who knows you

i couldn't help LAFIN out too loud this afternoon...

a friend is seeking appointment...just done (almost) with his national service and is going job-hunting...

today he came back from an interview and says it wasn't easy...as usual...

but what freaked me out was the acknowledgment of the new trend in the scheme of things...

who knows you?
so now it's not just about 'whom you know' as is the acceptable unwritten code but the now and holy 'who knows you?'

the point is you may know someone but does the person you know in an establishment who can pull one or two strings in whatever direction know you too (and the word 'enough' is an added advantage) to pull those strings in your favour?

Pal, it's all a matter of bread and butter!

i'm still laughing...

peace!

Pal (deference to you) is that not why lads and lasses spend their waking life in what they call networking, which is really hunting the pleasures of life?

Man you are damn right. I met a man at GES during my research. I knew him before then; but, when i drew his attention, it took the world to refresh his cobwebbed memory.
But one advice: Tell your friend to create his own job. It's very possible. You need the ideas, the thinking dynamics to start off. Money? That is no issue when starting a business. First clue to him: START WITH FRIENDS WHO CAN HELP, BUT BECAREFUL.

Nana, you know that one...networking for sure...it's all just an interesting world of funnies!

Obed, your advice is spot but man, money is just a problem you know! and for which reason all (i mean many) of the engineers Ghana is producing are rather ending up in banking! loads of Nigeria banks in town to offer them money see?

cheers!
