You have just left architecture school in Nigeria, possibly with 2 degrees and a chip on your shoulder. You’d have binged heavy on Calatrava and Hadid, but little about the work of GHK, ACCL, Shokunbi or Anetor right in front of you.

You will apply for jobs claiming advanced proficiency in software you don’t use. You will get creative with titles for volunteering roles you barely did in uni. You will pass off academic group work as yours where you did nothing. Your resume will be a motley of achievements. It will pump you up.
