Insider Tips and Tricks from an international HR practitioner

Posted on Feb 13 2016 - 5:08pm by genny

Getting a graduate or entry-level job can be such an emotional roller-coaster – I’ve been there and can say for a fact that it’s no walk in the park. Sometimes the whole thing feels like you’re going round in circles and it can be very frustrating – you apply for loads of jobs, (sometimes) attend interviews but still don’t get any offers. You think, and wonder:

What am I doing wrong? What is that employers want that I don’t have?

So joining us this week to shed light on these things, and provide answers to some of our most burning questions is an international HR professional who is currently an executive in the Lagos office of a global multinational – she wishes simply to be addressed by her initials, F.A.A.

In this masterclass, she gives us the inside scoop on:

  • The key employability skills employers look for in graduates
  • How to use social media platforms like LinkedIn to find jobs
  • How to negotiate your salary / pay package

+ lots more!

Please listen to the audio below…

We would love to hear from you so please leave your comments, thoughts and/or questions. We also have more interviews with industry experts lined up, so please let us know what other questions you would like answered.

Don’t forget to share this with your friends and any other person that might find it helpful 😀
