Does your Job Searching keep hitting a stone wall somewhere in the process? Maybe its diagnostics time?
Clients often complain that their applications in response to job adverts do not seem to get the attention they deserve. They just aren’t getting interviews or if they do, they don’t get a second one. Or they go right through the process, but never get that final offer. That being the case it’s time to think carefully about your approach, style of contact and your presentation.
With the recent upturn in the market, there seems to be more and more opportunities presenting themselves, in all industry sectors. Every opportunity means interviews, and lots of them. To be successful and confident at interview the most important preparation you can make is to read over your CV again and again.
You walk into the interview are greeted by two, four or maybe six beady eyes staring at you. Your mouth goes dry, you feel the heat coming up your neck into your cheeks, and you know they are going red, you feel cold perspiration on your forehead, and in answer to a greeting you squeak or make a strange noise that sound vaguely like ‘good morning’. It happens to the best of us and if it’s happened to you, be assured you are not alone.
