List of cool  jobs in Nigeria that do not require a university certificate



 
Image result for job opportunity
We can all agree that education is important but 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.
 
There are still several occupations in the job market that provide a great income, a positive work-life balance and a high level of satisfaction that also don’t require you to follow the typical road towards a four-year degree
 
However, for a good number of these jobs, you will have to register and get certifications from several certified training and courses aligned with your career.
 
We have compiled a list of 9 amazing career opportunities that don’t require a university degree. Before we hoist ourselves into the career opportunities, let us remind ourselves that finding a job in this digital age is a different process than it was twenty years ago.
 
While not all great jobs require a degree, it can be difficult to know where to look for a rewarding job with minimal education requirements. In this article, we will discuss 9 jobs that you can pursue without a degree.

A polished portfolio, which is often a requirement for training on photography is another benefit of taking such courses.

Many Nigerians are known to fluently speak and write in second languages apart from English.
 
Some of the more popular languages are; Chinese, French, German, Japanese and Portuguese. Companies are in favour of applicants who know one or two of these languages.

To hit the salary cap of N10 million annually, the digital marketer would have to be employed in a managerial capacity. We have several cases of this in Nigeria, especially within well-structured organisations.
 
Those interested in digital marketing can find jobs as internet marketing specialists or online marketing managers.

9. POLICE CADET INSPECTOR
Maximum annual salary: N1 million
 
In Nigeria, you do not need a bachelor’s degree to get an Inspector badge. However, you will need to get training from a police training academy and work your way up the ranks before you eventually begin to reap the benefits of this position.
 
In addition to attending a police training academy, candidates must also pass background checks, psychological tests and physical fitness tests.
 
After a probationary period that can last up to three years, police officers become eligible for a promotion to detective.
 
Detectives are known to carry out investigations by gathering evidence, interviewing suspects, examining facts and conducting surveillance. Police detectives typically work in a specific department such as guns and gangs, narcotics, homicide or organised crime.
 
The remuneration package for the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) is not great but it offers a high degree of job security.
