General Questions to expect at the “Second Chance” Interview Session
Why did you miss the Interview the first time?

State the truth as the panel would know if you should lie.
Please tell us something about yourself
My name is Francis Babadie. I graduated from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology with a second class lower division in 2015. Between that time and now, I have successfully completed my National Service, where I served as the District NASPA Secretary. I possess a strong sense of dedication to every work I do and I am most passionate about my country Ghana and helping it to become better.
What do you know about NABCO?
This question seeks to find out how much you know about the programme.
The Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) programme is a government initiative to address graduate unemployment to solve social problems.
The focus of the initiative will be solving public service delivery in health, education, agriculture, technology, governance and drive revenue mobilization and collection.
Government is seeking to employ 100,000 graduates in solving public service delivery in health, education, agriculture, technology, governance and drive revenue mobilization and collection. All trainees will be paid a monthly stipend of GHS 700.
You can continue by stating the objectives of the programme:
- Provide temporary employment to unemployed graduates
- Improve skills and employability for the transition from programme to permanent employment
- Improve public service delivery
- Improve government revenue mobilization
- To provide needed infrastructure to improve access to basic public services
You applied for (your chosen module). Why this module?
Tell the interviewer you have a passion for the module and want to work there because you also have the skills.
Example: As a young person, I have always wanted to be a doctor but due to financial constraints, I couldn’t take up that field of study. My main aim in life is to help people, especially the sick and that was why I went to the Pantang Nursing Training School.
As I am currently not working, I can’t realise that aim of helping people, so choosing Heal Ghana Module has given me the chance to do what I have always loved and studied for – to nurse and care for people.
What do you expect to gain out of this temporary role?
Let them know you are not in for the money but for skills as well.
From the NABCO website, it is clear that the programme will take 3 years. I also understand that during the time, I will gain skills and experience, and I am very interested in getting those, especially as I look forward to getting fully employed in the future.
What has your Job Search Experience been like?
Be truthful and tell them about some problems you faced while getting employed if any.
After completing the University of Ghana, I had my National Service in the Central Region. It has been difficult getting a job even though I adopted both online and offline searches. Therefore, when I heard about NABCO, I decided to apply as I will not only be working, but I will also gain skills.
