Work experience is admittedly a major requirement to securing a great job quickly and for a country that statistically has one of the highest unemployed and underemployed figures globally, emphasizes the gap that needs to be filled. Digital Bananas is taking initiatives despite the evident grim stats to provide empowerment in the digital world for those who dare.  

Speaking with the CEO of Digital Bananas, Keji Giwa after a free session in their Lagos DigiHub on Saturday, he spoke a great deal about the increasing role of data in today’s world.

Hi Keji

I have some good news for you

But I will like to be anonymous

I applied for a Digital BA role from Nigeria and got a job in the UK.

Modupe Yusuf is my mentor. I’m not sure if she has mentioned this yet to you

I just got a call from the recruiter a few hours ago, telling me I was successful, but you know they still need to do checks and all which would take about 6 weeks.

Oh I didn’t mention the company

It’s HSBC.

I explained to them that I’ve been working remotely (from Nigeria) for DBT from: May 2016 to March 2017.

God is awesome Keji!

Thank you. You don’t know how excited I am right now

For me it was really about working passionately on all the projects I was involved in, volunteering for tasks, always being eager to suck in any knowledge from videos on the work experience, learning from more people, attending training sessions etc. I also paid for the Digital Transformation training *eWorkExperience. and it was very helpful in my interview.

I would advise those in the UK and Nigeria (especially Nigeria) to target international companies in the UK and apply directly to them. It doesn’t matter where you apply from, as long as you have the talent they are looking for.

Of course also participate actively in projects and try to be on as many projects as you can because it will broaden your knowledge and skills. Also the DX training is a must. Companies are really looking for candidates with the digital transformation experience

Above all, we should always trust God because he makes the impossible possible. I can’t believe he has brought me to this point and I’m so grateful

In my phone interview, I was asked competency based questions on conflict management, communication, customer delivery, innovation etc. I had to give answers based on scenarios working on different projects in dbt. I was also asked technical based questions on requirements prioritisation, defect management, working in an agile environment and how I would improve their banking services- this was where my knowledge on DX came in handy.

Then my face to face interview was pretty much focused on my personality and how I work in teams. I also gave examples where I could.

I really think the DBT framework impressed them and all the tools we use for requirements engineering and agile development may have done this for me. Also the manager who interviewed me said she saw defect management on my CV and she was eager to know more from me.

thank you
