I read CV’s, telephone and interview candidates throughout most of my week and there’s a common theme that comes up when questioning gaps of employment, jumpy moves or weird role changes. I’ve found that these can be explained through three main reasons:
- Poor health/bereavement of family members.
- Unable to find suitable work after a contract finished or redundancy.
- I took a risky move and it backfired.
So my question to you the reader is, what recruitment advice would you give a younger you?I’m hoping through positive messages, job seekers who are connections can gain some insight now and make the changes others wished they had. I’ll tell you mine.
I wished I hadn’t always said yes in an interview in my early to mid 20s. I had a lot to give employers and I never really sought out that perfect fit. Instead I took the first offer from my first interview after my golf career finished.But it all worked out good in the end! ]]>
