Checkout 10 Skills You Need to Find a Good Paying Job in Lagos and Any Other Place in the World

10 Skills You Need to Find a Good Paying Job
Lagos is reputed as the economic capital of Nigeria and West Africa as a whole. With a projected population of over 21 million residents, Lagos is arguably the most populated city in a black nation in the world.

Skills You Need to Find a Good Paying Job

The city attracts investments and productivity and with both follows highly skilled individuals which make the city even more competitive for job applicants and employed people alike.

The economy of Lagos is diverse so any skill you learn would come in handy. Virtually any skill you can think of is relevant in the city. From agricultural skills, to bead making to I.T skills to home management skills, they are all relevant. The question which you are probably asking now is, “Which skills do I need to find a good paying job in Lagos?” This question and more is what we would be addressing in this article. Ready? Of course you are. Let’s go.

These are the skills you would need to get that high paying job you have been hoping for in the city of Lagos

1. Sales

When you read this point you probably thought, “But I am not looking to land a sales job.” Sales jobs aren’t the only places you would have to use your sales skills. When being interviewed you would have to be able to sell yourself to the interviewer. It even starts with your CV.
You would have to be able to pitch your CV in a way that is attractive and can sustain the interest of the HR Manager to read your CV  to the end. It has often been stated that you have just 30 seconds to impress anyone reading your CV and if you lose that window of opportunity, the person loses interest even if you are the right candidate for the job. Package your CV like a product you have to market.

2. Networking

Networking is really important if you hope to find a high paying job in Lagos. The city is vast and you can’t be aware of all opportunities opening at every point in time but if you connect with persons who are upwardly mobile and establish cordial relationships with them, that’s your opening to be recommended for the high paying jobs in Lagos. So start connecting now. 

3. Research

Research! Research! Research! Go out of your comfort zone to look for job opportunities. In this age and time that’s digital you don’t even have to be physically present to be aware of job vacancies when you could search that out right form your smart phone. Follow up on friends you have been networking with on job offers. 

4. Presentation

You have one time to make a first impression so make the most of it. Wherever you find yourself whether at a gathering or in an interview present yourself well. Be articulate, smart and have make intelligent contributions while taking care not to be too intrusive. This definitely one skill you must hone in a city like Lagos if you need to fine high paying jobs or any job at that. 

5. Politeness

Nobody likes a rude person. You might have all the qualifications, work experience and professional skills in the world but if you are rude and arrogant, that would greatly reduce your chances of getting a job at any reputable firm, much less a high paying job. 

6. Quick replies to questions

Don’t waste time when answering questions. Don’t spend too much time trying to think up the perfect answer because time is of essence. When you delay replies to questions what that registers as to the interviewing panel is that you aren’t a smart thinker which would create the wrong impression.

You can slowly answer a question instead of spending time thinking up the perfect reply. Reply in measured doses. Impress upon the interviewers that you are smart and you understand the question. Make sure your replies are articulate enough. Enunciate your words properly while making sure the words you say aren’t misunderstood. 

7. Good interpersonal skill

Now this is very important. You should know how to relate with people. This would help you cultivate other skills such as networking, research, politeness, sales and even presentation. People should feel comfortable around you and find it easy relating with you. 

8. Multitasking ability

Being able to multitask gives you an advantage. A background in accounting, with public speaking skills, leadership skills, computer skills and the ability to fix network issues gives you an advantage if you seek a job in a bank.
A doctor who knows how to interpret medical laboratory equipments and can work with the equipments has an advantage to work as a medical supervisor in a hospital. 

9. Ability to master issues fast

If you have quick learning abilities, you would be able to acquire skills quick which would in turn boost your profile and can be added in your CV. This would speed up your career advancement rate. 

10. Ability to impress yourself positively upon people

You should be able to impress yourself lastingly upon people. The most impressionable candidate during an interview has the highest chance of being called back and qualifying to get a job placement in any firm.
There are several skills you need to get a high paying job in Lagos but the above-mentioned ones are top on the list. You should always have in mind that while the competition for any given job is high, with the right skills you would have an increased advantage over the other applying candidates.

