5 Lessons Unemployed Nigerians Should Learn From The Girl Killed While Looking For A Job

Nigeria has an alarmingly high unemployment rate. Many young people today engage in criminal activity in order to make money, but there are still those who are looking for a legitimate career. There have been several accounts of people receiving false interview messages from kidnappers, ritualists, or serial killers posing as employers while looking for work. 

Iniubong Umoren, a woman who went missing while job-hunting in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, was declared dead only a few hours ago.

Prior to her death, she had announced she was looking for a job on the 27th of April 2021.

Below are lessons we should learn from her death.

1. If you have to meet someone new, make sure that someone knows where you're going and who you're meeting. Leave a message with a family member or friend, explaining where you're going and, if possible, the name of the person you'll be meeting, as well as any other details you have. 

2. If a job offers a lot of money for very little work, it could be a scammer or an abductor looking for your personal information. It might also be a serial killer or a ritualist. 

3. If you receive an unexpected call or message inviting you to come in for a job interview without first submitting your resume to the company, make sure you ask questions. It might be a scam if the employer can't answer your questions or says things like "Your friend suggested you just come for our interview by 9am." 

4. Is there a trustworthy website or expert reference for the company? Is the job you're looking for listed on their main career page as well? Find out what people have to say about the business by asking around. 

5. Meet in a public place, let someone know where you're going, and bring your phone in case something goes wrong. Have faith in your intuition. If a work sounds too good to be true, it is most likely a scam.
