You can travel through Qatar airways. Qatar is NOT UAE, and UAE already reversed the ban this morning.

Be like Nigeria is getting these countries by their balls now

Does this by anywhere means that one cannot use Qatar Airways to travel to the UK.

Abeg make I understand

Is there anything about the notification? Or it’s the regular job alerts one receives in our email inbox from LinkedIn?

I changed my location to London , England for a week and I received at least one message per day from recruiters

Weird cos Nigerian recruiters barely ever send DMs LOL

Apart from changing your location. You need to customize your job search.

For instance I am into Journalism and Public Relations.So if I am looking for jobs. I will customize it to entry and graduate jobs in my field. Secondly I will mention positions that relates to my field like communications, coordinator, writer, media content (if I want to be specific I will write tv content, radio content, news content).

Linkedin will start sending jobs not just in my location but the kind of jobs I want and the level.

Sometimes LinkedIn matches you with senior roles in your field that's if your LinkedIn profile is good.

Before I left Nigeria so Nigerian companies invited me for roles in my field but I could not respond since I don't have plans staying back.

Hello everyone, i need a better advise and judgement. I will be coming to the UK in 2022 for my masters, the enrolment will soon start. I studied Agric. in my Bsc but have been working in IT related fields since i graduated. I will be piking one of the below three courses:

DATA SCIENCE
CYBER SECURITY
CLOUD COMPUTING

I have passion and love the 3 but i only have to pick one and i want to do it based on availability of employment in the UK after graduation. If you are in my shoes, which course would you advise and reason why

Thanks

You don't need to pay premium once you activate your LinkedIn notification.

Jobs will just start pouring into your notifications. You might get confused and tired because everyday there are companies posting jobs even on a Sunday. I saw my job on a Sunday morning. Some will review your cv on LinkedIn download it and contact you. Some will send you a DM on LinkedIn.


[b]Most people are not persistent when it comes to job search in their field as long someone says there is no opportunity in that your field they have lost it. They won't bother searching again. They want to start a new degree which doesn't have to be the case. [[/b]/quote]


So true. Everybody wants to be a nurse now. I don't blame though, citizenship is the end game

You can't go wrong with either data science or cloud computing.

Hello All,

Is it a must I arrive in the UK on the date I specified during my app?

Can i go earlier, maybe 2 days before or 4 days after?

Checked ticket prices and it seems cheaper some days before and after

Kindly clarify

Thanks!

It's not a must as long as your visa vignette is valid on your intended date of travel

I’d choose Cybersecurity

Cloud computing can be found in cybersecurity so it means best of both worlds. Cloud security is basically a combination of both cloud computing and cybersecurity wink

All 3 are good fields though but data science is good for those who can code or who know some mathematics

You cannot get in before your visa active date but you can go after within the 3 months specified on your visa vignette.

I hope this helps.

Please @justwise @luchibianca @akporokodaughter and any other gurus in the house i have uploaded my my bank statement last week, but this morning I decided to check again when it was sent to a friend. I requested for a period between 9/11/21 - 8/12/21 which is 30 days on Dec 9,2021. The opening balance date which suppose to be Nov 9 was not reflected, then the transaction on the bank statement started from Nov 10 to Dec 7. Please do the visa officer check the period I requested for printing between Nov 9 - Dec 8 or they check only the transaction dates between Nov 10 - Dec 7. Thank you

This is a student visa thread question
Re: Living In The Uk-life Of An Immigrant (part 2) by Mamatukwas: 4:32pm On Dec 14, 2021
So imma share my recent experience on traveling with Infants with expired passports incase it helps someone.

1. Your infant or child or you self can travel to Nigeria with an expired passport if they have additional citizenship from USA, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand or Australia. It’s on the Heathrow travel guide for Nigeria so please print and take to the airport with you incase the person checking you in is unaware.

2. Upon arrival, only 1 immigration officer asked why our kids had expired passports and we said we couldn’t renew it due to Covid restrictions and it’s associated issues. We weren’t asked to do Visa on arrival or ETC or any such thing.

So if you find yourself in a similar situation, fear not. No need for ETC or hustling to do passport in the UK especially if it’s inconvenient. You will be allowed to board.
