Was jobless for over a year during my teenage years, not working, not learning any craft, not in school.

During that time, I was always in my room, brushing up my skills in a particular field alone on my PC and smartphone. That skill pays the bills today.

I was seen as lazy then, little did they know I was cooking something delicious for myself.

No regrets over my jobless years.



In other news, Nigeria has a bright future ahead. I had a dream about it.
What skills

Well, I resigned from a banking job around March cos I was tired of the kind of job I was doing, no joy not happiness whatsoever. This is my 4month of not having a full time job. Funny thing is, I work remotely for two brands, one in Nigeria and one abroad but the pay is just there to keep me going to find something better. So yeah, I thank God for what I have and at least can still seed something to my younger sibling in school.

Truth is I'm currently in my lowest right now, just striving to stay happy and not feel sad. Don't know why though sad

People are looking for banking job you want to resign, A.C 247

Just 3 weeks after my NYSC. 11 years and counting I have not ever been out of job to the extent am even scared cos I don't know how it feels and pray never to have such feeling. If I will ever be out of job I will be self-employed by his grace.
Wow thank God sir you are really lucky blood of Zachariah

10 months and I have a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Europe. I relocated to Nigeria last year due to a family member’s health issue and was told that the industry doesn’t exist here for my skills and that I needed to know people in high places to get a job.
Do you mean with PhD in engineering you don't have a job? I"m very sure you are joking sir,

I have never been unemployed before.. Started working before my final year project defence. I worked in Lagos and served in Abeokuta simultaneously.
Left the job after two years... I got employed by a Nigerian company operated from the UK remotely. Started another job here again later on, remotely... I will be starting another remote job by September, this one is based in San Francisco, CA USA. Making it three jobs simultaneously... With loads of contract jobs with some companies here in Nigeria.

God has been Good to me when it comes to jobs and contracts. I don't stress myself, I can say I have more than 95% success rate, when it comes to interview.

My only problem is that, it's taking over my life and I am beginning to get tired of all of them.

I won't lie I am not enjoying my life anymore... But again, poverty is not palatable even in its simplest form.

All I am looking for now, is too land a job with any of the fortune 500 and I hope God will do that soonest... I will just drop all of these ones... Start-ups jobs are too overwhelming.
Are you good at computer skills

Boss, Is it using the Django Rest Framework?
I am a junior Django Devloper(currently learning react), I just need a few jobs(unpaid or paid) to keep sharpening my Django skills.

I have knowledge of HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, JavaScript, jQuery (Ajax) and Django.

Can also use Version Control System like Git.
Deployed one blog app to PythonAnywhere.

I just need some projects to test my skills on an enterprise scale, and working with companies.

It doesn't matter if it is unpaid. Just need the experience.

3 months after submitting my Final year project.

Spent the next 3 months in a hotel, from there to a commercial bank where I worked before NYSC. Then served with a multinational where I got retained. The rest is history. By God's grace, I'll be employing people soon.

Boss man!

Employ me na.

I don't mean to question your decision but I don't think it was a good decision for you to to abandon a sane society, ease of getting good jobs, stable electricity and most especially a secured future for your unborn kids to return back home because of a family member's health issue. I wouldn't want my own child to sacrifice his future happiness because of me. My two cent.
