A Job Seeker’s Diary on Friday, 28th May

I finally get a call! The sweet voiced lady on the other side, claiming to be calling from Price Water House Coopers, asks whether I’m still interested in their job. My heart is pounding as I cannot believe what I am hearing. She asks the class of a degree that I have, whether I have anything I’m currently doing.

I get curios when she asks very personal questions and I tell her that from my Human Resource lessons I was told such questions are unethical, but she insists its company policy.

Mr. Bernard Sabiti

After telling her of how I am single, born-again and searching, she bursts out into laughter, telling me she is Rachael, an old pal and former course mate now working with one of the telecom giants.  She tells me that she wanted to say “hi” in a funny way. I cut her off after explaining to her how I will break her neck the next time I meet her.

*** End of Mr. Bernard Sabiti’s Real Life Experiences Diary Entry ***

With the permission of Mr. Bernard Sabiti, we are serializing and publishing selected episodes from his column “A Job Seeker’s Diary” prior first published in a national newspaper. Whereas, Mr. Sabiti is now a very successful consultant, we decided to share and to publish episodes from his column on our website because they are directly relevant to the stakeholders of our project: “Challenging Categories: Educated Unemployed Youth as Institutional Innovators in Rural Uganda;”  And they speaks directly to the young adults whom we are mentoring under our project: “Mentoring Young Adults into Innovators Against Poverty.” Mr. Sabiti’s life story, as a whole, is the more relevant to us, since there seems to be nothing he has not done, innovating to better his lot and to contribute to the bettering of life for his wider communities. Read more here.
