I prayed to God for Knowledge
He gave me wisdom
Ever since she came into my life all i see is opportunity
She guides me daily and teaches me the right step to take,
How can I take her for granted.

Thank you wisdom for flowing through my veins....
At a very young age hmm let's say 12 or so
All I asked God was knowledge
I never asked for anything
Back in the days even as teenagers
My friends would call me conglomerate
I use to take it as joke ooo
In short, I never took it as anything
As I grew older I started seeing my myself as an entrepreneur
I worked ooo
Haa I worked. But it was one place I never wanted to be
As an entrepreneur, I knew I needed those lessons
So I got my first Job in a Health insurance company
I was so excited, it was the best and first health insurance at the time
I learnt virtually everything, I couldn't sit at my space
I learnt structure, from HR to Accounting, to Investment etc
Time went by, I had spent 2yrs, wow
I have to move on I said to myself
Immediately I starting seeking other opportunities
In like minded sector
Hurray!!! I got another job
The pay was better, 3 times my initial pay
The job was less I felt cool
But later I felt
I felt I was doing less, I needed to do more
And started seeking greener pastures abroad
I wanted to have a feel of working globally.
So I journeyed to an Asian country
Beautiful place.
I had applied for a job with an Outsourcing company
Back home in Nigeria, so when I got
To the country, my first move was to visit them live
They saw me and embrace me, I told them I was hoping to get a placement
The boss looked at me, and asked would you like to be a recruitment consultant?
I was in shocked, I had no idea what to say.
I said YES!!
Immediately he told me you can start. I was happy
See ehn as a Nigerian it meant alot to me.
Do you know my Job description?
Oya Guess. I was made senior recruitment officer
My verticals were Senior healthcare consultants
Ok back to my nigeria stuff
I was the first Nigerian to be employed in that organisation
And I was a senior recruitment officer, it meant alot to me
Well I worked hard and I gave my people jobs in that country
People appreciated me, and I thank God for the opportunity to serve
Now it was 5yrs of working experience
I needed something New, I was tired of leaving abroad.
So I journeyed back home....
I have to go now.
Watch this space for PART 2
