    Interview process

    It was a one on one where I was given a very short space of time to prove myself and make myself stand out amongst the other candidates.

    I was asked why I wanted to be in recruitement, and why I felt I would be successful.

    Apart from that it was just a genreal discussion about me on a personal level.

    I had to make sure I tailored my answers to attributes needed for the job. Bringing in examples from my experience as shown on my CV.

    It was brief with no tasks, just a conversation. A brief discussion of my CV and how I had gained more experience in this sector.

    I had to really fight back to prove I had the skills to be successful in the role.

    It felt quite brutal with no time for me to ask about the company itself.

    Most difficult question

    If having a large family would affect my commitment to a job which required long hours.

    Interview tips

    Research what the recruitement industry is all about, what you have to do on a daily basis and the qualities that you need. Doing this illustrates to the interviewer just how serious you are.

    I had no real experience in sales and so I went and got a job in telesales afterwards. This made my CV stand out even more.

    Be on the ball, dont ease in slowly, hit the ground running with clear examples.

    Most importantly show your ambition and awarness of the financial structure that you could be rewarded from in the future.

    Resreach the different sectors the company is involved in so you can show you have an understanding of evcents which really drive the company and so you can prove you understanding the business areas and indeed international areas that you would be involved in.
