Nail that Job Interview!

Research concludes that the key to a great performance at a Job Interview is: Preparation, Structure and Practice.

Are you in the process of applying for a new job or have you been invited to interview

If you are then I can help you get that job!

 

HR Professionals have a structured and clearly developed approach to recruitment and selection of employees, they must, as 

the employment market and legislation demands it. If you understand this structure, then you are off to a flying start. 

 

Everything you need to get that job is provided for you. In fact so much of it that its difficult to see the wood from 

the trees, the job advert, the job description, the application form, the person specification, the company values, who 

you report to what you will be responsible for and more!

 

Therefore your first task, a critical task, is to write or update your CV.  For many, it’s time to hit ‘Google’! and within minutes 

you are saturated with so much information, ideas, formats and advice all riddled with adverts and American style ‘resumes’. 

What do I include, how far back do I go, what are they looking for, what is a degree equivalent, how do I explain my time out, 

why did I leave that job, do I provide a cover letter and how is that different?  Questions, dilemmas and more questions!!!!

 

If you get over this hurdle then it’s off to interview and suddenly you’re faced with an interview in a few weeks. It’s 

been years! what are they looking for, what is a competence based interview, how does an assessment centre work 

and perhaps you also have to make a presentation:- back to ‘Google’ !!
