Hi, I'm Monale.

Welcome to Work Smart Nigeria. A career platform filled with career advice and tips I wish was available to me when I graduated from University. The inspiration for the site came from my own struggles and challenges starting out in the marketplace.

I remember graduating from Babcock University in 2005 and wondering, what next? Unlike the few geniuses out there, I didn't walk into the job market with a clear idea of what I wanted to do. It took a bit of trial and error to finally realize what I enjoyed doing (read about that here). 

Having worked with nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and lectured at the University level, I use my career story to inspire young Nigerian professionals to take charge of their careers.
