Recently, i have been looking for someone who can assist me at work and help me with the administration work. Admin work can be easy when u get used to it but it take an eternity which i don’t have. Lets cut the crap, i hate doing paper work.
So i have been spreading the word and i got some CVs from friends of friends. Well recently there one thing that hit me when one evening after work while reading the newspaper. i saw one whole page where a big picture of a girl who tragically passed away in an accident. Then it hit me. This girl was recommended by a friend and wanted to work for me.
Recommended by my friend, i asked her to send me a CV on my email. However, unexpectedly i received a WhatsApp message from that specific girl stating her secondary school results and at the bottom asking for the salary amount.
Well, honestly i was pretty pissed off. How can some girl looking for a job and send me her ‘CV’ through WhatsApp. Rest in peace Miss. But i was furious on what as she was taught or if she was even taught that there is a certain ‘protocol’ to follow when you are applying for a job.
The thing is that these days, its tough to find a hard worker. The hard workers are already working. The ones who try a lot less harder are the one available. And honestly, its like they make it obvious that if they will leave as soon as they find something else.
Before being where i am today, i have struggled a lot. a lot of rejections, a lot of ungrateful employers but i wanted to work and be successful. When you look at some people who work and have a lot of time in their hands and get a lot of money to spend. There is no good job that way. To get money and be successful, theres always a need to work hard. The ones you see having a fairly good living, no one knows whats behind this. What they go through at work and until u get into their shoes, u will never know.
My advise to everyone out there recently out of college or uni or is unemployed, please look for opportunities to go to a place where u can learn. Learn by being a trainee learn by getting a hard job but not good salary, learn by looking at others work. Once u get that experience, u will get there.
