When I was in high school I applied for a job at Pizza Hut. A few of my friends worked there and I hated my current job so I figured I’d try it out. The day of the interview I was a little nervous - standard nerves about an interview - nothing crazy. The manager came to the front of the restaurant to meet me and we sat in a booth to begin the Q&A. The first thing he asked was, “So that’s your real name? We all were taking bets it was a stage name.” To say that I was shocked would be an…Continue
Sometimes candidates miss interviews. Unforeseen circumstances do occur. That’s okay and most of the time the hiring authority will understand. As long as you communicate.
Car accident, just found out that a relative is sick and needs you right away, dog buried your car keys…….just call right away and let the recruiter or hiring manager know. If you don’t show up and don’t communicate for a day or two then your excuse will fall on deaf ears. They’re not that dumb. Everyone…Continue

Whether you’ve tried them or not, I’m guessing you’re familiar with the invasion of video interviews. When they infiltrated organizations several years ago, maybe you thought they were just a phase and wouldn’t stand the test of time,…Continue

A first impression is a crucial moment on a first date. Things like bad breath, nervousness, or even outright desperation can and will throw up warning signals to your date. The same is also true on an interview; where a lack of confidence, charisma, and manners can…Continue

Many of the traditional tips for a successful interview: eye contact, pressed suit and a firm handshake, lose the majority of their effectiveness over the phone. That’s not…Continue

Almost exactly one year ago, my husband and I adopted our little fur baby from the local animal shelter. We both grew up with pets, but this was our first (and only child) together as a couple. Our sweet guy, Hurley, immediately became a part of our family and dramatically influenced our official new lifestyle as doggie people.
As his one year adoption anniversary approached, I wanted to come up with a way to celebrate how much love and enjoyment he has brought our…Continue
In the past, recruiters had to be part time headhunters, part time spies, sneaking around in pubs and water closets, hoping for just a few moments of privacy with job candidates. So…Continue

Picking up the phone to speak to a complete stranger is terrifying enough, so imagine how much more scary the prospect of having a phone interview can be. From tripping over our words to calling the interviewer the wrong name, there’s plenty of ways a phone interview can take a turn for their worse.
That’s why you should always leave plenty of room for error, and treat phone interviews as though they were a face-to-face meeting with an employer. While you may think that hiding behind…Continue

"I'm sorry… Why are you here?"
There are thousands of articles, blog posts and "how-to's" advising job seekers how to prepare for a phone screen, a video interview, and in-person job interview. But what about the other side of that desk or conference table? The hiring manager, recruiter, HR manager, and others tasked with interviewing and evaluating candidates? …Continue
A significant percentage of people involved with screening and selecting job candidates fancy themselves detectives, mind-readers, psychics and psychologists. They’re almost always willing to trust their own gut. But not much else slips unscathed through the scrutiny of these trust deficient evaluators of talent.…Continue
Job interviews can be stressful at the best of times. That's understandable - especially if it's for a job you really want. The reality is, far too many people fail their interview before they really get started - because they don't prepare properly and they don't present the best image of themselves.

Obviously, every company culture is different and sometimes what hiring managers think and say they want is exactly the opposite of what they really mean by fit. Do you find this to be the case in your recruiting experience? If so, what's the main cause of this discrepancy?
In job opportunity listings, we often see terms such as:
employment situation. I wasn’t sure whether they were seeking my advice about their current employment or how to approach the search for something else. (They are currently…Continue
With the war for quality talent as fierce as it is right now, if you are lucky enough to have identified a star candidate, you need to ensure that you make the most of the interview and not waste your valuable time.
There’s no denying the value of asking candidates a series of behavioural or competency based interview…Continue
I’m regularly asked by recruiters and HR directors what type of roles video interviewing works best for. It’s a very pertinent question, for which there is no simple, right or wrong answer. It depends on a number of factors such as the seniority of role you’re recruiting for, or the size of your organisation.
The first thing to say is, you shouldn’t be thinking of video interviewing replacing face-to-face interviews. Instead, video interviews provide a great way to filter large…Continue

As a career recruiter, I’ve seen my share of ‘shifty business’. And sometimes from employers themselves! It usually involved a client contacting my candidate directly so as to avoid having to pay a recruitment fee.
Such shady dealings have unfortunately always taken…
