- A young Nigerian lady has said that despite the fact that she has sent over 1000 applications out, she will not give up
- Favour revealed that the only few offers she got at some interviews provided very miserly pay packages
- Many people who sympathised with her unemployment condition offered to help her better position for the labour market
A young Nigerian lady, Favour Onaruyi-Obasuyi, has taken her unemployment frustration to LinkedIn as she spoke about her several failed attempts at getting a job.
In a long post, the lady revealed that she has been jobless since November 2020. Between that year and now, she applied for more than 1,000 job opportunities as they all hit a rock.
Salaries too small
For the few that she was able to get an interview, their salaries according to her were very low. Favour said even people stopped accepting her LinkedIn connection requests, a situation she reasoned could have been caused by her job-seeking situation.

Favour revealed, among other things, that she is good at YouTube content creation. Many Nigerians have since commented on her story.

On Tuesday, February 9, Victoria took to the street of Abuja with cardboard that reads, "Please I need a job".
