  3. How To Identify A Scam Interview Invitations

    1. The message does not bear a company name: most of these scammers won’t include their names on the message you will receive. All you will see are the address, the time and date and a phone number. A genuine company will not hide its identity from a potential employee.

    2. The message will say “interview/job briefing”: whatever job briefing means I don’t know!
    3. You will see a code or reference: something like “HR=0056” or “REF=002”. This is an indication of the code number of the person who invited you to the “job briefing”.
    4. It will contain a phone number: this is the number of your referer. Most genuine companies don’t give phone numbers.
    5. You will see HR Admin in the message instead of company name
    6. If you call their number, they will be reluctant to give info on the company.

    And pls, ignore those people sharing job flyers on the streets, and those ones they paste on walls. Those are scammers and some ritualists too. And also most of these so called agencies are avenues for duping unsuspecting job seekers. Pls shine your eyes well well.

    Pls if you have any experiences inthe hands of these scammers kindly share it here so that others can learn and avoid them too. Thank you


  4. Get a career you can be proud of
    Getting ahead. Staying ahead.

    Sometimes the secret to boosting your career lies less in finding the next job or catching the next flight to work abroad. Sometimes all your career needs is investment and time in yourself -essentially self-improvement skills. Learning a new skill or improving your soft skills could be
    exactly what you need to get your career to the next level.

    Career Tips and Advice
    Learn something new every day Self-improvement is not only important for your
    personal life, it’s also necessary for staying
    ahead of the competition.

    Why soft skills are essential
    It’s not only about what you know or how
    technically competent you are. Your technical skills are weighed against your soft skills, and it’s the quality of your soft skills that gets you noticed.

    Make sure you’re in the know with the latest gigs happening in your industry.


  5. Volunteering for organizations will get you a job and increase your network

    Volunteering is always a great way to meet new people, and the volunteers you meet will be valuable additions to your professional network. They might be able to recommend you for a new job opening up at their company, or they might see potential in you as a partner for a new enterprise they’re starting up. Because you’ll be working together in a context outside of your regular job, it’s a perfect opportunity to learn more
    about your potential career aptitudes. Plus, listing volunteer experience on a resume never hurt anyone.


  6. Share your burden

    Sometimes, writing your problems down, and sharing with others, saying them out loud will help you put those problems in perspective.
    A problem shared is a problem half-solved, so share, what career frustrations are you facing right now?

  8. Are your skills up to date?

    The world of work has changed significantly in the last 20 or 30 years, and again during the current recession. No one can expect a job for life anymore, working your way up the organisation until you retire at 65 with a gold clock and a final salary pension.

    In today’s world many companies are themselves bidding for work which is outsourced, and are under pressure to keep staff numbers tight, to remain competitive and win contracts.
    When they win a contract they must set about finding suitably skilled and trained staff, normally via recruitment agencies, and often at short notice. They will often take staff on as contractors, rather than as permanent staff, utilising them as and when they need them.

    So employers do not have the time or the motivation to nurture skills in employees. The employer has no interest in developing the skills of temporary workers. They need them to be “work ready” when the posts are advertised. Employees need to take control of that themselves. If employees want to win work of a technical nature, such as ITC work, or data communications, they must take responsibility for their own continued professional
    development, ensuring they develop new portable skills that are of use to organisations that have contracts to fulfil.

    So- are your skills up to date? If not, then you probably need to take some action yourself. Your ability to get or keep a position in this environment could depend on your ability. So to make an application good value to the employer, you need to get your skills and knowledge up to speed. To see how you would measure up in the market place, ask yourself
    Do I have industry specific
    Are they up to date?
    What professional development have I
    Have I attended any in-house courses?
    What about workshops, or webinars
    Have I been to any conventions or
    Can I demonstrate the practical application of my studies in my work and on my CV or resume?
    Have I received any industry recognition or award?
    Have I been asked to speak at any engagements, write in any
    If the answer to these questions indicates that some effort is required from you identify any opportunities that you can to make amends. Look out for courses, conferences and seminars that you could attend on your companies’ behalf.
    This should enhance your contribution to your company and help to ensure your position is secure in difficult times. Or maybe you need to invest in yourself.If you are self-employed or unemployed it is likely that you regularly evaluate your skills and abilities against those in demand in the market place. You may identify learning and development gaps, and may decide to
    undertake formal or informal training to close those gaps and ensure your skills are relevant and up to date.

    So review your CV or resume with a critical eye, viewing it from an employee’s point of view, and bolster your skills with relevant and in demand skills and qualifications.


  9. Make your career moves work for you

    There are many favourable reasons why you’ve moved from one job to the next – landing a dream job, acquiring a new skill, a higher salary -the list is endless. But with constantly changing jobs comes certain disadvantages, including
    explaining your job hopping tendencies to recruiters. Make your varied career history work in your favour by putting the right kind of spin on it.
