A Facebook user identified as Obinna Ebirim, who is a medical doctor and public health enthusiast, has taken to the social networking platform to reveal how he took a part-time job as a kitchen assistant in the United Kingdom just to make some extra money.
The UK-based young man who is also a former Personal Assistant to Commissioner of Health in Imo state, revealed further that he did this despite his qualification because he is yet to practice his profession in the UK as he’s currently doing his Master’s programme at the Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland.Below is what the University of Port-Harcourt graduate shared on his social media page;
“The picture & story they won’t share on #SocialMedia about studying in the U.K.: If you are unqualified to practice your profession here or not on scholarship like me, then you might have to take up a Part time Kitchen Assistant job intermittently, like I did today, to add some extra quid to your pocket.
“The funniest part of the job today, was when the boss in the kitchen consulted me to explain why you don’t take antibiotics for common cold (although it’s not a common cold here like in Nigeria).
“After I moved the stuff on the viral pathology, he asked me, “boy what are you doing here” and I answered, “I’m not licensed to practice medicine in the U.K.”. #DignityOfLabour #Humble #BeingReal..”
