  • Creating Rapport In An Interview
    Rapport is the connection between two people; the spoken and unspoken words that say ‘we are on the same page’. In an interview situation, you can employ numerous techniques to maximize the rapport between yourself and your interviewer.
  • The primary aim of a cover letter is to encourage employers to read your resume. However, it needs to do a lot more than say, 'Here is my resume!'. In short, it is the best chance you have to sell yourself.
  • Employers often use psychometric testing to vet potential employees and help them understand a little more about your personality and ability to fit into the role they are offering – and this type of testing is becoming increasingly popular.
  • Writing a good resume is tricky: the message must be right but so must its appearance.
  • Understandably, many people find discussing salaries uncomfortable and embarrassing during an interview. However, most interviewers expect some bartering and, if it motivates you to put more effort into the job, it is worthwhile for both the applicant and the employer.
  • A resume is a self-marketing tool and getting an interview can depend on how good your resume is. You will need to consider what to include, how much detail is needed and how to make your resume stand out from all the others.
