This is to show case fake news declaimer of NYSC

"
The attention of the Management of the National Youth Service Corps has been drawn to a fraudulent advertorial, purportedly issued by the Scheme, calling on unsuspecting Nigerians to apply for recruitment.

Management wishes to state that the Scheme did not place the advert, and shall duly observe laid down rules for recruitment into the Public Service when the need arises.
Members of the public, particularly 2019 Batch "A" Corps Members that recently passed out from the Service are therefore admonished to disregard the phantom advert.

Thank you.

If you are seen a NYSC Medical Certificate Online or Online Redeployment and Relocation and you are thinking,

Can I do Online redeployment?
Can I do Online medical report?
Or
Can I do Online medical fitness report?

The answer is simply, No can you be tested or treated online, just simply go to the hospital or government clinic to check. That might be the only time in your life to even know those details

The saddest is
Can I reduce my age to go to NYSC

Don't even if you can. NO there is so much out there than a change in location and camping for you life.

NYSC Replied with this

PCMs, BEWARE OF FRAUDSTERS POSING AS NYSC OFFICERS ASKING YOU TO PART WITH SOME MONEY FOR THE PURPOSE OF RELOCATION
As the 2020 Batch 'A" Stream One Corps Members travel across the length and breadth of the country in response to the clarion call to serve the Nation, it has become very imperative to release this caveat.

1, Relocation of Corps Members is done free of charge and on two major grounds namely: Marital and Health.
Marital is applicable only to female Corps Members that are genuinely married. However, the applicant must support her application with valid documents, such as: Marriage Certificate or Affidavit of Marriage, Newspaper Change of Name, a Letter indicating the husbands Place of Domicile.
Relocation on Health ground is applicable to only those with life - threatening ailments. The applicant must support his/her request with his/her Medical History and be ready to appear before a Medical Panel for an interview that will either validate or invalidate the request as the case may be.

2, Kindly note again that the National Youth Service Corps Scheme does not charge money for relocation which is the right of every qualified Corps Member, neither does it charge money for deployment, posting or any of the services it renders.

3, Be wary of criminals who masquerade as NYSC Officers promising you what they cannot offer in order to fleece you of your money.

4, The Director - General Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim DSS PhD MTRCN wishes you a resounding success as you proceed to render selfless service to the Nation.

Thank you.

Thanks, have a great trip to all prospective corp members throughout your life, service year and to camp

Good day to everyone, as a prospective corp member PCM there are a number of things that are not compulsory or even necessary to take along food is one, and before we go deep into that there are numerous list of things that is often sent around for PCMs to take along.

But if you pick all this it will make your movement to camp more stressful. ALWAYS REMEMBER CAMP IS NOT YOUR LAST DISTINATION BUT A BEGIN OF A SHORT STAY. especially for those relocating you have to bring some of this things back when you can even buy some things there

Let us start by saying materials not accepted in camp

  • Sharp objects are not allowed in camp, forks, knife etc
  • Hard drugs are not accepted on camp ground
  • Medication are generally not accepted too, their is a clinic available for your use
  • Car, and automobile are not allowed, afterall it is a camp
  • Laptops are often not accepted too

Let us move to the second point of discussion, which food will NYSC give me;

This can be the worries of some PCM but often times there are standard Nigerian food that you will be feed with with a regular and more often Bread and Tea in the morning.

To address this better, a Timetable will be set for your feeding in which with a feeding ticket, you can be served this meal. Not to forget their is also local meal given to corp member which is often dependent on your state of camping.

To conclude on this, PCM are also involved in the preperation of their mean in which every Platoon will have their kikchen day and even a cooking competition.

Important Camp Document

Document are needed in NYSCcamp for the registration procedure during camp,
you are requested to bring to camp your

  • original statement of result,
  • Institution identity card and
  • 8 recent passport photographs.
  • Callup Letter
  • Green card

In addition, if you are a Medical Doctor, Pharmacist or an Optometrist you will be
expected to bring along original of your registration certificate with the Nigerian Medical Council, Pharmacist Board or
Optometrist Registration Council and evidence of completion of housemanship or internship.

