Eromosele got several rejections

Narrating his ordeal, he revealed that a company’s once HR told him:

“You should be sleeping, we don’t want your type here (referring to my current walking impediment). You won’t give a good look to our business.”

Keep pushing, you will succeed

Two months ago, a company did not allow him to proceed to the next stage of physical assessment despite the fact that he was more qualified than most.

His new job at KPMG gives him the opportunity to work remotely and report to the office occasionally. Eromosele, therefore, advised people to keep pushing hard at their goal irrespective of trials.

The man said few weeks after he started work as a project engineer to build a filling station in Ibadan, he was fired.

He added that the development came despite the fact that people commended the fence work he did, saying it was amazing.
