THE LITTLE BIG THINGS RECRUITERS ASSESS

What Do Recruiters Look Out For Recruiters complain day after day on how there is a shortage of skilled manpower in the labor market. I could interview 15 different ‘qualified’ candidates for a role and be amazed at how short they fall from the mark. The universities churn out graduate and postgraduate students every year, yet recruiters search endlessly for the right candidate; that square peg to fit the square hole.  You have an interview that you are qualified to the teeth for. You’ve memorized all the jargon you’ve been told recruiters want to hear. You have donned the right outfit to appeal to the widest range of personalities. After the interview you could swear that you nailed it, yet you never got called for a second interview. Let me give us an idea of some subtle things recruiters assess, but would never be caught dead stating as a reason for not selecting you. Ideas Your breath: If you have an interview, please do not eat spicy food or onions. Even if you are too nervous to eat, kindly have a mint before you go in. Bad breath is a major turn off for recruiters. Your smell: If you have ...

7 Mistakes Every Job Seeker Should Avoid During an Interview- Tokunbo Fasoro

In the course of interviewing graduates and young people over the years, I have discerned quite a number of things they say/do that serve as red flags during these interviews; a lot of candidates have consequently, lost many job offers. Often times it’s difficult to give the much needed feedback due to reasons such as time constraints and a disinclination to cause offense. Hence, the decision to put this out for youngjob seekers to read, so they canavoid such mistakes: Bad Introduction- From the question ‘Tell me about yourself’, we expect you to sell yourself to us in a few words; talk about yourself and your achievements.Many a time, I can tell who is in and who is probably going to lose it just from the response to this question. In a nut shell, if your first 30 seconds is not great, it has an impact on the rest of the interview. C.V and linked in profile must match with personality- Lots of times, some candidates write half-truths or outright lies. Some lie about their ages, especially if the position has an age limit, forgetting that there would definitely be discrepancies between the claimed age and their primary and secondary ...

The Hilarious Camp Story of Opeyemi Durowaiye

Opeyemi Durowaiye shares her NYSC camp story with us and we hope you all learn from her interesting experience as a corp member especially the 2016 Batch B Stream 1 corp members who will be going to camp very soon. Her Story… First, I must say DO NOT take 30 passports or make 20 photocopies….. Please* DO NOT! *and so I begin. Greetings everyone – especially prospective corps members. I was in your shoes in April, getting ready for camp and all; oh, and to serve my country #important. I was disappointed on two counts though; first I didn’t get posted to the East as I wanted-yeah, you heard right. I wasn’t interested in getting posted to Lagos or its environs and I still got Ogun state but the experience has been good! Then secondly, I had to go in the second stream- and to think I had my bags ready for camp since April 28th! (Don’t judge me!). But camping later afforded me good advice from my friends who went ahead, and a bit of travel. Why this checklist? Before camp, trust me, I checked out blogs and articles about orientation camp and all. They all made sense oh- ...

A Simple Formula for Answering the Almighty Question : Tell Me About Yourself!

So you finally landed an interview and the first question thrown at you by your interviewer is “So, tell me about yourself.”? What seems like such a simple question can really make you sweat, especially in an interview. What, exactly, should you share — not just to build rapport, but to show that you’re the perfect fit for the job? Fear not, job seekers: There’s a super-simple formula that will help you answer this question with ease. How to Answer “Tell Me About Yourself” So, the first question you’re probably going to get in an interview is, “Tell me about yourself.” Now, this is not an invitation to recite your entire life story or even to go bullet by bullet through your resume. Instead, it’s probably your first and best chance to pitch the HR Manager on why you’re the right one for the job. A formula we really like to recommend is called the Present-Past-Future formula. So, first you start with the present—where you are right now. Then, go into the past—a little bit about the experiences you’ve had and the skills you gained at the previous position. Finally, finish with the future—why you are really excited for this ...

No experience? How to find a job

Finding a job with no experience in an economy that is already struggling can seem like a truly daunting task. Don’t get discouraged just because you lack professional experience – there are many things that you can do to increase your employability. Become a volunteer One way to gain experience in a field is to seek out a volunteer position. Many companies do not post volunteer positions online so be sure to ask a specific organisation if they have any volunteer positions available. Even if it is difficult to volunteer in your specific field, volunteer anywhere so you can show that you have been productive. A great volunteer can often lead to the offer of a paid position. Alter your CV Many people wrongly assume that a CV has to only be about work experience. A CV can be functional and can instead highlight skills, education and/or training. Work on a CV that shows your skills and abilities rather than one that simply has a limited work history. Tailor each CV to the job you are seeking. Network, network, network Networking is arguably the most important way to find a job when you have no work experience. Make connections through ...

6 Reasons you should get an education via E learning

In the world today, it is no longer news that there is a gap between the usual classroom learning and what learners actually want; if given a choice, learners would prefer mobile, relevant, personalized and self-paced content at a point of need. Whilst many want learning at a point of need, many learn in evenings and at weekends and on the way to or from work. Ask yourself, as we race into the 21st century: do you have what it takes to compete and excel in the new economy? Forward thinking organizations and individuals around the world are jumping on the e-learning bandwagon through certificate courses and certification programmes. Don’t be left behind because you lack the skills and knowledge necessary to keep up. Millions of learners and hundreds of thousands of organizations have taken steps towards their dreams through various e-learning pathways. Don’t be left out in the new dispensation. Many have asked us to provide cogent and convincing reasons why they should invest in online learning programmes. Here is our expert opinion on the value of e learning drawn from our years of experience in the sector. The following are the clear evidence of what eLearning brings when compared to the ...
