Job seekers must internalise behaviours, says Wanderi

In a Facebook post, Wanderi said that while industrial attachments, internships, apprenticeship and pupilage are the fastest ways of landing a dream job, knowing how to seduce a job is important.

"You must know how to seduce that job so that you are retained at the end of your attachment. Every organisation has its culture, values and doctrines," he said.
"You must learn, internalise and align your behaviour, language, dressing and grooming to the company's culture," he added.

Why do interns don't get employed?

According to the lawyer, some people are missing out on jobs during their period of attachment or internship.

"If the leadership of an organisation are addressed formally as sir or madame or with their professional technical qualifications such as doctor, engineer, professor, QS, CPA, counsel and so on, learn to adapt quickly," he said.
"Wear official attire; suit and tie if that is what the staff of the organisation do. If you are in a non-hierarchy company, align yourself accordingly. Etiquette and protocol are not taught in universities and colleges, but they are instinctively acquired skills that are used to gauge your attitude and potential to fit in the Organisation," Wanderi emphasised.

" Force yourself to, if you must" he said.
