The exact job search strategy and secret hacks that helped me land a 6-figure remote job
If you’re reading this letter right now, you’re in luck because you’re about to learn something that will change your life for good. I know that’s a big claim but stay with me till the end and you’ll find the change you’ve been looking for all these years.
Naturally, getting this job should have made me very happy. It did initially. But several months into the job, I came to hate it. I discovered it was extremely strenuous and tasking for me.
I spent long hours on-site; sometimes climbing communication masts and sleeping overnight wearily in computer rooms where mosquitoes would feast on me mercilessly. Poor me, they didn’t care if I had enough blood left in me or not.
If the salary was that modest, I’d have been more patient. Unfortunately, like most Nigerian jobs, my pay wasn’t commensurate with my efforts. I couldn’t even save enough money to enjoy some basic necessities of life. I worked every single day including weekends and public holidays. No over-time, no private time, I was on the move 24/7. I put my life at risk.
After working for so long, I couldn‘t even get a salary increase and my short occasional vacation was often truncated by emergency calls. For several years, I still continued this routine until I realized I had been working too hard.
