I live in Nigeria, i don’t mind a remote work since there aren’t any companies in my area
Like Kristof points out, get some background in the terminology and process initially.
Nigeria has a huge tech startup community - my bet would be to get very familiar with mobile apps , notably Android, how to deploy apps and how to really test android apps, and then go hunting.
The “Internship” scene is pretty quiet in the UK lately, but I doubt Nigeria has been impacted by the same slowdown, I keep hearing about African success stories coming out of Nigeria. Internship is going to be aimed at university students, and only large companies tend to be able to afford to run such programs. Probably not a lot of those in Nigeria being very much about innovation and startups still from what I hear on the radio.
