SharpHire’s Odunayo Eweniyi holds a First Class Computer Engineering degree from Covenant University. She’s been a tech founder for about 3 years, co-founding PushCV right out of school. She talks to Joy Ehonwa about her love for technology, and making a difference, in this 5-minute interview.

CN: How would you describe the work you do?

I’ve always been centred on Education and Employment as two sectors I’d love to work in. So I describe what I do as a step in making it right in those sectors, especially employment. SharpHire creates and launches products that are targeted towards the labour market and making things easier for the people in that bracket.

CN: What inspired you to go into this line of work?

The need to make a change. It may sound cliché but I think everyone needs to work in the place where they will make the most impact. So when I was asked to join the SharpHire team, there was no question what my answer would be.

CN: You’re part of the team behind,,,, and; how would you describe, in one sentence each, what you’ve found most exciting about working on each of these? Learning exactly how much people wanted to save money.

PushCV: All the times when people come back to say thank you for helping to place them in employment.

FrontDESK: The thought of helping everyone bring their business online. Making remote work mainstream. Handing power back to the women. Your house needs to be clean. You do not necessarily need to be the one to clean it. Food! Food is always exciting!

CN: What 3 decisions are you most proud of in your life?

The first is making the choice to live my life the way I wanted. The second is the decision that led to SharpHire Global Limited. And the third will be all of the decisions (however questionable) I’ve made since SharpHire started rolled into one.

CN: Which book(s) are you reading now?

  1. Doomed to Repeat by Bill Fawcett
  2. Awkward Black Girl by Issa Rae
  3. Patterns of Personality Judgement by Rudolf Cohen

CN: What are your favourite quotes?

“To Each His Own.” I don’t know who said that first but it helps me recognize the freedom of choice for everyone to make their own decisions. Asides that, I don’t use quotes very much.
