My Friend's Interview Experience With A Company In Lekki by merit455(m): 6:57pm On Jun 13, 2019
My very good friend was invited for a job interview today in Lekki,very close to Ajah. He really prepared for the interview and even call me to borrow him some cash for transport.

The interview time was 10am,since he will be going from mainland, he wake up very Early, I call him around 8am to check on him,he was already in 3rd mainland bridge.

At exactly 9:05 am,the company secretary call him that the interview has been cancelled, he was already in Chevron, just closed to the venue.

The most annoying part is that she didn't say the interview was rescheduled, but completely cancelled! How can people be this wicked,why allowed him sit more than 2 hours in traffic.

This is not fair.

Your friend ought to have proceeded to the company and see things by himself ,what if the secretary has a candidate whom she fear may not be considered because of your friend's profile ,he could have simply check on the people in the office under the pretence that he was not sure of the next date for the interview

this is very true... Lots of shits happen during job search...

I know someone that was given employment letter on a thursday, told to resume on Monday, got a call on Saturday to come with the letter on Monday.. On Monday the employment letter was collected back and they told him sorry... Later found out that the MDs friend cousin needed a job and needed a slot asap

If na me, na to just reach the venue and form as if I never got the call. Here, I can ask questions to know if to hope for a reschedule interview or out rightly forget and move ahead..
I can not come and be in traffic for 2hours in vain na

They must have swapped his placement. Why didn't he still get to the office?

Even those of us that claim to have jobs are slaves to our bosses that keep tossing us up and down. I rather have a job that pays less, gives me peace of mind and is able to take care of Family's need.

I travelled from Ibadan to Lagos for an interview,

After staying for about an hour in the company reception, a lady came to us, we were just 3, that she just checked our cv and that we were not the kind of person they were looking for.

Ooops

Mention the name of the company. Let's know firms like this. Because I'm sure they'll still pull this stunt on others in the not-so-distant future.

May we all find our dream jobs

Finding your dream job is an internal thing NOT EXTERNAL!
There is no dream job out there . What we have is modern day slavery just like you rightly pointed out.

WHAT IS A DREAM JOB?

To me, a dream job should be that which gives you, TIME, MoNEY and LOCATION freedom.
That is , you can choose when to work, with whom to work and where to work. At same time, it supplies you with steady streams
of income to meet your goals and aspirations in life. In such job, your income has no limit ! You are free to travel to any where you wish whenever you want and your income supply never cease. You dream job should give you fulfillment and sense of service to God and humanity!

IS THE DREAM JOB POSSIBLE ?
Yes, but but many are searching for it in the wrong place!

Friends, I don't know of any job in the corporate world that will give you such. I have searched far and wide, No one!
The only place you can find your dream job is in your mind, your heart of hearts. Your head and your spirit!
Yes! Explore it! Think ! Think !! Think !!!
You have a unique assignment and purpose to accomplish in this life.
That is why you were born in the first place. The day you find your purpose , you land your dream job!.

Search within! I don't care if you are a graduate or not! You have an innate ability or what they call talent or skill .
That is the passport to your dream job in life. Find it, explore and develop it if you don't want to remain in the corporate rat race.

How did the likes of Davido, Omotola, Alibaba, Linda Ikeji, Akin Alabi , King Sunny Ade found their dream job?
You have the answer!
Stop wasting your time in search of dream job where there is none.
Wake up ! For we are in the information age.
The knowledge economy has great respect for the value you bring to the table not your certificate.
This mean any Ade, Obi or Usman can be the wealthy king!
Discover your skills and develop them. If you don't have any, go acquire one.
Find a problem, become the solution and land your dream life.
YOUR DREAM JOB IS IN YOUR CALLING....FIND IT!
ITS IN YOU AND NO WHERE ELSE...STOP THE JOB HUNTING CRAZE!
The rule for the game have changed! YOu can be in your house and make enough to pay a bank manager and his staff?
My story is a practical case study! If I can, you can...Any one can!
I don talk finish!
Catch Yaah!!!
