CV Secrets and more: Why I never drink coffee in interviews, and other ways to beat the competition when job seeking.

From CVs, to Applicant Tracking Systems, LinkedIn and Video Interviews, this session covers it all!

The employment landscape is getting increasingly challenging, especially when you consider the impact that 2020 has on future hiring.  Interviews will be tougher and employers may even expect a little more from graduates, now that remote working is more commonplace.

How can you make sure your graduate application gets seen amongst the thousands of other CVs that get sent to employers every single day? How can you use your personality to stand out amongst the crowd? How can you work on yourself to improve your chances? And why should you reconsider saying yes to that cup of coffee if you do arrive at that face to face interview?

Abi Mason will guide you through the interview journey step by step, sharing tried and tested recruitment industry secrets that will allow you to approach your graduate job seeking with confidence, knowledge and the right transferable skills.
