- A Nigerian woman has taken to social media to celebrate being off the job hunting market
- Akinrokun Tolulope said she had been seeking employment opportunities for some time to no avail
- She reluctantly applied for one she wasn't qualified for and got a surprising response
A lady got the shock of her life after she applied for a job she originally ruled herself out as being qualified for.
The Nigerian woman named Akinrokun Tolulope, in a Linkedln post, said she had been job hunting without success for a while but got a job because someone took a chance on her.
Narrating how it happened, Tolulope stated that she came across a job offer on Twitter platform and followed up by chatting the poster expressing her interest to go for an entry level role if available as she wasn't eligible for it.
The young graduate was said to have applied after being egged on by the poster and eventually she was picked.
Her post reads:
"Have been #job hunting for a whileI saw a job offer on twitter. I Dm the person who twitted.
"I told him I wasn't qualified but should in case he has any entry level or has anyone who wants to employ an entry-level he should please dm me. He said "you should just apply because you might be qualified".
"He sent a contact I called and was told to come with my credentials that day by 3p.m. For me, it was too real to be true I said to myself could it be GNLD, immediately I use Google search to know what the company does, at that point I was sure it's real.
"I went and I must say grace found me. Someone took a chance on me. #happynewmonth"
Reacting to her story, a Linkedln user, Oludolapo Adewale said:
"This is great news Akinrokun Tolulope. This is a lesson to us all to keep trying and not look down on ourselves. One can get a job from any platform, just stay consistent. I wish you a lovely stay there."

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a Nigerian lady had celebrated getting a job she didn't apply for, to the surprise of many.
In her Linkedln post highlighting her journey to securing the job, she said her job-hunting experience wasn't a palatable one.
