Interesting

Listened to the Africa podcast and found it to be incredibly insightful and interesting. Never realised that doing business in Africa can be so different to business in Europe or America. Looking forward to the next one.

Thanks NES for your tips :) very helpful to hear from recruiters themselves what they like and dislike about CV's.
