Hence he is seeking out for cheap labour, with the hope to maximize profit.

Without wasting many words, what are the skills that can get you a job abroad from Nigeria with ease?

I don’t want it to sound like the regular jargons you have always heard in the past about how ICT is making the next billionaires outside and inside Nigeria. Are you looking for a reason to venture into ICT?

Countries like Canada and Australia every year open up their doors to immigrants with these superb skills. I guess you are wondering if they won’t have a saturation of ICT gurus.

The answer is NO!!

If America that houses millions of ICT gurus is still accepting talented Tech personalities, why should a country like Australia and Canada who still needs them in bulk suffer from saturation?

Get the right skill, applying for the express visa or attend an Educational Institute in those countries, and watch how they scrabble for your signature – if you are good. What are the trending skills in ICT?

Social Media and Digital Marketing

Are you surprised to see this topping my list? It has been so much bastardized in Nigeria, that we all assume it has no influence again. Social media marketing has topped the vacancy list in several countries abroad for about 2 months now, with companies looking for able hands to manage their online presence.

The world is going digital, so is marketing. Companies are paying through their noses just to have a strong presence online, and rake in more sales than ever from the online market. Next time you see a Digital Marketer, treat him or her with much respect.




Front-End and Back-End Developers [Full Stack Developers]

The whole world loves them! Show me a developer who isn’t sought after, both outside and inside the country, and I will show you a blind man who can drive 100k/m safely. Software and Web Application

Developments are becoming one of the most sought-after courses in the world. The good news is that online few people are interested in acquiring this skill – hence the deficit it suffers from the low workforce.

Hardware Engineers

In case you might want to ask “What about those technicians who have shops all around the metropolis of Lagos” might be the next question? The fact is that they have no certificate to back up their knowledge claims. Being a Technician and an Engineer are two different things. While one understands the repairs and working principles, the other only understand repairs. There are lots of Technicians out there with little Hardware Engineers.




Sales and Marketing

Sales are one of the integral processes of the survival of any company. Salespeople are one of those that can easily land a job abroad from any part of the world.



Are you a salesperson in Nigeria?

Are you undervalued and insulted in Nigeria?

Do you have some certifications to back-up your sales experience?

Good news is that your sales skill is wanted in places that appreciate your capabilities. Salespeople in foreign countries are suffering from the low workforce, and they are open to accepting immigrants who are ready to do the dirty job for a good pay and handsome commission.


Graphic design, Photography & Illustration

The numbers of businesses that are dependent on graphics designing are continuously on the increase. If you are superbly good with what you do in graphics, then all you have to do is attach your superbly executed job to your CV and request for an interview.



Many Nigerian Graphic artists don’t really know the potentials that come with such skills. Aside from earning a good income on freelance sites, that might be your flight tickets to top countries in the world. To increase your chances of landing a ‘heavy’ job, make connections from various design groups, reach out to companies and have an online profile ready for assessment. Graphic designers are among the top earners on several freelance sites, what makes you think you can’t land a regular job abroad? Think about it.

If you know you have the above skills, you can check out the possible way of getting a job abroad from Nigeria. Till we meet again, keep the hustle going.

These days, finding a job out Nigeria has become one of the most trending issues around. Notably after the recent Political party took the helm of affairs. Actually, the reason for it has not been the fault of any political party as such but it has been lingering on for years now. The difference now, is simply the fact that it has become more predominant in this era.

Seeking for a job abroad has landed so many persons into what we call “one chance”. Many have been defrauded yet thousands are still plying that route. And those have become the main reason I have decided to come up with this publications. In one of my many seminars. I shared these 5 Tips to Help You Get a Job Abroad from Nigeria, and trust me, I am still receiving calls from participants of how it has helped them. So today, please pay attention as i will be showing you the 5 Tips to Help You Get a Job Abroad from Nigeria.

The reasons why this article will come handy for graduates who need to get a job abroad from Nigeria is because i have had the privilege question people who were fortunate to get a job abroad from Nigeria. From the tips they gave to me, indeed I saw the need to talk about it. Because what many have been doing and are still doing is a waste of time. Trust me, this article will be of immense help to you. These guys did give me some excellent 5 Tips to Help You Get a Job Abroad From Nigeria, which I will be disbursing for your consumption.

How To Get a Job Abroad From Nigeria

Let no man deceive you. When you acquire a job in a foreign land like Australia, Canada etc, their pay and better work environment are quite the best over what Nigeria can offer. My brother in-law’s friend who relocated with his family to Canada from Nigeria, resigning from the job they where all doing here, has currently finished his duplex here in Lagos and have gotten lots of investment too. Same job, different country resulting to different pay. Don’t get me wrong, there are few jobs that are better off here in Nigeria than those in overseas. But who gets that job? Those with connection.

So getting a job and working in a foreign country has its own advantages in anyone’s professional development and finances too. Many people do have their reasons why they want to get a job oversees. Some are planning to make it a permanent stuff while others want to make it a temporal issue. Just work and return back to Nigeria.

When you work in a foreign country, you are referred to as an expatriate and trust me; it’s not a joke at all. It must be taking with high level of seriousness. Mind you, there are countries that have more advanced technologies than Nigeria, so you need to be ‘special’ to get hired if at all you will be hired. People still believe that by throwing your resume to various foreign companies through some sites and expect a call, still works? Nope. It doesn’t work that way anymore. This is what i see lots of Nigerian graduates do. Throw in their resumes to many foreign job sites and hope to get a call back. Please note that the foreign job market doesn’t work that way.

The question on people’s mind has been why are Nigerian graduates seeking employment elsewhere? It’s a simple straight up answer you gonna have. It’s due to the economic situations in Nigeria which have frustrated so many of Nigerian graduates and now all they could do now is to seek employment options in rising market, such as Dubai, United States, Europe, and the Oceanic countries. Though it’s very exciting to get a job overseas but doing it the right way happens to be the best thing that you could ever have done.

Yeah, the demand for ICT skills is probably really high in all countries. I stumbled upon an article https://www.getcoverletter.com/blog/how-get-job-abroad-nigeria/ which states that the UAE changed their policies for foreigners to attract more smart qualified specialists in IT and social media. So I think you can risk having the necessary skills.

But is there a website or an agency that can help people get these jobs abroad before moving there, especially if you don't have experience?
Like I have here: https://www.atlanticride.com/how-to-get-a-job-abroad/
Because applying for a visa and spending all the money required to get a visa only to get there and start doing a security job is not really enticing.

If there is an agent who does this, the person should reach me, I need help.
