4 Things You Need To Work For A Foreign Firm Remotely From Nigeria by PatrickOkunima(m): 5:05am On Mar 23
Some years ago, all anyone needed to live a successful life in Nigeria was to get a university degree. While this lasted, it was great. However, as it stands, that is no longer the case. A university degree in Nigeria is no longer a guarantee of a successful future. Although not many people are aware of this, those that are aware have started giving freelancing a lot of attention.

Freelancing is a great way to break free from the holds of unemployment in Nigeria. However, if you must get good value for the time you put into work, you might need to find a job abroad that allows you to work remotely from Nigeria. Contained in this article are tips to help you find a job abroad that allows you to work remotely in Nigeria.

1. Learn a Skill and Hone It

If you are looking to work remotely, there are various career paths you can choose. With this is mind, one step to take is to pick a skill, learn it, and hone it. You are at liberty to pick any skill you consider good enough. You might decide to learn a skill because it is linked to your field of study. However, regardless of what relationship such skill has to your field of study, you must be passionate about a skill before deciding to get better at it.

When you work remotely, you will not have anyone putting direct pressure on you to get done with a job. This is one reason you need to work on a skill that you are really interested in and not just a skill you think will make you a lot of money.

After choosing a skill you are really interested in, you need to become a master at it. This is one way, you can stay ahead of the overwhelming competition in the freelancing industry.

2. Come up with a Catchy Resume

In its simplest form, a resume is a summary of your CV. In it are your work experience, as well as your educational qualifications. To make it easy for whatever agency is hiring you to go through your resume easily, you have to ensure it contains only details that are important. If you are not sure you know how to develop a good resume, it is okay if you get someone tom do so for you for a fee.

3. Stay in Touch with Other Professionals

The world of freelancing is not one where isolation should exist. You might be really good and this might make you feel you can work alone. Nonetheless, always stay in touch with other people in your field. This way, you can always be in the know of what other professionals are discovering.

Since you work remotely, it might be difficult to meet people in person. So, when you come across someone you are certain you can learn a lot from, ensure you follow them closely.

4. Discipline is Key

It is one thing to get a remote job abroad and another to be able to maintain the job. The world of working remotely is a lot dependent on referrals. So, if you must get referred to other clients, you will need a good level of discipline.

Working remotely looks very cool. However, if you must be successful at it, you must learn to give a 100% even when no one is supervising you. Unlike people in defined offices, when you work remotely, you might fail to set your priorities right and this can make you lose the most important job opportunities.

Nicely written. I think the average Nigerian Youth wants the money with the process to get the money.

They will ask you "bro show me the way na", the moment you show them what it takes to be on that way they disappear...

Nevertheless, it takes more than just day dreaming to work for a foreigh firm...

Nice post OP. You see this thing called remote work sounds like a myth to a lot of people especially because they don't see a lot of people in their area do it. But there are a lot of people keying into it. People need practical steps to understand how this works and most importantly they need mentors and need to hone their skills. A lot of Indian's work for companies remotely and their English isn't even that good. Imagine earning in dollars legit?? So you earn 1k dollars a month, imagine how your life in Nigeria will be. We need to explore this working remotely for foreign organizations more. Zigarmy is trying to achieve this by making sure that people are first of all grounded in their skills and they can connect with mentors who will carry them all the way, with just WhatsApp classes, skype, and free tools that we can use. I hope we can all utilize this opportunity and better our lives. Thanks again op.

Will keep in touch ASAP.

And for the umpteenth time,
We aren't bro,
We are simply WE

Below is just one of our Goldmine working online from our darling country for foreign companies,
It requires a lot of your time (ONLINE) and effort though,
More of the reasons WE are WE....

Social Media Analyst

To work from home as a Social Media Analyst, you will need to your marketing background to improve and build a companies’ online presence and brand awareness through the efficient use of social media networks, blogs and online search engine optimization.
Interestingly, it is a growing area of business marketing that requires individuals with strong online communication and business analytical skills.

 As a social media analyst
, you will be saddled with the responsiblity of creating and maintaining a company’s presence on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram amongst others. In some cases, you will be expected to maintain the company’s blogs. You will also be in charge of increasing the company’s brand exposure through Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and by finding ways to use these keywords in marketing strategies. 

In Nigeria, you can charge between N60,000 to N200,000 every 2 weeks working from home as a social media analyst; depending on the company and what they require of you in terms of expectations. Bear in mind that companies feel more comfortable working with social media analysts who have worked in the same capacity with other brands so you might want to garner some experience in this regard.

And our past experience will always speak for us @MANNABBQGRILLS

Check the number of the mentions below on the screenshot,
from only members here and this is just like 1/5 of the total mentions.
So this part of what you sell yourself, (your brand ) with to the foreign companies,
They want to see how much response you can get online.
They appreciate that more than shares and likes.
Anyone can just click like or share button, but to actually quote you and type takes much effort.
It means they really felt your presence.
(Mentions from clients, friends and everybody generally)
Oan, Before we edited and posted this screenshot, we can see we've gotten another 43 mentions, under 3 mins,
Isn't God just so wonderful wink

You said 4 things you need. You didnt mention electricity and internet. 2 things which are a luxury and unavailable to the average person. So how do you link up with professionals? Telepathy?
