I am not sure to be honest .... a lot of these roles seem saturated these days. For IT , i am clueless . You can look into Cloud as well , things like AWS seems to have a lot of roles, but how to get in i dont know . Usually a job description can guide you , use that to build

Go on jobserve, jobsite, indeed etc, look at the job requirements for those jobs and then do the needful.

Also stop those courses you're doing - They're completely useless

They are not completely useless bro. My cissp alone literally added more than 200 pounds to my daily rate.

In the country, they don't focus too much on paper like naija... It's all about what you know and your ability to demonstrate your knowledge confidently.

cissp is not the same as N+ or A+

A Btech is more valuable than those courses sef.

If you're looking at it from the perspective that no knowledge is wasted, then I agree. But in terms of value to CV? Nahhh

Bro, you know how this business is. Ordinary 2nd line guys now are expected to be VCPs..

A+ is literally how to plug a computer into power supply and make it on.

Thank you for your comments.

I actually am doing A+ and N+ just because I have lots of experience on it from when I was in uni in naija but I have no experience in a proper working environment for them. That's what made me decide to go for them.
And I think these certs are actually a good place to start for me to get used to self study and exams etc.

You have to start from somehere. The comptia triad will get your foot in the door into probably IT help desk.
From there you can then pave your own path.

I did security plus in 2009 and it did help with my other certs.

Nursing will continue to be one of the highest in demand jobs in the UK for the foreseeable decades. Reason being that pay remain lower than other developed countries, fewer UK people studying nursing (and medicine) due to poor work/life balance and stress caused by chronic staff shortages and increasing work demands, BREXIT (large chunk of EU nurses leaving the UK), UK nurses and even international nurses in the UK emigrating to Canada, Australia and USA, and an ageing population.

Thanks very much ��
If she really wants to do nursing to practise in the UK, she should not be deterred by potential lack of job opportunities or unfavourable immigration policies. The prospects are very bright. My opinion.

A guy I know recently relocated to the UK and is tired of his marriage. No children involved yet, and about 10k savings in the bank.

How does he go about it, and will he get burnt in any way. His wife is an HCA. Marriage is 1yr

The guys here have said it all. Do you wanna go into Hardware/Software/Networking? That would also direct where you should target. These days I think it’s software n coding that’s in vogue, not too sure though. Firstly your current experience is what would help you land a job then you begin to upskill from there.
I hope this helps

Definitely not the right person for this. My guess should be to contact a lawyer if he’s 100% certain he wants out and do the due process.

No both of them are Medics on tier 2. No property yet, and the lady refused to be a dependent under the guy. He cooks for himself, does everything like a single man, while the lady is also in another city, and visits mostly weekends. He is tired of being single, and married, and having a lady he thinks doesn't give him regard or have any real marriage values. She controls him, and always wants to have the last say. Unfortunately it's just one year.

Any long term consequence of divorce?

Will he pay any benefits at all?

Etc

While divorce may not be the best thing, if you are fed up, leave now that you have no ties (child). It's good that she's employed and so the split should be around 50-50 and you should not have to support her financially. Whatever you do, try and avoid lawyers except she involves a lawyer and even if she does, please convince her and try to settle amicable else you will spend the money you don't have on lawyers.

But didnt they date or know this before .... this country and adult life is not easy and does add extra pressure especially when the couple are apart due to work . ... also this is 2019, the year of women doing everything for a man has long vanished oo. Even control why must one person control the other. Marriage for me its a partnership

I personally don't really know anything about divorce but since no child then legally it won't be too complicated . Usually divorce dont have consequences, except if one dependant on the other for paper

The IT world is evolving towards modern workplace / automation. Those courses doesn't even cut it at all and forget experience for uni in naija as it's a different ball game entirely here. Concentrate on the world of cloud computing and do certifications relating to the cloud

It's not as easy lol, if there was a court wedding, you need to go back and file for separation and/or divorce and there is a process.
If there was no court and no proof of marriage then you can just split happily. #my2cents

A man should know what his goal is in life and where he is going. This must be done first before finding a woman who will want to help him achieve his goal. If as a man you have not got your act together, you might fall into a situation where the woman will dictate to you where to go. The man is the leader in the home.

Every young (and old) man, before getting involved in a long-term relationship, should spend time to understand the nature of women, especially in the current global war against men.
