Uche Anaekwe showed up for an Aviation job test and finally got a job after several months of looking for one to no avail.
Taking to her LinkedIn page on Monday, the lady revealed that in July, she had packed her bags in readiness to move to Lagos for continuation of her aviation job-hunting.
She connected with a lady she met on social media with who had applied for the same job with her.
According to the lucky lady, she was sad and happy at the same time; happy her friend got an invite and sad that she didn’t get any.
Well, after giving it some thought, Uche decided to go for the job aptitude test despite not being invited and she got the job
Read her write-up:
After I graduated from aviation school in July and got my cabin crew licence I had no idea how I was going to get a job, I didn’t know anyone in the industry who would give me a leg up and although I knew I had all the qualifications, I didn’t know how to go about securing a job except submitting my CV to airlines and hoping for the best.
In the last week of July, I decided to pack my bags and go to lagos, my plan was to go round airlines offices dropping my cv with them and praying that something clicks, mind you I had previously submitted my CV to Dana air when they called for new cabin crew but I didn’t hear back from them and off course I was devastated.
I took a bold and courageous leap of faith, went for an aptitude test I wasn’t invited for, and the rest they say is history.
They say that when opportunity meets preparedness, success is bound to happen.
I’m forever grateful to Maryam Adeleke for being an amazing friend to me even when she didn’t have to. I’m also very thankful to Dana air for using no prejudice and bias to recruit their new crew because I wouldn’t have had a chance otherwise.
I thank God for making my dreams come true and starting me off on this amazing journey, I know there are better things to come and look forward to it”
