Lessons You Must Consider While Choosing a Career in Nigeria

Some of the biggest lessons I have learned from my career so far:

1) Let your work build on itself - If you show capacity in one role, people will recommend you quicker for other opportunities.


2) Modesty kills your work - When you are nominated for roles that you know you are CAPABLE of, accept. Don't demur or foist it on someone else because you are modest or shy. There is a place for modesty/humility but it is not the workplace. You were nominated for a reason, validate that reason.


3) Understand yourself - For instance, I like to work behind the scenes, spotlights make me nervous. Other people like the spotlight and thrive better when attention is on them. Understanding where you fall will help you. Know your strengths and weaknesses so that you know what you need to compensate for and what you can leverage on.


4) People relations -This is important when you're building your career. No matter the kind of work you have, how you relate with people is important. People want to work with people they like, not jerks. The little gestures are important, make them. But, be aware that not everyone will like you. Be your authentic self while being careful in how you handle others.

5) Seek to Grow - Look for ways to grow and learn in every role. Be willing to learn. If that position or role isn't helping you grow in some way, don't stay there for too long.
