WRITING A
GOOD CV

First impressions count – and your CV will determine the first impressions that prospective employers form of you. It’s vital you get it right because a good CV will ensure you get noticed and ultimately secure you an interview.

INTERVIEW
PREPARATION

Having reached this stage of the selection process, you need to ensure that you do yourself justice – and preparation for your interview is the key to achieving success. Your interview is your chance to demonstrate to the interviewer that you have the right personality, qualifications, experience and relevant proven track record, and that your recruitment consultant was right to recommend you for interview with the company.

ASSESSMENT
CENTRES

Hopefully, if you have made it to an assessment centre you’ve already completed a basic level of research regarding the business, but before you attend its definitely a good idea to take a look over this again. With some industries evolving daily you never know what today’s breaking news could be – you don’t want to be the only one in an assessment unaware of your prospective employer’s latest news!

PSYCHOMETRIC
TESTING

Psychometric tests are used by employers to find candidates with the relevant skills, intelligence, personality, and cultural fit for their business. The profile they’re going to build will allow you to show that you can solve problems, you are a team player, and that you will fit into the culture of the business.

JOB OFFERS &
FEEDBACK

So, you’ve been for an interview and you’re waiting for the feedback; this is possibly one of the most testing parts of finding a new role. One of the hardest things to do is wait, be careful not to bombard your interviewer with questions or chase an outcome prior to the agreed time frame that was set.

RESIGNATION
ADVICE

Congratulations! You’ve landed the job of your dreams and now comes the dreaded conversation with your current employer where you have to let them know you’re leaving. The best advice we could give is to make sure that you leave in a positive way and on good terms, don’t burn any bridges!

COUNTER
OFFER

Just when you have gone out and found the perfect new job, gone through the tough stages of interviewing and have been offered your dream role, upon resigning from your current position, your employer could make you a counter offer leaving you in a state of confusion.

STARTING YOUR
NEW JOB

Starting a new job can be scary. Sometimes, entering into a new work environment can make you feel as if you step foot on another planet. In order to succeed, both socially and professionally, you’re expected to learn the culture, follow the dress code and pick up on the acceptable behaviours as well as mastering your daily role.
