Preparing For The Interview: For Young Africansadmin
Dress Professionally and make sure you are well groomed. Dressing professionally is vital for an interview success. Shorts, T-shirts and sneakers are never appropriate for a job interview
2. Prepare your portfolio
Always prepare your portfolio ahead of time and practice using it so that you know where everything is located
Practice your answers, but have an open mind so as to avoid making your answers rehearsed and focus on hitting the main points
Before going for an interview make sure you do your research on the company and position that you are interviewing for
Any professional is always ready for business. Always bring any materials you may need including resume, cover letter, motivation letter, business card, portfolio and a notebook/pen to job down questions if need be
So many young people in Africa still have problem managing their time. Be on time, allow for extra travel time in case you get lost or run into traffic. I will advice you to always be 30 minutes early.
