ItyIta:
Yes, I have been invited for the 3rd stage. I was sent a mail on Friday to confirm it. I just need tips to scale through this 3rd stage. Thanks and God bless.
Congrats.
Here's what I can remember from last year.

Stage 3: Interview at MTN office: Panel of Senior Managers ( 30 mins to 1 hour)

1. Tell us about yourself
2. What do you know about MTN (Read about: History of MTN Nigeria, Mission, Vision, Core Values, Vital behaviors, Major projects and mile stones, if possible read through the company’s financial performance for 2017) This link should help - http://www.mtnonline.com/about-mtn/corporate-information
Note: This question is your first chance to really impress.
3. What has made Facebook , Google and Apple successful ?
4. If you became CEO what would you invest in ?
5. What factors would you consider in starting a new business ?
6. How do you propose Innoso motors increase sales (My opinion here : Last year “Buy Nigeria to grow Nigeria” was trending and Innoso motors was at the center of this so my advice is to stay current becos they could pick a question from any recent happening)
7. How does MTN make money (Read about Its Products and services from the website)
8. Which of the MTN core values have you exhibited? ( Tip: Use STAR model in giving your response)
9. What is your salary expectation
10. What product should mtn invest in now
11. Tell us your greatest achievement
12. What factors do you think govern the choice between two products by consumers
13. Any questions for the panel (Ask smart questions)

Note: Dress well for the interview, Feel relaxed it's gonna be a friendly panel.

Last year MTN provided transportation refund and Hotel accommodation for those coming from outside Lagos.

I dropped out after this stage last year. The tips here are from those who made it in. Prepare well and Goodluck

Recently, the telecom sector has experienced a general decline in pay. Experienced staff recently recruited were offered between 140-180

I don't see how a GT will earn 4.9m. I stand to be corrected though

4.9 million is too small abeg, for an experienced hire

I also got an invite but what I have seen here is so discouraging. How can they just take 4 or 6 people? The competition will be really high and touch

Re: MTN Graduate Development Programme Aptitude Test Invite by sifo: 10:14pm On Feb 08, 2018
All the info you need to prepare for your MTN assessment center. This post is based on the 2016 recruitment so topics would have changed but format most likely still same . Goodluck people
badman924:


Hello, i was part of the recruitment process last yr but didn't get the offer. Here's what I can remember from the assessment center last yr:

The assessment center has 6 activities:

1. Group Discussion- The group discussion topic was something around: A telecoms company was about to implement a verification system and other products. The challenges with this implementation where: 1. Traditional customers may not buy into the new idea 2. Cost of hiring expatriates to implement new products 3. Struggle with corrupt government officials. We had 30 mins to discuss then put together our answers on a sheet.

Second part of the case study required a decision to be made on whether to acquire a company that started as part of the group but broke out and is now experiencing challenges due to poor administration and bear market conditions. Its major market is East Africa and it has built up a lot of debt which would be inherited by whoever acquires it.
Task: Identify the problems and solutions, make a decision after Identifying the advantages and disadvantages of each scenario.

You have to be very conscious of time here and also contribute during the discussion, try to take a responsibility in the group either as Time keeper, Scribe, Preparing the final answer sheet or maybe group leader. Respect everyone's opinion and be audible wen u talk.

2. Presentation: 10 minutes presentation on one of three topics sent a day to the assessment center. Topics for last yr: Significance of customer satisfaction on business growth, Importance of negotiation skills in closing sales, Impact of Telecommunication on economic growth.

Tips: Your name, date and topic should be on the title slide, keep to time while presenting, use a case study preferably Nigeria and related to MTN, have references for everything you mention, use more of data/facts and less of stories if possible, put a touch of yellow in your slides, plain background is always the best.Be confident in your presentation, the panel would try to prove some of your points to be wrong and test your confidence. Last yr the topics changed on each day of the assessment center so i wont advice you practicing with the ones i've listed here.

3. Panel Interview:
• Tell us about your self
• Your strengths
• Tell us of a time you showed integrity
• Tell us of a time you showed innovation
• What are MTN’s core values ----- (Very important, Pls do your research about MTN and its core values)
• How do your qualification fit the job role
• Any questions for us? (Ask a smart question oh)

4. Essay: The essay was computer based and we had about 45 mins (not sure of the time): We had three topics to choose one to write about. Topics – Benefits of team building in the work environment, Socio-psychological impacts of redundancy , can't remember the last one.

5. PSENSE: Test on Microsoft Word, Excel, Power point, Outlook. MS office 2010, practical computer simulation tests where you have a document to edit for each software and you are given instructions on what operation to perform. 25 questions for 15 mins for each of them. Outlook allows you only three clicks per questions while other software’s allow you multiple clicks. Time is very important (Note: The test on Outlook was the hardest for me. So practice using outlook well)

6. E-basket: consist of four stages and is estimated to be completed within 60 minutes, although it is not timed, time of completion is factored in deciding final score. You will be required to respond to mails and assists colleagues at work in a computer based avatar like simulated environment. Some of the mails require calculations to arrive at your answers and require you to take notes as contents of the mails will be required to make decisions later on. The other stages are personality and decision making questionnaire and making a summary of office complaints from three mails and picking out the most common complaints then composing a mail 100 – 800 words long.

Assessment center was a full day, started around 9 am and ended by 5pm on my day. They provided breakfast and lunch tho. Good luck with the assessment center, I hope this helps. (NB: Pls ignore any typographical errors in this write-up).

Thanks much boss. This time around, we are required to prepare power point presentation of the role we are applying for and send it to them via email on or before the assessment centre day.
Re: MTN Graduate Development Programme Aptitude Test Invite by sifo: 8:32am On Feb 09, 2018
Pick a topic relevant to the role and find a way to make it related to MTN or Telecommunications. Good luck
