A Nigerian man living in the United Kingdom and working in Kazakhstan has disclosed how joining the British Army made life easier for him.
Speaking with Legit TV, Ifeanyi Anyaugo said he joined the British Army after graduating from the Federal University of Technology, Owerri (FUTO).
He spent five years in the army and now works as a consultant. The Nigerian man said joining the army changed his mindset and his career opened doors of opportunities for him.
According to Ifeanyi, ex-servicemen have upper hands than those with higher qualifications when they apply for jobs because of the character development course they took while in the army.
The Nigerian man said people with higher academic qualifications and no work experience are not valuable in the labour market abroad.
He said before going for masters, it is important to have experience, adding that this will help people in their chosen career.
