Research – Make sure you’ve done even just a basic amount of research before your interview. Have a look into the company and their ethos, this could give you an idea of the types of questions they’ll be asking you and will also let you decide if it is the type of company you can see yourself working for. Research the role that you have applied for, if the role is asking for certain skills, ensure that you’re up to date with your knowledge.
Honesty – Tell the consultant what you’re looking for – the things you’re willing to negotiate on and more importantly what you’re not. If the consultant talks to you about a job and you’re not interested, just say, the consultant won’t be offended and will be happier you were honest. Keep lines of communication open and transparent and keep the roles discuss with you confidential if requested! Finally, keeping the consultant up to date with a clear picture of your personal recruitment process will help them and you with your journey.
