    There are sydney labour hire agencies than some warning signs of hope around the UK’s unemployment front but it doesn’t declare that job seekers can loosen off their preparations for interview.

    While the amount of job seekers declined by 26,000 in the three months to May it is still premature in summary that the economic recovery has become established, especially because of the recent Recruitment and Employment Confederation’s (REC) finding that the rate of job creation was slowing slightly.

    Indeed the REC’s reaction to the unemployment figures, while welcoming the advance, highlighted that one categories of job-seekers are not having the support and guidance they require inside a competitive jobs market, specially those people who usually are not catered for less than the Government’s work programme.

    It identified these as high-end professionals, recent graduates and workers looking to make transition from public to non-public sector.

    It does not really matter if the job seeker is seeking a general, low-level administrative job, an executive PA position or a more specialised managerial role. Competition will continue intense and also this helps it be particularly important for those who survive to interview stage to polish not merely their interview skills and also their presentation.

    Some recent tips from interviewers are the usual advice including dressing appropriately, but, interestingly, not making comments about those who might have turned up not appropriately dressed. The interviewer has eyes which enable it to make their very own judgments!

    Unbelievably, another was not arriving using a take-away coffee at your fingertips. One would have belief that a lot of people know that?

    Another issue was the interviewee’s behaviour inside interview, with one pet peeve being touching or playing with the facial skin or hair.
    i thought about this is an unconscious nervous habit and of course an interviewee may be nervous, but it’s best not to communicate this towards the interviewer.

    Other advice is focused on how to phrase questions the candidate is invited to place as well as the two most likely to provoke an adverse reaction are asking just what the working hours are and what promotion opportunities are available.

    The first can be re-phrased like a question inviting some of the typical time of day in order to avoid giving the impression how the candidate is often a clock watcher. The second might be misconstrued to too centered on career progress rather than about the post which can be found and for that they can are being interviewed. However, the candidate really should have done some research around the company and turn into prepared which has a relevant question. Having no question prepared just isn’t a possibility.

    If the work seeker is applying the expertise of an expert recruitment agency which makes a place of understanding its clients’ businesses, corporate culture and this could be a valuable way to obtain information for preparing a relevant question.

    Finally, following your interview the candidate should communicate a thank you for the means promptly, concisely and preferably by e-mail.
