Hi, I’m Adedokun Solomon Kayode, a 400L student of Computer Science. I’m currently undergoing my IT at the Ministry of Science and Technology, Alausa Ikeja, Lagos state.
How did you get there, and what works do you do? Was it easy getting placement there? Suggest other places where people in your department can train.
Word of mouth and voilà I went to apply. We don’t attend a lot of lectures here. It’s minimal then we record and carry files around, then chill😃.
Yes, getting a placement here is quite easy. Computer science students can undergo IT at Computer firms, and studios etc.
What was the first shock you experienced at your IT place?
The shock of having to sit down all day, if work doesn’t surface.
Interesting things about the place
The most interesting thing is the WI-FI. I also particularly enjoy talking to the computer training tutor.
What are the challenges you face every day since you started your IT?
Sitting idle sometimes.
What have you learned other than things related to academics?
Yes, I learnt how to use a photocopier and also sort and arrange files manually.
From your brief experience, which is easier? Work or School?
Work is! Why? Because you only read for leisure, personal development is not to be graded with but I miss school sha.
Has your IT program contributed to your academic and personal life?
Taught me patience on yet another level. It taught me how to hustle and that at every level of the place you find yourself in this country, change is waiting to be enacted upon.
