Braving The Interview!

How to interview like a pro

If you feel as though this section of the process is the most stressful, do not worry you are not alone. It is important to remember, if you have reached this stage you are already doing well. Always dress appropriate for an interview, hence it is better to be overdressed and impress than underdressed. The way you present yourself is the first impression look you are conveying to your future employer.

Prior to your interview, you must do some research. Do research on the company you will be applying to and plan some of your responses towards the type of position you are applying for. Do not be late! It is vital to plan ahead, therefore, if you do not know the area in which the interview will be conducted, search the area and make sure you are on time for the interview.

Finally, be yourself. If you get a job by being something you are not, it will only lead to more problems down the line. If you were rejected after the interview process, remember to keep the faith and see the interview process as an opportunity of growth.

best-Topvitae-recruitment rev b

Why are young graduates so valuable for one’s clients? It can be seen that Gen Z job seekers are highly motivated when it comes to learning and development. Young adults have a great knowledge on the latest digital and technological developments, especially in the area of social media. Let us jump into some great tips in order to attract young graduates.

1. USE SOCIAL MEDIA AS A PLATFORM OF RECRUITMENT

      It can be seen that some stereotypes are true, Gen Z does indeed spend more time on social media than any other generation. Get up-to-speed and think of ways in which you can integrate your recruitment process with socials. Social media is a strong tool for discovery and contact.

2. INTERSHIP SCHEME

This represents a symbiotic relationship between talent-hungry companies willing to take on a little bit of inexperience and universities wanting to give their students an introduction to the workplace. This also helps the client offer lower salaries or none at all, thus balancing out the inexperience. These schemes have a powerful effect on hiring, as a student is more likely to take on a full-time position with a company they have interned at post-graduation.

3. GAMIFICATION

Companies need to devise hiring strategies for those born into the digitalized world. Many companies conduct inter-university competitions, this helps create brand awareness in students. It also allows companies to establish a relationship between brands and potential employees, this is all before the actual opportunity of employment is discussed.

4. SPEED UP YOUR HIRING PROCESS

If a company does not act quickly, your applicants may abandon your hiring process. Hence, it is a good idea to evaluate the reasons why your hiring process is slow and try to resolve it in a short period of time.

6 Effective CV Tips

6 SIMPLE BUT EFFECTIVE TIPS TO MAKE YOUR CV STAND OUT

First impressions are vital to success. On average recruiters spend just seven seconds looking at a CV before deciding whether a candidate is appropriate for the role. With that said, here are a few simple but effective ways that you can use in order to make your CV stand out from the rest:

There is no such thing as a general CV, your CV must be job specific. Establish what your job entails and how you can match each requirement. Every CV you send to your future employer should be tailored to the specific role you are applying for.

Choose your key skills and accomplishments in order to attract attention. This information should be compiled in a short summary. Remember! This personal profile is a critical part of your CV and tells the recruiter exactly who you are.

References should be from a previous employer who can vouch for your skills and experience. If you have never worked before it will be acceptable to use a teacher as a reference.

It is pivotal to review your CV on a regular basis and modify it where needed. Such as any new skills or experience that is missing. Updating your CV on a regular basis helps eliminate the time and effort of researching old documents.

Job titles and job buzzwords will help a search engine pick out your CV from the rest of the pack. This helps recruiters find your CV if you have uploaded it to a job site. If you are unsure which keywords you should be using, search online in order to see which words are commonly mentioned when you input your job title.

Leaving apparent gaps on your CV immediately makes employers suspicious and they will not give you the benefit of the doubt. If you have been out of work it can be of a concern but try put a positive spin on it.
