Article By Tokunbo Fasoro Shortly after graduation, I got my first job. I found it difficult blending into workplace, especially when I was just coming from an academic environment, the job was in Lagos Nigeria which was also a new environment for me and I had to learn a whole lot by myself. I took some time to study my environment, and I made a friend who had worked in the organization for about 10 years, I could ask him over 10 questions a day. He was a very pleasant person, always happy to respond and put me through.

How to get a Job through Networking

How to get a job through networking

Article By Tokunbo Fasoro “The job you want may not be advertised at all” I remember at some point in my life, I took sometime time off work to have my baby and was ready to get back to work. One day I was with a neighbor, while chatting I mentioned that I was ready to get back to work. A few days later she called me and asked me if I was interested in a role. She said to me that the position just opened in an organization she was presently handling a project for, that the MD just mentioned it to her.  She immediately told the MD about me and I was scheduled for an interview and that was how I got the job. “The job was never advertised, my network got me the job” Lots of times, many jobs are not advertised. People get jobs through referrals all the time.  You just might know someone that knows someone that can get you that dream job. Social media have connected lots of people together, you definitely will have people in your network you have not seen years, some may just  be acquaintances, old classmates, colleagues etc, there will ...

Sessions were interesting and engaging with our facilitators as participants were already taking personal decisions to implement what they had learnt and use the acquired knowledge positively to equip themselves for a fruitful and more engaging job and career hunt.

How to Discover What You’re Passionate About

How to Discover What You’re Passionate About

A common theme in most writing on goal setting is the need to follow your passions.  Do the things that make you want to get up early in the morning.  There’s only one thing missing: What if you don’t have any passions? I’m sure everyone on this planet has interests.  But that’s not the same thing.  Enjoying playing video games isn’t the same as spending thousands of hours designing your own.  Your passion has to be something you would work exceptionally hard for. So what do you do, if there is nothing you feel that engaged about? The Way to Start Isn’t With a Survey… A lot of career guidance involves measuring your current skills and personality, and then deciding what you would be most suited for.  I don’t like this approach because people are complex.  And any test will ultimately be a gross simplification of what’s important to you and what you like to do. I once heard a story about a wealthy woman who was looking for a husband.  She invested over $20,000 on a series of psychological surveys to match her with potential candidates.  She met individually with the dozen candidates that were her best match.  After ...

The Value You Add, Determines How Important You Are

value

Article By Tokunbo Fasoro This lady, who was just hired as an intern was barely two months in my organisation. One day, I had called her into my office to get some ideas from her, since she studied Social Work in school. As we talked, I shared some thoughts with her and the challenges we were facing at that time. She looked at me and said, ‘Sir, I wish I had a million naira now, I would have given you for this project. First off, do not pay my salary for now.’ Hmm. I was surprised. Shortly after, I received a very SHORT notice to PITCH for an opportunity for Access Bank to partner with Project Revamp Africa in our school projects. The notice was VERY short. By the time, I had knowledge of the ‘competition’, I knew that I had to step up my game.She volunteered to help me out. A day to the presentation, we had to work till very late at night. She lives a bit far from the office. The next day, she went with me for the presentation. We had won the first phase, but had a bigger fish to fry. At that time, we ...
