Getting Started in ICT

I consider myself fortunate. I was born at the right time (I am a Millennial) at the right place (Nigeria) and with the right attitude (I am grateful to the mentors I have had over all the years)

Recently I was wondering what it took to get started in the profession. The emphasis on programming isn’t helping anyone. So without much ado, this is a distillation of the steps I have taken to get here:

  1. You need to jump in
  2. Find your passion
  3. You learn best by doing
  4. Create an online portfolio of your work
  5. Commit yourself to life long learning

I hope this helps someone out there get a better start than I did when I was starting out. Sorry I didn’t expand on the points. But I think they speak for themselves.
