What our candidates say about us…
Thank you very much for all of your help in working with me on my job hunt – you truly are the most personable and proactive person in your industry!
Thank you again for all your advice and help. If I am ever looking for work again, I know who to contact and I have already referred you to a friend as well!
Compared to some other agencies I had registered with, I found yours to be so much nicer to deal with, more personal and the most professional, always giving feedback etc.
My first and only experience with going through an agency was a pleasant and rewarding one.
All the best, you won’t need it, you know what you’re doing!
Thank you for your help. The interview process was very nice, and you are easily one of the better agencies out there.
More tips and advice for job seeking
A cover letter provides the first impression to a potential employer. It’s an excellent opportunity to demonstrate your written communication skills, level of professionalism and interest in working for the Company.
Key Cover Letter Tips:
Be brief; state who you are, why you are applying and where you heard about the company/vacancy.
Make it relevant. Tailor your cover letter to the job you’re applying for. Highlight the key attributes and experience that directly relates to the position you are applying for and/or your industry experience. Address the selection criteria and refer to the advertisement for key points.
Keep the layout clear and well formatted.
Double check your letter. Is the information correct? Is the grammar correct? Is the spelling correct.
Here’s some tips to help increase your chances of getting the job.
The work you do before your meeting is imperative to a successful interview. It is very impressive for a potential employer to know that you have invested time in learning about their business and understand the potential new job.
Preparing for the Interview
Research the company.
Re-read the job specification and the requirements for the position. What skills and experience do you have that meets the position requirements and what don’t you have?
Prepare your paperwork. Take with you a copy of your resume, your references and any copies of your qualifications that are relevant.
Be prepared to fill in the company’s internal application form and ensure that the details on the form exactly match the details on your resume
Arrive early for the interview – prepare for delays.
Dress to Impress. The golden rule is to dress up rather than down regardless of the company culture or your expectations of what the interviewer will wear. Do you look professional? Your overall general grooming is just as important as what you wear. Your greatest asset is your smile and the ability to make eye contact with your Interviewer at all times.
These are some common questions you may be asked at an Interview. Practice answering them.
