Don't Give Up: After Several Rejections, I Got A Good Job by nathanjohn2808: 6:48am On Aug 18, 2018
Some of you must have seen my previous post on how I lost several jobs, even after reaching final stage.
https://www.nairaland.com/4603604/reached-final-stages-3-major
After I posted this, I reached final stages of two more and it looked so sure but then again, I got rejection mail. Sometimes, the interviewers will tell me how impressed they were but still reject me.
I was getting fed up. Every single week for three months, I would travel for one interview or the other, sometimes, two in a day and it all comes down to nothing.
But I noticed a trend in my application, the companies just kept getting bigger, if a smaller company rejects me today, a bigger one will call me for interview and it just kept increasing until the best I applied. I reached final stage and was scared I will be rejected just like the others but eventually got accepted to the glory of God.

Let me give you my stats so you will understand better.

More than 50 applications
Over 30 assessment tests in 3 months
About 25 interviews in the 3 months
Over 100k spent in transport (for an unemployed somebody, this is huge)
Reached final stages for 6
Got one

So never give up, life may be directing you, to me, I felt they were all preparing me for my dream job, and hell yea they were. People were getting concerned for me, how I was able to manage seeing rejections every single week but still dress up and go for just another interview with same enthusiasm. But after each rejection I just smile and say, 'that was not meant for me, it was just preparatory class' and the mindset worked.
Thank God.

Never give up, never lose faith.

Praise the lord.


A word of advise, when you have been blessed like this, don't build a high fence but build a longer table.

Congratulations! As I share in your joy today, I know that mine is on its way soon. Though not fully unemployed, I am looking forward to getting a better one having applied to several places. The worst of it is that I have not been invited for interview for most of my applications. Congrats once again.

Congratulations. I just want you to know its not as easy as for some people. You could afford 100k for transport alone in 3 months, I bet you, you are in another class of unemployed persons. Many cant even feed, many cant boast of 10k in the last 3 months. But then, you are one of the most privileged unemployed. Congrat for your doggedness anyway

In a working environment, getting a job, getting paid for a contract or a job well done, getting a visa, buying a car, etc. would not be testimonies.

I'm happy you got a job bro, but I'm also sad that normal events have become miracle/testimonies in Nigeria. Our fathers did not testify, they had options, some of them got good jobs on their graduation day. It is a job, a place you have to work and sweat. Employers should be testifying instead
