Lady loses job offer over unruly phone conversation with HR officer

A Nigerian lady has just lost a job opportunity over the ‘unruly’ way she responded to a Human Resources officer on the phone.

Victor Ejechi, a social media user, shared the story on Twitter on Monday.

Ejechi was reacting to a tweet by career development expert Dr. Dipo Awojide who advised job seekers to always respond to phone calls professionally and politely.

Awojide had tweeted:

“Looking for a job or a new job? Always answer your phone in a professional and respectful manner. An employer or HR manager might be calling you. Don’t shoot yourself in the foot by being rude or condescending.”

Reacting to the tweet, Ejechi narrated how a lady who applied for a job in his company lost the opportunity of working with the firm despite being the best among other applicants after the interview.

He tweeted:

“I was in my HR’s office when she called a prospective employee. HR: Good afternoon. Please am I speaking with Linda Okafor? Linda: If you no know me why you dey call my number? My HR was disappointed because Linda was the best candidate that qualified for the Job.

“She finally gave the Job to the second-best. I met Linda Okafor during her interview process she was good and sounded really awesome. I tried to example to my HR. Could it be that someone just provoked her or something? My HR said, so if I provoke her tomorrow nko?”
