- Adepitan Bero is a Nigerian engineer who decided to get a job without pay
- According to Bero, he made such decision because the job market was already saturated
- The man said he was privileged to meet one employer that gave him the job and accommodation out of compassion
A Nigerian engineer identified as Adepitan Bero has said he once worked at an organisation without getting paid.
Bero said he decided to search for a job without pay because the job market was already saturated with lots of unemployed graduates and his chances were very limited despite having a high grade.
Legit.ng gathers that the engineer, who made the disclosure on LinkedIn, said he knew he had to do something to get out of the idle mode.
He said: "I was privileged to meet one who out of compassion felt I was more determined to be busy than being idle. I got the job with an accommodation, though without monthly pay.
"While this wasn't easy, what I gained was enormous. I began to learn through the ropes. Right there I understood workplace competition & undue politics. I knew there was much to just getting a job."
In other news, two Nigerians identified as Kate Onah and Emmanuel Ngbede are living their lives serving humanity by feeding and empowering the poor with their salaries.
Kate is a radio host who is passionate about putting a smile on people's faces through her outreach, Legit.ng has learnt.
The radio host invites health workers to attend to people whenever she organises vocational skill workshop. She said it is important to organise free medical care because most people do not have money to go to the hospital.
Legit.ng cited a video by League of Extraordinary Nigerians in which both humanitarians spoke on their service to humanity.
Kate empowered over 200 women for vocational training, and some of those she trained are now training others and doing well for themselves.
Ngbede, who is an artist, said he grew up in a poor family which had his mother as the breadwinner who single-handedly trained the children.
