Ofejiro Atakele who is said to be first degree graduate in Mass Communication from Babcock University in 2015 also has a master’s degree from the Pan-Atlantic University in 2017, was seen carrying a placard in Effurun, Warri, Delta State recently in search of a job.
Her photo had went viral on social media and she said she did it out of frustration of wanting to get a job so she could stop depending on her mother who has been supporting her financially.
Her efforts yielded results as she attended a job interview in Lagos which wanted to pay her 60,000 Naira but she declined it because her expenses would surpass the money.
She also said she has attended a job interview in Dubai but noted that her skin color played a role in her not getting the job.
She received a total of 10 emails from the US and UK asking for her CV. She hopes to get a job so she would be able to open a fashion school having learned the skill during the lock down.
