Job Interviews

  • We all get nervous, but excessive nerves before an interview can mean the difference between a good interview and a bad one. So how can you minimise your interview nerves?
  • A large proportion of major companies now use automated application filtering - so how can you get past the robot gatekeeper when you apply for a job?
  • Eye Contact During an Interview. This is equally important to both candidates and recruiters!
  • A brag file is simply a file where you keep evidence of your achievements! It was originally used mainly by sales candidates, but it’s equally useful for everyone now.
  • You've got your interview arranged, but you don't want to blow it on a simple mistake, so check out these mistakes to avoid!
  • If you've been through the interview and the recruiter says that inevitable question...Do you have any questions? - You don't want to be sitting there like a lemon, and mumble no. That won't win any prizes and certainly won't get you the job! Have some prepared…..
  • No matter how desperate you might be to a get a new job, telling lies during your interview won’t get you anywhere.
  • If the nation’s recruiters received a pound for every time they’d interviewed a candidate that looked good on paper but disappointed in practice, there’d currently be an awful lot of recruiters in the process of relocating to the Caribbean.
  • Anyone who's been in sales will know the importance of the handshake. However, the handshake is equally important in your job interview; after all, you're selling yourself and need to make a good impression. The handshake is literally the first contact you have with your interviewer and is steepe...
  • They might be obvious but you will be amazed at how many candidates do not do this prep!
