A Corps member recently lost a Place of Primary Assignment (PPA) because she looked rich. A twitter user identified as @girllikeher who happens to be the Employer, posted on twitter explaining how she denied a Corps member from serving in her organization beacuse she appeared to be rich.
How a Corper’s ’richness’ hindered her from getting employed today… So I am looking for a youth Corper to fill specific roles in my department. What I am on the lookout for in an individual is: teachability, flexiblity and importantly a person with fire in their bellies…
Looking at her, I was in doubt she was a struggling Corper. She looked like she needed a place to sign attendance at, every month, not necessarily the stipend she would be paid. She had an iPhone and a shiny Apple wristwatch sitting pretty on her wrist.
First thought that crossed my mind was ’probably techy… The next thought was ”this one don chop belleful, will she be willing go grind”… I was quite undecided about her, to be honest…
After the interview I looked through the window and saw the latest Lexus with tinted glasses and covered number plates drive into the compound to pick her up… I made up my mind there and then, this Corper no go hear word
The tweet has attracted different reactions on social medial. Some folks feel the employee is simply jealous, while others commented that the Corps member didn't show humilty. As someone who is looking for a job shouldn't look extravagant. What's your take on this?
