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”.
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.
Instead of employing her and trying to gain access to her connects to grow your client base, you're here looking outside the window and doing monitoring spirit in this 2019 like this. Oga ooooooo

Profiling is actually terrible. It also sounds like you're looking for a person that's suffering so you can exploit their suffering. Capitalism 102

As bad as it is, the problem is not really that you felt this way. It really is that you don't know how stupid & debased you come across as, for deciding to put this out here.

The poverty mentality in this country is unbearable… We all believe everybody has to be poor before we can employ them. Lol! No! Ok will you employ someone who has no car, no phone and looks poverty striken but didn't meet up your requirements?

"Fire in her belly" AKA hungry and desperate, will work under the most dehumanizing conditions for a crumb of bread.
The audacity to not only nurture this thoughts but to come out brazenly to put them in fine print on social media. Eww.

So she's not supposed to look good because she wants you work for you?!
I'd hate to see how your workers look tbh

Obvious aim. One in which is brought by an inferiority complex. Even worrying, is that fact that it appears she may not have considered the corper for an interview. At least talk to her, get to know her.

This thread is just proof of how Nigerians love to romanticize suffering. If you're not suffering then you're not a serious person.

You’re funny. You just judged her based on looks and didn’t even try her (something I’m sure you wouldn’t like to be done to you). I’ve got a friend who’s got access to a multimillion inheritance but she still grinds like the rest of us.

If your tweet included something about a poor attitude or a failed assignment/test that would have made sense.
But this tweet is nothing but Nonsense!

So next time one should 'look poor' because once you look poor it means you're qualified for a role and it means you're a hard worker, someone who uses an iPhone, owns an iWatch and a tinted Lexus has 'no fire in their belly' Low Esteem issues.

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