A lady identified by her Twitter handle as @OgolomaOluchi has lamented how she was denied a job simply because she’s short.
The lady who narrated the stress she went through just to be at the venue of the interview on time which was later in vain expressed her disappointment in the Nigerian system.
Sharing her story, she wrote:
“I got a message yesterday to come for an interview today in a big fancy hotel in VI. Woke up by 6, had my shower did makeup. Left on time to beat up with lekki traffic. Still on a bus when the rain started got down from the bus rain beats me,I told myself I must make it to the interview today. Then again the rain was terrible I had to book uber, on getting to the venue met some other people waiting. Luckily for me it was 25 minutes to the interview.
The HR and interviewer came in called one after the other, my heart was beating fast hoping I would be selected for this great job. Finally it was my turn to be interviewed only for the interviewer to tell me I’m too short to work for the company that they can’t take me because of my height. My God! I was so sad. All the Time, effort, hopes was just in vain. 🥺😭
I’m so ashamed of my country Nigeria. If we don’t help others grow how do we grow🤷♀️. That why most girl instead of them working they rather prefer doing prostitution because jobs don’t favour them.Na short I short I no kill person 😭.”
