OP, I'm sure the reason why you want to go into lecturing is so you can have access to unlimited supply of püssy grin

Talk to higher authority. This is ur career we're talking about. But, better still, put it to God in prayers.

Were you pampered by your parents? Nairalanders, someone is toying with his job ooooooo because of masters oooo
You want to resign to a lesser position when you can choose a part-time course. Maybe you have a sponsor or you do not like the job at all.
Probably someone is waiting for your masters to place you somewhere cos the last I recalled, we have more master's graduate and few lecturing jobs.

Just ranting.

Good morning
It does not matter, his case can be different.

You are a lady, you may have a husband or sponsor to assist you. I'm not sure the op may be in the same shoe as you were.

No, bro. I am a married man with children. Get your acts right and move on. I can't work in a toxic environment.

Once the bsc show na to upgrade and convert from security department to another department

Not so easy in some companies. There's something called "point of entry". Are you aware of the Union tussle with ExxonMobil management last year? It's because of conversion issue with security men

In a federal parastatals especially tertiary institutions
Men conversation is so easy
In fact the school management encourage it by bringing out a circular to inform the staffs who are willing to convert from one department to another.
After that they conduct exams like a screening test for them

20 years from now, you will be disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did, so throw off the bowlines and sail away from the safe harbor.

If you believe in prayers, pray.

Analyse the worst case scenarios with each line of action you have to make.

Your happiness is in your hands.

Bamz you are too much,God bless,however what some of us don't understand here is that am not leaving the job,but to stoop to a lower cadre that won't make them feel insecure of my position so I could have the chance and its even part time am asking for approval for.Doctor has given me certificate of fitness I see no reason why I should be told because of my health I won't be given approval

Chase your dreams...just make sure you have enough savings to carry you for at least 6 months!

Enrolling for a part-time Master's degree is not chasing your dream.

There is provision in the official handbook.of the organisation for someone who has worked for over two years to apply for part time studies,and I qualified and have followed due process,but its still a surprise to me that health grounds would be used against me when my doctor has certified me fit.

Bros, make your priority right. Master's degree holders wish they get a position like you. Abeg reason your priority right. Master's, lecturing job can come later at your convenience. Don't be carried away with the euphoria of having some money or someone sponsoring you, afterall you can do an online course and retain your full time job. My little advice thou.

Good evening everyone, my name is Augusta Ehihebolo, a Mechanical Engineering graduate with HND (upper credit) and B.Eng (2.1 - Awaiting result).

I have basic knowledge in AUTO-CAD and Piping design.

I am highly dedicated to work and have problem solving skill.

Please I desire an opportunity to prove myself.

Please Nairalanders, help a sister with a job link/opportunity. Thanks

Dear All, recently I wrote a piece https://www.nairaland.com/4951605/female-boss...please-advice-me-please#up about my immediate boss.

However I decided to take the bull by the horn by calling the head office to ask for the approval letter I was expecting for studies since I had applied earlier with my admission letter (masters) and presented a certificate of medical fitness from my recent ill health as requested by the head office.

Surprisingly on calling the head office I got a response that because I recovered recently I will not be granted approval to go for my postgraduate studies even after presenting a certificate of medical fitness as requested with school fees being paid,i tried to explain that i followed due process but the head told me never to talk on the issue again.

Personally I feel I should resign from my present position to a little lower position as to have time to pursue my studies which will eventually lead me to my career dream(lecturing) or should I talk to a higher authority? Please what best advice can I get know, thanks.
Resigning from your present position to a lower position won't be a bad idea if:
- it will be accepted in the company
- it will not have a negative effect on your financial statues
- it will finally help achieve your aim

But again, I suggest you first talk to a higher authority, there is no harm in trying
