'I Got A Job I'm Not Qualified For': A Testimony That Fuels Mediocrity - Man / God Gave Me A New Job In This Recession Period After Losing My Banking Job / Finally Landed A Very Good Job Even In This Recession (2) (3) (4)
|How I Got A Job In This RECESSION by kilokeys(m): 9:14pm On Oct 14, 2016|
I would not regard myself an extrovert, but, desperate times calls for desperate measures.
on random days, ill wear my best corporate look, visit eatries, parks, events, symposiums and just get talking with pple..
after the convo.. i go straight to the matter.. ,'' oga, epp me.. i need a job''.
then the reply comes,'' oh, really, so what can u do?''
i go, ''i am an engineering grad, hse competent, ISPON member, having some Nebosh certs, a chef , a multi-instrumentalist, a poet experienced in loans, facility management, personnel management and executive assistance.. sir, there must be something i can do for you.'' I get his card, and follow up.
To be frank, i have gotten many rebuffs, '' will you leave my presence this very minute, sorry try someone else, are you a 419er, excuse me... but it didnt deter me.
on a good day last month, I went about my normal routine of stalking.. met a great dude at a professional exam venue, we talked.. he called, fixed an interview.. i was the only dude present. I got the Job.
morale of this crazy story: i was a facility manager once, many cvs have been dropped in my office..i went through none. so i figured, how many folks go through cvs submitted online?
if you meet 5 new people everyday, there are chances you would meet somebody that needs one of your services, thats if you are very resourceful.. Ladies and gentlemen.. besides online applications, step out there and stalk these dudes, your skills, charm and wit might favor you.
i got a job , only interviewee, no application.

You are an extrovert. most extroverts don't normally see themselves as one! Congratulations though.

Thanks bro. Let me start with you.
I am a graduate of Industrial Mathematics from the University Of Benin and certification in Customer Relationship Management. I am a conscientious person who works hard and pays attention to detail. I'm flexible and quick to pick up new skills and eager to learn from others. I also have lots of ideas and enthusiasm for the position of a customer service personnel and administration.
I would be elated if you can help me with a job placement.
I would be ready to mail you my resume as soon as you reply my direct message.
If you don't have any suitable openings at the moment, I would be grateful if you would get back to me with any future possibilities at firstname.lastname@example.org
God Bless You.

Zceesneh:After reading. ... then quoting his entire testimony... this is what you gathered?...that he was stopping everybody to talk to? Wow! @ Op... congrats!...another way of networking... fastest way to get a job! Too many people give up... saying they don't have comnections... when they can hit the streets like you and make connections. For those wanting to follow in Op's footsteps.... print business cards to hand out. Why?...let's say you engage me in a convo... at the end... say your qualifications/skills/whatever .. but at the moment I know of no vacancy. .. how would I contact you if I do later?...do you really thin I would then spend extra time with you to write your name and #? Have a card ready...that I can easily take and store away.

I got mine through an unexpected phone call from a friend I hadn't seen in years after all efforts didn't yield results. May be a miracle or sort.