Don’t give up on your dreams and if you keep at it sooner than later you would find a good paying job in Lagos. Good luck!!!

How Genuine And Who Is Behind N.I.P?

Now you may ask, is this not a scam site? NO. Not at all.
NNU Income Program (NIP) is a financial solution not a quick rich scheme and it’s a Double Your Hustle (DYH) idea created July, 2017 by a young Nigerian netpreneur Paul Samson under the auspices of G-Cyber Technologies. A professional web and ICT business registered under Corporate Affairs Commission (2453653).

Paul Samson is an internet marketer, affiliate marketer, freelancer and a Blogger who has achieved a lot and already made a good living using internet daily by God’s Grace. We have done it before and we are still doing it up till date. We started from Coolnaira .com a referral network with over 70,000 active members and has paid out over 15 million Naira within 1 year+ and still running smoothly. You may check the site for statistics.

So Why N.I.P?

Having running a successful network which a lot of Nigerians has benefited from, it seems like MLM referral network is not for everybody. We found out some Nigerians often lose interest in a program that requires members to refer before earning. But still, many people are looking for alternative options to earn money online to sustain daily need with less stress without having to refer anyone.
NNU has been running for a while using as a news aggregator. We look at where there is a financial problem and try to create a possible solution for the general public to live comfortably. This gave birth to N.I.P. (Option That Works)

How Will I Get Paid To My Bank Account And What Is The Minimum Payout?

Minimum payout is N5,000 naira threshold (Terms and Conditions Applies).

How to Start Blogging – Top 10 Niches to Focus on that Convert

How to Start Blogging - We’ve become so acquainted with blogging these days that the world now seem like a cliche to us but I bet you don’t know as much about blogging as you claim you know.

A blog is a website that updates news feeds frequently with the most recent feed appearing first as if in the case of writing a journal or a diary. Blogging is a very interesting business that requires time, effort and less money to start. One thing about starting up a blog page is that you must be prepared to update feeds frequently meaning you must be ready to be up and doing to load up-to-date feeds for the interested audience.

If you write journals then you will easily understand what I mean but you can’t start blog page when you have no idea on what to write or what your blog page will be about. Hence, here are the steps to start a blog page.

Blogging Guide - How to Start Blogging.

GET A BLOG TOPIC: for beginners, you don’t just jump into blogging because it’s fun but has a target. Get real; pick topics that are interesting and not something that bores you or the audience. 

Don’t just do it for the audience alone but for yourself. Make it something you enjoy. You don’t need a degree to start blogging neither do you need to be a pro all you need is passion and if you do biko carry go. Pick topics like;
  • Childhood
  • Love
  • Parenthood
  • Teenagers and puberty
  • Food
  • Drugs etc.
PICK A DOMAIN: You choose the domain you like since you won’t want to make the “I wish I knew” statement. You mustn’t go for domains that everyone is using, be peculiar. You could go for the .com, or .net. You could use your name as the brand name something like or as you wish. 

HOST YOUR BLOG: This is where users get to access and read your frequent updates and you begin getting the “on top of the world feelings (yeah, I know that feeling). That cannot be unless you get a domain and a company to host your weblog like the Blue host.
GET A BLOGGING PLATFORM: This is another task in you mustn’t fail. A blog platform is a software you could build your blog examples are;
  • Wordpress
  • Tumblr
  • Blogger
  • Ghost
  • Wix
  • Medium
  • Drupal etc.
These blogging platforms or soft wares will register, install and guide you on how to build your blog page meaning you are not without help in this deal.

Top 10 Blogging Niches that Convert on Google Adsense

Now you’ve known how to start a blog page the next thing is to identify niches that have traffic and where you could start making your earnings from. I’ll give you the top 10 niches you could use. First you need to know what a niche is.