Don't forget this is the fundamental documents and you can have excess copy to prevent exuberant prices that comes with camp. But Note every other things are secondary but does not make tell less important for a memorable camp experience.

Thanks

Continuation On Online Registration FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) series 5

Why ask prospective corps members to pay N2,786.24 just to print call-up letters?

The N2,786.24 is not just for printing call-up letters. It is for the entire package of online registration, which requires the deployment of IT hardware and software and personnel to orientation camps all over the country but which also gives those who subscribe to it the advantage of processing their registration online, saving time during registration at the orientation camps and allowing them to use their thumbprints to identify themselves in case they lose or are dispossessed of their call-up letters.

In the past, corps members who lose or are dispossessed of their call-up letters had to go through a cumbersome process of swearing affidavits, getting validation from their schools which takes time and may force them to enlist on another batch.

With online registration, those who are unfortunate to lose their letters can identify themselves with their fingerprints. So the N2,786.24 fee is for the entire process and package of benefits.

Is the initiative not extortionist and insensitive?

As explained above, the initiative was designed with all sense of fairness and sensitivity.

It is not extortionist, as extortion implies the use of open or subtle threat. No open or subtle threat is involved here. It is not compulsory and non-use of it carries no sanction. It is only for those who choose to exercise the option after doing their own cost-benefit analysis. NYSC is sensitive to the fact that not everyone needs or can afford this.

Both those who need and can afford it and those who don’t need it or can’t afford it are given options to choose from. The initiative is thus both fair and sensitive.

Why not maintain the status quo?

Contrary to claims, the status quo remains. NYSC has not
abolished the practice of prospective corps members going to their schools to pick call-up letters.

That is still allowed. What has happened is that an extra option has been introduced, which prospective corps members may choose or may not choose to exercise. Closing this new option will not necessarily be at zero cost to those who prefer the status quo, as prospective corps members have always been responsible for picking their call-up letters. But closing the option will be at the expense of those who will prefer it as this will rob them of their right to choose.

Good day to everyone, today we want to conclude about NYSC Query, if you are yet to check the previous post you can check it

How to reply an NYSC Query

Here’s how to reply an NYSC query letter

Begin by understanding the message communicated in the query letter.
What is it about?

Who is concern personal, or general (might be for those who are not around for something)?

Is it about something that you are aware about or unaware of?

If you are aware about it, was it intentional or circumstances forced you to?

Here is a sample of a specific NYSC query letter

5e50cd03ce705

Read the query letter, acknowledging the tone used by your NYSC management strata issuing it. This will help know the best way to reply to the query letter. This step applies to how to reply a query letter at your PPA following any kind of misconduct.

The next step is to analyze what you will write. Remember, your disciplinary action(extension) might be at stake depending on the level of misconduct.

Therefore, you do not want to use a tone, words or explanation that will communicate more reasons to have a bad perception about you.

Preferably, you can write your points down before you compose the final draft. For instance, when writing a reply to query for negligence of duty, you can think of the factors that led to such a malpractice and how you can phrase your ideas so that the apology is genuine.

Now, write your response. When replying to high level query letter, you have to bear in mind that the letter is for official purposes. Therefore, use a professional tone rather than a conversational one.

On the left margin of the paper indicate the contact details of the official you are replying to. In replying an official query letter, then it is important to know that you must indicate the topic of the matter you want to address in the paper.

When writing begin by acknowledging your misconduct. If there is enough evidence to show that you were lateness or absent, do not argue. Show acceptance of your mistake to avoid conflicts with the authority.

Proceed to explaining why you failed to adhere to the regulations of the institution. Remember, you want to convince the authority to accept your apology. As such, give valid reasons why you acted the way you did.

In the last paragraph, give your boss the assurance that you will never repeat the mistake.

In conclusion, when writing, be specific. Do not add unnecessary information. The information you provide should be very brief and do not wander away from the main topic.

