Achieve your ambitions

You’ve been Googled

Before an interview gets underway, be aware that a future employer may Google you. If you don’t think your social media profile is suitable, change it.

Research heavy

Know your facts, and use sites such as LinkedIn to research company profiles, reports and forecasts. Find out what format the interview will take, and understand the job specification fully.

The psychology of interviews

If you get nervous, explore why; this will help you improve. Review body language, manner and eye contact, and focus on thinking positively.

Talk Only

Prepare well for telephone interviews; set aside ample time, pace yourself and have your CV to hand. Enthusiasm is key; answer questions in detail without talking over the interviewer.

Presentations

This is your chance to shine. Proof-read everything you will present, and practice giving the presentation until you are comfortable with the result.

Any questions?

Use questions wisely. You can show your knowledge and research here and find out more about the company, so don’t just ask about holiday and bonuses. Never say that your questions have all been answered.

The competition

The competition will always be tough, so try to focus on what you can do to make yourself stand out.

Good manners

Always make your interviewer feel appreciated. Call us as soon as you walk out of an interview and we will deliver your prompt feedback immediately to our clients.

Having used one agency where the number of candidates dried up fairly quickly I chanced upon Spotlight Recruitment. After briefing them on my requirements I was delighted to receive a steady stream of suitable applicants for my vacant marketing position.
