Actress Mercy Aigbe has received more applications than she ever thought of when she indicated interest in hiring a personal assistant. According to her, more than a thousand applications are already on her portal.
Her words: “Goodmorning Fam, Application is closed cos we got over 1,000 applications just yesterday, way above our limit …..cos it’s just 1 person we are looking for, to all dose who sent their applications thank u and shortlisted candidates will be contacted soon …..Y’all have a fruitful day and may the Lord keep blessing the works of our hands IJN ….. P.s for those sending their applications to my email pls it’s supposed to be done on line, but unfortunately it’s now closed….thanks .”
Although she was slammed for posting such advert, that with all the job description and qualifications — no specific time closure, graduate, female and single aged between 22 and 29, computer literate and social media inclined — no one will do the job.
Her critics also said she was wicked to have assumed N70,000 – N100,000 is appropriate for a female graduate within that age range who will have to sacrifice her love life for a job. But there we are, thousands have applied already just in one day!
But really is N70, 000 excluding allowances too small for a PA?
