This facebook post of how a young man missed a job opportunity he was qualified for after a female friend of his picked his call, will make you very careful of who you associate with.
The post was made by Courage Ngele on a Facebook Etrepreneurship group. Courage was among the interviewers.
Here is what he wrote:
After a brief stop over at the ministry of commerce on Monday morning, I headed to a company I had worked for some years ago.
That was my first time of visiting the company years after my resignation. This time, I was there to assist with CV review/interview.
We reviewed the CV and cover letters of 30 applicants and only 5 were selected.
Reason why the others were tossed into the bin? Your guess is as good as mine.
It wasn’t about spelling errors or wrong use of tenses. That could be pardoned.
It was the consistent use of abbreviations. It was damn too much, I felt ashamed for the applicants.
One of the selected five, a young man of 29, stood out completely in regards to experience and expertise according to the records on his CV.
So we placed a call across to this gentleman and that was how he lost the job.
A female voice answered his call, and the lady(my colleague) on the interview panel responded… “good afternoon, my name is *******, I’m calling to speak with ##### in respect to his job application at $$$$$, can you please put him on the phone for a quick interview?”
That was the moment hell let loose. The female voice on the other end went berserk on the caller…
…”is this the new way of snatching boyfriends these days? Interview ba wo? Stupid olosho, you will not goan get your own man. You think you’re smart? Your format is dry. You’ll just die miserably. Jobless ashewo”
The phone was on speaker while all these was going on. Immediately, I reached to the red button and ended the call.
That was how the gentleman lost his opportunity.
Who knows how long he’s been praying for that moment?
Who knows how much he has sacrificed to get to that point?
Just a wrong choice in association, and he lost a rare chance.
Young man, be careful with your circle. Be very mindful of who you align with. Do not let the stupidity of one unfortunate being, ruin your chances of achieving your goals.
Don’t let two minutes of pleasure, rob you of your much desired ambition.
Your dreams are bigger than orgasm.
Guard your loins. Leave no loose ends. Get sense small. Think with your head, not with your Courtois.
Guy man no be the person wey him babe porsche pass. Guy man is a guy who’s steady getting it and has a lady who supports his big dreams and ambitions without emotional sentiment.
Remember, your dreams are bigger than orgasm.
