We all know, when creating content, it’s important to approach it in a natural and organic way, just as if you were having a conversation with someone over coffee. In terms of topics to discuss, the possibilities are endless. It all depends on what we feel like talking about in the moment.
But ultimately, the goal of any conversation should be to connect with each other and share our perspectives in an authentic and meaningful way. So whether we’re chatting in person or sharing our thoughts online, the key is to approach it with an open mind and a willingness to engage in honest and thoughtful conversation.
An interview is just a conversation, but is often overtaken by nerves and ‘ultra-professionalism’. What do we mean by this?
Well, firstly, the high stakes nature of the interview process can make candidates feel a lot of pressure to perform well and impress. This pressure can lead to nerves, which can in turn make it harder to relax and engage.
Secondly, the power dynamic of the interview can affect the flow of conversation. The interviewer is typically seen as the gatekeeper to a job or opportunity, which can make candidates feel like they need to be on their best behaviour and present themselves in the most polished manner possible (which may not show their true personality).
But if the candidate is being an unrealistic version of themselves, how can the interviewer really know who they are hiring?
As a Recruitment Partner, we play a crucial role in creating a more positive and supportive interview experience for both candidates and the interviewer.
By taking the time to get to know our customers and their business needs, we ensure that we are presenting exactly the right candidates who can showcase their skills and expertise.
Additionally, by providing comprehensive support to candidates throughout the interview process, we help to alleviate some of the stress and anxiety that can come with job interviews. This can include offering interview preparation guidance, a simple text to wish them luck, a call to ask how they think the interview went and providing feedback.
By offering a high level of support and guidance from the start, we ensure that candidates are able to put their best foot forward in interviews and chat about their experience and expertise in a natural and organic way – which ultimately helps the Hiring Manager to find just the right person for their business.
We are the keystone that bridges the gap between candidates and employers, helping to facilitate a more positive interview experience for both parties. Locking all of the key elements into position.
The natural flow of communication and a positive recruitment experience for everyone are our business drivers. What are yours?
