He said; "My resumption time was 7.30am and once it was 7.45am the gates where locked, lateness was a grievous offence but my experience at WAVE had already taught me how to manage my time properly". He was also delighted to have been exposed to a lot of things concerning the hospitality practice through his job shadow experience.
Kayode is currently a manager at Simbatoro Homes&Apartments, where he oversees the daily activities in several apartments and makes sure everything runs smoothly.
