Quote of the Day: Be not thou far from me, O LORD:  O my strength, make haste thee to help me .-Psalm 22:19. Today I am taking you on a step by step guide on how to make a successful video call or online interview based on my own personal experience. Disclaimer : I am not a video call interview expert, but I am a HR professional. As schools and most offices are gradually reopening, more firms are recruiting. Some people are new to the world of video call interviews, and I created this step by step guide post to help them be less anxious about their online/video call interview.  You are probably here because you scaled through the first round and secured yourself an interview.

A fool uttereth l all his mind: but a wise man keepeth m it in till afterwards. -Proverbs 29:11 KJV Hey guys! Nowadays we are all working from home, and I've had to adapt to a productive routine working from home. I find myself waking up at 5 am, which according to some experts is a healthy morning routine . It's indeed a welcome change, and I've learnt to make the most of my extra awake time. In this blog post I am sharing my 5 am morning routine with you, which some months ago would have had me rolling with laughter. I try my best to maximize every minute of the day, and get more work done. It also helps that the sun rises pretty early here at 4 am sometimes, and other times at minutes past 5 am. Personally, from my experience I think the secret to gettingup early is sleeping early. 5 AM: Wake up, and lay in bed for a bit. I like to dress my bed once I get out of it, it keeps me calm and organized . On some days I drink my lemon and water, on other days I make s

Dear Law Student 4 || Life Tips for Law School Students by Chukwuemeka Ginikanwa

Hi everybody, welcome to this weeks post! You can check out last week's post if you missed it here . This week, one of my favorite writers (I promise I'm not fanning out) Chukwuemeka is contributing. I met him while I was a university student. Emeka reminds me of Chimamanda and Achebe . He writes with such finesse, and his talent is hard to miss. I hope you enjoy what school was like for him. Enjoy!  I basically slept and woke up and university was over. All of a sudden, the memories became very faint. Things I thought I had achieved became pale. Nothing. They tasted like ash in my mouth. Final year at the University of Nigeria came with rather too many struggles. Finance was very tight. There were classes that I hardly understood what they were for. There was a Project to write. The deadline was close by and I had no laptop and of course, no money to use a Business Centre. Then they released the exam time table with quizzes in between. It was a mad house in my he

Happy New Month! Dear Law Student 2: My Law School Experience

Hey guys! How are you doing? What'your week looking like? Personally, I can finally tick " Visit Ibadan " off my buck list. In last weeks post  here  my former roommate Chidera discussed some of her experiences as a student of the Nigerian Law school.  This week she shares her experience with her law school roommates, her study pattern, fellowship and so on. Continued from last week. ... it became very necessary. We had been pre-forwarded our task for the day. After the morning session of lectures, we went on a break and came back for the afternoon session to solve the task. This session was handled by Mr Kanu, a very brilliant lecturer who added humor to his teaching. Each group came out to present and answer questions. How this process went varied. If Mr Kanu was the one asking questions, then you had to be ready to give your 100 because his questions were brain twisting. This was basically the routine for the 17 weeks of lectures.  Tuesday was for civil litig
