I understand exactly how it feels as someone who's had similar experience with a leading bank in Nigeria too. Although, I started and finished my 5 years banking career as a contract staff in a very Okay department but the story is very much alike bcuz contract jobs are dead end jobs... At least in Nigeria.
Since you've got businesses to pay your bills, I think you're well placed to horn a skill, and there's nothing stopping you from delving into IT if that's what you want.
I will suggest a few that might not take much of your time to learn...and top of my list is Database Administration. You can Google what it takes to be a database administrator to get started.
Another one that might appear slightly easier is to learn UI/UX. It means user interface and user experience. This skill is good for people who are naturally good designers.
There's also frontend web developer and back-end web developer.... And over time you can up your game and become a full stack developer (that's for someone who has a combination of frontend and back end skills).
Those are like the easiest I know of but the big fish in IT will require lengthy time and resources to be market ready. Those are software engineering and development (cross platform), Business analytics (i.e as a data scientist), Artificial intelligence and robotics, and so on.
Am on course to becoming a frontend developer myself and I can tell you it's not been easy. It requires extraordinary courage and zeal to remain focused while learning online on your own without being pressured by anyone.
Pls keep me posted on what you finally settled for and I won't mind if we can create a group or community of IT enthusiasts who are coming into the field as newbies. This is to encourage each other and learn from the group as well as creating a healthy competition to spur us on.
Lemme know what you think about it.

All I.T Skills are lucrative at any time, but the challenge is you must be well trained to be at least a Professional before seeking employment.
I don't know of any real I.T Pros who doesn't earn 7- 8 figures yearly.
I'm sure you'll wonder who is a Professional as many always claim they are one.
The I.T levels (According to me)
1. Associate (More like a Beginner) in Nigeria most at this level doesn't have a chance at all, because the competition level is high.
2. Professional (A good level to seek employment) This level proof you have 3-5 years experience on the subject matter (though you don't really need to spend 3-5 years in training).
3. Expert (Consultants) It means you are authority in your choosen field.
Pls whatever I.T skills you later want to settle for, just don't waste your money on quickies (2 wks or 1 month) training.
Get Trained by the Pros It maybe time consuming but the reward his high.

Bro, I'm at that beginners stage and I understand there's no cutting corners in IT bcuz it's a competence based field. Hence I agree with you 100% that one needs to be trained by experts who are established in the field and more like being mentored all through.
The challenge for many who fall in my category has been getting a lead who's ready to sacrifice little of their time for newbies like me albeit their very busy schedules. My mentor in the field I currently in Malta where he works as an expatriate.
If you know any Nairalander who can be my guide on this path, plz refer me.

Your position wasn’t contract, then what?
As a full staff of Executive Trainee position, your take home is about 170k. You mentioned your colleague who got promoted twice in 10 years and if it’s a proper promotion (without notch), that means he/she was promoted to ABO/ABE/SE (all second level depending on the bank) or BO/BE (3rd level) and the salary of an ABO/ABE/SE is between 360k-380k depending on the bank and for BO/BE, about 400k-420k.
So tell me, how are bankers not well paid. Any banking salary less than 100k is contract. Some banks have made it appear like it’s not contract whereas they are not directly employed by the bank, rather vendors. The contract marketers earn salary plus commission on deposit.

Very much correct
|Re: Do Not Accept A Banking Job - I Refused To Listen by chineduuf: 6:25pm On Aug 04, 2020|
And you failed to make a contact list in 10years. You failed in your own respect too, don't blame the bank alone.
You may commit to a data analytics career. You can gain employment in almost any sector.
Wish you the best in life.

You can learn programing then work as android developer. It could take you 2yrs plus. Don't even try these new stuffs like artificial intelligence or machine learning as that require you know how to code, then maths or statistics knowledge..

I'm mentoring a lot of people already, and my Core Competence is in Networking and Security. I also run a Cisco Networking Academy (online training portal) with many courses centered around Networking and Security.
The advantage is after the training, the certificate is borderless and known all over the world.

Most bank tellers usually steal from the counting money....you have to be careful of any bank teller because most of them are more expert than Armed robbers... I can't marry any bankers because they could have learn different method of stealing your money directly from your bank accounts,

Thanks for this detailed explanation. It was until this year that I discovered that most Software Engineers in Banks are employed by big tech vendors who have signed agreements with the bank, so the employees are directly under those vendors on contract. Quite weird, that alone is a red flag for me.
I also found out recently from a GTB staff that you get promoted every 4 years as GTB staff. Maybe she was lying, maybe not.
All in all, 360k-380k is a good income if growth is allowed, but promotion twice in 10 years feels like Israelites in the land of Egypt.

I'm in network engineer I have CCNA training certificate but I need more knowledge and skills.
Can you please share your contact details to me.

FellaG, there is no roadmap to success. There is no trending IT skill that will automatically lead to success. It is the same mistake u made 10 years that you might make again, God forbid. Because ten years ago u were should I say seduced by bankers image and lifestyle, now u are asking to be influenced into picking up an IT skill. What u don't know is that success is all by the grace of God and what u are destined to be. There is one thing bros, at least one thing u can do very well right from when u were a teenager. One thing that even if they wake u in the middle of the night u will do it effortlessly. Now I don't know what it is, it could be u take amazing photos of people and things, it could be u make people laugh just by talking, it could be u are a great cook, it could be whenever something is faulty u identify the faults and fix it at least to the best of ur ability, it could be u have sweet mouth that is u can convince people, it could be u have great fashion sense. It could even be that you are skilled at sniffing out business and money making opportunities. The thing is you and only u know what you're extremely good at, it doesn't have to be a skill but just a passion or intuition that u can build upon and develop. People who are great, as in great at what they do actually ENJOY doing it and not just for the money in it.

|Re: Do Not Accept A Banking Job - I Refused To Listen by Nobody: 7:22pm On Aug 04, 2020|
Bank job isn't the least paying job, how many engineering companies except the "multinational" and "oil and gas", pay a graduate trainee above 100k, most are between 60 and 100k. If you are employed as a graduate not a teller(contract), you are paid at least 120k as a staff, but as a teller you are under a contract and your salary doesn't go beyond certain point irrespect of the time you put in and it can't be compare to those employ as a full staff.
The disadvantage of working in a bank is they be can sacked at anytime and it become worst when you didn't study anything related to the banking sector because the esperience you get can't be use elsewhere, and it consumes most of your time.
|Re: Do Not Accept A Banking Job - I Refused To Listen by pocohantas(f): 7:30pm On Aug 04, 2020|
I will never understand that part. The other one is “bankers are useless outside the bank”.
Is a doctor useful outside the hospital? Or is a lawyer useful outside legal duties? Except they work in a designated unit in another sector. This is where some “bankers“ have an edge. Why would anyone be useful outside the bank because they can count money or fill account opening forms?
Someone said a HR is not a “banker“, but a HR can have opportunities to function in HR units across sectors. Same way a core staff can jump from one bank to another. The ones with meaningful experience or skills enter some private organizations to assume supervisory roles. Ex-bankers should stop demonizing the industry that gave majority of them hope and money to buy their first set of good-looking clothes and cars.

It's all about personal development. Many doctors are useful outside the hospital. Same with lawyers and other professionals.
