Received a Mail from DPR... they invited me for Aptitude Test, but they dated it 1st August 1970 as the date of the exam and no venue was indicated. Sent a mail to them and yet to get a reply, I ignored them.

Op stop this madness right now, you talk as if your know what it takes to get into such organization in Nigeria.

2011 NNPC exam, done and dusted, got invitation letters for final interview, went for same and nobody in the country was called thereafter, was it on NAIRALAND or naijahotjobs (can't remember) we raised money to make publications in the dailies and organized a rally, the spoke man then Dr. Levi ajunuma died that Sunday from plane crash in Lagos. Rumors had it that he was to come and address the protesters the next Monday. RIP cry

2012/13 new application, wrote the test again, done and dusted, Phillips consulting even sent us congratulatory messages and said they would get in touch in a fortnight, omo na four years we dey go so, we no see their hand let alone the touch.

Bitter truth remains, federal character means awarding job opportunity slots to governors and traditional rulers at the detriment of the youths! angry

To be fair, after the delays, some here and naijahotjobs got their offer letters after that protest.
Going for a final interview does not mean you have gotten the job. Just don't give up.
You don't get my point, we didn't have to protest to get offer letters bro, the leader of that protest (I have forgotten his moniker) got the offer.

I'm disappointed when one of my friends told me she had just got her Appointment Letter with Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR). I almost not agreed with her until she sent me the picture of the Letter. I'm willing to share the printed Appointment Letter here, only that would become an insult to our teeming Son(s) of nobody who had recently received an Aptitude test invitation from DPR.
As long as I can remember, that was the same thing that had happened with the recent concluded FIRS recruitment. Son(s) and Daughter(s) from poor origins had been busy applying for the job online while their Son(s) and Daughter(s) had been given the printed Appointment Letter already.
You see, this is the situation in my beloved Country Nigeria. Corruption and Nepotism has embedded, transversed the length and breadth of our Dear Nation. It has engulfed it totally to make us all the victims. Well! I do not blame the Country's Pacesetters only. I would rather blame the populace who voted and allowed these corrupt, unjust individuals to rule, developed and permitted a System like this to exist. An unjust, non Meritocracy System.
As a child of Nobody in this Country you can only dream to have NPower jobs when their Son(s) and Daughter(s) can get job offers from fine and lucrative Government Agencies like DPR while from the comfort of their bed.
So Pathetic!!!
All the best to those that would be writing the test sha!

Quite sad, but lets flip the table for a second shall we..

If you had a sister prepping for the aptitide test as well, and then a friend of a friend who's connected, offers to give her automatic employment independent of her test results. What will be your advice to her?
