Lagos is the worst place to be as a job hunter without a place to stay or small stipend for feeding. If you have someone that can accommodate and feed you free of charge for like a month while you hit the streets HARD to find work then come. If not try to secure something here from where you are first or find opportunities elsewhere. If not you go sleep under bridge an beg for food/transport money tire. I do not think that's good for your dignity or safety for that matter

Your village is better than Lagos because you don't get to pay for exorbitant electricity bills,dustbin bill,high cost of rent, pickpockets, poorly paid job, traffic congestion,etc.
The grass is greener whichever side you water it.

Am a graduate (awaiting though) and a NCE holder. I am planning to come to lagos to chase my dreams/passion. I am aware of the ups and downs in Lagos ranging from traffic to cost of living but my dreams are worth chasing. So my issue here is I want to secure a job before coming so that I would be able to sustain myself while I chase my dreams.

I have a place to stay (Festac, Ajegunle). I have benefited from this forum from different people who I barely knew. That's why I decided to bring this here even though I know there are vultures out there but God’s got our back.

If you can help in anyway, please reach out. Help me get my connect abeg.
u are going there to add to the already over populated city

Lagos hard. Lagos tough die! No be beans bro! I was born and bred here in Lagos. I'm a graduate with a good result and some experience in Procurement and sales. I still don't have a job atm. I've attended over 100 interviews here in Lagos. Though destiny differs. Yours might be different.

All the best

@op ill advise you to move to Lagos. Forget all those doom talkers here. See let me tell u mine. I presently reside in Portharcourt, but you won't believe that between January this year to now I have done over 20 interviews and gotten over 7 juicy job offers already and Guess what, all this were from companies in Lagos!!! I mean not a single Interview or offer from this shithole called Portharcourt. The problem I have is that I live in a very comfortable house here in portharcourt and I have nobody in Lagos. I do feel so so sad sometimes. I had no choice than to accept the last job offer that came luckily they haven't set up their office yet in Victoria Island(I'm on salary). So I'm using the time now to save so I can get a place in Lagos to stay even if it's one room. Please move!!!

Don't mind those people. It's like how our uncles tell us there's nothing oversea. That Nigeria is better.

One thing Lagosians don't understand is that they're naturally ahead of many Nigerians. If you have an in demand skill, Lagos is the best place to be.

@OP
Worst that can happen is that you fail and you go back. But don't quit before trying.

If truly you've attended over 100 interviews and currently don't have a job then you might be too selective.

In some states, it's so bad that there are no interviews to attend. It's just that bad.

Well changing locations can be exciting and also open new opportunities!
Howbeit
Online Remote jobs anywhere anytime is better
You can get to earn as much as $30000(thirty thousand ) monthly or yearly depends on time spent and jobs completed because of your location doing transcribing or voice over. It's a lil harder from Africa especially Nigeria because of Online scams associated to such regions though some of us still find our way around the challenges!

@seniorwriter

I transcribe and do voice over well. I even do jingles. Any assistance with the online remote jobs? Pls

Bro.... never ever say you're a graduate.... and worse... in English. It is better you wrote in Pidgin than torture us with this your graduate english. Even if I was in a position to connect you... I would not... because of your English..... and the low reasoning level you're showing chatting with Joysticks. If you can't start chasing your dream where you live.... don't risk trying in Lagos.


This is a social platform bro. we type anyhow atimes to minimize time

I've reach certain level of enlightenment and all I desired now is to find fulfillment in what I want to do.
low reasoning you called it… can you explain?
Re: Coming To Lagos For Opportunities! by semasir: 10:57am On Apr 20
Lagos can indeed make or mar you. There are opportunities for sure but the stuff you are made of and the divine grace you possess can take you farther.

If I have my way, I won't advise you chase any dream in Lagos due to the stress involved except you don't mind or even get luckier by getting yourself a job closer to where you'd live.

I have no where I might just think of running back to because I'm a Lagosian and married else I'd have done so! I've lived in Port Harcourt more and I still prefer it to Lagos (finance wise, they're almost equal but Lagos has the edge because of the cash flow) and also Abuja is fine too!

I dunno what dream you are dreaming of but be mindful that you can be anywhere and successful all the same though some environment speeds up the process.

All the best for you

You're very correct my brother. You should know by now that Nigerians are extremely very negative people!!!

Lagos is worth giving a try, after all those that couldn't cope either left or joined whining bandwagon.
There's a marketing job in real estate for grabs. I think the pay is 30k monthly but with commissions when u make a sale.

I can tell u off hand that if u don't get a sale over a period of time, u will stop being paid.
But with hindsight, it can help u connect and get better opportunities.

If u are interested, please kindly chat me.

I wish you all the best

Nairalanders are good comrades they will surely help you but hope you are not one of those that will run away from their villages get accommodated by people in SW and the North then find their feets, buy land, build house in SW or North then started calling them cowards, dirty, stupid, lazy, tufiakwa shit etc ba

Pls don't join those hitler descendants ingrate bollocks. My advise.

Those people I'm talking about are my people ok so don't think I'm doing tribal stunt at all. They hate me for bluntly refusing to inherit their hate gene and I give no shit.

Once more my advice. Good luck and Jah bless.
Nah bro, I just want to chase my dreams that's al

Re: Coming To Lagos For Opportunities! by semasir: 11:00am On Apr 20
100 jobs and still unemployed? Don't you think you need to restrategize? I was once out of job for a month and got 2 offers and had to settle for one over the other even the longer one I was out of job for 5 months, I was engaged doing something online.

Please think it through your plans on this interviews.
