The interview

When you’re looking for a new job, being interviewed or resigning, you will encounter several challenges for which you may not be ready. Our hints and tips will help to prepare you.

  • Negative factors to watch for in an interview

    It’s easy to send out bad signals when being interviewed – but employers will be watching for these and they could compromise your chances. Here’s what to watch out for.

  • The dos and don’ts of interviews

    It’s tempting to think that at interviews you just need to ‘be yourself’ – when actually you need to be in control. Making a good impression takes concentration and a little preparation.

  • Interview style guide

    Recruitment companies use a number of different interview styles. It doesn’t take too much effort to learn to recognise the styles. If you can do this, you can adapt your interview technique to the style demanded and come out winning.

  • Award-winning interview techniques

    Interviews are obviously the key point in the recruitment process. It doesn’t matter how good you are at your job, if you don’t interview well it will limit your career choices.

“I owe a lot to Tim, my first impressions of Rec2Rec agencies haven’t been good - and Tim has restored my faith that there are some good Rec2Recs who care about placing you in the right role. He listened to what I wanted and selected a few places to interview with; he would listen to what I wanted and always arranged calls to suit me. He has now placed me and it couldn’t be a better fit or opportunity for me and my career, I can not thank Tim and Futura enough.”
