Thanks Pindula for flighting those advertisements. My only concern with most recruitment exercises of parastatal organizations is that their person specifications for managerial positions always seem like they would be a paraphrasing of the curriculum vitae of someone within the organization. To avoid in-breeding, thereby affording cross fertilization of ideas, amongst those who join top echelon of these organizations, emphasis at those levels of recruitment should be on:a) educational and professional qualifications which ought to be specific non-negotiables(as was done there through requiring candidates to hold those particular degrees) and b) transferrable strategy formulation and implementation skills and not necessarily a d strictly restricting the pool of candidates to capture just those who, judging from the wording of the advertisement, could probably be doing those duties already maybe in an acting capacity or something like that.

Mabasa iwaya anenge akotopindwa advertising is just formality because pane anenge atori pa acting you find that anenge atori the most potential candidate for the job , I personally don't think kuti isu vanenge varikubva from other companies we can merge, basically these are internal vacancies, maonero angu

@ Adv Slamey: You raised potent points there. Little wonder one gets no response at all after responding to advertisements where they would be meeting all requirements of said job advertisement. Why don't they just advertise internally then if their intentions are to elevate those who would already be in their employ? Who would they be trying to fool by giving false impressions of having invited external candidates when the wording of their advertisements clearl show that they would be tailor made for some people who would already be doing those jobs in the very same organizations? There is a Commission (exact name deliberately left vague here) that advertised directorship vacancies last year whereat they were asking for undergraduate degree holders which, in spite of having a Master's degree in addition to the required Bachelor's degree, as well as appropriate experience, I was never invited to interviews. I hope that will change soon. For these senior posts, why don't they capture all crucial details of those who would have applied and have those available on some platform which could be assessed by auditors (when they would be doing their audits) as well as each individual applicant (to ensure that their details are correctly captured) before interviews are conducted? That way, though not foolproof, all candidates would know that their application was received and perhaps considered. They could also each be given a unique application reference number which they could use to log in to the screening platform which would enable each candidate to view other applicants' profiles (without necessarily disclosing said applicants' identities), e.g. Candidate No: 001: BSc in ... graduated with a 2.1 from University of Zimbabwe...years experience in...etc.
