So, folks are out here doing the Lord’s work by schooling Betty Irabor about the state of the job market.
Drama started after the media personality took to her Twitter to subtly shame an unidentified man who she says didn’t show up for an interview she recommended him to.
“A guy reached out to me..2 degrees, jobless, broke. I askd HR to invite him for interv without disclosing my identity. HR sent guy a mail; guy didn’t respond. HR calld him but guy said he didn’t apply for a job & didn’t turn up 4 interview,” she tweeted, adding, “Now he knows it’s me & wants an interv.”

Well, it wasn’t long before folks hopped on the post to let her know about the ongoing scams in the market and why the unnamed man possibly didn’t show up for the interview.
See some of the reactions below:
There are a lot of scammers ma'am. If he did not know that he was recommended by someone, hence the call without an application, his hesitation would be quite understandable… adding as well the likelihood that he literally can't afford what could very well be a fake interview

So I am looking at what she's said and it really doesn't make sense to me. You wanted to help out, good. So why is it hard to give a proper introduction and invitation to follow to the guy. People just love a touch of drama in everything.

Someone I know got an invite for an Interview for a job he didn't apply for, we didn't hear from him for a week after going for the interview. He was kidnapped, robbed, tortured and almost killed. All his savings taken, he was dumped in a remote village. You should have told him.

A person who has searched endlessly for a job, and has fallen victim of several job scams, (probably travelled a good distance only to realize that the job wasn't real) would be very circumspect about unsolicited job interviews.
Kindly give him a Chance Ma.

Please don’t turn your back on him. He must have assumed that the anonymous email and call were part of a scam to get money that he doesn’t have. You might be unearthing a diamond employee. See how he performs at an interview.
