Getting a job in one of those offices of your dream could be sometime an easy thing to achieve if only you had known some of their job interview ethics and logics.
I have heard quite a number of people lamenting and crying for been rejected at an interview for a job they are well qualified for.
When people get rejected for several job interviews, Nigerians most especially and as usual, are quick to attribute the unpleasant circumstance to one old woman, uncle or friend turned enemy in the village as the cause of their challenges.
Well, not disputing the possibility of someone standing as a hindrance to your progress, have you also check on your errors? have you reviewed your applications? have you tried to coin out a possible reason for the rejections?
Some Company CEOs are impressed and interested not only in your academic qualifications but also in your morality.
Yes, it is true that having a very good curriculum vitae/resume helps in getting you that your dreamed job, but there is more to it these days.
Let’s check some possible facts for job rejections below.
1- The Use Of Email
Most applicants are not careful with the kinds of emails they use on their CV/Resume and while forwarding their job application.
You can not be applying for a job and then your emails read like these; firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org and so on…
Are you serious? Of course not. Help yourself by getting a good email address like; email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com.
Using a combination of your full name or its abbreviation and numbers to make up an email shows some sign of a responsible person you are and not the other way round.
2- Social Media Activities
This sounds strange but true. A lady recently shared her experience that confirms that CEOs uses applicants social media activities to decide whether to take them in or not.
According to her, she applied for a job in a reputable organization and was alongside others called for an interview. Getting to her turn during the interview, she was left abased when the board showed her a video of her twerking on social media.
The company took the video against her as being irresponsible.
You can only imagine that pain, that feeling. However, this must-have taught her a big lesson and never will she be defeated by such a mistake again in her lifetime.
3- Attitude At Interview Centre
It is no longer news that some company boss can go extremely to the point of pretending to be a cleaner or even a gateman in their own organization when they want to employ new staffs.
Some of them will engage you with talks at the entrance of the company or while seating at the reception just before the main interview. Your reaction to their unreasonable questions or gist can either earn you the job or send you out.
You must learn to be sensitive and careful when going for a job interview. Get the ethics and be smart. Else, you will keep getting turned down even with the best qualification and experience.
