Excellent, you've managed to secure an employer interview for one of your candidates. This means you're closer to a placement, making your clients happy, and further establishing your reputation as an expert recruiter. But does your candidate know how to interview? Are they comfortable in the hot seat?
For candidates, getting ready for a job interview is exciting and nerve-wracking in equal measures. This is what all those long days of sending out CVs and covering letters have been working towards!
They’ll inevitably be feeling the pressure to pull it out the bag when they reach the interview room, and this takes prep.
It’s in everyone’s best interests for the candidate to ace this process – of course you want them to nail the interview as much as they do. And since you’re likely to have plenty more experience of interview processes then they do, you’re in a great position to offer the candidate invaluable, realistic and actionable advice and guidance so they sail through this part of the process.
