My Christmas wish is for a new job by January 1, 2014. After graduation from the university and haven completed the National Youth Service in 2009, I hoped to secure a job in a blue-chip company just like every other aspiring graduates, but it was not forth coming. So, because I hate being idle I was prepared to accept any available job offer that came my way in other to pay my bills and not be dependent.
Being focused on what I want, from my little earning, I saved up, rather than spend it on clothes, its accessories and other frivolities to impress people, to acquire additional skills to enhance my employability. I raised a reasonable amount, over a hundred thousand to acquire skills in Network Management, Transmission Engineering, RF Engineering, and GSM Engineering.
After the training, I hoped that soonest the opportunities will come calling since I am now equipped with a skill, yet to no avail. At a point I did not mind an internship opportunity to put to practice what I have learnt even if I will not be paid a stipend or anything all, but just an opportunity practice and get better, yet none. It just appears as if my effort has been a futile fight of fancy.
I have been working in same place for four years now, with no career growth, promotion or any serious career advancement. Right now I am becoming a bit redundant because of no meaningful challenge; in fact I think my English is even becoming terrible by the day.
I have interest in telecommunication, oil and gas, aviation and any industry where technical expertise is required, because I enjoy solving technical related problems.
Oh! Santa, please hear my cry and grant my wish
