Succeeding With a Recommendation Letter

Including recommendation letters into job applications can be a sticky process. If the chosen recommender fails to mention key attributes the candidate would like highlighted, the opportunity to impress the hiring manger may be drastically reduced.

Interview questions employers shouldn’t ask

All employers want to find out as much as possible about prospective employees in order to see whether they will be a good fit for the vacancy and business or not. And this is perfectly understandable!

How to Alienate the Best Talent

I’ve read literally hundreds of employment contracts over the years. I’ve written a fair few of them myself too.

If You Are A High-Achiever But Somehow Frustrated In A Big Business…Read On

Maybe you’re in the wrong type of company, or more appropriately, maybe your competencies are better suited to a business of another size. One of my first questions to candidates is whether they consider themselves a big or a small-company person. It’s difficult to explain but a lot of people are quite rightly attracted to the branding and apparent success of larger businesses, and might think the question is there to catch them out.

A few start looking at me sideways, but the reality…

Top Job Hunting Guidelines to be considered at the Age of 50?

For people who are 50-years old and would like to work again or change jobs, the job vacancies in London look very appealing. However, the job market today is a battle field for them, despite the fact that they are old hands in their field of work, applicants with less experience and fewer skills are still preferred by companies. Why? Most probably, this is because, those candidates are way younger. Although this is a painful truth, mid-lifers must face this fact.
