How A Corper’s “Richness” Hindered Her From Getting Employed Today…


For daily inspiration and life lessons follow our new inspiring instagram page – @dearyoungnaijawoman

Twitter users are criticizing an employer who decided not to employ a youth corper because she looks too rich to be able to work as expected. According to @GirlLikeHer, she wants someone with ‘fire in her bellies’. However, when the youth corper came in, she thought she looked too sophisticated to work diligently.

While it has been advised that job seekers look their best when going for a job interview, it seemed this youth corper’s look was a threat to her boss.

How a Corper’s ’richness’ hindered her from getting employed today…

So I am looking for a youth Corper to fill specific roles in my department. What I am on the lookout for in an individual is: teachability, flexiblity and importantly a person with fire in their bellies…

Looking at her, I was in doubt she was a struggling Corper. She looked like she needed a place to sign attendance at, every month, not necessarily the stipend she would be paid. She had an iPhone and a shiny Apple wristwatch sitting pretty on her wrist.

First thought that crossed my mind was ’probably techy… The next thought was ”this one don chop belleful, will she be willing go grind”… I was quite undecided about her, to be honest…

After the interview I looked through the window and saw the latest Lexus with tinted glasses and covered number plates drive into the compound to pick her up… I made up my mind there and then, ”this Corper no go hear word”.

Twitter reacts

A lot of people rebuked her mentality as they noting that the impact of people like that may even be more than their presence at work.

What do you think about this? Is the employer right? or do you think these twitter users are just being ridiculous?

    You judged her on riches that aren’t her’s. Why didn’t you ask her few questions about what your judgemental heart told you. Soon you will need her help wait and see

    This is nonsense

    Nonsense I repeat

    You don’t judge people based on their outward appearance
    That job if offered to her would have changed a whole lot of things around her

    Employers and their stupid mindset is really absurd, most especially in Africa

    You ended up losing business ideas and connections, her riches would have given exposure which you apparently lack, she no go hear word abi, maybe you should be looking for employees who would love to work smart and take you to your next level, she didn’t lose the job, you lost your chance at growth and expansion, she obviously didn’t need your money, obviously has the connection to get better paying jobs with bigger organizations, did you even wonder why such a person choose to serve in your outfit, if she had shown up twice a month she could have done enough to make up for 2 months but pride and ego no gree you.

    With the look of things,the employer dont even have the quality’s of a CEO, for him/her to nurture such thought and brazenly putting it up on social media.the company might fold if he continues like this.

      Jayne Echioda if she was posted to work there then she has to give her reasons for rejecting her, but if the corper came to search the job herself, she definitely over did it, you should look smart while going for an interview not go to give an impression that u don’t actually need the job, cuz it’s all part of the interview.

      Chikezie Ehirim to me the employer had no right to act the way she/he did, for God sake she’s a corper. Even if she looked like gold so what?

    Pathetic.people work for different reasons not only for financial needs.infact money ought not to be motive for securing a job, is to give you fufilment of meeting people’s needs somehow.it’s sad the way our organization devalue people thinking you are just there to earn their money.
