Some downsizing was done at your former workplace and unfortunately you were one of those that was let go. You've been out of work for over a year, your job searches and other efforts have so far proven futile. Recently your significant other suggested you take your relationship to the next level and both your families think you should. The only problem is how do you contribute towards building a new home after the wedding, especially with a baby on the way.
Dayo has been your good friend from the university and you both still meet up occasionally. Dayo works for a good firm and earns very well. You've always thought Dayo was lucky to snag such a job. One day you go to drop your CV at an office close to Dayo's and decide to drop in and pay D a visit. You're welcome and you both begin to discuss general issues; current affairs, politics, the economy, celebrity news, football and the current World Cup. You and Dayo have different opinions and you both argue out your points. Dayo's boss comes out of his office.
"What is all the noise about? This is a place of work and not a beer parlour.... But I couldn't help but overhear your discussion. Dayo, your friend has some very interesting views. Here, this is my card, call me and we could have a drink, I'm also an Arsenal fan".
You and Dayo laugh about it and after a few more words, now in hushed tones, you bid Dayo farewell.
Later that weekend Arsenal has a match and just when you were wondering where you could watch your team play you remember Dayo's boss and the complimentary card. Immediately you place the call to him.
"I'm not in town at the moment, I would be back on Sunday evening. By the way, I hear you're looking for a job. I asked Dayo some questions about you and I was impressed with what I heard"
"Oh, yes sir. I'm searching for a job"
"Would you like to come work for me? I could use someone with your versatility, skills and expertise on my team"
"Yes sir! Yes sir! I would love to work for you sir. I'm ready to start whenever you want sir"
"Good. So Tuesday morning resume work at Dayo's desk. I'll hand him his sack letter on Monday".
What do you say next?
What would you do in this situation and why?
