Do you want to make a strong first impression to help you land your dream job?

Did you know that it only takes seven seconds to make a first impression! 

This may sound tough but it’s true. Like it or not, over the years we have been conditioned to unconsciously judge others. This is why when you are meeting for a face-to-face interview with a recruiter or potential employer you should be adequately prepared to take advantage of those seven seconds and position yourself for success and secure a role.

  • Are they hard to reach or in demand by your competitors?
  • Do candidates seek you out, or do you need to work hard to attract talent?

How to get the most out of school holidays  

When it comes to planning for your children on school holidays, you can experience mixed emotions. You may be excited that you have the opportunity to spend more quality time with your children, or slightly anxious about organising activities while you are at work. 

School holidays can become challenging when you receive 4 weeks of annual leave per year, and there are 12 weeks of school holidays per year – between yourself and your partner, it is not enough.

The changing face of recruitment 

Print media has been declining for more than 10 years, and many would argue that the industry is dead. The traditional print media revenue drivers such as classifieds, real estate, motor vehicles and recruitment have now all but migrated online with dedicated general and specialist websites.

 Against this rapidly changing media landscape, it is surprising that, according to Changeboard, 36.3% of recruiters continue to publish advertisements in print media, while only 4% of candidates use print media when searching for roles.
