Fate had other plans for this beautiful Nigerian lady, identified simply as Bukola, as she was among 400 staff of one of the leading e-commerce platforms, Konga, who were relieved of their jobs few days before December.
“Just here thinking of how turnt I’ll be in Dec. Honestly think I deserve it. Lol I know I’ll spend the money I don’t have but we will save in 2018”, Bukola had tweeted.
Well, not discouraged by her sudden sack, she took to her Twitter page last Sunday, tweeted about losing her job and pleaded for job referrals from her followers.
“I was among the 400+ staff that got laid off at Konga last week”
“If you are in need of a customer service representative, social media analyst to be precise, someone who’s efficient in handling customers’ queries? I’m the right one for you. Pleaseee retweet”.
Bukola couldn’t have envisaged the level of response she got as her tweet went viral within a space of 24 hours getting almost 5,000 re-tweets, 99 comments/responses and 1,000 favorites.
Call it the power of social media and you won’t be far from the truth!
