Keeping abreast of current happenings in and around your environment at local, national and international levels is essential. The company is concerned about happenings around them especially as relates to their industry; the company believes you should be informed about global trends and happenings.
Your first interview can be a daunting task, we know because we have been there. We know how uncomfortable interviewing can be. Our candid advice is to be prepared, stay relaxed and you will be fine.
You need to ensure that your appearance depicts seriousness and confidence. A smart shirt with a nice tie, possibly a nice suit should suffice and a genuine smile. Remember that first impressions matter a lot. You need to exude confidence and competence to the recruiters.
The interviewers are trying to get to know you better so they will need your help. Be sure to express your strengths and skills clearly. You’ll also want to explain the areas you feel you need to develop.
Ensure your CV is well developed and free of typos and errors. It should effectively tell the story of your professional journey and your strengths as an employee.
