It's a sad coincidence no one from this thread was called. Or maybe the successful candidates are sworn to silence.

For those that didn't make the cut like me, let's just console ourselves with the hope that something better lies ahead of us.

I'm about to unfollow the thread in 5,4,3,....Bows out. It's been a pleasure.

Well, what can i say to encourage those of you who where not called to join us.
Although i wished to see some of you on board this ship i boarded years ago, life process didn't make that happen.
My sincere encouragement is that
1. Those who haven't done masters, kindly pursue that. Not because of job search only but for personal development.
2. Look forward to setting up something for yourself no matter how small, its easier when you are still searching for job than when you are employed. Trust me on this (and i'm personally willing to support this)
3. Don't loose hope in the employment system in this country, I know a lot of people across many multinationals who after getting frustrated looking for jobs eventually got jobs without knowing anybody but GOD.

Take care

For those who have been called, we shall see in class very soon.

so why call it a graduate TRAINEE position and not an Experienced hire in the 1st place?

Its graduate trainee, but in this case, its required that you are a graduate who is willing to work in a production environment. A first class can be good theoretically but may not turn out to be vocationally exceptional (for a production setup like FMN). Meanwhile a 2.2 who is vocationally exceptional may make the cut.
You will be completely trained to be suitable for the job so its not the first class that matters (although its an advantage). So you need your academic standard and vocational ability.

Because they do not have the funds for an experienced hire. I noticed something was amiss in the interview when nearly all the questions I was being asked where, "tell us of your past blablabla la..." Sadly for me I only had IT experience and maybe that wasn't enough for them.

Although I furnished answers to all the asked questions, I now feel my lack of working experience in this field may have played against me during their final decision making. This is only a conjuncture though.

Spot on! My thoughts exactly. Seems a bit unfair to fresh graduates and people without jobs, but they are only doing what's best for their company.

Friend, for a graduate trainee role here, you will be adequately trained. Your lack of working experience not necessarily played against you rather you didn't convince the interviewers that you will be a better person on this role than the selected ones (interviewers opinion though).

A very convenient stereotypical answer. I understand your view and I have no grudge against them just my thoughts though.

Like I said, it's only a conjecture

We do see experience as something you can only get from companies. I know of fresh graduates with vast experience in one thing or the other just because they made themselves open to leadership roles, projects and teamwork back as an undergraduate. Therefore they make better candidates in job hunt.
My advice is always be busy, even if it's a volunteer role, you never know where it will come handy.
Trust me there were more than enough smart people in this recruitment process, so they had a wide range of talents to choose from.
As regards FIRST CLASS , lol, no be by that, we should all know that by now.
The process wasn't hijacked as I know of 2 Friends who knew no one before given the offer.
You might think you are convincing but the panel was not convinced.
My advice is to reflect, learn and be better, great opportunities ahead.
To my friend opening a new milk producing plant, great, wish us all the very best

It was not hijacked, i know someone who didnt know anyone but was called... I only feel the interview should have been handled by just a team(it would have taken longer time) instead of 4 different team. The result is not even if u ask me. Team A may give a candidate 100 meanwhile team B may have scored that candidate 95. my thoughts tho.
