‘MCSE Holders Earn $70,000 - $100,000 World Wide’ How Much Do They Earn In Nigeria
I was meant to understand Microsoft Certified System Administrators/Engineers are not meant to accept a job which is network related that pays less than $70,000. This I guess shows the very extreme importance and benefit of obtaining the certificate.
But the issue for us in Nigeria is ‘How many companies can afford to pay an MCSE holder that kind of Amount’ not even considering the fact that Most Nigerian Based Companies, Enterprises and Business Ventures don’t know the true value of a Microsoft Certified Person ‘even the so called giant companies like MTN’. They seem to equate us to computer technicians who don’t know more than to install OS & Hardware.
What a shame and when we the youths who are suppose to develop the nation technically decide to go abroad, they say we are not Patriots. How many realizable ICT institute has been established? How many programs have been organized to develop the young minds ICT wise? Let us tell ourselves the truth here. ‘if our country is not ready to take note of us professionals by giving us the right intensives to join hands to make this nation a true giant of Africa, then don’t feel Guilty by heeding to an Invitation by other countries who offer to pay you appropriately according to your worth’.
Do u know a lot of countries ‘and I don’t mean 3rd world countries’ are willing to pay for your Visa, travel expenses and other things just by posting your resume ‘MCSE’ on the net.? Try it.
