Hi! My name is Monale. Welcome to my work-style blog, filled with career advice and tips I wish was available to me when I graduated from University. 

I remember graduating 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 lot of trial and error to finally realize what I enjoyed doing (read about that here), and the rest as they say is history.

The inspiration for the site came from my own struggles and challenges starting out in the marketplace. Friends, getting a degree is just the first step in a series of career decisions.

  • How do you stand out in a sea of equally (or even more) qualified applicants? 

  • How do you deal with a difficult colleague or boss? 

  • What if you don't like your job? How do you transition from one industry to another?

These are the kinds of questions we answer on Work Smart Nigeria through informative and engaging content.

Great careers don’t just happen, they are made.
