How I Went From 70k Salary To 150k Within 6 Months Without Connections. by Fela40: 3:49pm On Nov 20, 2017
This isn't a hoax. I am not here to sing my own praises. I will be frank as possible. Can you paint the picture of those young boys who left home and ended up in Lagos without any plans for survival? (I am not asking you to take such risk) That was me about 9 months ago.

Searching for jobs through the streets of Lagos and working in building sites just to feed a day opened my eyes to the reality on the ground. I already shared my testimony of my "Grass to Grace" story (Which many people felt twas a lie), but I am not giving up.

After I discovered that self-development (Certifications) was one of the ways to climb to the top in Nigeria, I wasn't looking back on acquiring any possible one out there. My friends always called me wired, but look at me now.

6 Months ago I was employed by a firm that took me off the streets and placed me on a cool salary. I appreciate them a lot and I wish them well.

Just on Thursday, I got an Email that made me resume at my new workplace today and guess what, I am actually leading my unit smiley.

When I saw the salary level, I didn't know whether to smile or to cry.

I am the new Brand and communications manager of a firm in Lagos state. I was hired because I had knowledge of Web Designing and extensive knowledge of Digital Marketing (so I heard).

Who said God isn't good? Thanks to all those who introduced me to ICT. and Thanks to all the meaningful thread on Nairaland.

God bless us all. Abeg follow me dance ooo cheesy

nice...

IIHT Technologies

When we tell them about the potentials that abound for digital marketers, they think we are bluffing. I have seen unemployed people get a job as fast as possible by just learning Digital Marketing.

A lot of youths will claim that 20k is too much for a professional training, but they are thinking of buying a liability (phone) of 50k this black Friday. The question is WHY? angry

Are you interested in securing your future or showing off expensive phones? In the spirit of Black Friday, IIHT is offering a Digital Marketing Traning on the 25th of Nov (This week).

Congrats OP. Yes there are no jobs in this country, but when you walk the streets you might be surprised at the offers that will come your way. Provided you are convincing enough you have something creative to offer and not just your school certificate. Such jobs are comforters and a good way to start life.

I have gotten two jobs by simply walking about from one office to the other asking for openings and dropping my CV where accepted without knowing any person. Doing this, I found that Security men at the gates are one of the most powerful people in an organisation for an outsider. In my current job, I was quickly turned down by the Security man when I stated my purpose. But being someone who has been involved in Sales and Marketing for a couple of months, I pressed on and he bulged and even told me who to meet. The rest today is me earning a better salary than where I was coming from even with better conditions of work and of course a different role.

To me, it all comes down to God's grace and Favour. But One has to make some effort for ones luck to shine.
Congrats OP.

Thank God you can testify.

To those who sit with their computers all day shouting "There are no jobs", just know you are deceiving yourself.

There are jobs, but it is for those with skills.

For me the key is value... You don't even need certifications to have value... Constant learning and development, including volunteering, can make your worth skyrocket.

Its more about what you can do than the amount of papers you have...
