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.

Do you live abroad?

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.


Pls is there any school in Lagos where one can learn any of those skills you mentioned above within a short period of time.

Those are super talents.... yes you could probably need a certificate if your profession is regulated but a professional body. What I mean is if you didn't get your certificate from an institution,its advisable you register with a professional body.



MisterKings:





You have answered the question and made my day, thank you bro.

But I am into video and film. I shoot videos like corporate events, weddings etc and I edit them, so you can call me a filmmaker of sorts. I am good at them and work for the makers of super story. And in addition I know web design and graphic design.

You no mention my category also do I need a certificate to show them I sabi am?

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)

Well UI/UX is about designing User Interface...

It's a fun thing to do...

If you have passion for filmmaking then pls learn skills relayed to that path...

Then about love making? Well just upgrade you skills cuz you might need it over there too

One thing about abroad is to have alot under your sleeves in case of emergency...

That's not the answer the OP needs.
It's your type that usually travels with "common sense" as their only skill and then engage in crimes abroad, thinking they're smart, and soiling the country's image.
What's the "smartness" in robbing and scamming/duping people?
If you don't have any skills, please, do not dream of travelling, because the Nigeria has already had enough bad image from idiots like you.

Thank God many more people are now recognizing that skill acquisition is a necessity for travelling.

Bro my question for you is simple, "what is common sense?"
Now after answering that question, answer this; can common sense guide you in skill acquisition?

At the end of the day, after everyone has advised the op to do this and that, what if he is not able to compete with that skill due to certain individual reasons unique to the op?

Just imagine people telling him to learn IT skills... what if he goes to Norway for instance and is required to take a mandatory certification exam in order for him to function... that becomes a tall order if he didn't get the supporting education for that skill. (Let's even leave the language part out of it-assuming the op is good with languages)

My point exactly, acquire a skill you can actually get competitive with, not because of popular remarks. There's a market out there which varies depending on the country you go.

Right there... thats common sense.

Oh and by the way, it's my type that identifies a market demand in my location, and figures out a way within my capacity to buildup supply. Common sense let's you do that. And that's a strategic skill.

Can anyone guide me through which IT skill one should aquire?

Since web development is already a saturated industry what chance does one have as a web developer?


Will one need to acquire more skills, if yes which one?
