Why Employers Should Interview Applicants Online by Pavillon: 10:35am On Jul 26, 2020
I think it's time employer adopt online method for interviewing job applicants. There are different video messaging platforms that can help in this era. Firstly,to reduce the spread of this pandemic, most meetings and even more important official events are now held online. I see no reason why these companies cannot adopt this method
And most importantly, the recent hike of Tfare in Lagos is crazy. Imagine spending 3-4k from mainland all the way to a coy on the island only for you to hear we'll get back to you.. The same thing I will say in physical is what I will also say online during the video call. Pls dear employers let's help ourselves

Take for example this my guy below.

I don't think they've replied him until now. He's just a fresh graduate, managing the money he saved from his alawee, imagine now spending everything on transportation. Let's fear God naaaa

In Nigeria, your interviewer is not concerned about your brain.

They want to see other things like your booty, boobs, figure, height, lips, chest/pacs, muscles, your mannerisms etc to help them decide if they can sleep with you later or if you will compete with them in the office for the opposite sex.

A good suggestion. But will they listen? Virtual interview can help for most jobs but not all. Nigeria needs to shift with the tides. Some countries run many jobs from home. It can be replicated here in the case of lockdowns so many wont be displaced.

In saner clime, Yes. But, Nigerian HRMs assume themselves to be demi-gods, and they misbehave a lot. They will even tell you to forget about it if you can't make it

Nigerian HRMs should learn to put back the "Human" in Human Resources.

I don't even attend physical interviews. If a company in Japan will interview me online why should a company in Lagos stress me to come to their office when it's not as if they will pay my transport.

How about the male in your family, do they belong to the category
Re: Why Employers Should Interview Applicants Online by Karleb(m): 1:33pm On Jul 09
Many actually do this. If a software development company insist on physical interview, it's possible they might not be the best fit.

I've done whatsapp interview and I think it's cool.
