Interview Tips and Tricks
Make a lasting impression on us and our clients to stand out and get chosen for interview.
Research the Company before the interview to prepare some questions about them and their role. Be smart in appearance and show up early. Be polite at reception and shake hands firmly with your interviewer.
During the interview, look interested and sit up straight and show your interest by nodding and keeping eye contact.
Take your time and answer all questions and tell them if you want the job and why! Be brave and ask them if they believe you would be a good fit with their company and when they are making a decision.
CV Advice to get found and chosen
Just because you've got a CV doesn't mean it's the best representation of you... Try reading it through the eyes of a recruiter who sees 8,000 CVs a month - now do you stand out?
Don't be a lazy job hunter, show your personality on your CV and cover letters and make sure that your social media accounts are either locked down or show you to be a fabulous potential employee - we check them!
Keep your CV punchy, it's a snippet, not your life story and put your achievements on there for each job (not just what you did whilst there). The most recent job needs to be at the top, the working backwords. Be inventive (we once received a CV that looked like a Facebook profile, they got the job) and make sure you SPELL CHECK it and get someone else to do so too!
