interview horror stories

A man was travelling on the London Underground to his job interview one morning when another commuter blocked his way. The man reacted with a push and shove and a little explicit outburst. Upon arriving at his interview, the interviewer - a little shocked - hinted that they had previously met, before it finally clicked to the man that it had been the interviewer he had sworn at on the tube that same morning. Understandably travelling to job interviews having to conquer the rush hour tube isn’t always the most stress-free activity. However when interviewing it always pays to be prepared before, during, and after the interview, even when you’re not on the premises, to ensure that you...

reduce stress at work

The main contributor for mental illness in the workplace is something we have all suffered from time to time. It appears when you’re up to your eyeballs in tasks and that all important deadline is hanging over your head.

Pushing aside and ignoring stress on a regular basis is not only bad...

recruitment costs graph

Do you know how much your company loses from the departure of an employee? Do you know the recruitment costs to hire a replacement? How about the recruitment cost of hiring the wrong replacement?

This is especially true in the hiring of a wrong candidate in the market I specialise in – Fire & Security Recruitment – where there is currently a large skills shortage.  Wrong decisions can...

Why should you use a recruiter exclusively? An honest guide.

What’s in it for you, and you, and me? Here I explain why you should use a recruiter exclusively by looking at all parties involved in the recruitment process.   Of all the conversations I’ve had in 10+ years of Recruitment, the one I find myself having most is the topic of exclusivity. Some companies I speak to don’t know what that means, others question the value of working exclusively over the way they’ve always worked with recruiters: “What happens if you can’t find the right candidate? I’ve put all my eggs in your basket” “I need to find someone fast, would more recruiters working on this not speed that up?” “Can I really rely on you to...
