“EMPLOYERS are always looking for a productive candidate that will inject new skills into the work environment.”

This was one of the tips that was shared with the youth at a youth function held at the Greytown Civic Hall recently.

According to a representative from the Department of Labour, Nondumiso Mbatha, a candidate looking for a job must be able to impress the employer.

“We are quite aware that some of you want to go to a job interview to impress the employer, but you must be presentable,” said Mbatha, who advised women who were interviewing for a job interview to dress properly and avoid wearing short skirts that expose their private parts.

“When you go for a job interview, the employer needs to see if you have the necessary skills required.

“Also, the panel is expecting you as the candidate to answer all the questions. Sometimes candidates in a job interview provide responses that are too short. You need to talk until the employer stops you. This shows that you are well prepared for the interview.

“I understand that English is not our language, therefore it is crucial to be fully prepared for the interview.

“Doing research about the company and the job is important,” Mbatha said.
