African and multinational companies have difficulties identifying the right job candidates, among approximately 900 applications, received for every job advertisement. There are more job candidates than available jobs in most African countries. Job candidates regularly apply with false qualifications just to increase their chances of getting invited to a job interview.
The majority of African job candidates are insufficiently aware of minimum qualifications for the local employment market or what it means to be considered an attractive job candidate. Furthermore, job candidates, often have high costs when applying for a job such as referral fees for personnel agencies, irrespective of whether the agencies can find a job or not. Costs for printing paper, taking photographs, notary fees, postage, etc.
