Dchessking described it as shameful, adding that her letter showed the biggest fraud was in the country's educational system. He wrote on X:

"I asked a Nigerian graduate who applied to work in sales at my company to write a letter to me as part of the interview process, stating the salary range she believes she deserves. After reviewing this letter, it's evident that the biggest fraud lies within our education system. Shameful!"

Opinions divided on the graduate's letter

@jerrynuelfx said:

"It is seriously appalling when we see these certificates and call them up for interviews with high hopes that we are about to grab a rare gem to be part of our team, only for them to go through the basic interview process and leave us all in shock; like, did you school at all?"

"Due to the seeming culture shift in talking more as opposed to writing more these days, it appears a lot of upcoming Nigerians are losing it in writing.
"Lots of people now want to talk more and not write at all. We see it in WhatsApp groups all the time. It is well sha."

"She is doing it for the money not because she qualifies. Kindly get her a different role if possible so she can support her family. It's sad but in anyway you can help her, please try."

"This is facts. I remember taking an interview for a sales business I had a few years ago. People with BSCs and MSCs applied and their cover letter was mostly either copied or appalling to read. I won’t totally blame the educational system, I’ll also blame the lackadaisical attitude of some people to learning."

Corper's letter to PPA surprises people

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a corps member's letter to his PPA had shocked many.

His usage of English amused netizens. Apart from the poor punctuation evident throughout the letter, Idris' English was far below average. Spelling errors also marred the poorly put-together letter.

Idris communicated in the letter that he was newly married, was running a business and could not get decent accommodation in Abuja.
