Do you want to take luck out of the equation and feel prepared?

I have been a hiring manager and an interview panel member for dozens of roles over the past 17 years in the private and public sector.

Do you want to know:

  • What hiring managers and recruiters are looking for in the job application?
  • How to get through the initial shortlist?
  • What questions could be asked?
  • How to reduce anxiety before an interview?
I can help you.

I’ve created a short training session that covers the entire recruitment process and provides tools, techniques and tips to help you stand out in the crowd and increase your chance of getting that job during these uncertain times.

My goal is to give you the resources to be self sufficient and confident in applying for your next role.

I will cover:

  • how to find the right role
  • the recruitment process
  • what to include in your resume (and what not to include)
  • how to create a cover letter that highlights your strengths
  • how to respond to application questions
  • increasing confidence and reducing anxiety before the interview
  • choosing referees and the questions they get asked
  • what to do if you’re unsuccessful
  • optional extras to help you stand out (even more) from the crowd

All participants will receive an eBook covering the training highlights and providing links to more information, templates and resources.