Unless you are asked to respond to several issues related to misconducts at work, then it can be lengthy. However, responses to query letters are usually short and straight to the point. Also, use correct sentence structure and be grammatical, so it might be understood your explanation submit a well written response.

Reasons while Prospective Corps Members should choose to travel to far place

What is the fun of doing your National youth service year at your region or zone? Many will say because of security or access to home? But not all part of Nigeria is insecure and why do you need access to home, when you can explore and have friends, father mother elsewhere, people that cheers you and want you well.
I personally have access to travel to the far north for my national youth programme, then I was posted to Yobe State and it was a whole lot of experience, let me share with you reasons why you should travel;

  1. It gets you out of your comfort zone

Whether you travel independently or as part of an in a group, you’re stepping into a completely new world that may be well out of your comfort zone. Perhaps you’ve never traveled alone before or being around people other than your close family and friends makes you feel intimidated. This people will end up been your friends at camp. But once you take the plunge, you’ll probably be surprised at the transformation that takes place. Chances are you’ll find a confidence you never knew you had and be able to take on challenges you never would have tackled previously.

  1. It puts life in perspective

If you’ve grown up, a graduate at least in your 20's with all the comforts of the modern world and had the opportunity to go to school and even university, it’s easy to forget that this isn’t the case for everyone in the Country. Traveling to other part of the country, particularly those in the local areas, can be a big wake up call and put your own life in perspective. Things that you may take for granted, like having running hot water, modern appliances and the opportunity to study in the best universities and get a well-paid job at the end of it are not available to everyone, purely because of where they were born. You’ll probably come away with a new appreciation for everything you have and the opportunities that life throws your way.

  1. You’ll make friends from across the country

One of the best things about NYSC is undoubtedly the friendships, unity it fosters and connections you make with people from people from everywhere. You might be surprised at just how close you can come to people within a matter of hours if you’re thrown together by circumstance in a Local government, that is home to neither of you. Volunteer placements are a great way to establish firm friendships as you work towards a common goal, not only with other Corp members, but also the local community. The interactions you’ll have will provide an incredible local insight into cultural traditions which can only be experienced in those state camps, beliefs and way of life on a communal level – something that you just can’t experience on TV or in a text book.

  1. You’ll discover the world’s incredible cultural diversity

Even if you live in a multicultural society like Lagos or Abuja and there are people of all beliefs and cultures living in your city, this is only scratching the surface of what is out there. NYSC Travel is a great way to immerse yourself in the cultural diversity that exists in our world. From festivals to food which you will be served in camp, ceremonies, the mammi filled with cultural wears and carnival day, it’s mind blowing the unique ways,

  1. You might learn a new language (or three)

Whether it’s just a few words (usually the curses, and greetings) or you decide to go fluent, NYSC travel is the best way to learn a new language. Once you’re immersed in a new destination, you’ll be surprised at just how fast your language skills develop with everyday interactions. Even if you can only manage

  1. NYSC Travel opens your eyes.

If you’re open and willing, journey will lead you to an incredibly more well-rounded human being. And that’s really the goal, isn’t it?

  1. Traveling develops skills you didn’t know you had

Sometimes it’s only far from home that you realize you you’ve got skills you’ve never used. It’s scheme that brings them to the surface and makes you smile, satisfied to have reached the mountain top, or crossed a gorge or helped a villager clean up after a storm, like I experienced passing through Jos in snow, cross the Niger Bridge and the vast landscape of the North (sahel)

  1. NYSC travels bring out freedom in you and make you a better man

How will it sound that after NYSC you are still fully dependent on home for everything, you can still be monitored, this is not to be unruly or irresponsible. But NYSC travelling to a long distance will allow you to make your choices, your phone will usually be dead for some day, you have to be able to navigate your way around things. Is this not what makes you a man or woman?

  1. Travel helps you move forward

You have been within the four walls of the schools for so long, you may be in a job or have kids, or relationships, around NYSC travel can be a perfect way to move from some of these life stages into your next great adventure. A big trip won’t just ease your transition into the next stage of your life, it’ll give you a chance to reflect on where you’ve been, where you’re going, and where you want to end up.

