Tips to Passing a Job Interview :
Succeeding in an interview, begins with the presentation of a good curriculum vitae and acquiring additional skills! Before attending an Interview, perfect your use of the Computer, especially the use of Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Be proficient in them and do have a good mastery of the use of the Internet.
Know your would be Employer. It is foolhardy, for you to seek for an employment in a Firm, when you do not know the Founders of the Company, Members of the Board and Management. Know the Company’s logo, mission statement, vision statement and core values.You can find about all these ,through insider’s information, or by any good online search engine,like Google. Read extensively about the Company and rehearse answering questions about it.
Almost everything, you want to know is on Google! Many people are looking for Information, but they have them right there in their hands ,in their smart phones, but most Young People rarely, “face their books”(permit the cliche), but they are mostly on facebook .
Be current and know about happenings in Society,if you want to do well in a a job interview. One of my former students and now a colleague, got a job as a Lawyer in a Big Bank, just by telling the Interviewers ,about Barrack Obama.Learn alot about current affairs, before going for an interview. To this end,you should watch news every day .Nobody will ask you movies done by Ramsey Noah or Genevive Nnaji in a job Interview. They are however likely to ask you question about your Government and Society. Download the Nigerian Newspapers App. on your phone and follow what happens daily.A man who follows is always renewed.
When invited for an interview, through a text message or email,acknowledge receipt of same and indicate you will attend, while thanking them for the Invite. This will give you an amazing edge.You must carry out a well articulated preparation. If possible,simulate an interview with some one interviewing and test your preparedness. Activities in Life that has far reaching consequences,must be done with so much precision.
Arrive at the Interview venue at least 30 Minutes before time. Never go late. You do not have a second time, to make a first impression.When you do arrive ask questions to see what you are expected to do before time.
Ensure you have a positive online profile,before you go for the Interview .Companies believe profiles they see online more than the ones in your CV.
Dress corporately and neatly, preferably in a clean or new suit and well polished shoes, that are Colour Co-ordinated.The males should have a clean cut and a clean shave, while females, should have a neat and subdued hair do! Outlandish and too flambouyant appearances ,are always a turn off.
When invited to converse with the Interviewers, knock on the door and do not open, until you are instructed to do so, doing otherwise, might cost you the job. Do not sit, until you are asked to do so and when you do, close your circuit.When asked the first question, keep to the first rule, introduce yourself (name only), answer the question directly, do not digress, or go on a voyage of red herring. Maintain eye contact, with all Interviewers, do not jump to answering questions, answer calmly and with confidence.
Do not argue with the Interviewers, create an atmosphere of congeniality and be amiable in your demeanor .
Follow all instructions in an Interview. Do not do any thing outside what are are told except it is illegal .
Ensure you smell nice and good with a fresh breath .This is a cardinal element.
Carry the Original copies of your credentials and have multiple copies of same . Carry the Original Copy of your Official ID Card ,with multiple photocopies of same . Make sure you have a ready birthday certificate/declaration of age and Certificate of Local Government of Origin with you in the Interview .
If you are given a written test ,be very careful with answering question avoid erasure,mutilation of your answer script or tippexing .
When you see some one you know among Members of the Interview Panel be formal and do not betray your emotion that you know him or her .
Always check your email every day ,Corporate Businesses are done via Emails.Your Invitation to a Job Interview ,could also be effected through an email.To this end ,you are required to download you Email as an App. in your hand held device .
Do not leave the Interview venue until you are told to do so. If a person referred to an interview,always give feed backs to the person at every stage of the Interview or selection process including any challenges you are encountering.
If you passed the Interview you and asked to resume work ,on the first day at work resume early ,dress appropriately and be diligent at work.Many persons have lost their job on their first day in Office .Be your best at work.

After my service year, I got a 40k sales job. When the disaster called Buhari hit with his first recession in 2016, my salary went from 40k to 20k ( based on % of target met). I will tell you for free, Nigeria is a dream killer but I dey use double barrel follow am for back.
I left the job and began something interesting. Today we are giving back to the society by making it possible to learn everything about cake from scratch to finish for 35k

Let me add. If possible, ask for the contact of the interviewer but not directly. The contact they used in inviting you is okay. Be sure that you send a thank you not or text before the end of the day.
Also, make sure that your answers are brief. Th best answers should be less than 3 minutes. Longer answers makes you add something fluffy. Make all your answers not too long.

I've actually lost a job for not giving back feedback to the person who recommended me. It was not that I didn't try to reach him and give him feedback but when I went to his office, he was not on seat and the people around said he could have gone home.
One other mistake I did was not calling immediately after that to inform him of the interview. It was painful
