Nigerian lady goes for job aptitude test she wasn’t invited for and gets hired

Fortune has smiled on an unemployed Nigerian lady who took a daring leap of faith by attending a job aptitude test even though she wasn’t invited.

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.

Uche said the lady identified as Maryam Adeleke revealed to her that she was invited for a job aptitude test and she disclosed the venue, date and time.

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:

”A lot has happened to me between August-November and I’m nothing short of grateful to God.

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.

Long story short, a good friend and fellow cabin crew aspirant I met here on LinkedIn who had also applied for the same role with Dana told me that she had been invited for their aptitude test, I was very happy for her but at the same time sad that I wasn’t called. She was kind enough to tell me the date of the test and where it will take place (funny enough I was going to the airport that same day to submit my CV to other airlines).

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”
