And this

Answer is B.

First sequence: The number of objects increases down the group.

Second sequence: the objects on the third column, are shaded differently from the 2nd column. You can also see how the colors vary from left to right (black white black).

Third sequence: the number of circles increase down the columns.

I have followed this thread since the inception of its creation. DPR recruitment has several dynamics to it, from Inside Caucus, to God's Favour, to sheer providence. As expected, people are going to form different postulates based on their viewpoints.

Throughout the course of this exercise, I have fallen into all categories - Applicant Portal Closed, Didn't receive email to edit profile, and other categories that have been classed on this platform; even the category of having missed my interview date after the entire exercise (my portal was closed throughout the interviewing stage, only to be opened this week, but I still had my interview).

Summary of this post is that, nobody can confidently state the decision matrix during selection / screening process, not even majority of the DPR staff. So to anyone hoping, I say - remain hopeful, God will surprise you. To those speculating, I say - keep speculating. To those with confidential informants, I say- keep being misinformed.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all. Safe travels on your onward journeys.


Jobs/Vacancies / Re: Operations Management Leadership Program - OMLP by Postulates: 7:24pm On Dec 14, 2017

As insinuated..
Do you have a foreign degree?
Do you have a referral?

Best of luck mate cheesy

Just Donelli wink

Mr. Donelli , the answer to both is No.

Funny enough, it was just one out of eight that had a foreign degree with three of eight having referrals.

Also, during a casual conversation with them people - yeah (HR staff), we were alerted to the issue;more than 70% of OMLP intakes are with Nigerian qualification, with ~ >30% of OMLP intakes in Nigeria being Covenant University graduates.

The postulate about foreign qual. dominated intake is inaccurate.

I don't know why, but it's funny. grin grin grin grin

Turns out all the above vituperation are true. I applied on 10 Nov with just an acknowledgement and here you are having attended AC.

Anyways, how did it go... How was the turn out.

Just Donelli wink

I applied on the same day as you and received the same acknowledgement, just like you. Received a call about a fortnight ago regarding my details; then a second call regarding an AC this week.

I don’t know if there’s a selection algorithm, but we were just eight of us, there.

A five minutes presentation about yourself, and why the program. Then an open-ended 15-40minutes interview with the panelists. Diversit of questions, from your resume to behavioral-esque experiences, to company information.

Politics / Re: NNPC Scandal: PENGASSAN, NUPENG Pledge Support for Baru (Photos) by Postulates: 6:20am On Oct 10, 2017
One thing I surely know about we Nigerians is that once a story comes up and its what we love, we believe it hook line and sinker...however, when it doesn't suit our narrative, we argue over it endlessly.

The crisis between Baru and Kachickwu has to do with ego between the two. When Kachickwu was the GMD and the State Min of Petroleum the first thing he did was to move Baru away to a position where he became irrelevant.

For some of you who have followed the story truthfully, you will know that Baru being the most senior then had hoped Buhari will make him the GMD but Buhari opted for Kachickwu an outsider instead and that affected Baru psychologically. As God will have it, Kachickwu usoped his power as GMD and state Min of petroleum by Raising memos as GMD and he could easily make PMB agree and sign without much eagle eyes Orr challenge.

Kachickwu had given so much contracts to his cronies and appointed into key positions his people to ease his runs but over time, it was clear that Buhari was silently allowing for the creation of another Diezieni and that was put to a halt by appointing Baru as GMD.

I don't have to explain how it would when you humiliate a person and suddenly he is back where he out to be.

Sadly to Kachickwu, KARMA is what has come to greet him.

Baseless. Baru wasn't the most senior at the time

It's saddening that you guys are keeping something as exciting as a business game to yourself and trying to quench the little fire that peeps are trying to kindle.

I have lost out on opportunities that align more strongly to my career goals(when compared to AB) and I'm still alive. It's safe to say that the same thing applies for a lot of people on here.

The unanswered question has been and still is how did your business game go? A lot of people would like to know what your strategy was, how you worked under pressure, how stubborn were your team mates, how did you handle such people, how did you handle the pressure, did you have problems understanding the assessors because of their accent. Nobody, has been able to answer this. Nobody has been able to even talk about the food and how cozy the hotel was sad sad .

Yet you spend time discussing about how impossible it is for another Business game to occur. One even went through the 'stress' of posting something off glass door, like glassdoor requires missile codes and signatures from Pentagon to access it.

On the brighter side, I'm glad I don't get to work with you people.

I believe I took out time to explain my experience of the business games and even went further to state that a successful candidate's experience in 2015 or so, was similar to mine and the other 63 people. It is certain you didn't get the point of posting a glassdoor remark; as this was to further reiterate that the business games format, is still the same. Also, as people are really reluctant to release information, you could bank on the information there, which is applicable to Nigeria's BG type.

Again, if you missed my previous post, I stated that you had to alter two or three parameters to improve profitability, i-social and market share. It was only a competition between teams and not competition between team members within their respective groups.

