HOW TO GET THAT JOB!
Career coach Alice Stapleton, (alicestapleton. com) explains how to boost your confidence and bag your dream job.
Find Your Dream Role!
be clear on what you want from your next role – what skills, strengths and responsibilities do you want to be using? Think about who could help you with the perfect introduction. Find a handful of recruiters who specialise in what you’re looking for, then organise to meet with them face to face.
Get to know your CV really well and research the company. Find out what they do and what they’re known for, then think about why you want to work there. I always tell clients to research your interviewers too. This shows curiosity and initiative.
Look The Part
Get a sense of the company’s style and approach by searching online. Take their lead on how formal you need to be, but remember that it’s better to be overdressed than underdressed. Interviewers like to see you’ve made an effort and that the interview is important to you, so aim to be immaculate.
Be confident, open-minded, and friendly. Shake the hands of those interviewing you and introduce yourself. Don’t forget to ask for their names and their roles and always prepare a few good questions to ask them. Remember, this is your chance to interview them as well and check the position is right for you.
