Should I Accept Or Reject This Offer? by Beckybeky(f): 2:09pm On Jun 27, 2015
So I went to an interview and after discussing with the potential employer, I realize it was a marketing job. In order to ascertain my ability to the job, he asked me to write down strategies I would use to market the product.

I had no problem with this so I went ahead and did so.

After reading it, he said he's not yet convinced. He gave me some flyers and said I should do what I can to get a particular number of clients within a given period. This is not free as I would be paid a certain sum of money. He also gave me some money for tfare.
What am able to bring in will determine if I get to continue or not.

Now my question is: Is this right? Do I have to prove myself before I get a job, apart from the normal interview process?

Pls mature advice needed, as I'm thinking of returning the damn money and flyers to them. Is there something I should have done that I didn't do?

If i got you well, you said sumtin like the job is about Marketing.

So why ask us if sharing fliers is part of the interview

Better go do am ooo, he Even gave you money and you are complaining..... What if he asked for puna or another difficult thing

To me you are risking a job that is almost yours....... Were many Nigerians are ready to work as fliers sharers, you dey d complain.


See eeeh, i no wan speak big English now until you loose dah job

Nothin wrong with that, i ve been in such positn were i was given a task to prove myself, tho it was not a marketin job.
I think wat u shud b more concern with is, how marketable d product is, how reasonable their utimatum/target is, n can u cope, so that d company wont take advantage of ur sex n desperatn.

Its not just abt sharing flyers.
There's a target to every mkting job in dis country. But why I even accepted is becos d product is marketable. It its sth like Insurance, I won't even bother.
Just dat I feel its not proper for them to ask me to go and prove myself first.

Ok dear buh we are talking about INTERVIEW here. Mind you anything can be an interview. Papers can be scattered carelessly and when you come in, you will b expected to pick it even without being told, you will not know it is part of the interview.

Prove to them you can do it. See you are not gonna b sharing fliers when you gain d job. Other person can b hired to do that...... Just hope d work and its pay is Sound for you.

I am counting on you to always win any challenge be it big or small..... Thank you, don't Mention!!!

I dunno,

Just imagine 20 of your type, distributing flyers and proving themselves..

They will end up using you guys and maybe laying you off.

Its either you are hired and then you can prove yourself than proving yourself and end up not been hired.

OP, I'm not quite sure I understand what you're asking. What did you mean by this: "after discussing with the potential employer, I realized it was a marketing job"? What position was advertised in the vacancy?

my opinion
A potential employer need to know what you can do and not what certificate you have acquired
for him its the best way to know if you can deliver or not
I advise you take it as a challenge, deliver the clients to his company even if you are not interested in the job, then make up your mind later.
The employer will respect you so much that he may give you a better offer

Day in day out, graduates are been embarrassed in dis country.
I feel if you have an urge for marketing and d pay is reasonable pls go ahead, but if u don't have the urge, u'd get frustrated.
In other words, I turned a similar job down just dis week. No salary but 13% of pay based on sales.
Marketing jobs full everywhere, FG should act faster than planned. Open up d mines, ports, create an enabling environment for foreign biz in areas of on ground manufacturing not assemblage. Also empower the citizenry nt with okada or taxi's or brooms. Train them on professional vocational courses and fund dem for start up. Dats all.
