Fuzu listened to me. Fuzu knew what I wanted.

“You guys are just awesome. You are such a great team!

I had become totally desperate, disillusioned. Step by step you guided me first in developing my CV, how to pass an interview, etc. I gained the confidence, applied at Cytonn investments and found a job as a financial adviser. I learnt about that vacant position through your site.” Read the email sent to us by Geoffrey who is one of the many proud Fuzu users.

We never overlook such messages from our users. They go beyond giving us a sense of fulfillment by reaffirming our purpose and motivating us to be better at what we do; matching job seekers to unlimited job opportunities and providing resources for career advancement.

We had an opportunity to chat with Geoffrey and here is what he had to say.

How is life at Cytonn so far?

I am enjoying life at Cytonn in my new career as a financial advisor.

As a Financial Advisor, what is a normal day for you like?

My daily life at Cytonn typically involves: - contacting clients and setting up meetings, either within an office environment or at the client's home or business premises, conducting in-depth reviews of the client's financial circumstances, current provision and future aims, completing risk analyses e.t.c.

What are the main challenges you have faced in your search for employment?

Before joining Cytonn, I had worked for a certain bank for five years, as a Direct Sales Representative. During this time, things had become routine. No new challenges, no promotion despite having received several awards in recognition of my excellent performance. That’s what prompted me to leave. Life became so hard during a 3 months’ period of serious job hunt. During three instances, I was invited for interviews but unfortunately flopped. My qualifications and experience did not match most of the open positions I came across.

How has Fuzu been instrumental in helping you achieve your career goals?

All this was happening until I found Fuzu. Fuzu helped me to properly design my CV, matched my skills, qualifications and experience to the right available opportunities and always sent me prompts whenever such opportunities were available! In short, Fuzu listened to me. Fuzu knew what I wanted. I got encouraged to apply to as many opportunities as possible on the Fuzu platform.

I remember having gone for an interview after my first job application through the platform, exactly 4 days from the date I made the application. Unfortunately, I flopped because I lacked the proper skills for attending interviews. Coincidentally, Fuzu sent me an email prompt on the very day, about a course on how to answer interviews questions. I did the course plus so many others on topics such as body language during interviews, frequently asked questions at interviews and how to answer them, etc.

What advice would you give to someone looking to build a career?

I would highly recommend Fuzu to anybody who is looking to build a career.

What makes Fuzu stand out from other platforms?

Other platforms only send a list of all available job openings in the world. I had also tried them and never succeeded. Others even refer you to job application links that never exist. Fuzu gets to your level; understands you, tells you what you want to hear, sends you literature that you would want to read.

In what ways would you still use Fuzu now that got a job?

Just because I got a job doesn't mean an end to using Fuzu. The platform offers educative and useful information on how to advance and progress in your career, proper office relationships, how to ask for salary increments, etc. Who knows? I might as well want to switch from my current job to a better one.

You happened to successfully get a job, what do you think made you stand out that you would advise other job seekers to do?

Persistence, willingness to learn and faith is all it takes.

If you had the opportunity to speak to a career coach, what’s that burning question that you would ask?

How do I know my right job?

After how long should I request a promotion or a salary increment?

What benchmarks indicate growth in a career?
