[color=#000099][/color]Great job Ayyub. I was impressed by the speed of execution and the almost hourly feedback and follow up from the moment we started chatting about this project on whatsapp till when the job was completed. I do lots of deals with people I meet online, your service was superfantastic. Please give your next customers an even better experience.

Consider your service already booked in my next project. I will recommend anyone to use your service when it comes to roofing, distance is a non issue. Keep up the good work and God bless you.

Business / 1 Million Naira Business With Monthly Returns Of 50k. by jpmcmanus(m): 7:14pm On Nov 12, 2010
Fellow NLs,
I have a little above 1 million and was wondering if there exists any form of business that I can get it into that will be able to generate about 50k monthly to take care of my bills. It has to be something that will need little of my involvement because my job does not afford me the time. I will appreciate constructive responses. Thanks in anticipation.

Jobs/Vacancies / Re: Nigerian Brewr Interview!pls Help by jpmcmanus(m): 1:39pm On Oct 28, 2007
As per the Group Discussion, you will be in a team with other members and you will be given about 30 Minutes to proffer solutions to a business problem which a fictitious company is facing. For the individual presentation, you will be given 5 minutes to speak on any topic they so desire. The technical interview is just usual interview that we know of-career goals, weaknesses and bla bla bla.
Good Luck Bro!

Just do your best.
Jobs/Vacancies / Selection Assessment Centre Tips by jpmcmanus(m): 8:30am On Oct 22, 2007
Assessment Centres are an objective process designed to give you a range of opportunities to demonstrate your skills and abilities.They are not trying to catch you out so the best approach is to be yourself and sell yourself. You are not in competition with other candidates but against a general standard. The aim is to consider making offers of employment to all that reach that standard.

What is being assessed at a selection centre?

The employer will have a checklist of competencies - the essential skills and personal attributes required for the job. These will naturally vary from job to job but may include:

Leadership skills
Analytical skills
Working under pressure
Teamwork Co-operating with other people
Verbal and written communication skills

Case Studies

You are given information about a situation which you will need to assimilate and form an opinion on. You could be asked some questions about what you would do. Alternatively you may be asked to write a recommendation in a report. Either way you are being tested on your ability to analyse information, come up with solutions, exercise your judgement and express yourself.

In-tray Exercises

These may be on computer or on paper. Whichever it is, you will be given a scenario, for example - you are the new manager of a unit and your task is to assess an in-tray. It will contain a pile of internal and external messages, letters, faxes, reports and correspondence to deal with. You must make a decision about each item, prioritising it, drafting replies, delegating tasks and recommending actions. You may find new items are added as the exercise progresses. You are being tested on how you handle complex information within a limited time. This is an opportunity to demonstrate your planning, decision-making and communication skills.


You may be asked to give a short talk to other candidates and/or the selectors. Sometimes you prepare it in advance of the interview, other times it will be prepared on the day. It might be related to another exercise. There may be on a topic you have been asked to prepare in advance or may be impromptu speeches. Generally, candidates are given up to half-an-hour to prepare their topic. Try to:
Speak clearly and confidently.
Keep within the allotted time.
Give a structured talk with an introduction and conclusion
Maintain good eye contact with your audience
Note down key points to keep yourself on course during your speech

Group activities

You may have to take part in a practical task, like building a paper clip and pipe cleaner bridge capable of transporting a golf ball from one table to another. Alternatively it could be a leaderless discussion or a role playing exercise where you are each given a brief and a goal to work towards. The selectors are looking for how well you work with other people. They may also be looking for verbal communication, negotiating, persuading, problem-solving and planning skills. Good team working is about getting your ideas forward in a co-operative way. You will get credit for listening to and building on other people's ideas not just your own ideas. Being assertive, persuasive and diplomatic is the key. Manage any dominating characters by allowing them to have their say and then encouraging contributions from others. Don't try to shout them down. Remember you are not competing against the other members of the group. The assessors will be aware of your diplomatic contribution even if it does not change the behaviour of the dominant one. Other tips to consider include:
Get a good grasp of any information provided to you without getting bogged down in detail. Not everyone in the group may have exactly the same information.
Work out your objectives, make a plan and follow it.
Keep a balance between taking your own ideas forward and helping the group achieve its task.
Actively listen to everyone else by nodding, smiling and making eye contact.
It is what you say not how much you say that counts.
Don't assume shy or quiet members have nothing to contribute, helping them to participate will go in your favour.
Make sure someone in the group keeps an eye on the time.

I believe this will go a long way to help fellow landers!

Please confirm by calling them. PeoplePrime is a great organization and Iam a testimony to that effect. They mean well everyjobless graduate out there. Please try and attend, you never can tell. As per the NGN500, its very unlike them, i have attended about two tests and one interview through PeoplePrime and they have never demanded for administrative fees. All the best though!
