  • Start-up: Promising, early-stage partnerships that need support to consolidate the partnership or test the feasibility of innovative approaches.
  • Scale-up: Partnerships that are already engaged in promising, business-driven green growth innovations and need support to scale up and accelerate their impact.

Funding Information

  • Partnerships in the start-up phase may apply for up to USD 100,000. P4G funding should represent a maximum of 75 percent of the partnership’s budget. Partnerships in the scale-up phase may apply for up to USD 1 million, with P4G funding a maximum of 50 percent of the partnership’s budget. P4G funding is for a period of one to two years (12 – 24 months), depending on the needs of the partnership.

  • Country Focus: Start-up partnership activities must benefit one or more of the P4G partner countries that are eligible for P4G funding: Bangladesh, Colombia, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Kenya, Mexico, South Africa, and Vietnam. P4G has a strong preference for scale-up partnerships whose activities benefit these countries, as well, but will also consider exceptional scale-up partnership applications that benefit other ODA-eligible developing countries.

Interview Big Things – The top 20 things you should not do in an interview

;

Poor personal appearance: always wear a nice suit (and tie for men) even if everyone ;in the office is wearing jeans and flip-flops. It goes a long way.

Forget to close: ;you are interviewing for a sales job. You have to ask for next steps at the end of the interview.

Show up unprepared: ;review How to prepare for your interview. ; Make sure you 5-10 strong questions to ask.
Too much “I”: talk in terms of ‘we’; it shows you are a team player.

Ask no questions: ;if you don’t ask questions at the end of the interview it will appear that you are disinterested.

Show up late: ;the hiring manager will think “if he/she shows up late to the interview will they show up late to a customer meeting as well?” Arrive 10 minutes early.

Chew Gum: ;don’t do it.

Speak poorly of past employers: ;even if you had a bad boss or work experience, don’t speak of it. Keep the energy positive.

Lie: ;The world is a small place. If you lie about something the hiring manager can likely find out by reaching out to your past employer or boss.

Monetary based questions: ;don’t ask them about the salary, vacation days, perks and benefits. ; We [Gogohire] can find out for you.

Acting too relaxed: ;the interview should be taken seriously. If you are too laid back the interviewer will question your professionalism.

Too much talking: ;The conversation should be like a free-flowing tennis match. Don’t hog the ball and turn the interview into a monologue.

Bad eye contact: ;the easiest way to build trust with someone is by looking them in the eye.
Not turning off your cell phone: turn off your cell phone and put it away.

Asking poor questions: ;the interviewer will think that you didn’t prepare or commonly ask bad questions.

No follow up email: ;No matter what you need to follow up. It’s the easiest way to leave a bad taste in someone’s mouth.

Lack of energy: ;sales is a high endurance sport. Come to the interview enthusiastic and passionate.
TMI (Too much information): the interviewer isn’t your therapist. Don’t share your deepest secrets and personal information too early.

Rambling: ;keep your interview answers short and sweet. Answer the question the interviewer is asking and nothing more, unless requested.
