We have done mass recruitment for Shell. In fact I know their Head of HR, in PH. She had been transferred to Lagos.

Believe me, that email won't fly, unless through placement or specialized recruitment.

Do you know their is something we call we recruitment audit, 3 months after every recruitment. Every single thing you submitted would be verified again.

If you are using that email, then it means you must be extremely good.

DON'T JUDGE A BOOK BY IT'S COVER, the cliché stands

Using your name as your address is good, nevertheless, If the email ad isn't too bad like the one LaudableXX suggested, y not? Don't wait for a full name ad like onikolapoomojogbodarasimiolowogbogboro@hotmail.com before you proceed.

Some recruiters actually request to attach the cover letter so as to print a hard copy of it, and many don't like lengthy emails (myself, e.g). Do indicate your preference while advertising. I support putting a little introduction of your skills in job emails, though.


Try as much as you can to go through a candidate's documents. Only discard CVs if THEY ARE NOT TAILORED OR SUIT THE ROLE not because they are unimpressive. Nigerian recruiters have this annoying habit of not doing so. Imagine an interviewer asking a candidate "do you have any experience/education" while he/she has a copy of the candidate's CV in hand. You have to make them feel you want to study them even as you expect them to study your company.
Reasonable enquiries will focus on their potentials and what they have to offer not on obvious facts.

So many wrong people are in the right positions already because of recruiter bias


Another display of incompetence by recruiters is the act of sending undetailed IVs. How will an invitee acknowledge this?
e.g,

You're invited for an interview
on Mt. Everest
Tuesday by 11:00am bla bla bla...

no position indicated, what if you're a scammer?

THE COWARDLY ACT OF NOT NOTIFYING FAILED CANDIDATES OR saying "WE'LL GET BACK TO YOU" when you plan not to. SO GROSS & DUMB– attitude of lazy recruiters.

Be nice to all candidates. That one you rejected yesterday could hire you tomorrow.

Oh my dear, may you live long! cheesy You just took the words right out of my mouth. wink These days, anyone can follow the so-called 'rules' just to get noticed by a recruiter, and called up for an interview.

But the real test is in the suitability of the candidates for the job, and how much skill, knowledge, ability and expertise, he is able to bring on board. Some people have the most professional e-mail addresses, the best CVs etc, why? Because they have employed so called experts, to help them rewrite their CVs and create professional e-mail addresses, and also teach them how to answer standard interview questions.

Put them on a job, that requires them to think outside the box, or apply specific skills to resolve an aberrant situation, and then you see their sheer incompetence, shining through! shocked

One of the best candidates I ever employed was a guy who sent me his CV. After reading through his CV, I was fascinated by one of his hobbies. So I called him up for an interview. That was when I noticed his e-mail address. It was excalibur@drx.com. Well, being a true fan of the mythical King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table in Camelot, I was intrigued. cool

During the interview, I discovered he had skills in other IT areas, not even listed in his CV, that would come in useful on another project we were about to embark upon. Guess what? We employed him, sharp-sharp. wink He proved to be one of our best hires, ever. He was always quick on the ball, and had a great aptitude for designing creative solutions, and thinking outside the box! On one of the projects he handled for us, we made an additional 35% profit, because the client was impressed with the way he executed it. He was later head-hunted from our firm, by that same client, and we were really sorry to let him go. undecided

My own submission is simple. Give everyone a level playing field. Disenfranchising a potential candidate, by using a criteria that does not add any value whatsoever to his ability to do the job, is highly unfair. sad Did the recruiter put it in his job advert, that submissions should be only made using e-mail addresses that contain the candidate's full name?

OfficialAPCNig:
Learn To Acknowledge Invites Properly

Seriously, if I send my invites, I will never ask you to acknowledge them like many Recruiters do. But if I fail to get your invite 24 hours to the date of the interview, you won't be cleared for the interview.

It is something you should do without being asked. Anyway I stopped asking applicants for their acknowledgment when I got 2 silly acknowledgments from 2 unserious dudes.

The first one was:

Ok, I will be there

The second one was:

I won't come because I am living in Abuja.

I didn't clear the first one for the interview and so he didn't see his name on the Clearance List.

The second dude just lost out because we would be recruiting for one company for the same position in Kaduna and that opening comes with an accommodation

I would have him about it if he had acknowledged my invite properly. If he had consented, since I was in possession of his CV already, I would have transferred him automatically to that opening and forward his CV to our Recruiter there.

Imagine, a top Recruiter referring an applicant. You know what that means.

Good CV just became useless because of useless acknowledgement.

Many of you might be wondering what a Clearance List is.

This is a compilation of all the names of the successful Applicants. It shows their name and position applied for. All they need to do is just sign and enter the time.