  1. Travel is education

NYSC provides platform education about more of the country that’s absolutely impossible get in school. NYSC travel will teaches you more of economy, politics, history, geography, and sociology in an intense, hands-on way no class will. Fortunately, the travel will be paid for even though negligible(bicycle allowance)

  1. It looks great on your resume

Taking a NYSC Year or time out to a distant place gives you a unique story and experience, it will always looks good on a resume, and employers see it as a sign of maturity and experienced that will make you a better employee. Most understand that travel improves confidence and independent thinking, and they are secretly hoping that you’ll step into your new professional role having seen some of the world and (perhaps) having kicked the travel bug a little!

  1. Travel challenges you and shakes things up

During your journey you will stop, like I remember will did then and I took a bike to the atm at Kogi the man was not from my tribe and I have a little paranoia. You will choose to work on the road (and keep staring at the screen), you’ll have to find a new place to drink, and depending on your destination, finding food, or money like me then look for ATM could prove to be a sizeable challenge. Travel is full of moments of joy and challenges. Overcoming the challenges gives you some of the greatest joys of all.

Finally NYSC is a means for some maybe once a life to explore and Travel so if you are about to register or travel down to camp while not see it as dreams do come true. I remember I use to take a stroll every night, to explore every around me. When weather the people, you walk in the dark and ask for road, someone somewhere will even say "Corper",

Away from your father and people you should imagined it, daydreamed about it, envisioned it. Guess what? It can be done.

Here is another chance to register again, while not Abia if you are from Osun or Ekiti if you are from Kano.
or going to camp, while not accept your posting with good faith, don't let us influence it but rather have a great stories, the opportunity will can create for others should be in our hearts

Make you choices wisely as others are direct may feel your impact better, than just looking the state allowance, like we could all do.

The Keys to Producing Meaningful Research and Writing for International Journals

From the Desk of BUTY GLOBAL

Several pieces of research are turned out and being published in various national and international journals on a daily basis. Working on research and then producing it on paper takes a great amount of time and effort. For a scientist, it’s their dream. But with an increasing volume of works coming out over the last few decades, every work doesn’t get the attention that it deserves.
Hence it is important when you write for an international journal, you need to be creative. If your academic work isn’t creative enough, it won’t be noticeable to the traditional publications. Again, creativity is the key to drawing grants for further research. In the vast ocean of talented science works, creativity is the only thing that will make your academic work stand out from others.
However, making academic work interesting can be quite a challenging thing. Writing research is based on facts and findings; generally, people view that as dull and boring. To make it appealing, you can be creative in the following ways:
1) Choose your subject wisely
Choose an out of the world concept which has never been thought of before. You can achieve this by engaging in conversations. Talk to people from diversified fields and origins. A topic from your field of work, itself can be something unique. Engaging in conversations can bring up new ideas in your field or genre of research; you can identify new scope from where you are working.
2) Look hard for errors in the past
Be alert for anomalies and paradoxes, things that are accepted but perhaps should not be. Scientific progress often involves an ability to notice small (often minutely) anomalous events or outcomes. A new idea at first can be problematic as it will break the rules established earlier by experts. But the willingness to probe into related works and critique them logically and scientifically can bring up something creative for your new research work. The idea is to closely study your literature review and find out minor changes that can make your work different from others in the field.
3) Break-free from set rules
It is important to let go of the inhibitions you are confined to. We are structured to live and think under a set pattern of rules. But to be creative we have to look beyond what is obvious and think critically outside the normal hemisphere. To create research which will be appealing to readers, think like a child who views the sky as pink. Get away from the desk. Release yourself from the pressure of guidelines and template of the international journal. Give your brain the incubation period to think afresh on subjects over a cup of coffee, before you proceed with the findings.
4) Read more and more journals
Consult several international journals, both in and outside your area of work to discover new things. Diversified understanding can often give you the right clue which you can adopt in your research.
5) Look beyond the written words
The complete meaning and implication of an idea can never be conveyed through a 6000 words article. When you are reading journals and literature reviews for your inspiration, try to understand the inner meaning beyond the written words; the intention or perhaps a hidden message from the study which you can utilize. Perhaps, the same work could become creative if it was presented differently, like sung or painted or danced to! Who knows!
6) Get inspiration from storytelling
All writings are essentially creative, but with the tightened deadlines, format and pressure of sticking to facts and findings, we often forget the essence of communicating our research to the audience. We have to understand that all readers aren’t essentially scientists. Use metaphors and similes from daily life things to define and compare scientific ideas.
7) Broaden your circle
Associate yourself with creative people who have successfully implemented their ideas. Talk to them, the group with them to know their notions and perspectives.
smile Be stress-free
Stress is the most important factor for inhibiting us from thinking. Be happy. Eat what you enjoy; be surrounded by bright colours, good music and nice fragrance which will boost your brain to think outside the box.

