department of Chemical Engineering with a Second Class Upper Degree has
narrated his difficulty in securing an executive job despite his tough
difficult to survive as a hardworking, honest and God fearing person
here in Nigeria. After my NYSC I have been struggling from place to
place, looking for opurtunities. I always shuttle from Lagos to Port
Harcourt…thinking that one day it will be well. I just discovered that
it will never be well..
my parents were happy when I got Chemical Engineering as a course of
study, then in school it was get a good result..that was no problem, I
got a second class upper.
NEBOSH certificate..then again some said it was connection..ok, I joined
lots of professional whatsapp groups after much work. I even had to pay
for some, funny enough the so-called professional group failed
first reason was because I am igbo, the woman saw my name and her
countenance changed though she dashed me N2,000 and told me the usual
words I would get back to you..ok, fair enough. The second was in Port
Harcourt, I was rejected because of my church – Roman catholic. A young
man who was also rejected for same reason he kept on complaining while I
was just laughing although, later I begged him for N100 for my
transport fare which he gave me.
they said I should just do further courses to boost my chances of
getting employed executively. I begged my mum to sell her motorbike for
N110,000 so I can add N30,000 and do process safety and loss prevention
which she accepted. I sold the bike and did the course.. yet, no
interview call. I said ok let me visit companies and give them the
cv..my brother no show.
to review the CV..still no luck.. downloaded CV review app used it time
and time again. same results.. no calls.
relatives of how lazy and weak I am. This is not fair, life itself is
not fair..is it not better to die? After working hard in school and
after school for about 8-10 years no result for it.
know many of us have same story, but for me the only thing I can do to
make the pain easy is by writing.
business? But how can you do well in business without long time
experience. It is always difficult. Well, the pressure is much and I see
that breaking point is close… only God knows tomorrow.
downloaded lots of books to see if I can find a solution, but none yet.
Please if you have good advice for me I am willing to hear it.
