What Skills Should A Nigerian Acquire Before Traveling To Europe Or America by MisterKings(m): 8:45am On Nov 16
Hello guys, a good morning to you all. This is a question for Nigerians in Diaspora. Just want to know
What skills should a Nigerian acquire before traveling to Europe or America.

I would like to know if it's something one can acquire here or needs to come over there first. We have heard of how some of our people go over there to wash dishes or even dead body (not sure how true that is).

So I just want to know what jobs are best for people coming to Europe like the UK or America like US and Canada from Nigeria.

I have heard some say one should get skills in IT, others say learn to make hair, others say Nursing etc. Thank you.

Please its not all of us that will do I.T related stuff... Can anyone help with real life examples? I believe it's not only .I. T or I.T related that is categorized as a Skill.

UI/UX I am acquainted with that term but I don't even know where to start or what it does. I am a bit interested in software development but my mind has been sunk in filmmaking that I feel e go too much for my brain

Making love? (I don marry)

IT,plumber,hair dresser,barber,welder,builder constructions,shoe maker,truck driver,forklift operator,nurse,medical doctor,chemical Technologist,teacher. In fact here in diaspora its different. Unlike in naija. Once u have these skills u re made. I do not work for anyone here in Canada,people beg me to do work for them and I charge them heavily. I am a plumber but I have a degree in mathematics and studied in naija

You are not just wise, you are smart too. Relocating to any advanced country without having and/or willing to learn a skill ASAP is a disaster!

The events sector has been killed by Covid restrictions ..people are no longer throwing parties/weddings like before ..

If you can learn handy skills like plumbing, gas boiler service/repair, flooring installation like carpet, tiles, luxury vinyl, laminate. . One can make some nice cash on the side doing these alongside your main profession.

Even if you learn IT skills in Nigeria, you will still need to obtain training and certification in whatever country you're going to before you can get a job there.

IT certificates are recognised world wide. I am a Cloud Administrator and I have Azure certificate from Microsoft, Oracle certificate in Cloud computing and they are all recognised world wide.

Nice thread. One of the skills that interest me is truck and forklift operator. Now I want to ask, over there in abroad where do they normally work. And if one wants to learn it here in Nigeria, where can one learn it. I stay in Lagos. Where can I learn it in Lagos State
Re: What Skills Should A Nigerian Acquire Before Traveling To Europe Or America by kizonero(m): 11:56pm On Nov 16
Pls is there any school in Lagos where one can learn any of those skills you mentioned above within a short period of time.
Re: What Skills Should A Nigerian Acquire Before Traveling To Europe Or America by seunny4lif(m): 12:00am On Nov 17
Hand jobs like barber, Mechanic etc
Any health related skill
Any IT world related skill
