“So we are presently warming up for our POP (we are actually NYSC 2015 Batch ‘B’ Stream II) and so, eyes are all set on the States we are going to spend the remainder of this year.
“A friend of mine told me she got an info from a whatsapp group that there is a vacancy for Corpers serving in Osogbo- that successful candidates might end up being transfered to their headquarters in Lagos next month.
“Well we called the number that was given out. The man on the other end of the phone instructed us to report at 08:00Am today, with our lap top or android device for the screening. Ah, this could be a bank job coming; a perfect chance to remain in the beautiful city of Osogbo after my NYSC.
“BTW Lagos is where I call home. Chai, God is about turning the disappointment of not passing out with Stream I to blessing! There was nothing positive I didn’t think about. Today, I was there one hour before the time set. Fast foward, screening has started.
“The 1st thing was that, they are the foremost multi-level marketers in Nigeria, blah blah blah (I no no where dey put GNLD, Forever, etc). Next was the shocker: they had a job for us, that has a target of registering 2,000 people’s data per week. That we will use our system or android device, and that the working hours is 9am-5pm, mon-fri. I almost fainted when he said the salary was TEN THOUSAND NAIRA monthly! For graduates! Chai!
