Stand Out In The Eyes Of Recruiters

Wednesday April 11, 2012 at 8:26am

Always doing extensive research on the company you have your interview with is a given and we’re sure you do it but so does 99% of your competition for post military jobs. So how do you set yourself apart from the rest?

The answer is research.

You may have done loads, but there’s one thing the majority of candidates forget; the person who is conducting your interview. We have such a broad range of networking mediums at our disposal these days that it is incredibly easy to do some effective research into your interviewer.

When being offered an interview always ask who it will be with, if not already told, and make a note of the name and their job position within the company. Take advantage of resources such as LinkedIn to find out more about this person; what have they done in the past? What do they enjoy in their spare time? Try and find a common interest, such as sport or subjects studied, and use this to your advantage in the interview to strike up interesting conversation.

Such an approach will instantly build rapport and make you memorable.
