MNJconsult, a recruitment generalist setup are breaking new grounds in Nigeria with the kickoff of their APPLICANT TRAINING COURSE program.
The Idea behind this training is to bridge the huge gap in Nigeria between an individual been a job seeker and ACTUALLY been employable. As you already may know, the truth is not that there aren't jobs at all in Nigeria but that for even the few that are there, qualified/suitable candidates aren't available to fill them.
It is not enough to have a degree any more or to work for working sake. The growing and developing job sector of Nigeria is moving from personnel management to human resources management which implies the shift from "mere staffing" of companies to progressively new "talent acquisition" hence, the need that applicants seeking entry into employment be more than just "paper" holding, robot-like personnel but technically sound talents of resourceful, well composed and problem solving capabilities. It is now little about what the hiring firm can do for you as opposed to what you can do for the hiring firm.
In this regard, we thought it wise to bring about a training program focused on making individuals like you much better applicants: less of job seekers but more of candidates. A job seeker is one of many people with the assumption of been qualified to fill the vacancy of any particular firm whereas a candidate is an individual screened and found technically sound in knowledge and proficiency to fill a specific vacancy within their available skill set.
The modules for this program has been tailored to cover all aspects of the recruitment life-cycle of firms and the schedule can be tailored to suit your needs and as well, your most convenient approach to both undergoing the training and learning in general.
