Open Letter To Nigerian HR Managers/recruiters. by VickypediaPHC: 11:42am On Jan 08, 2019
Unemployment in Nigeria has become a very serious issue amongst educated youths in Nigeria. As much as people have advocated for Enterprenuership as a driving force behind every growing economy, it is equally important to under that some individuals are career oriented and can only do business on part time to have more streams of income.
For me, Enterprenuership in Nigeria isn't was it is in other more coordinated economies of the world, the word ENTERPRENUERSHIP is been used by our Political class to shy away from their responsibility of creating jobs in the public sector and they haven't created the right business environment.

I write this short but fact-based article based on recent happenings in Nigeria by HR Managers/Recruiters. I have made few observations that I will love to share here;

THE A-FACTOR
Most HR Officers and recruiters have adopted the habit of technically taking advantage of most job seekers, you ask for 5 years experience, not more than 28 years yet you have a terrible and unfair employee emoluments, salary and poor remunations. Take advantage of high demand against supply is no yardstick for such unfair practices.
HR officers/Recruiters want quality personnels at cheap and degrading salaries. Most Job seekers have spent much in aquiring expensive but relevant skills and experience, only to be offered peanuts as remunations. For some recruiters, it's another way of telling you that they aren't interested in recruiting you.

THE B-FACTOR
Some HR Managers and recruiters gather young graduate and experienced professional just to make mockrey of them. Why invite a job seeker for an interview only to tell him or her that they don't meet the job requirements. Did you (recruiter) not go through their CV/Resume before inviting them for the interview? Some are waiting for slightest opportunity for 1st class graduates to make a simple mistake, sometimes out of nervousness just to insult or question the authenticity of their certificate. Attitudes like this creates negative & biased feelings amongst job seekers, it's very unprofessional and has to stop!

THE C-FACTOR
Some HR Managers and recruiters invite job seekers for an interview when they have gotten somebody or already have someone in mind to offer the job opening to. The just waste people's precious time and money just to end up not taking anyone of them. Job seekers in Nigeria this day go as far as applying for jobs in Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt and other states where opportunities exist even when they are not residing in those states because of the unemployment problems in Nigeria. Some enter night buses, fly airplanes and make sacrifices only to be technically mistreated. It's in human and very uncivil. Needless inviting someone for a job you have someone in mind, you conduct interviews to fulfill righteousness.

THE D-FACTOR
HR Managers and recruiters should try to avoid religious, gender, age, racial, University/polytechnic discrimination and physically challenged during recruitment excercises. As much as some could be used to reduce the number of applicants, some job openings should give equally and fair treatments to everyone.
Conclusively, these above unfair and unprofessional treatment of Job seekers by HR Managers and recruiters in Nigeria should be looked into by Nigerian government and Nigerian Labour Congress. To all HR Managers and Recruiters who have been unbaised, professional and fair to Job seekers, keep up the good work, also to all Job seekers, never give up, a breakthrough awaits you.

So on Point! Some HR personnel are not even qualified enough to be at the other end of the table conducting an interview for a potential employee. I know of an employer who invites applicants for interview just to threaten the current staffs because he feels they are not doing enough despite their obvious commitment to the job.
