Why Someone With N200k Phones Was Denied A Job He Qualified For by Nobody: 3:36pm On Nov 07, 2018
One Mr Okeke reported an incident in his company on Twitter recently. On why a highly q individual was denied a dream opportunity.


Someone recently didn't get a job cos he was in possession of two phones worth over 200k but his last academic/professional certification was 4 years ago. Lead interviewer simply said "If he can't add value to himself, I don't see him adding value to this firm"


I find quite Funny but do you agree with the recruiter's decision. I feel the dude definitely find value in his phone, so the recruiter can't just assume that trash. What do you think?

The recruiter was only looking for an avenue to deny the applicant of the job.

Ability to add value to a firm is not hinged on the number of certification but rather your practical capabilities.

Certificate is nothing, but is so unfortunate that we place so much value on it here.

Practical knowledge is the driving force behind innovation.

How could a person having 200k phone still be looking for job , I think he need to ask God for divine intervention. Or may be na repented G-Boy.

This ur submission is crass. You only reasoned from ur level. Do you know the company he went for interview? Or he should rather sell his 200k phones and start a business as some of you normally say.
The company is confused.

He could be from a wealthy home. His Parents, Uncle, Aunt or even GF could buy him a phone. Not to mention side hustle. Must everyone be suspect??

I have met people that want jobs just to pass time, not as if they need it,.

Maybe that was what the interviewer saw, but some interviewers can be useless.

As funny as its seems, I see the point of the interviewer. If the applicant presents an MSc, there would probably be no comment of that sort.
Nigeria is getting to the point where first degree won't have much value because a significant part of our population holds first degree. It's important we upgrade ourselves

Two things are involved in this interview

1. The interviewee is a proud guy. He shouldn't have gone to that interview with 2 phones.

2. The interviewer is a wicked guy. This type of guys will not waste time to give that job to a girl.

Why did he go to job interview with phones worth his monthly salary ?

Some of you have no idea of the mindset of business owners, if someone who is jobless at the moment, and for four years did not try to get more certifications but is using not, one phone, but two phones worth over his monthly worth, I am confused as to why he should show up looking for a job with his monthly worth in phones. He should have kept one at home.

He does not need a job, he needs common sense.

Yes those phones formed a bad impression


It could be that one or both of them were gifts, but taking both to a job interview was wrong.


Imagine someone coming to beg you for money to feed or start a business wearing Gucci shoes and carrying a Versace bag?

In all sincerity what would be your reaction?


What if he has a high taste and after getting the job his salary isn't enough to satisfy it. What do you think will be his next option especially if he works in accounts department?



First impressions especially on first dates, at first business meetings or job interviews can either make or mar our chances of getting further.

I still wonder at those insulting the interviewer. He may have not done well for the wrong reason: concluding that the candidate cannot add value, however, he was very on point to say the candidate hasn't added any value to himself yet he uses a 200k phone.

Good citing, ma'am. If I were the interviewer, and I realized the phone was a gift, I would ask: why didn't you sell the phone to purchase a cheap one just to attend any class at all, even if you couldn't afford the exam fee?

I don't even understand you people mind you for him to have been interviewed he must Have the basic requirements which the company wanted so what else if he has sold his phone to attend classes will that guarantee him getting the job? will they Increase his pay
Remember any company that employs u dont like u it just want to use u to achieving its aim with this mindset u da boss

How on earth one goes for interview and the interviewer got to see his or her two phones, in the first place the phones are supposed been in pockets or ur bags. I guess he went there showing off his two big phones and the interviewer noticed how unwise and arrogant the guy. Served him right!

many intwrvier using stupid reason to disqualified best candidate like" how much do u think we can be paying u as salary" to me, I see it as rubbish because u already knew how much u are paying in ur company. do u want the applicants to tell u #10000 ni. many job interviewers are low life person.
