"To be prepared is to be professional."

Looking for a new job, applying for a new role, changing organisations - these are important decisions that take time and take careful consideration. And, most of all, preparation. It is a basic principle of the selection process, but the more prepared you are, the more you are likely to impress the interviewer or assessor. The more you do that, the more chance you have of pursuing the career you want.

Research the Organisation

It is the easiest thing to do and it shows a desire and commitment that will always impress a recruiting manager. We can help you understand a business and the role within it. At the same time, look at the company's websites, corporate literature, annual report and do some research of your own.

Travel Arrangements

We will make sure you know who you are meeting, where and when. Remember to double-check arrangements and plan your journey well in advance of setting out. Allow yourself plenty of time to get there. It's much better to be early and prepared than to be late and flustered.

Dress to Impress

We can advise you of what to wear for any particular interview. It is always important to feel comfortable in what you are wearing - and also to feel that you are presenting yourself in the best possible light. You can rarely be too formal for an interview.

Information to hand

Make sure you have all the information you need - such as CV or application form, organisation details, location map and any questions you want to ask.

The Interview Itself

Remember to arrive early; but if you are going to be late, contact us or the client direct to make sure everyone knows what is happening. Ask for the interviewer at reception. When you meet the interviewer, be sure to look at him or her in the eyes, introduce yourself and shake hands. First impressions count.

In the interview, make sure you wait to be offered a seat before sitting down. Place your chair a few inches from where the chair meets the desk. Sit back but don't slouch. You can always take notes during the interview, as this suggests you are interested and engaged.

Questions can at times be tricky. But don't ramble or say the first thing that comes into your head. Wait, consider your response and give a structured reply. Try not to interrupt the interviewer, and be tactful about previous employers. When you get the opportunity, ask questions about the role and the business, the opportunities and the support - anything that is important in helping you to make the best decision for your career.

When it has finished, be sure to thank the interviewer for his or her time. If you are interested in the role, indicate that you are open to another meeting or interview.

Afterwards, contact us and give us feedback on the interview and how you feel about the role. This is a good time to raise any more questions, as we can always go back and ask them.

Counter Offer Advice

Many of the people we find for our clients often get hit with a counter offer from their current employers. That is a natural reaction from a business: nobody wants to lose a good and valued individual. It is important that if this happens, that you are clear about what you are going to do and how you are going to respond to the situation. It is never advisable to go through an interview just to gain a counter offer from your current employer. If you don't want to move, you are better off talking to your employer first about your issues and needs. Remember, the majority of people who stay because of a counter offer soon find themselves looking for or considering another job. The circumstances and motivations for leaving haven't changed; they are just receiving a bit more money.
