For those not in Nigeria: how to get a job in Nigeria

Jobberman’s latest video is clearly targeted at Nigerians who studied abroad and are considering coming back to their homeland to work. Not long into the 7 minute explainer, the presenter complete with “janded” accent is clearly nudging repats to look for jobs in Nigeria’s ICT sector, which he described to be booming. And not just the big brands in technology, he says, but particularly smaller internet startups like Konga, Jumia, DealDey, Jobberman and Cheki, because unlike their bureaucratic seniors with ossified corporate ladders, startups are “more involving” for new entrants. One guessing he means more say and perhaps even a stake (equity).

Well played, JM, well played.

    Well played by Jobberman. Great for folks that are fresh out of school and considering taking the leap. However if you are comfortable in a career, it’s much more difficult as many companies may be unable to afford to match your current salary or worse still not have a need for the skill sets you acquired over the years. As he rightly pointed out, chances of one making the transition depends on the industry. O&G, Telcom, Banking, Construction (to an extent), and well funded startups anything else is “connections” and luck.

    Interesting video, I’m curious to know how indigenous Nigerians who are currently looking for work feel about this video
