Manager, businessman and marketer Romeich Major says he was hurt to be referred to as a scammer after news broke that he was charging job applicants $1000 to be considered for one of the many vacant positions on offer, as he revealed that it was indeed free of cost and explain the reasons behind the initial announcement.
“The only thing about this that bothered me is people saying that I am a scammer, for someone that has done so much for the culture and fi the people them what could I be scamming people $1000 [for], am a popular manager, businessman, marketer me income is strong, me nuh need fi a do that to people,” he expressed.
According to Romiech, he is a marketing genius who knows how to manipulate the media, and it was a marketing ploy to seemingly sive through to select persons who were seriously interested in the job offers. In his frank explanation, the promoter also criticizes the Jamaican public for their lack of foresight.
Romeich continued by disclosing that he has multiple avenues of getting an income and doesn’t need to scam to live a good life. Additionally, he outlined that the job fair cost him close to $350,000 to execute.
Following the public backlash on the heels of the announcement, Romeich said a lot of people reached out to him not to bother with the controversial job fair. However, Romeich says he refused the advice because he meant well and wanted to offer opportunities for Jamaicans.
As he concluded his interview with Irie FM, the businessman presented a letter he claimed he had just received from the ministry giving him the green light to proceed with the event. According to Romeich, the letter he sent seeking a permit from the government agency did not have a fee attached to the job fair.
