In this poster we introduce our work in progress examining

the relationship between ICTD and Nigerian users' career aspirations.

We propose that an Internet information resource can in

uence a per-

son's aspirations both through its informational content and through

other psychological processes. We summarize work performed to date,

particularly interviews and a focus group conducted at two urban uni-

versities in January, 2017. Although analysis of the data has just begun,

we can identify preliminary trends in the qualitative data that point the

way to how we might augment our approach in future phases.
