Tensazangetsu20 I must acknowledge that you were a massive contribution to my 2021 on the Programming section of NL

Qtguru I must also acknowledge you as a major motivator to give back to youngsters coming through in tech. Hopefully we can take the Slack group to the next level this year.

I'm honoured by remi1444 and Sososo to be on your list. It's a pleasure to be mentioned by you both.

2021 started out as a horrible year. Lost my job just before Christmas 2020 and was out of job for 8 months. But recovery in August 2020 was so great that what I earn in 1 month is now equal to what I earned in 10months at my previous job. Patience is indeed a virtue. Patience, Persistence and Preparation
thank you

Perhaps, this weekend. I'll create time for it. I have now received more emails. I hope it'll be worthwhile and save a lot of aspiring devs valuable time.

come take me out n prove it
there are but fewer compared to their male counterparts.
Programming / Re: Women And Mums Interested In Programming by Sososo(f): 4:47pm On Oct 11, 2021

I would love to meet more females as myself though I don't really emphasize on gender since people that inspired me to go into programming are all males.
By the way I think there are very few female programmers on Nairaland (that's an assumption though)
generally there are few female programmers compared to males cause programming is presented as a "no go area" for females but
gradually females are turning up.
we are like a female to five males where im training.

I receive at least one email per week with the same question. I hope to create a thread soon where I'll share my own journey and practical tips to transition from a learner to landing the first remote job. I can't address it here cos it'll be too long. The problem is alot of people are learning which is good but they're doing so in a way that makes them unattractive to employers especially foreign companies.

Not to brag but I got my first remote role just 4 months after I started learning. I ascribe that to favour and the fact that I had a clear path to follow which others too have followed and achieved the same result. There is no secret here whatsoever, everything is available in public space for free. Of course, individual realities will differ.

im also interested

I've engaged with some developers on nairaland about this topic and out of frustration, I just surrendered.

Since the pandemic and the popularization of remote work, it's no longer news that western tech companies now look to source talents from Africa and Some parts of Asia. The rationale is to cut cost.

A recruiter that recruits for some of these tech companies recently told me that they no longer disclose potential salary budget to candidates from Africa, especially Nigeria.

She mentioned that they are always shocked at the salary expectations of candidates. She went further to state that 9 out of 10 candidates from Africa request for between 20% to 80% below the budget of the companies( Even though the company is already saving a lot by recruiting from Africa). And the fact that she mentioned Nigeria specifically got me a little angry.

Why tf will you guys be asking for $500/month for a software development role no matter whether its entry level or not? What values do you place on yourself? Just because you live in Nigeria? A cleaner does not even get paid $500/month in those companies. Do you feel good knowing the colleague you'll be working with is earning ×5 of what you're being paid and you're probably even adding more value. Don't you get angry?

The painful part is that some of these companies didnt even offer to pay you these miserable salaries, you requested it yourself.

Sometime ago, on another thread here on NL, on the same topic of remote job compensation, some folks came to the thread with alot of justification why $500/month is a good offer. They cited exchange rate, poverty rate in Nigeria, how there's no job and every other pathetic reasons why they should slave away to a western company. I can't even begin to reason the ones that are hawking their "skills" here on NL offering to build a full fledged e-commerce site with integrated payment solutions for 10k naira.

I don't care what you say, if you know your shit and have good self esteem, you can earn as much as $4k/month. Before you come here and start reciting all the impossibilites in your books, know that I'm writing from a position of knowledge. I have statistics and real life examples to substantiate this figure. I myself have been working remotely even before the pandemic.

I wouldn't have bothered to even write, but this development is now coming back to bite some of us just because we answer the name Nigerian.

Wonderful guys who know their trade well.

Jobs/Vacancies / Re: Opeyemi Awoyemi: When Developers Get Jobs Abroad, Better Founders Emerge by Sososo(f): 11:58am On Sep 28, 2021
Tech is the new oil.

Someone just made millions of dollars couple of minutes ago online, all while sitting in his room.

When I see many Nigeria youths who claim to be jobless but these same youths sub data and waste all data and their lives every moment going from one celeb page to another on SM commenting on wetin no concern them. Fighting on BBN, Pessi and Penaldo etc. Wasting away everyday.

Is it not young people like you sponsoring BBN this year? Does Ronaldo even have time arguing about himself? He's always busy in gym building himself to earn more.

But Nigerians youths roam internet aimlessly everyday, wasting away but later they'll blame village people.

Many people poverty na follow come and follow go. It's a choice.
funny but true
