From Nigeria to Canada: My Journey of Hope, Resilience, and Success

Canada, 9th Oct 2023, King NewsWire I left Nigeria in search of better opportunities and now work as a Junior Analyst at Ernst & Young (EY) with an annual salary of $65,000.

My journey to Canada began in 2017 when I explored various paths like scholarships, work permits, and express entry programs. The living conditions in Nigeria had become increasingly challenging, and I was initially not expecting to land an analyst role at EY with just a BSc in economics from a Nigerian university. My main goal was to find entry-level blue-collar jobs to support myself as the costs of relocating through other means and not earning an income upon arrival were daunting.

I’m extremely grateful to both AMZ Recruitment and EY for recognizing my potential and making my transition to Canada much smoother. EY provided an excellent onboarding plan for expatriates in Canada, which helped me integrate into both the country and the company seamlessly.

Even though I left Nigeria, I’m still optimistic about the country’s future and am passionate about its improvement. To those considering leaving Nigeria, I advise against assuming that all your problems will vanish upon leaving. It’s crucial to plan meticulously and stay well-informed. As an immigrant, it’s important to continually contribute to the prosperity of your host country, as that’s why they granted you a visa in the first place.

Prepare yourself mentally to fulfill the purpose for which you were granted a visa and set clear goals before leaving Nigeria. If you ever find yourself in need of support or feeling stuck, it’s wise to seek advice from professionals in the fields of job placement or relocation. I personally used and highly recommend their services, but you can choose other trusted providers that suit your needs. It’s a more efficient and effective way to navigate the process. If I had known earlier, I would have used a professional service. We can’t predict what the Nigerian currency will be like next year. If I had converted my savings from 2017 to Canadian dollars, I would have had much more when I left in July 2023.

If I could achieve my goals without additional certifications and prior experience, I genuinely believe that anyone can. Always maintain faith in God, yourself, and your abilities, and distance yourself from negative influences. Remember, life is short, so make the most of it.
