My Xmas wish is that you help me get a below-the-line (BTL) marketing
job. I believe this wishing part of your programme was started because
of me, if not how else would I ask for this.
Here is my story in brief:
My name is Chidi, I’m married to a lovely lady with 2 beautiful
daughters. I resigned as the operations manager from the marketing
agency I worked with in 2011 to start my own but its hasn’t been easy
getting any job, I have gone to lots of companies and in most cases
they don’t even let me get pass the reception.
While I was working I managed accounts of theses companies: Guinness
Nigeria, Nokia, Bajaj auto, Unilever. I have the required experience
to run any type of direct marketing or promotional activity.
Since 2011 I have been trying to get a job but it hasn’t been possible
mainly because of the Nigerian system where one has to know someone
who knows someone, I’m sure you know how it goes. Late 2011 I invested
my little savings in some business so that I can take care of my
family while I was chasing the marketing stuff, but everything went
under, now we are basically living on charity and the little I make
from working part time for an agency as a supervisor.
The companies I have gone to include but not limited to: Johnson wax,
promasidor, pz, Honeywell, P & G, chewalrams, international breweries,
consolidated breweries, Nigerian breweries benin etc. I have spent a
lot following up but till date non has yielded any result. You wont
believe that one of the companies mentioned above gave a job to
someone who didn’t have the experience because he knows the marketing
director and he asked me to do the job for him, I managed the activity
from start to finish, I send the weekly reports to him and he sends to
them, funny, right.
I could go on and on but it’s supposed to be brief.
All I really want is an opportunity to proof myself.
I can be reached either through this email address or 07084461929.
Thanks and God bless.
