In other news, a social media user identified as @ThatPHCboy a while ago, took to the microblogging platform, Twitter, to recount the story of a female employer who has formed the habit of scamming job seekers, and making them render cheap labor.
According to his narration, the woman usually puts out vacancies for the position of chefs and subjects candidates that make the shortlist to an interview process which involves a lot of large scale cooking. Upon the completion of the cooking process, she disperses with the promise of contacting them again if they have been employed, a promise, which is nothing but a hoax.
