Another job scam….…..Stay warned!

Our readers and job applicants,

There is an organization that has been advertising jobs with us and calling applicants for an interview only to ask them for money. This company (NGO) goes by the name (CIN International-Kenya) which purports to be the local chapter of Children In Need (CIN) International, a leading global independent children charity organization aiming at making a real difference in the lives of vulnerable children).

As a prudent company, we feel that it is our obligation to inform the public that this are a bunch of conmen who are out there to swindle hard earned money from Kenyan job seekers. As we have insisted before, please do not pay someone any money to give you a job. Ask yourself why they don’t deduct from your first salary if it were genuine. Moreover a good employer pays for any costs incurred by prospective employees prior to employing them.

Tips on how to prepare for an interview.

When you get that very important call, especially if you have been jobless or are straight from campus/college, your heart will skip a beat. Getting an invite to an interview itself does not guarantee a job but at least it is one step in the office. When you get an invite to attend an interview, this is the point sat which you choose whether to get the job or not and even after the interview process depending on the type of interview (watch out for an article on types of interviews and how to tackle them), trust me you will know whether you nailed it or no.

Some time back after campus, I got a call for an interview at CfC offices at Mamlaka Road and trust me I went there overdressed with high expectations only to find out that I was over qualified for the job so whether I went there in sandals I will have nailed it. Your preparation for an interview is very important because it determines your behaviour during the interview period. A good example occurred when I was in my fourth year sometimes back and we went for an aptitude test for KPMG. This was basically a written test and trust me very many people came to the interview site dressed in black suits and ties. This is an example of overdressing for an interview, in cases like the aptitude test especially written, please dress smart casual (dress down) but don’t dress down too much especially for the ladies. (We will tackle the dress code next time)

You are invited for an interview...What next?....Prepare for the worst

Job application can be a daunting task and once you get lucky to receive a call from a prospective employer inviting you for an interview, a lot goes through your mind but I can bet one of them is the questions that you expect. The common ones possibly that you have googled will be, ‘can you tell us about yourself’, ‘what are your strongest points and weaknesses’ and all those questions that you probably have mastered and memorised structured answers. Assume a situation where you have been called for an interview in a hotel.

A friend of mine was called by PricewaterhouseCoopers for a partner’s interview at Fairview Hotel near the Israel embassy. The first thought that went through his mind was that these were conmen trying to swindle his hard earned pennies from the KRA where he was employed then. Long story short, he got the job but after a very finger biting interview. The worst that can happen is when an interview is being carried out while having lunch, at an opportune moment the interviewer throws a question at you when you have had a big bite of that steak, they can monitor your eating habits (are you taking a lot of food or are you pretending to eat a small portion). The topic for lunch should be for another day.
