1. Preparing for Graduate Test
A good paying job is always competitive.
An example is a Bank Graduate Trainee job. When such a bank advertises for the role, they need only about 40 – 100 graduates, which would be trained at the bank training school. Yet over 10,000 would be invited for test. Do the maths.
Such bank would usually have 2 stages of Graduate Test. Stage 1 would cut down about 9,000 graduates. Stage 2 would cut off about 700 or more. The remaining candidates would now be invited for interview, which would also be in stages.
2. Rewriting their CV to sell their skills under 5 seconds of a Recruiter reading it.
At the interview stage, a perfect and well written CV is the bomb.
I have seen cases where the Interview Panel would just abandon their Interview Template and pick a good point on the CV and start interviewing the candidate on it.
3. Learning how to answer interview questions.
Can we meet you? Don’t say your name and stop. That’s a weak answer. They already know your name.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years time? Being the MD of the company. Haba now!!! While it’s okay to aspire to be the MD, there are better ways of saying it.
Thanks for reading. Please share!!!
