Hiring managers - are you selling yourself at interview? You should be!
There’s always a lot of talk about how an interviewee should approach an interview but how many hiring managers stop to think about how they are performing? Are you thinking enough about how you come across in an interview?
With good candidates at a premium in Exeter at the moment, if you want the pick of the applicants/interviewees you need to think about your interview style and performance.
How to prepare a presentation, for an interview.
It’s very common to be asked to prepare and give a presentation, during your interview, as part of a recruitment process these days. Your prospective employer is looking for evidence, in addition to what’s discussed during the interview, that you are the right person for the job. For them, of course, that’s a mix of work related skills as well other more subjective things like how you come across and whether you’re the right person to represent the company.
The skills shortage in Exeter and how, as an employer, you should tackle it.
There’s no getting away from the fact that there’s a skill shortage in Exeter. We have been a fast growing city for some time and that coupled with a low level of unemployment, and some uncertainty with regards to Brexit, means that the recruitment of certain skill sets isn’t as easy as it used to be with less people actively looking for new jobs.
How to deal with a long notice period!
Up until the point you want to leave your current job your long notice period is a great security blanket and a good reminder of how valuable/important you are to your current employer. However, the moment you want to change jobs you realise how restricting it is as you are faced with a long wait to escape your current job in order to move to a new challenge with a new employer.
The candidate experience, it's personal!
We often hear from job seekers that register with us that we are a 'breath of fresh air' in comparison to other recruitment agencies in Exeter, in terms of the service we offer. This delights us!
We feel it's essential that our company has a reputation for great customer service in an industry that isn't always known to look after job seekers as well as it could.
