- A young lady, Mary Allen, is seeking an end to her joblessness as she goes on a hunt to become a taxi driver
- The only thing stopping her presently is the unavailability of a vehicle, a situation Mary is working on solving
- Many people who were inspired by her determination to succeed sent in contacts of those who could be of help
A lady, Mary Allen, has taken her job-hunting frustration to LinkedIn where she narrated how she has been without employment for nine months.
Mary who lives in Port Harcourt said that all the money she had saved up is fast running out as there are no sources of income.
The lady disclosed that at a point in those months, she told herself that if nothing turns up, she will go into driving for a taxi-hailing service.
Mary added that she would excel in that as she is already a good driver with an amazing customer service experience.
The lady, therefore, called for help, asking people to connect her with any hire purchase dealership that could give a car on an installment payment plan.
The determined Nigerian even said she does not mind relocating if she gets a car in another state. Mary ended her post with:
“After all, the only way after hitting rock bottom is going upward.”
Below are some of the reactions to her post:

"Mary Allen, I will encourage you to please find a skill you are passionate about and develop it and turn it into a service to render and earn from it. I have being driving on bolt and trust me from experience it hasn't been easy, if the car is yours, its way better but hire purchase, no no!"

Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported on a young man who went the extra mile to land a job.
Ayanda Mbatha is a mechanical engineering technician who was retrenched in May 2020 due to the Covid-19 lockdown. Instead of losing hope, Mbatha, 26, decided to take his battle to the streets. He printed out CVs and made a sign that summed up his qualifications. Mbatha made his way to the Katherine and West Street traffic lights to ask South Africans for help.
However, he was chased away by security guards. The engineer then went to the Hyde Park Corner traffic light intersection and was overwhelmed with support.
