BEST CAREER PLANING TIPS:

Time is a very important factor in our life and it should be valued,it is advised for you to take time and plan your future,you should be serious if you really want to excel,Fix a time when you will be able to concentrate only on it and nothing else should distract you. Make sure there is no disruption around when you sit for planning. Treat your career planning
schedule as you would treat a physician’s
appointment. It is not a one-time task and
must be taken up from time to time, in
order to review and revise the plan, if need
be. Take time and make the best plan for your career.

Information is the key,you simply need to make a thorough research on your choosing career,read more about,gather a lot of informations,ask questions,learn from experts in the field,and stay focused and updated.

    Hello NGShoolz, please I was among the candidates who participated in this year’s UTME and I scored 177. Please I want you to advise me on which course I should go for because I used Computer Engineering for University, and Mechanical Engineering for Polytechnic. I really love both courses but I’m confused about which one to go for, and for which institution(University or Polytechnic) I study the course based on the current situation of Nigeria and the world today. Thank You!!!

      They are both good courses, and as you did not meet the university cut off mark, kindly enroll in polytechnic with your score, you can still buy JAMB while in poly, or do direct entry after 2 years, i wish you Good Luck.
