- A 23-year-old Nigerian man applying for a job of R33 518 salary confidently wrote a one-line CV to beg his prospective employer.
- The man who identified himself as Kenneth did not consider that the job asked for five to six years of experience before applying.
- The HR officer who opened his CV was shocked that a person would be so careless as the applicant was.
A lady who works as an HR expert shared a video that showed the one-line CV an applicant sent for a job that offers an R33 518 monthly salary.
She was surprised when she opened the Word document that he sent, and it was only a line of a funny statement.
Man’s CV gets employer’s attention
The lady (@mostcool_hr) said even though she admired his optimism, no one should ever do what he did. The man’s CV read:
“I’m Kenneth from Nigeria, I can work any work, I’m 23 years old.”
