autre violence

ce matin je viens de vivre une autre grave violence qu'on ne peut pas croire ni s’imaginer:Et donc c'est quoi en réalité une offre quelconque affichée par une organisation international au nom de Cordaid en cherchant une secrétaire réceptionniste et la formulaire disait et donnait deux adresses e- mail aux quelles on ne doit envoyer une lettre de motivation pour postuler ce poste mais curieusement les adresses sont refusés à l'internet comme quoi elles sont incorrectes.je viens de me rendre au lieu de l'organisation et vérifier les adresses croyant j'ai mal copier et j'ai constaté qu'en copiant il n'y avait pas aucune erreur.c'est alors que j'ai eu le courage de toquer et de poser la question curieusement la sentinelle m'as dit que je dois déposer en dur;vite vite je suis allée chercher les documents en dur et voilà que le chef de mission avait déjà pris les autres lettres et il n'y avait plus moyen de déposer:un travail vain mais aussi le poste n'est pas déjà attribuer à quelqu'un et on se couvre seulement dans l'affichage du formulaire pour tromper la vigilance:une peine perdue et temps perdu.
voyez combien les violences se répandent et les discriminations continuent comme quelqu'un qui nous a dit qu'il a suivi les gens dire que la formule d'aujourd'hui pour avoir de l'emploi c'est d’écrire" j'ai mon frère au lieu de j'ai l'honneur".
Peut être vous connaissez un chef de mission quelconque qui se trouve en RDC pour lui faire partager ceci et lui demander de revoir la façon de faire les choses car même si on voulait les voir en personne on sera aussi bloquer à la porte.par ce qu'avec cette façon de faire les chances sont limitées à un groupe des personnes

Another Type of Violence

This morning I was subjected to another serious form of violence that is both unbelievable and unimaginable. An international development agency called Cordaid posted a job offer for a receptionist. The form had two e-mail addresses to send a letter of motivation to apply for this position, but both of my e-mails bounced back because the addresses were wrong. I went to the organization's offices to make sure I had copied down the e-mail addresses correctly, which I had. So I mustered my courage, knocked at the door, and asked about it. Curiously, the woman at the front desk told me I had to submit hard copies of the documents. I hurried and returned with hard copies, but the Head of Mission had already left with the other letters and there was no other way to apply. My work was in vain. The position had not been filled and they used the job posting to deceive people, wasting peoples' time and efforts.

See how violence become commonplace and discrimination continues? As one person told us, he heard people say that the way to get jobs is to write, “I have my brother” rather than “I have the honour.”

If you know a Head of Mission in the DRC, maybe you could share this with them and ask them to reevaluate the way they do things. Even if we went to see them in person, they would also stop us at the door. That way opportunities are limited to a certain group of people.

Merci de partager cette

Merci de partager cette histoire avec nous. Depuis que vous l'avez mise sur le site, est-ce que la situation s'est améliorée? Est-ce que Cordaid et autres organismes internationaux sont devenus au courant de votre expérience en postulant pour un emploi?