In conclusion, writing for international journals isn’t easy especially if your objective is to cater to a wider audience and maximize the reach of your academic research. The power of creativity can take your work from ordinary to exceptional heights which will make you noticeable as a scientist and a writer. Your work will speak for you and it will be simpler to get funding for the time and effort you put in. So do not hesitate to be creative.

Fact about NYSC Query Letter?

Introduction

NYSC just like any organization have rules called the bye law, has much as the question of writing a query letter is, making sure this laws are follow are given down the organization to PPA been the least of such policing

Depending on the environment you are serving with, but like will describe your PPA can recommend you to be served an NYSC Query Letter which you will collect at the local government (LGI)

what is an NYSC Query letter?

an NYSC query letter like explain is given to a corp member due not obeying the bye law. Certain acts such as lateness, negligence,insubordination or absenteeism could see you get you this, but you can save the situation by apologizing for such mistakes.

below is a sample of an NYSC Query letter

5e3a38918d475

who can serve you an NYSC Query Letter

like explained in the introduction, you can be recommended for a query from your PPA, and dependent on the offense and under who umbrella (Local, Zonal, State or National). Note that this also depend on the gravity of the law you pledged to follow with an oath

Fact about NYSC Query Letter

First thing to note is that your can give you a query as a member of the organisation especially, if you are been paid some more commitment are demanded from you.
This does not equate to an NYSC Query Letter but can lead to them recommending you for one, if you are adamant to not changing, remember this is service and you are not the one been served.

Another Fact about NYSC Query Letter is that it does not automatically means an extension in service or not collecting a discharge certificate which is the ultimate goal than even the allawee. Especially if many of you were ask to pick up a query letter for not too serious offense, for example check the sampled offense above.

We will continue from here with our to answer an NYSC Query letter. If you not register to this platform do, and create your topics and let us get everyone informed.

RE: JSS 2 STUDENT IMPREGNATES CORPS MEMBER

The attention of the National Youth Service Corps, Cross River State has been drawn to a malicious publication making the rounds in the social media, alleging that a Female Corps Member was impregnated by a teenage boy (student) in the state.

To put the records straight, there is nothing as such in Cross River as claimed by the unknown writer. It is only meant to malign the reputation and integrity of the Scheme and the public perception of our Corps Members. The National Youth Service Corps is a reputable organisation that is very proud of her Corps Members because of their high level of discipline and responsibility and therefore can not be involved in such a shameful act.

For the avoidance of doubt, the authorities of NYSC at Local, Zonal and State levels never received any report of such formally or informally.

The said news is the handiwork of fake news hawkers who derive joy in seeking attention or traffic to their websites, at the expense of protecting journalistic code of ethics.

Embarrassingly the originators of the news failed to state the source of the news rather was dwelling on imaginary school, JSS student and Corps Member.
Worthy of note is the fact that, NYSC has a laid down procedure for approaching matters on Corps Discipline and Reward. But as at the time of fielding this rejoinder, no Corps Member in Cross River State is connected with such negative Act.