We noticed that a lot of job seekers are gate crashing out interviews without been invited. So we devised that means to check them.

Let me give you an expo. A lot of companies are not using this Clearance List but rather Attendance List.

So monitor any company you want to work for, on the day of their interview, just dress well, go there and sign in. They will collect your CV at the venue and interview you as well. If you are successful, you would be employed.

But for us, NEVER!!!


I was so shocked when I received a call from jobberman asking for my permission to send my cv to a company. It felt great...

If you like follow all the above stated rules, if the hiring manager does not like you, no show for you. Getting jobs these days some times lies on networking with the right persons who have a say in the hiring decision. These rules you stated do not apply in every situations.
More so, you are among those arrogant recruiters we have nowadays, why should you judge a candidate on the basis of his email address name...? Doing so is unfair to the candidate. How does email address name affects the candidate's experience and skills, so far a candidate meet the job qualification requirements, he should be given the chance to sale his candidacy.

Cut the crap. undecided I have worked with 3 top multinational firms over the past 10 years, and I used a personal e-mail address, that did not contain any of my names. In one case, I was actually head-hunted by the second company. sad One of those multinational firms posted me to 4 different countries on 3 continents to carry out different assignments, over a period of two years. Ernst and Young is one of the firms that worked for the company. And I once had a chance to vet their bills. So you need to know that you are not talking to a novice. sad

As a young candidate seeking a job, I would advise you to develop your IQ, master your craft, acquire relevant certifications in your field, volunteer for different causes, expand your knowledge, and improve yourself as much as possible, so that anyone would see from your CV, the immense value you are likely to bring to any company that decides to hire you.

Sir/ ma....pls you don't need to defend your position to anyone. Reality check shows there are far more applicants than good jobs. There are millions of graduates but few are employable in world class organisations.

You created this post to help some people who would learn from this. No need to defend yourself at all. Whoever feels strongly about your suggestions should discard it. Advice is not abuse as they say in local circles.

This is a generational problem.....the old brigade were well trained and tutored by the best Nigerian teachers and educationists seasoned with the varied experience of foreigners -British, Ghanian, Indian and Pakistani....this matters and counts. Fast forward today you have schools in 2 bedroom apartments manned by partly qualified fellows..what do you expect?

Finally, many world class companies are bothered about reputational issues and also check social media for posts and opinions before they make an offer to candidates hence the term the internet does not forgive is very real.

He who has ears let him hear that's all. If you don't care you don't need to abuse the poster who is acting in good faith!

This where you are wrong. The fact that it is not the case in your country does not mean it does not apply else where.

I did a masters in international HRM in uk (emphasis on international) and i can tell you for a fact that companies have been sactioned for being bias towards candidates. One of my temp lecturers who happened to be a police commissioner in uk was sanctioned just because they did not want to employ someone who was disabled. They cited security reasons as why the person could not be hired. Guess what, the candidate sued and it was ruled in her favour. I have many examples of where companies are sued for bias (both conscious and unconscious) i know this cos my dissertation was on it.

Sir, the key word there is Disabled, that can as well be included in my list. You're not permitted to discriminate on physiological framework of a person especially if it can be proven that the lack of mobility in a part of the body doesn't hinder the person from performing at the role. That applies in some country not all.
Show me a specific example limited to the scope of what we are discussing here, the email username. I maintain go anywhere in the world, you will never win a case against a bias for denial of privilege on premise of email address except it can be related to race, sex, colour, gender, religion and/or disability.

No sir. The e-mail address adds nothing to your qualifications, work experience or ability to do the job! sad When a person starts elevating inconsequential mundane things above the real issues that matter, it detracts from the value or substance of the project.
your email address says something about your person. Take for instance bigbutt@gmail.com... what comes to your mind first. Take away the sentiments. If you have worked in a multinational company as claimed, you should know what process is. Screening out un professionalism is not in anyway mudane. Personality is something recruiters look out for aside your qualifications and experience. If you are to be an Hr personnel, you will be trained more about this. So let someone with experience in this field advise people. You can advice people in your field. You don't need to tell people how to do their job. And the email address is not just a Nigerian things!

In an economy where we don't have a lot of industries or companies, recruiters find flimsy excuse to disqualify to qualifiable candidates.

Can I ask the recruiter a question? Remember in the good old days, people were employed without a mail address. CV and Cover letter should be the first prerequisite for employment it is because there are no jobs in Nigeria some recruiters treat graduates badly or unfairly.

I don't blame some of you recruiters, I blame the economy and bad leaders we have in Nigeria.

Nigeria we be great again when graduates will be begged to work. Nothing last forever. Nothing is permanent.
