Here are our top three tips to help calm your nerves at your recruiter interview;
Organise Your Time
Show your recruiter that you’re serious about looking for work. Make sure you respond to their calls, emails or texts as quickly as possible. A recruiter is dealing with lots of candidates at once and leaving large gaps of time between communication could mean you miss out on that dream job. If there are times you aren’t available, for example you are still working, then tell the recruiter the best times to get hold of you.
Your recruiter is here to help you find the perfect job for you. Take the time to think about what job you want, where and the responsibilities. By being clear and open about the job you’re looking for, your recruiter has a better chance of finding that job for you. Be clear on your experiences too “I was kind of in charge” – what does that actually mean? Instead, explain your responsibilities and job role in previous jobs.
Just like you’ll get questions in an interview with a potential employer, your recruiter will ask you questions too. One-word answers are not a good approach. Instead read through your CV to remind yourself of your roles and responsibilities. It is likely your recruiter will ask about these. If you are doing a virtual recruiter interview, make sure you set time aside to give them your full attention, so you create the best possible first impression.
