“Interview Etiquette 101: My Personal Experience As A Recruiter”

Use A Professional Email Address

I don’t about other Recruiters, but for me, a stupid email address will never earn an invite from me.

What the heck are, Chizzybaby@gmail.com, Zainab4luv@yahoo.com? Seriously, these ain’t email anyone seriously looking for job should be associating with.

Personally, I prefer emails with the applicants’ full name or first name.

Try as much as possible not to use numbers in your email address, only when necessary.

Something like this is manageable, LekanAzeez86@gmail.com but Lekan86@gmail.com is unacceptable to me.

Officiallekan@gmail.com, IamLekan@gmail.com, LekanOfficial@gmail.com are all acceptable to me.

Don’t Attach Your Cover Letter

Lol.

What I am just trying to say here is that your Cover Letter shouldn’t come as a Word Doc attachment. Send it as an email, with the position you are applying as a subject.

Believe me, most Recruiters don’t open that attachment. I know many who don’t, I myself inclusive.

The first paragraph of your Cover Letter should be able to sell you, but when you attach your cover letter you would lose that opportunity.

Take a look at this paragraph I copied from a recent cover letter:

I am very interested in the Bleep Bleep position you recently advertised. I believe that my strong educational background and extensive experience in Bleep Bleep make me an appropriate candidate for this position.

As you can see in the enclosed Résumé,

Believe me, the guy sold himself at the second paragraph, that I had to rush to his CV. Now I paid detailed attention to every single word on that CV. It was an impressive CV.

I sent him invite and jotted down his name. I can’t wait to meet him.

I don’t know about other Recruiters, but I place much value on applications that offer me the opportunity to read the Cover Letter without downloading or opening any file.

Learn To Acknowledge Invites Properly

Seriously, if I send my invites, I will never ask you to acknowledge them like many Recruiters do. But if I fail to get your invite 24 hours to the date of the interview, you won’t be cleared for the interview.

It is something you should do without being asked. Anyway I stopped asking applicants for their acknowledgment when I got 2 silly acknowledgments from 2 unserious dudes.

The first one was:

Ok, I will be there

The second one was:

I won’t come because I am living in Abuja.

I didn’t clear the first one for the interview and so he didn’t see his name on the Clearance List.

The second dude just lost out because we would be recruiting for one company for the same position in Kaduna and that opening comes with an accommodation

I would have him about it if he had acknowledged my invite properly. If he had consented, since I was in possession of his CV already, I would have transferred him automatically to that opening and forward his CV to our Recruiter there.

Imagine, a top Recruiter referring an applicant. You know what that means.

Good CV just became useless because of useless acknowledgement.

Many of you might be wondering what a Clearance List is.

This is a compilation of all the names of the successful Applicants. It shows their name and position applied for. All they need to do is just sign and enter the time.

We noticed that a lot of job seekers are gate crashing out interviews without been invited. So we devised that means to check them.

Let me give you an expo. A lot of companies are not using this Clearance List but rather Attendance List.

So monitor any company you want to work for, on the day of their interview, just dress well, go there and sign in. They will collect your CV at the venue and interview you as well. If you are successful, you would be employed.

But for us, NEVER!!!
