I agree with MoonWater.
Plus, many people on this thread, from their comments here, have shown they are in the IT field and very experienced. Nothing stops you reaching out to them and developing the required skills.

Since I graduated over 8years ago I've only worked in a formal organization for 3weeks,I fired myself when my female boss started sending me silly errands like I was her boy boy,the painful part was that we were age mates, the pay was just 230k monthly,luckily for me they pay on the third week,I texted her as soon as I got alert,the text read ''SARAH WE'RE DONE".
Since then I've ventured into different businesses, now I am my own boss.
grin grin grin
Female bosses though... grin

Yes and I was later asked to come back. By then I found a better paying and far more satisfying job.

If you are a chartered accountant with years of experience, you will earn more than that in a month


Says who?
Just a selected few. Some are not even earning up to 200k and they're in their mid -late 30's.

Honestly I don't know where or how to start but one thing I want to point out here is that nobody should even think of giving up! When God is not done with you, you can't be done with yourself.

The job will come today and be gone tomorrow. Got something little but CORONA took it away and I am back to where I was.

A graduate with no job and a small business that can barely feed 1 month! I mean it when I say that (Na make man no just dey sleep for house)

Learnt Skills and got certifications in Web Design, Graphics Design, Project Management and Currently going through lots of free online courses in Digital Marketing (SEO, Email Marketing, Social Media Marketing etc) as money no dey to go for paid class.

Doing all this with no backup, no link, no connection no family wealth but with God's total backing that He will make a way where there seems to be no way.

All I need right now is connections and links to make use of all this skills I have learnt and gotten to be able to make ends meet, raise my own family, make my mother proud and give back to the society.

My prayer is that for as many people out there pushing it hard, may Almighty God show forth in sovereignty and help us and make way for us.

I feel your pain, we've all been there. I don't think a bet9ja shop is an ideal environment.

What I used to do years ago, is to work when nepa brings light. Try to study the pattern of how the give you electricity and work during that time. You can also try to get an extra library. Put it an effort to learn HTML and CSS and we'll talk once you master it. Good luck.


Sir, I'm good at HTML5 CSS3 and JavaScript (Vanilla). Have you got any job for me?

I can never forget my short stay in kogi state

The role I was employed for had not even be put in place

Days later they sent me a termination letter stating various untrue reasons as my offence for termination

First time posting on nairaland,

Let me share my experience

Am a freelancer specialized in Graphic design (Brand identity design and visual communication). Have worked remotely for different establishment via upwork although i have a full time paying job presently before the COVID-19 issue.

Around last month, i applied for a remote position as a graphic designer for a company in Germany via upwork, luckily i was shortlisted for interview(video via zoom)....After 2 weeks it was my turn to be interviewed, i was sent some messages as regards the time for the interview...to cut the long story short, i got the job....the offer was not bad....$10/hr to work 40hrs/week. There after on-boarding was done for all remote workers that was employed via zoom.

On a faithful day i got a mail that there would be a meeting with the CEO of the company, which was going to be our first time meeting with him via zoom and duration was 30mins....The meeting was scheduled for 10:00am, i got prepared and suddenly i was welcomed by a frustrating network (etisalat), God...it was so frustrating....i tried all i could cause it was the only option i had at that moment....but to no avail...i finally got a stable network at 10:25 or so......Having worked with white's remotely, i know how they operate, i knew this job offer might be terminated...I sent a mail immediately after the meeting that i had network glitch (mind you this isn't my first zoom meeting).

Some few days later, the CEO sent a message to me and terminated the contract. I was speechless but mehn i learnt my lesson...... sad

But God so good, i got some other jobs but will still keep pressing on!

-- I read the thread and saw some people doubting a N750k remote job------This is what i have got to say below

IT IS REAL......

- Learn a skill preferably in IT, be very good at it........you will get good remote jobs with mouth watery offer and crazy benefits.
- I have friends that earn $2500 comfortably every month working remotely.

Gracias!

Woah! Such a sad story...

When working remotely, it is always advisable to have a backup, maybe 2 backups.

Good thing you've gotten something else
