Along the line, Uche said she connected with a lady she met on social media with whom they had put in for the same aviation job at Dana Air.
Uche said it was then the lady revealed to her that she was invited for a job aptitude test. The kind lady identified as Maryam Adeleke harmlessly informed Uche of the venue, date and time for the job aptitude test.
Uche said she was sad and happy at the same time; happy her friend got an invite and sad that she didn't get any.
She took a daring step
Uche narrated that she decided to go for the job aptitude test despite not being invited and it clicked for her.
"I took a bold and courageous leap of faith, went for an aptitude test I wasn't invited for, and the rest they say is history.
"They say that when opportunity meets preparedness, success is bound to happen."
She appreciated the social media friend for being kind enough to let her in on the job update.
"I'm forever grateful to Maryam Adeleke for being an amazing friend to me even when she didn't have to."
YEN.com.gh gathered that though her friend Maryam was invited for the job aptitude test, she didn't eventually make the final cut.

"Oh dear! I'm so happy for you. Congratulations!
"I had a similar experience on my first job. I was serving at the time. My friend had been invited for an interview, while I had not even applied at all. She told me about the interview and the venue.
"I showed up to the interview with my CV. As they called your name, you went in to be interviewed. My dear, I walked into the interview room without anyone calling my name, as I had not even applied. I was about to be walked out when one of the interviewers asked that they let me proceed... The rest they say is history. I got the job!"

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported that a lady had got a job she didn't apply for after months of unsuccessful job-hunting.
In her Linkedln post highlighting her journey to securing this job, she said her job-hunting experience wasn't a palatable one.
She took to applying for graduate internship roles but all her efforts proved abortive. The lady named Queen had finally resorted to taking up a volunteering role only to get the shock of her life that she was scheduled for an interview for a job opportunity she didn't put in an application for.
