Paying Nigerian jobs: We can all agree that education is important. However, taking the traditional education route of attending a four-year university after secondary school can take a long time and is usually fairly pricey. For some, the traditional schooling system is not their forte and the idea of racking up debt in the form of loans is not enticing. If attending college isn’t in your plans, you should consider getting a degree via distance learning programmes or get an online degree in any course. In Nigeria, while you might not need a degree to get a job, you would eventually need it for career progression.
