‘Get new shoes and stay away from garlic’ — Tweeps give Tito Mboweni job interview advice
Former finance minister Tito Mboweni’s timeline was flooded with advice this week after he shared that he was preparing for a “job interview”.
The former minister did not share what position he was being interviewed for but mentioned he was asked for his CV, fingerprints and certificates.
“Job interviews. So today I was preparing for a job interview. OK. They want my CV, certificates and fingerprints before the interview! What? I thought everybody knows me. Nope. Stand in line, buddy! Certificates, fingerprints and CV. Next week, interview!”
Some tweeps said they were confident Mboweni would do a great job as long as the position does not require his cooking skills.
Others jokingly told him to stay away from his favourite ingredient, garlic, and a few advised the former minister to get a new pair of shoes.
“Look presentable, Uncle Tits. You can ask Tshepo Tsala to plug you with a nice pair of shoes. Cut your hair. Smile, show them those round cheeks. But — very, very important — don’t mention that you cook,” quipped one user.
Here's a glimpse into some of the hilarious responses:
here’s some interview tips:— Don Petty Cash (@iamkoshiek) January 26, 2022
- don’t tell them you love cooking like a castaway on survivor
- invest in a decent pair of shoes
- don’t tell them you still own a cheque book
- at least try & read one article on crypto & NFTs
- don’t tell them you’re growing drugs in your garden
Stay away from garlic for at least a week before you go to your interview.— Scapegoat (@AndiMakinana) January 26, 2022
