Founding Story

my wife graduated and no job. i woke up in midnight to think on how to change the rules of seeking for job. so i decided to search for school database and sent sms to them that, i have a fresh graduate that can teach yoruba with good grades from university of Lagos. i sent the sms to 49 schools and 11 schools called her on phone for interview. she resumed work a week after with good salary. since that idea worked, then the jobshow idea can work. This is the story.
