Nigerian man narrates how he landed managerial job after carrying a stranger’s bag not knowing he was a CEO

A Nigerian man has shared a testimony about why it pays to be courteous to people no matter their appearance or the situation.

Praise Ohanwe took to his LinkedIn page to narrate how he got a managerial job in 2019 without an interview, all thanks to simple courtesy.

The young man who had submitted several job applications at that time was relieved to be called up for an interview at a time he desperately needed a means of gaining a livelihood.

For undisclosed reasons, Praise arrived at the interview venue a bit late and was making his way into the firm from the parking lot when he caught sight of a man who was also shuffling to the door.

After waiting for close to hours, he was called in for his interview. To his greatest surprise, the man he had helped at the parking lot owned the company. Without wasting time, the man congratulated him and offered the job seeker a spot in his managerial staff.

Read his writeup;

”𝗛𝗢𝗪 𝗔 𝗦𝗜𝗠𝗣𝗟𝗘 𝗔𝗖𝗧 𝗢𝗙 𝗖𝗢𝗨𝗥𝗧𝗘𝗦𝗬 𝗚𝗢𝗧 𝗠𝗘 𝗔 𝗝𝗢𝗕 𝗪𝗜𝗧𝗛𝗢𝗨𝗧 𝗔𝗡 𝗜𝗡𝗧𝗘𝗥𝗩𝗜𝗘𝗪 ​

I recently came upon a post by Brigette Hyacinth where she was encouraging #jobseekers to keep pushing. This reminded me of a profound experience I once had on my job seeking journey, and I thought to share.

The year was 2019 and I desperately needed a job. ​

After submitting many applications, I was called for an #interview. However, on the day of my interview, I was a bit late. ​

As soon as I arrived the firm, my first test for the day began. ​

As I made my way across the parking lot, my attention was drawn to this man who was also shuffling to the doors. ​

He didn’t look impressive in his baggy trousers, brown shirt, and black sandals.

I greeted him as I walked past and after responding, he asked me to hold his bag since we were moving in the same direction. ​

Already running late for my interview, I had a good mind to brush him off.

On a second thought, I went out of my way to carry his bag and help him across the parking lot. ​

We parted ways when he entered from a different door.

When I got into the reception, my heart fell because more than 25 people were waiting to be interviewed. ​
​​
𝗠𝗬 𝗦𝗛𝗢𝗖𝗞𝗘𝗥 ​

About 1½ hours later, I was called in. As I shut the door behind me, the Manager introduced herself and another man as the Chairman. ​

Imagine the shock on my face when I recognized the same man I had helped across the parking lot. ​

Turns out he was the owner of the firm and the entire property.

After looking at me for a while, he congratulated me and offered me a spot as part of the Managerial staff.
​​
What should have been an interview was automatically translated into a free mentorship session, as he spoke to me from the depths of his heart. ​

I worked with them over the next few months during which I realized that the man is wealthy/influential, with properties and investments scattered across Nigeria and South Africa. ​

Now, the million-dollar question is, “what if I had snubbed him in the parking lot that afternoon?”​
​​
𝗜𝗡 𝗦𝗨𝗠𝗠𝗔𝗥𝗬 ​

Today, I want to bring one thing to your remembrance. ​

This Christmas (and subsequently), please train yourself to be courteous. ​ ​

I know you don’t take rubbish, but if you don’t reassess how you interact with people…​

Oh well, best wishes! ​

God may release the answers to your prayers through people this season. Some of them may not look impressive and worthy of honor. ​​

But for the sake of wisdom, please activate your brain-to-mouth filter. ​

So you don’t end the year asking God what you did wrong again. ​

Mine was a job. Yours could be anything. ​

​My earnest prayer for you today is that you will be alert when the answers to your prayers come. ​

May you not lose major breakthroughs because of tiny nasty habits. ​

Can I get an “amen?”