NICHE is an area of interest where you can write and write and write without getting tired. Different people have different niche they specialize on that’s why I emphasized on passion and peculiarity. Just, be natural. Today, many bloggers have been able to identify their area of interest are many millions on the net you too can part of this community. Your success is mine too, so here are the 10 top niches you can’t do without on the net and that relates tremendously to our day to day lives.
  1. EDUCATION: An education blog can be anything from lesson plans home school parents and teachers can use, to current news about the state of education, to actual tutoring and even online courses. There are so many different sectors within education that you won’t be lacking for possible topics to cover. Your main problem will be narrowing your focus enough to create a strong target demographic among your readers.
  2. FOOD AND WINE: Ha-ha, you can agree with me that food constitutes about 90% of our daily life to this people will always be interested in blogs that talk about mouthwatering articles that make you salivate and have mid-day dreams as you read. Food niche rates about 21.76% these days.
  3. SPORT:  With the increasing number of crazy sport fans roaming the net in search of updates on their favorite sport team raising this niche to 21.71%, you could consider this your niche if you are also a sport fan. Going by the intrigue in sports these days plus the cute footballers in the teams that make our ladies go gaga even ladies now patronize sport (I didn’t say anything). So trust me, you could have millions of users if you tried.
  4. SPIRITUALITY: Aigoo, these days we get many many spirit koko people that are interested in spiritual things. Surprised? Everything in world has gone spiritual; men need not just physical counsel but spiritual counsel as well. You don’t need to be a Pastor or a Prayer warrior to write about spirituality if you find the topic interesting and inspiring you could write about it and try using you as a case study.
  5. MONEY: With our rotting economy, people will mostly be interested in blogs that will teach them how to make loads of cash. You might consider doing this.
  6. HEALTH: You can’t go anyway if you are not in good shape can you? Even if you do, there will always be this feeling of “not comfortable” but if you can offer solutions to illnesses then you bi hot cake believe me.
  7. RELATIONSHIP and MARRIAGE: Don’t start having evil thoughts, you don’t need to focus on adult content. All you need do is offer advice on how to build a good relationship for married couples, young couples and unmarried individuals in relationship. Talk about marriage, you don’t need to go all dirty if you want to get respected.
  8. LANGUAGES: For people who are intending to immigrate, they would want to learn important salutations and words of the country they’re immigrating into. Your write up may give very helpful information.
  9. TRAVEL/TOURISM: You may not have considered doing this but you would find this particular topic interesting as you also get to learn alongside your audiences about countries, their landmarks, tourist attractions and number of travellers and tourists flocking the country.
  10. FASHION: Today, fashion has gone broad that we have diverse fashion software scattered all over the net and great amount of users searching for info. If you are a fashion freak, you could also offer advice to your fellow fashion freaks out there. So, what do ya think? Wink.
  11. PARENTING: These days, people don’t know how to care for their children. Most parents are even too busy for their wards and kids you could offer advice on the emotional stress these kids may go through, the loneliness and hate and depression. Use you as a case study if you can.

Prices of Foreign Used Cars in Cotonou and Nigeria 2018 ▷ Latest Update

See the full information below; 

The list on this article provides the current 2018 average prices of foreign used cars bought directly from Cotonou or shipped from Europe and America. Cars imported into Nigeria are generally cleaner and more expensive as most times they have been used by only one person and on good roads.

Prices of Second Hand/Tokunbo/Belgium/Cotonou Cars in Nigeria

Note that prices of cars generally vary depending on the condition of the car: Its neatness, mileage, engine strength, year of manufacture and other factors, therefore in reality the sale price of a car might be slightly above or below the stated ranges but I have made sure that these price ranges are as accurate as possible.

The years stated in the post are the same model of a car e.g Toyota Corolla 2003 – 2005: 2003,2004 & 2005 models have the same shape but with minor differences.

PLEASE NOTE: The prices of foreign used/tokunbo cars have risen by almost double due to the increased customs tariff on imported vehicles and the high Naira to Dollar exchange rate. All prices are in Naira.
