My desire has always been to move from grass to grace. On completion of my National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme in 2010/2011 batch B in Enugu, I moved to Benin City in Edo State capital to start work with one architectural firm as a Project Architect. The salary was neither attractive nor good enough for me compared to the work I was doing there.
I never allowed this to weigh me down or discourage me from the profession I love so much and passionate about because I have never consider money as number one in everything I do. I worked with this architectural firm for two and half years to acquire experience to sell myself to another bigger firm. How the Job show through Mr Bimbola Adewole did the magic and moved me up from the ….bottom to the top of my carrier is worthy of commendation. On Monday 20th January, 2014, a friend of mine, Tokunbo, who is based in Lagos listened to the Radio Version of The Jobshow on Top Radio, he heard that anybody who studied architecture should forward their Curriculum Vitae (CV) to firstname.lastname@example.org. I sent my CV to the email address without knowing anybody. On Saturday, 25th January, 2014, at exactly 9am(five days after I had sent my CV), I received a phone call, it was a strange number, I was reluctant to answer the call because I was distressed due to what I was passing through.
Suddenly, something told me to answer the call, this time, the phone rang the second time, Lo and behold! it was Mr Abimbola Adewole from the Jobshow with a deep male voice “am I speaking with Mr Sina Akomolede?” he said and I replied yes you are , he continued “ I have your CV with me right now, I have reviewed it and you are to come for job interview on
Monday, 27th January, 2014″ I told him I was based in Benin, it was there
he asked how I got to know about The Jobshow, I told him through a friend.
On Sunday 26th January 2014, I travelled to Lagos from Benin to attend theinterview.
On Monday 27th January, I called Mr Abimbola Adewole that I was in Lagos; he then gave me his office address and asked that I should come.
I arrived at his office some minutes before the appointed time and when he came, he took me to my prospective boss, Arc. Tunde Oladoja who didthorough job interview for me and asked me to show him the jobs I have done in the past.
After the interview, Arc. Tunde Oladoja, my boss, congratulated me and told me to start work the following week. I resumed work at the firm on Monday, 3rd February, 2014 and I am still working there till date by God’s Grace.
Those who bring sunshine to the life of others cannot keep it tothemselves. I must appreciate Mr Abimbola Adewole for the transformation of my life, he has been adding value to the lives of Nigerian Youths and God Almighty will add value to his life.
I never believe before now that it was possible to get job in this countrywithout knowing one “Big man” somewhere. I have never met Mr ABimbola before. He never collected a dime from mebefore and after securing employment, this is really good of him.
I want to use this medium to also appreciate the person I’ll refer to as my angel, my friend Tokunbo, who listened toThe Jobshow Programme and deem it fit to send the email address which I forwarded my CV to, that information changed my life. God bless you Mr Tokunbo.
