As a job seeker, I recall one weird experience I had at a pentecostal church back in 2010. I had just returned to Nigeria from my Masters course in the UK and was eager to get a job. I had a relative who knew someone in lagos state govt at the time. He was the commissioner of finance for Lagos state govt at the time. It was hard for him to book a meeting with him. So eventually after 2 months, he finally secured a meeting with him and it was gonna be a Sunday after the service. I was Catholic and didn't attend pentecostal services so after I attended the morning Mass, I timed my arrival to coincide with the dismissal of the service. So I waited for him. It took quite sometime to get his attention cos there was a lot of people that wanted his attention after the service. When it got to my turn to see him, I was instantly thrown off by his first question '' Young man do you attend RCCG? 'I told him the truth, Sir I am Catholic and so No I don't , he then said then I either start attending the church or else there is nothing he can do for me. I was so shocked. The man wasn' t even interested in what course I studied, what grades I finished with or my work experience. His primary focus was my place of worship. I told him '' Okay sir Thanks but I can't attend your church because I need a job''. Then he said he was done with me. And as I left I shook my head in disbelief why the country had deteriorated to the point of church politics. I never met the man again or even bothered contacting him again. I just kept applying for jobs and weeks later, I landed a job at Ikoyi. Man nor be God las las. And that would be my first out of the few jobs I held in lagos before I became effectively self employed in 2015. But that experience never left my mind, some people dey mean sha. Moral lesson — As you dey look for connect do that job, don't forget to keep looking, applying, believe In your self, people still get jobs in this country without knowing anyone at all. Just have a positive mind set and keep going. You shall land a job of your dreams. Best of luck!
