12 Days of Job Hunting

Posted in interview-tips

Wednesday, January 4th, 2017

On the eleventh day of job hunting my recruiter said to me…

Be prepared for tests

Be polite to everyone

What are your career goals?

Show enthusiasm

What’s your biggest achievement?

Know your strengths and weaknesses

Spring clean your social media

Give goOOOod examples

Research the company in detail

A suit or smart clothing to make the best first impression

A map to plan my journey

And a clear up to date CV


More and more interviews will contain tests, whether it is a test to assess computer skills, spelling or grammar, typing speed or prioritising skills, whatever the reason, don’t be put off when asked to do it.  Your reaction to being asked, the way you handle pressure and your results may all be used in order to determine your suitability for the position.
