This Betty Irabor Tweet has sparked a Conversation about the Possibilities of getting Scammed as a Job Hunter in Nigeria



Nigerian columnist, philanthropist, writer, publisher, and founder of Genevieve magazine Betty Irabor has ignited a much-needed conversation on Twitter about some of the potential risks when job hunting in Nigeria.

In a tweet, she shared her experience with an unemployed guy who reached out to her. She asked HR to invite him for an interview but he didn’t show up, saying he did not apply for the job (she hadn’t revealed her identity). After finding out the HR invitation was from her, he’s now seeking an interview.

Almost 500 people are currently talking about this on Twitter.

Her tweet has been met with mixed reactions from people in the comment section. Some believe they would have done the same under the circumstance considering the number of false interview invites that job seekers receive in the country.

While some believe the guy seeking employment did not carry out due diligence.

An interesting spin-off of the tweet has been the number of people saying they have had similar experiences and were also cautious because of the possibility of being led on falsely.
