A lady I referred for a bank job in the first week of June got a call this morning to resume work at an Uyo branch of the said commercial bank. She was fortunate to be among the few applicants that were shortlisted from among a large pool of graduates who got interviewed for the jobs.<br>No, but she won't be resuming!<br> <br>She finally lost the opportunity because of a phone call.<br>She had received the call in the early hours of today, 10:00am precise. It was from the HR department of the bank.<br><br>But she didn't say "hello".<br><br>Her first remark when she picked was "who's this'"<br><br>Before she got any other reply she added "how did you get my number'"<br><br>The HR person goes "Am I speaking to Miss xxxxxxx'"<br><br>She felt the question is unnecessary! And she gave her final response.<br><br>"Please if you don't want to introduce yourself get out of my phone" that was her final word!<br><br>I got a feedback from the HR by 12noon today and I listened to that conversation. Those kinds of phone calls are always recorded for reference purposes.<br><br>Aunty lost the job because she lacks Phone Conversations Etiquette! I listened to the recorded version of that conversation.<br><br>She lost the job because she believes every unknown male caller is a "chyker".<br><br>You see' After all it's not always because HR people are "despicable" as they have been labeled by Nigerians! <br><br>Why would a Homosapien answer a phone call like this in the year 2020AD'<br><br>Watch out!
