Ever had a terrible experience during the job seeking period? Well a number of youth are going through similar cases.
A motivational speaker/ coach denies job seeker an opportunity for making a request;
Netizens online have blasted a middle aged woman who locked a youth out of a job opportunity for requesting if he/she could catch the interview later.
The lady claims that the job seeker was at a loss since he said he was busy and despite his the request for a later date, he/she still lost the opportunity.
Netizens however disagreed with her reasoning saying that there was need for her as an employer to consider that request.
With the rate of youth unemployment being high, there is need for graduates to be educated on how to take a hold of any opportunity that comes their way.
There is also need for them to be informed about the do’s and don’ts of their job hunting.
Many graduates mess up on their first interviews for several reasons however people think that this scenario required a second chance and some form of negotiation.
A number of online users have shared that availability for an interview should be negotiable depending on the circumstances.
What are your thoughts on this?Do you think that this is one of the reasons why the youth miss out on employment
Called one unemployed graduate for an interview on Thur and his response was, “I am busy, can I come next week Monday?” ? Entitlement on steroids. Sorry mate, your loss. With such high youth unemployment, an interview is now a treasure not to be taken lightly.#Muchisrequired

Have a look at the reactions.
I agree!! Nothing wrong with negotiating over availability either… someone who gives an option for another timing is someone who is committed to attend the interview

She has no business sitting in the Presidential Youth Committee either. People like her are the reason youth are denied opportunities.

you don’t know the circumstances, instead you come jump on here for retweets . He’s a graduate and couldn’t have known how to give a better response as to why he couldn’t make it at the set date . In my opinion he’s better off than to have a boss with such a horrible mindset .

Seriously. For all she knows, he could possibly even have another interview on that note exact day!
Stop expecting to be treated like a god just because you're offering work.
