Specialist Interview

Midrand (South Africa)

I applied in-person and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Telkom SA.

Interview Details – Most positions are filled internally by means of internal post advertising, massive career movement in rank and position is available and this will take a employ upwards in rank but could also be a position at the same level in a other section what could help with personal and career development. The important thing to remember is to regularly check the vacancies.

The positions not filled internally are advertised in newspapers. This might be an entry level or top management position. If it is an entry level position then see it as a stepping stone to get a foot in the door because opportunities is endless. For positions filled external, please follow the process specified, apply for all positions that you are qualified for and are interested in individually, do a cover letter for each separately - his will greatly enhance your changes.

Should you be contacted for an interview, be honest and friendly.
