“Good morning boss, just to inform you I got a job as an IT consultant at a tax firm in Lagos
I would like to inform you with great pleasure that I started work last week with a Tax consultancy firm in Lagos as an IT consultant. It has been a long road but I am glad I went through the flames to come out refined.
I still remember stumbling on an article about Careerinsights sometime in April 2016, after trying to get a job since December 2015 having completed my Masters in the UK. With all my attempts in getting a job coming to naught, I said to myself why not give them (Careerinsights) a try. So I called the Lagos office spoke with Blessing and came onboard on May 2016.
Getting on the platform I joined various projects CI-Empire, Bot-FAQ, Eagle Eye etc started with taking minutes, writing reports and volunteering for other tasks but I still didn’t know what was going on even after being consistent on meetings, why one may ask? Well I was at far away Calabar and had no one to give me some sort of support or had no form of onboarding session, something those joining today enjoy. Then the screen of my Macbook got bad and that of my phone as well, I was like of all the times in the world to experience this. Any way before long my subscription ran out and I was not yet done with watching the PM or BA videos. I subscribed again for another 3 months, got a laptop from a friend and kept attending meetings.
Then on a certain weekend, sometime late 2016, just before the digital transformation wind started blowing on the platform, Keji held a competition and was giving out 1 year subscription to winners. I told God if this platform would lead me to something fruitful let me win and win I did. Then another lull in activities, caused by incessant problems with the transformer. around where I stay (which at times lasted for weeks) and cost of data subscription.
Got to Mentoring and still was not versed with certain things on the platform I held off applying to any job till I was sure of what I was doing. Light came when Keji held refresher sessions sometime in August last year and I joined the data analysis specialist training by Vyas and Oyinua. I selected George as a mentor and then started applying for work. For months no calls only visits to my LinkedIn profile yet no call for interview. Then this year I rewrote my CV and started sending it out. Got a couple of calls and then had my first Interview last month, where I spoke about how digital transformation was helping position DBT as a major disruptor in the tech industry.
My advice to everyone is no matter what challenges you may be facing here, you are at the right place so just keep at it you will get your success story at the end. I would like to thank you, Keji for this platform and every other member of the DBT management team, Ade Folarin for always checking in on me, George Odigie, my Mentor for his encouraging words during our mentoring sessions. If there be anyone I have left out please take no offence as I thank you all as well. I would like to thank God most especially for giving me the grace to stick to the platform till I got my success story. Funny thing my rent expired this month just as I got a job. Is God not wonderful?
PS: I will still be on the platform not going anywhere”
