Of course, you are different just as much as each candidate for an interview is. This was very evident in our ‘A Candidate’s View’ case study research; what appeals to one candidate may not appeal to another.

For example, for some it may be that salary is at the top of your ‘wish list’, whereas for others it may be that they need flexible working hours or are looking for part time work. Or, it may be that progression such as promotion or personal development may be important to you. Perhaps you want to work for a company where their values include making a difference and giving back to people and the planet.

As we get to know all our business clients, we find out from them all the possibilities, including what upcoming career progression opportunities there are available, or in the future. We actively encourage them to think more about the job offer from a job seeker perspective. Your perspective.

How to stand out from the crowd…

We have always been proud to offer the best advice to our candidates on how to nail job interviews. The UK job seekers guide will also give you advice on how to stand out from your ‘competition’ online. 


LinkedIn is one of the best and most proactive ways to stand out, and here are just a few tips for you:

  • Ensure your LinkedIn profile is up to date
  • Have a professional headshot photo
  • Include an eye-catching cover image
  • Use the ‘About’ section wisely
  • Interact with your audience
  • Write articles
  • Network

Just because you may be at home, you still need to ‘look the part’. Being smartly dressed and punctual are just two of our top tips for job interviews in the ‘new world of work’.