It will interest the general public to note, that one of the focus of NYSC Orientation programme is that of instilling high sense of discipline and reinforcement of strict moral standards and conduct which subsequently guide their operational behaviour at their various Places of Primary Assignment and their host Communities of service.

While calling on the general public to dismiss and disregard such jaundice report, Management of the Scheme in Cross River State and at the National Directorate Headquarters advises the authors and originators of such callow write up to retract same and henceforth, desist from manufacturing fake news with the intention of deflating the reputation of the NYSC scheme but rather pay attention to the numerous selfless services rendered to Cross River communities by Members of the National Youth Service Corps.

Thank you.
Management.

DISCLAIMER
RE: PAYMENT OF ARREARS TO CORPS MEMBERS

The attention of the Management of the National Youth Service Corps Scheme has been drawn to a false story purported to have emanated from the Director-General of the Scheme, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim to the effect that Corps Members would receive arrears as a fall out of the recent pay raise given to them by the Federal Government which has been roundly appreciated by Corps Members and Nigerians.

Indeed, the fulfillment of the promise of the increment by the Federal Government is borne out of utmost concern for the welfare of our patriotic youths and commencement date is January 2020 as budgeted in the 2020 fiscal year.

Therefore, Corps Members and members of the public are hereby advised to disregard the so - called purported breaking news from the DG NYSC, Brig Gen Shuaibu Ibrahim announcing the payment of various sums of money as arrears to ex - Corps Members of 2018 Batches and serving Corps Members of 2019 Batches.

Kindly verify information from the NYSC official platforms or the State Secretariats nationwide on issues concerning the Corps. Never respond to bogus instructions on phantom sites and sources.

Be rightly guided please.
Thank you.

Management.

DG CLEARS AIR ON CORPS MEMBERS' ALLOWANCE

The Director-General, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim has cleared the air on the amount approved as Corps Members' monthly allowance by the Federal Government in line with the new National Minimum Wage.

He disclosed this while speaking to Corps Members at the NYSC Bauchi State Secretariat during his working visit to the State.

Ibrahim explained that contrary to the various amounts being circulated on the social media, the sum of thirty-three thousand naira had been approved as the new rate.

He also said provision had been made for the new allowance in the year 2020 Budget, adding that payment would commence as soon as funds are released by the appropriate authorities.
Speaking further, he advised the Corps Members to always be security conscious just as he warned against rumour mongering and negative usage of the Social Media.

He admonished them to avoid unauthorized journeys and, when authorised to travel, not to do so at night because of the inherent danger.

This is the conclusion on our series on things you should note and know after NYSC or and as you begin another journey away from clearance and PPA.

If you are yet to follow the series you cna check the last series

Batch 2 COMMON INTERVIEW QUESTIONS FOR GRADUATES

Batch 1 is in the link above,

1. Tell us about yourself? The interviewer is not interested in hearing stories; they simply expect to know your academic and professional achievements, your name and the institution you currently work for. Take a minutes to introduce yourself, and state your recent academic qualification and your relevant experience (if any).

2. Why do you think you are the best candidate? The recruiter expects you to tell them about your professional achievements and the unique skills you possess that will add value to the organization. If you are a Customer Care graduate then you should tell them that you are a good listener and patient; these are the qualities the employer is looking for.

3. What are your weaknesses? The question is not simple as it looks; most candidates go blank when they face this kind of question. Take your time in explaining why you can’t leave the office before you complete a task. You can also inform them how you are quick to trust a person, which in most cases makes you a victim.

4. Where do you see yourself in five years? The employer wants to know whether you are ambitious or you’re the kind of a person who secures a job and then you forget about yourself. Answer the question by stating how you intend to further your studies and grow professionally as you strive to meet your employer’s goals. (It is important to tie your goals to your employer's goals because no employer would be willing to hire and invest in a rookie who will leave their organization in a year or less after they have invested in training the individual)

5. How do friends describe you? The question is testing your personal attributes, when answering it ensure that you don’t over exaggerate. Take the shortest time possible to state the best attribute you possess that you believe will add value to the institution.

