Did you know your interview starts at the first point of communication?
“PLEASE SEND YOUR CV IN PDF ALONG WITH REASONS WHY YOU WOULD BE SUITABLE FOR THE ROLE”
That is what you call a direct instruction. Your interview process as begun.
If you can’t follow the very first instruction, it is highly likely you will never hear from the agency/company.
If you get this right, know every word you type is being scrutinized. Check your grammar, your spelling, your sentence structure and get it right.
Your next interview step. THE CALL.
Howzit, ja, lekker to get your call. Quickly finishing off my sig, give me a second.
If you aren’t ready for the call, don’t take it. First impressions are what get you in the door.
The recruiter’s interview.
At Nu Beginnings we will never send a candidate for a position that we are not 100% confident in. You are a reflection of our brand. Getting lost, coming in late or forgetting about the interview chips away at our confidence.
Some other pointers that we can only assume you don’t know.
Hey, saw your advert on FB, check out my CV.
Check my LinkedIn profile.
I’m looking for a job, get me one.
Here’s my email address.
If you can’t take the time to read who to address the email to, why do you expect us to take the time for you? I’m sorry you are too busy to contact me directly, but a message to check out your profile doesn’t entice me to work with you. How about a personal introduction?
Over 14 million South African’s are looking for work, how would this approach make you stand out?
Be the best you at all times.
