How I Almost Rejected My Best Worker by Deeprooted: 11:49am On Sep 10, 2022
Before the interview, I was discouraged by her appearance.

I had to put a call through to the hiring firm, expressing my disappointment. However,so as not to make her feel bad, I decided to ask her a few questions in relation to the job. To My utmost surprise, she said she had never held the position. This justified by anger.

Long story short, she was hired.


She was taught her role within few days and that's all! She's now the best worker in all ramifications.


Lesson to all employers, do not hire base on experience alone.

Sell yourself, that's the best way employer(s) can see the best in you.

A clear case of don't judge the book by its cover.

Inexperienced job seekers will function optimally if given the right training and enabling environment to strive.

If you didn't hire her, another person would have done that with a better pay.

Try to increase her salary

Definitely another person would have seen the potential in her and employ her if you refused her the position... thank God you followed your instinct...

The kind of Job, you no talk...
What led to you employing her, you no talk
Key aspect to the story, which would make the lesson make sense to the readers you didn't mention,
Then you said don't hire based on BLa bla bla...
Lol, Says a whole lot!

You have done well as that will go a long way in encouraging her to do more for the organization as her input is recognized and rewarded, kudos to you boss.

We have suffered so much in our country that every little good thing seems too good to be true to us. I understand your standpoint so I don't need you to believe me.

It's hard to find qualified and trusted employee in the present day Nigeria.

If you find one, appreciate and treat them well.

A guy came for interview with a bathroom slippers in the telecom firm I worked(I swear this is not a joke). We all laughed, you know the kind of laughter that is laced with anger. To cut the long story short, he was hired and placed under an intense probation. He eventually became an astute fiber engineer in the history of the company. The saying that goes thus " don't judge a book by its cover" is real.

Happens all the time.

Which is the reason that when I coach interviewees, I tell them to lift up their chin because if you are really worth the job and the employer rejects you, it is much more strategic loss to the employer.

Recruitment is actually by far the toughest job of a business owner. Many often realise that just too late in the party.
