Fashion / How Much Do You Spend On Clothing Monthly? by Beckybeky(f): 9:38am On Apr 18, 2016
Clothing is a basic need, so it makes sense to equate it with feeding and shelter.
In fact, some people spend more money on fashion than they do on feeding and shelter. These are the trendy and fashionable peeps especially we ladies.

One thing I believe in though is in always going for quality. I see a lot of people buy things just cos they are cheap.
When u buy quality stuff, it saves u money in the long run cos u wont need to constantly replace. Unlike when u buy cheap substandard things like shoes and within one month, they are worn out.
Another thing I do is that I go shopping once in a while, and I buy a lot of clothing once.

Having said all that, I want to hear from Nairalanders. How much do you spend on clothing in a typical month?

Career / Re: Should I Resign My New Job For A Contract Job? by Beckybeky(f): 7:23am On Apr 12, 2016
Hi Becky.beky

This isn't just any contract job; it is a contract job with Shell. If I were in your shoes, I'd take it, even if it's just for four years. Some contract jobs do not even last more than a year and a year isn't enough time to grow in a particular field. But here you have four years! Enough time to grow and improve yourself, and with the great pay, get additional skills. So I'm not quite sure why you're finding it difficult to choose. A job that offers career progression is great, but to excel in any kind of job, you have to know to play your part.

With the other job, you will be promoted and grow and all that.

But with this Shell opportunity, two things will happen:

1. You get retained if you've contributed greatly to the company. (And there's a chance this happens if you will play your part right.)

2. The contract ends, you have a beautiful CV with Shell stamped on it, four years worth of experience, and remarkable additional skills - things that will definitely open doors to blue chip companies.

So it's not a factor of 'which job will promote me', but a factor of how hard you're willing to work and take advantage of whatever opportunity that comes your way.

Good luck with whatever choice you make. smiley

Thank u very much.

From my humble perspective, 4 years in Shell even with 100k not to even talk of 200+ is worth it. The brand SHELL will open a lot of doors for you after the 4 years.

Thank u very much for your advice.

Career / Should I Resign My New Job For A Contract Job? by Beckybeky(f): 9:27pm On Apr 11, 2016
Please I need mature advice if possible from professionals and career persons.

Since late last year, I have been pursuing this job stuff from Shell which someone close to me who works there referred me to.
It is a contract job which will last for about 4 years. It was supposed to start late last year but due to the delay in change of govt, it couldn't.

Last month, I got another new job. The pay is a little below 100k and there is career progression and assured promotions in this new job.

Now my referrer in the Shell job has told me get ready to start on the contract job by next month. This one pays above 200k but its just for 4 years period.
So am confused and don't know what to do right now.
Am thinking that this Shell job might connect me to a permanent and bigger position if I go for it.

Romance / Guys: What Can Cause You To Cry? by Beckybeky(f): 12:02pm On Jul 20, 2015
I've often heard guys say that nothing can make them cry. But I've seen guys cry before, for love, for death of a loved one, sickness or a misfortune.

To the guys in d house, have you ever cried before and what made you cry?
Or what is that thing you can cry for?

do not waste your moments. It is a marketing job without basic pay rather it's on commission.
kindly paste the company's address to confirm if it was the same office I went to last week Tuesday

Jobs/Vacancies / Re: Don't Be Brash And Over-confident: Lesson For Job Seekers by Beckybeky(f): 10:34am On Jul 18, 2015
I don't get the message this story is trying to pass. The engineer who couldn't drive lied and you should never encourage lying in an interview.
What happens if the Head of HR or any of his bosses asks him to drive a car for real the next day after his employment. Will his lie not become exposed
Exactly Wat I Was Thinking. Or If They Had Let Him To Drive D Car That Day And He Bashes It?

Jobs/Vacancies / Re: Have You Been Attending Interviews Without Success? Come In Let's Discuss!! by Beckybeky(f): 8:27pm On Jul 01, 2015
Thanks to God, I've never been rejected on the two opportunities have had so far.
1st one was a recommendation & I scale tru but the man wan dey use me like pure water in the name of helping me....... I quit after 4months oo after 10k/month that doesn't take me to work for the month
2nd was a vacancy through a friend's link & I was called after interview to resume work. I'm still with them while hoping to develop with them while waiting for a bigger opportunity.

No regret mail so far & I'm not hoping to get one

Good for you.
Some get it easily while others struggle for it, that's life for you! But don't fail to lift others if you have the opportunity to do so, if not you're going back to square 1.
