Before enrolling for a Ph.D., Janet was an Assistant Lecturer at the Federal University of Technology, Akure, after leaving the industry.

As a young graduate and female in the construction industry who experienced depression while working as a site engineer, her experience spurred her interest into researching measures to improve employee satisfaction and mental health.
