Job Recruitment Process: My Most Recent Personal Experience With Oral Interviews

Who needs to read this? I think everybody should. Maybe you are still studying in school to gain B.Sc. or post-graduate qualifications, then you would certainly need to apply for a job at a point in time – except you are Dangote or Otedola’s son or daughter- you certainly need to read this to the end.
So, I had this wonderful job interview experience at this top Nigerian commercial bank and only going to share because I got a feedback. Though the feedback didn’t come directly, it came from a ‘connect’ who I got to meet later, who then had to do the background running and came back with the feedback.

Experience is the best teacher!
I have various job recruitment processes experiences over the years, fr…
