Not what you think dear. Most times the grass looks greener on the other side. I actually wanted the job but I have never been desperate for anything in my life. When you show/they sense desperation, they will want to wash you!

Is not everybody that is so desperate for job..As a professional you dont just accept any job interview arrangement that will put stress on you..why would a company send an interview schedule so short like this n espect someone to be their within d stapulated time..when you get there you will understand.

I remember my first interview at Zenith bank. The HR manager and an AGM wanted to intimidate me, telling me they only had vacancy for tellers (with a salary of 70k). 5minutes into the interview, their intercom buzzed and they were told my car was blocking the third interviewer (a GM). I was excused to go and repark and I could see the change in attitude when I got back. Apparently, I brought the same car as their GM and then the table turned. I returned and placed my LG chocolate phone on the table (their fada...they were trying to BUGA me with one cheap Nokia before). In summary, the GM 'upped' my offer and I was offered a Customer Executive role even though I resigned the first day I resumed !

Honestly, if you've seen how the west handle employment, you'll understand where he's coming from.
They value and respect your time. And they dont make it seem like they're doing you a favour.

I had the 3 stages interview for my current position over the phone, pre-recorded video interview, and Skype.
And that's how most jobs are here. Especially if its a different province/state, they ask you if coming down would be a problem they're ready to schedule a skype or phone interview. And confirm your time availability. They're quite flexible. Cos they know you have a life too.

Some of them only request to see you in person at the last stage and most would fund your travelling and accommodation.

I know someone who recently got a Senior Manager position with one of the Big 4's here, she had all her interviews on Skype. And they considered her doing them more favour.

That's value! That's respect! I pray Africa gets there someday.

Well the man looking for a job sounded highly unproffesional. Imagine saying something like this to a potential interviewer " and I am supposed to start preparing to come for interview tomorrow?" Grow up man, you are not talking to your friends or relatives. something in the line of " I just got the invite and I am currently not in town, can I reschedule?" Their answer will be a simple yes or no abi? Abeg how did you apply sef because people are looking for work ehen

In 2012 I decided I would relocate from Scotland to Canada, then I applied for a job. The company in Canada sent a email and we agreed a timing for the interview, by phone. They called and we spoke. A few days later they asked for another interview to clarify a few things, we repeated this like 3 times eventually they made an offer, we negotiated and they offered to process my TWP. I decided to travel back to Nigeria to spend time with family. They processed my visa via Lagos and for two years we were on this process. The key thing is they never saw me face to face, never asked me to go to any office in Scotland or England or Nigeria to confirm my person. All done online.

A friend of mine works with a multinational in London, his direct supervisor sits in Texas in USA. They see maybe 3 times a year. This has been on for over 6 years.

One day Nigeria shall catch up with the rest of the world in the ease of doing business, until then.... do what you can to get what you need.

Exactement!!! Very true!!! For my current position, my Team lead and Team Manager are in Jamaica. My Boss is in another Province.
Some of my team members are spread across other countries. And when we hold meetings, it's like they're just next door. Ease of doing business.

Naija will get there. Amen!!!

We Nigerians have a messed up mentality, without these great people working their a55 off, there will be no covenant.

Why bank on the employment situation of the country to treat people like they worth nothing.

Same happened to me in a company in PH. Tge interviewers were surprised that i even came with my car. Instead of a proper interview, they were just doing job briefing. I rejected the offer afterwards because the amount they claimed ti have upped was still meagre to me.

I am friend with this chap on Facebook. The guy is extremely good and attempts in more ways than one to reorient the typical Nigeria mindset that has kept us where we are as a people and as a nation.

He is a positive spirit to the society. His acts are legendary. He is a teacher extraordinary. He is a jolly good fellow! Follow him on Facebook and you won't regret.

A friend connected me for a job interview in PH. I was to go to the refinery, i was happy and enthusiastic about the whole thing so i booked a return flight from Abj. We were 2 from Abj. The other girl just finished NYSC.

Interview date came, i met the other girl at the gate. We made a call to the contact, 2 hours later, we where still waiting at the gate. Finally we got a gate pass, we where asked how we were going to get there. Hmmmm, that was a big story.

We walked and asked for directions and we realized we will walk for 2hrs to get to the office. Finally after another hour, a shuttle bus was sent to fetch us.

That was when i realized it wasnt the refinery we were heading to but a construction site of a fertilizer plant. Another hr went by before she was called for interview in a general office by a young expatriate South Korean. When it was my turn, the guy seem like i shouldnt be there. He checked my cv over and over again without speaking much. His first question was how did i get here from Abj, i told him by flight and would return same way. He dropped my cv and began a casual gist, asking about my family status and why i wanted to leave my current employer for them. I knew the job wasnt mine, since it was obvious they needed a trainee and certainly not one who travels by air.

During lunch, we had a chat with one staff who took us to their canteen, i asked him about the pay but he wanted to know my current pay, when i told him, he said this job is not meant for me. They still sent us for medicals and we left thereafter. She was called in a week but i never got nor expected their call and was not going to go even if they called.

It wasnt cool how we waited trekked for an hr while dressed for an interview that turned out to be a contruction coy. I was soaked with sweat from the humidity of PH, that alone made me reject the offer even before the interview took place.

What you get from a negotiation table depends on what you bring to the table.People treat you based on how you value yourself. Employers cash-in on potential employees' fears of losing the job and treat them as some lesser humans. Learn to show them what you get and they will show you some respect. You will get the job it is ever meant for you.Remember first impression lasts longer.

Lol, I feel you. It's a sad situation in Nigeria. We have too many people chasing a few jobs. As far back as 2010, I remember my former Boss at EM always boasting, 'do you know how many people will love to have your job for a quarter of your salary'? Now imagine 2017 when the situation is now worse!

Your explanation is rather unclear. sad What do you mean by "you hit them, before they hit you?" Did the company offend you in the past or do you have a score to settle with them? shocked

I have learnt one thing in this life - never burn your bridges so badly, that you won't be able to use it as a means to communicate with others, or build relationships that might come in useful, much later on. sad

Secondly, always take your exit in a dignified manner. If you had a better job offer from their competitor, before you resumed, it would have been better to let them know before hand, that you would not be able to take up the position they had earlier offered you.

A friend of mine was once interviewed for a role in a multinational company. She did not get the job. But she managed to impress 2 members of the panel. undecided

One of them gave her his card and asked her to call a colleague of his, in another firm. She did, and was offered a job with a higher pay, than what she would have gotten in the first company that turned her down. She behaved with dignity and professionalism. And the tide turned in her favour, as that initial disappointment became a blessing in disguise.
