The inability of her family to assist her financially pushed the young girl to look for ways to survive despite being a student at that time. Linda Ikeji did ushering jobs at public events but she stopped after a while.

Linda then went into modeling since she wasn't getting much success from the ushering jobs. Again, Linda's modeling career went off and she focused on how to own a modeling agency of her own with the name Black Dove Communications.

Young Linda Ikeji later worked as a bartender where she sold beers to make a living. She would stand from 2 pm to 10 pm at the Sheraton Hotel to get paid from the commission gotten from the beer sales.
