Considering the high employment rate in the country, some 'ill' motive
individuals might have seen this as an opportunity to swindle
unsuspecting job seekers.
In this post, we will be sharing our experience with supposed "Corinthia Hotel"
received a call from a young lady requesting to post a job for their UK
branch office for job seekers in Nigeria on MyJobMag.com. The default question we asked
was: "If you are recruiting people for a company in UK, why not
target UK audience first?"
This raised a red flag, but we decided to go a step further with the quest. We requested that the job details be sent to us.
When we received the email, we noticed three things:
- The job titles and details were omitted - There was a glaring line: "Monthly Salary: 200,000NGN and above depending on level of work experience." - They are using firstname.lastname@example.org email address
These points raised the following questions: -
For an advertiser, is the job detail not key? How will job seekers know
if they are qualified and know the positions they are even applying
for? or is it an all comers affair? - A minimum of 820 GBP for any
position! Come on, when you get to UK, you will find lots of people
begging for that position; and crying out loud that seems to be the only
selling point the company has! They are not promising any career prospect. - How come a company this big uses @ovi email address?
take the game to the next level, we queried the email address, and in a
bid for them to fix this flaw, they changed it to @outlook.com.
This is the straw that broke the camels back, there was no need playing further. It was obvious something is fishy. As if the above isn't enough, they sent the plethora of job positions:
Conference/Banqueting Operations Manager Food/Beverage Team Members Storekeeper Cashier Banquest Sales Executive Banquest sales Coordinato Bartender Host/Hostess Assistant Manager of front office Receptionist Floor Manager Casino/Bar Supervisor Door
Person Qualified Nurses Housekeeping Service Coordinator Room Attendant Cleaner Security Personnel Reservation Clerk Reservation Manager Computer Operator