6. What do you know about this company? Before you enter the interview room, ensure that you go through the company website to read latest news, company profile, goals, management team, objectives, vision and mission; they will help you answer this question.(where the company is unknown, do your research and be familiar with the business/industry you desire to build your career) The question expects you to briefly describe what you read on their website and not what you imagine of the company.

7. Do you have any question to ask the panel? This is usually the last question that the interview panel asks interviewees; if you fail to ask them questions, you will lose some marks, always have a question to ask no matter what. Ask them whether they have plans to expand their business, whether they support employees to further their studies and how they motivate employees. You can pull a surprise by asking when you can start, it shows confidence.

8. What is your salary expectation? The question is tricky because as a fresh graduate you don’t have a clue what to be paid; simply ask them what they pay others of your level, if they fail to give a satisfactory answer then give them a reasonable range. Ensure you do your research before you go for interview room because you must be asked this question.

Good evening to everyone, let us continue on our cover letters introduction.

In case you don't have the introduction check it

We will continue from there but before that let us have a quick reminder of what we say cover letter is

A cover letter is a letter used in applying for a job position. It tells the employer your achievement(s) and how you can replicate same achievement in his firm if considered for the job.

Therefore in continuation to the list last time.
Cold calling cover letter

  1. Now, we send speculative or cold calling cover letters to firms we are not sure have vacancies but we want to work there. You send such cover letters and then send a follow-up letter three weeks later. The idea is to put yourself in the eyes of the employer.

  2. Cover letters response to job adverts have taken over application letters. It is written to woo an employer that you are the right candidate for the job. Here, you look at the skills they need the candidate to have and tell the employer you can do it. You also tell the employer problems you've solved in the past. It could be when you made your students do well in WAEC during your Youth Service year or when you made a good sales for your former/present firm. Even your social media skills can be brought in by telling your employer that you would use it to project the firm to people.

  3. Cover letters with name dropping is used when you are recommended by someone to a company. On the letter, you will need to state who recommended you and address the letter to the particular person you were told to write. It takes the form of speculative cover letter but only has names stated on it. So in a nutshell, cover letters are to make you sell your skills, so give the employer your best shot.

Ok. I will like to address some interview questions and how to answer them.

  1. MAY WE MEET YOU?

You are not expected to tell them your life history of how you are the last born and related to your village head. All they want to know are your name, educational background and career background. e.g My name is Michael Jacob, a graduate of Mechanical Engineer from University of Lagos and also a career engineer.

  1. WHY SHOULD WE HIRE YOU?

This gives you an opportunity to sell yourself. Tell them about your qualification, experience (if you have) and skills.

I should be hired because I'm academically qualified for the job. I also have the needed experience and skills needed to carry out the task I'm being interview for.

  1. ARE YOU MOBILE?

If you like tell them 'Yes, I have a car' or 'Of course! who doesn't have a phone?'. You are on your own.

What they are simply asking is are you free to relocate from your present location if we employ you?'. If it's possible, simply say 'yes'.

  1. CAN YOU TELL A LIE TO PROTECT THE INTEREST OF THIS FIRM IF EMPLOYED?
    This question is meant to cage you to 'one corner'. I know you all know the song.
    If you say 'yes', it means you can't be trusted. If you say 'no', it means you don't have the interest of the firm at heart. So what do you say?
    Simply Tell them, 'As a professional, I will do anything within my powers to protect the interest of my company'. 'within my powers' is an open statement. That means if you can lie, you will. If you can't lie, you w

  2. HOW MANY BOYFRIENDS/GIRLFRIENDS DO YOU HAVE?

This is a tricky one. Don't go self destructive by telling them,' I have two boyfriends sir, Emeka and Peter. In case, Emeka disappoints me'.
They are not interested in your affairs. This is a 'perfunctory' question meant to probe your disposition. They want to know how sociable you are. So answer this way, Sir; I have many friends and if given the opportunity to work here, I will make sure they do business with this firm.
