Sometimes, the only thing needed for a great change to happen in one’s life is a brave move from a comfortable zone to an unfamiliar place.
A man identified as Adama Thiam has revealed what he faced at a company he used to work for and how that set him up for unimaginable greatness.
He said that his former workplace rejected him for a new role despite the fact that he was the most suitable for the job.
Adama said that after losing the opportunity, he got to know that the person who made it was a friend of his boss.
Tired of the toxic politics in his office, he said that he began sending out applications to other companies for employment.
In three months, he got a well-paying job and moved. After he had left, his boss started calling to offer him the position he missed but Adama replied:
“Thanks but no thanks.”
The young man said the experience taught him many lessons among which were; not getting a job does not mean one is not qualified, and rejection sometimes leads to redirection.
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a lady turned down an offer of a very good job because she is scared of the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos state.
A Twitter user, Lola Okunrin, made it known on Wednesday, December 2, saying the job was going to be paying a salary of N190,000 every month.
When the lady applied for the job, she thought she would be working at the mainland branch of the company. Okunrin said due to the COVID-19 pandemic, operations were restricted to just the company's offices on the island.
