How I Almost Rejected My Best Worker / Lady Confronts An Able-Bodied Beggar Who Rejected Her N35k Job Offer In Ajah / Meet Job Hunter Who Got 30 Interviews But Was Rejected Because Of His Neck Tatto (2) (3) (4)
|Rejected Again, Hope Lost by 9jagovernor: 6:25pm On Sep 20, 2023
I read a post made by a lady this week on this forum about how she lost a job because she failed their medical but she later got a better job.
I received a rejection mail today with a job I thought I have already secured having passed the first and the second stage of the interview and even did medical in their premises and all hopes were high for me, I was already seeing myself as a staff of the company with lots of preparation from my own end.
Having waited for over 3 weeks without response, I mailed them last week with them telling me they'll respond soon. I received the shocker this afternoon with a rejection mail staring at me in my inbox.... Hot tears rolled down my eyes followed by depression.
I had to reply the HR why I was not selected cos we were 2 jostling for the position and the other person didn't scale through the second interview and subsequently didn't do the medicals which means I was the sole candidate. She just said it was the Management's decision. I guess I failed the medical.
My Single mom was the only person I could text, shared the news with and she was just encouraging me cos it's just the of us...I'm her only child.
Truth be told, I'm tired. I'll be 30 next week, no better job in the table, no investment, no wife, no children, no savings.... I'm just hanging in there.
I shared my previous rejection experience in Lagos not quite long
And facing this one again is heartbreaking. I currently work for a firm where I am paid 50k out of which I'm returning 25k to mum to pay off the loan she took from her teaching job as she took the loan to pay my school fee while in school together with some expenses, transport chunk off larger Percentage of the remaining salary and at the end of the day, I'm left with little or nothing with debts hanging around me. I am even owing someone 30k right now with the promise to pay the person at the end of this month from my salary (I believe in miracles).
I need help, I need a better job. The only thing carrying me is my baby face as people hardly believe I'm old.
I am a computer science graduate 2.1, I am proficient in Microsoft office suites, hardware and software maintenance, office administration as I am currently a secretary where I work, I have experience as a Logistic officer too. I currently reside in Ogun but don't mind relocating.

Hey you have no excuse not to have an online income means that gives you @least $100 monthly...get your lazy ass & brain to work smart ok.
9jagovernor:Start by posting whatever digital skill you can offer on your whatsapp status.
If you yet have a DS download sololearn app...i can't mentor you here moreso mentorship will attract fee. So you need self-learn if you can't afford paid mentorship.
Lest i forget create an online presence portfolio on clippings.me...signup on upwork and reddit too.
Post the clippings.me profile you get to create on your LinkedIn account.

I'm glad you are a male and not a female, you still have age on your side.
The first thing is this, as regarding marriage, you need to get a partner not girlfriend but a real partner that will marry you.
Marriage can even open doors
Two heads are better than one
Find a lady that believes in her self and believes in you and both of you can plan the future together.

It will be well
I am also in the same shoes
I will be 30 next year and nothing really is going well for me
I just believe my story will end in happiness
I also think you should have that kind of mindset
Life is in phases
You are just passing through a tough phase and you can ask God to help you
By the way... move closer to God
He never disappoints

Profwriter:Op don't marry in this economy
That's the beginning of poverty

Profwriter:Which lady will even stand by a broke nigga these days, I can't even use my poverty inconvenient someone's daughter
|Re: Rejected Again, Hope Lost by Profwriter(m): 5:19am On Sep 21, 2023
You are not poor or broke, you just don't have much money yet.
Don't define your life with the size of your pocket.
Some girls are privileged and they won't even need your money

PapaNnamdi:Be nice!! Pls pet him.
|Re: Rejected Again, Hope Lost by PapaNnamdi: 10:59am On Sep 21, 2023
U pet him too much he will say he wants to kill himself that life is unfair to him,
Is life fair to anybody?
The successful put in sweat and blood to get there,
U wan to belike them and you looking for who will pamper you,
Tell him to keep playing,
He ain't seen nothing yet
|Re: Rejected Again, Hope Lost by PapaNnamdi: 11:03am On Sep 21, 2023
Nigerians need to knw say life hard
Until u de HR position u no go really understand wetin buhari mean by youths are lazy,
That lazyness comes from entitlement
He don de confident say he get job,
So now that company didn't give him he should move on and look for options that work,
Not looking for pity
Nothing works if you don't work,
He should knw if he can get to that stage in an interview trying in 4 to 5 others he will get a job,
What am I saying, he is even under employed and earning 50k, maybe that was what the company noticed and decided not to go on with the process

9jagovernor:Brotherly before the regrets and self pity, talk first thing first. If you succinctly remember the medical exams that you carried out, kindly run all of them in a reputable lab or hospital. If you suspect that you failed your medical exam, you should be more worried about your health than the rejection. Let me tell you a story, when I Joined the banking sector some years ago, I almost failed my medicals cos my BP was just shooting high for no reason, na God epp me. If I didn't do that medical, I wouldn't know that I was already having pre hypertension. One of my other colleague had to leave the training school and resign cos a week into training, he was discovered to have Tuberculosis. Health is Wealth my brother, address this challenge first before pitying yourself.

HarunaWest:Hmmmn. Thanks bro. I recently had my medical check up too and nothing serious is in my system
|Re: Rejected Again, Hope Lost by Fab21: 7:38am On Sep 22, 2023
@OP, you're not alone.
Going through same thing, here.
Atleast you've something that's coming in for you.
It's not easy bro especially if you're a Nigerian and you're not from a rich family, or relatives that can support you.
You'll need to build from the scratch; which comes with rejection, hardwork, insults, frustration, depression and ignominy.
I've gone through this. Just keep on pushing you'll get there.
Atleast you got to medical stage. You'll definitely get something meaningful.
