A young security guard recently served as an inspiration for many after he displayed a ton of determination. According to a Facebook post by Karabo Lefa, the security guard found out there was an opening at the bank where he was working.
As a graduate, he saw an opportunity to get the position and so he asked his manager if he could apply. After he did the aptitude test, it was found out that the guard was actually the best-performing candidate.
"Long and short is this security guard told this bank manager he is a business graduate, and asked to be included in the ongoing aptitude test. On Monday he was hired as the best candidate. Never underestimate yourself, always be assertive," wrote Karabo.
Soon he was out of his security uniform and in his office clothes as he was awarded the position. The Facebook post features the guard standing proudly next to the manager in before and after photos. View the post below.
