Activity 1A When you take a break from reading, visit or phone three or more old relatives or family friends (over fifty years old) who are either working or had worked before. Ask them how and why they got their first job. Ask leading questions such as: How did you get your first job? How did you know about the job? Did you have a relative or friend working in the same organisation? Did you have the required qualification? Did you have relevant experience for the same job you were hired for? Where you ever promoted? How were you promoted, on merit or favour?
Out of the total you would have interviewed, find out how many were hired for the benefit of the organisation, and how many were hired for personal reasons.
