The 234Finance Mentor-Matchup Challenge is an initiative poised to bridge the practical knowledge gap between successful entrepreneurs or career-driven professionals, and the younger generation.
This video highlights the October session that was held with Isioma Coker, a Human Resource professional and Africa Marketing lead at Shell Nigeria.
In the video, Isioma offers practical advice to the mentees about putting yourself in the job market and how to recruit as a startup.
Here are some key points she highlighted:
1. Networking is key, particularly networking with people in your industry of interest.
2. Fear is a good thing because it keeps you on your toes and drives innovation.
3. As a startup, it is important to hire people who are both passionate and talented.
4. Whatever it is you choose to pursue, do it wholeheartedly and accept that it might fail.