Simple strategy was to study the trend and do some price sensitivity or elasticity evaluation, drawing up correlation dynamics between different parameters and finding an equilibrium point.

Strongest team members were moved around.

Food was great, buffet meals - breakfast, lunch, dinner.

Hotel room was comfy, the hotel bar had good beer variety. Our assessors even covered a two-hour drinking session for us, at the end.

I really don't wanna feel disappointed cuz i had serious hopes. Submitted my on-demand video interview on the morning of 21th August with the deadline being 22nd, 11:33am and after passing through two nights without sleep to prepare. There was no success or failure reply, else i was sure of being in the last business games too, I'm sure I'm not the only one in this. Peeps here have helped with info in the past, I feel Michael and the others have a right to share or not share, the competition is stiff and its understandable. But a little tip won't hurt, atleast for the sake of learning something from this.

Your post really did hit me hard. I cannot offer any insight to you, really. I was invited for the on-demand video kini something, on the 19th but didn't submit till 00:04 hours on deadline day 22nd. I received an invite for the business games, 4pm, that day.

With such things, maybe could be providence, but I am truly sorry they have kept you in limbo. I don't know how the algorithm works, as some people had business game invite prior to doing the virtual interview.

Don't lose hope...but pursue other opportunities whilst at it. Cheers.

Hello everyone, we need not bash people on this thread.

You like anyone of them, should understand their reasons for being apprehensive.

Like most of comments by the participants at the business games, the numbers from 20K to 64 to 4/5 are correct.

Is the business game invite over for the GMT? Probably cannot say, I will let you come to that conclusion on your own, because their recruitment timeline had business game invite(s) as :

South Africa
Nigeria & Ghana
East Central Africa
South Africa

With Final Panel Interview for Nigeria, slated for Oct 30 - 31. The other final panel interview had Sep 13 - 15, on the presentation slide - my guess is that, the other regions will be handling those dates.

On the 30th of August, the "international" recruitment team, left for Ghana and stated they'll proceed to Tanzanian region, and finally to South Africa, with explicitly no comments about returning to Nigeria for the GMT, within the stipulated window.

They further explained that other recruitments will open up for other Graduate Trainee roles - SMT and Technical. In the event anyone of us, in attendance aren't successful with the GMT role, we would be considered for the other country roles, when they are reviewing or recruiting candidates for the aforementioned roles.

A quick search on glass door will give you insight into the business games. My experience was similar to that of a candidate, recruited in 2015.

Business games situation:

Two batches of 16 people - morning and afternoon sessions. Each session has four team members - President, VP Sales & Marketing, VP CSR, VP Finance & Supply.

Each team has different market forecasts and tries to control the most market share. There are rules, with set penalties and points for improving profitability, I-social, and market share above a certain threshold.

Each group tries to outwit each other for about 6-8 rounds. Then, you've a 3 minutes presentation on improving profitability of a company.

N.B: Depending on your session, you might have to do either the business game first or the presentation; but not both at the same time.

Good luck to everyone expecting feedback this week, and to the others hoping for a response, regarding the GMT, do not give up. Your story could be different. After all, Seth did say; "not everyone was invited to the business game the same way" (I don't know what he meant by that).

I have tried to give a robust response all inquests.

For those asking, my application to business game invite took five days, check my previous post on this thread.

Pls do u hav idea how their test will look like? I know that the last time they conducted aptitude test, it was paper based & included topics like Maths/Further Maths, Econs, Physics, Chemistry, Geography/Geo Physics, History, Current affairs, Engineering e.t.c. It was organized & conducted by Eraproserve. Many of the candidates then complained about the standard of the test claiming that it was unorganized. Some even called it Academic exam. This time it's goin 2 be CBT & not PBT, do u think it's going 2 come out from GMAT? Response will highly be appreciated.

Quite frankly, I have no clue, regarding the test content or format. If it's CBT, like you stated earlier, a generic practice of SHL-CEB, GMAT, et al. , should suffice.

I wouldn't bother too much on the format, but rather, on your ability to quantitatively analyze pictorial information - charts/tables, word problems, %ages, etc.

If I'm privy to any information, regarding this, I'll keep you informed. Thank you.

Politics / Re: Buhari Seeks Senates Confirmation Of Two Supreme Court Justices by Postulates: 2:37pm On Oct 11, 2016
senate President Bukola Saraki, on the floor
of the senate this morning read a letter from President Buhari seeking confirmation of appointment of two Supreme Court Justice. The names forwarded for confirmation are Justice Sidi Dauda Bage (North-Central) and Justice Paul Adamu (North-East)

source;- http://www.jeloser.info/2016/10/president-buhari-seeks-senates.html

Most people here aren't discerning. This is a direct like-for-like replacement of the two JSCs retiring this year.

The CJN, being from Jalingo, Taraba State - retiring November 2016; and the No.4 in line of CJN succession, Suleiman Galadima, from Nassarawa State - retiring October 2016.

We should calm down and do a little research, it will help in alienating the northernization conspiracy theory.
