Before a job interview, it's important to ensure you are prepared. Here are a few tips:
Re-read the job description
Research the company and make some notes
Prepare a list of questions to ask.
Plan your commute if necessary
Try to arrive slightly early
Remember to dress appropriately (smart or smart casual)
Turn off your mobile phone during the interview
You should always ask for feedback following an interview; constructive criticism can be very helpful.
Sometimes it's easy to get discouraged if you feel an interview did not go as well as you had hoped.
It's important not to take any unsuccessful applications personally and instead focus on your next opportunity.
"I have really enjoyed my first 12 weeks with SkyBlue and am really impressed with the way our branch is managed and all of my colleagues who have been more than happy to help me with any training issues I've had. I hope to have a long and successful career with SkyBlue Solutions."
"So far my experience with SlyBlue has been very positive. My consultant has been very friendly, helpful and professional at all times. Any queries have been answered almost immediately and I have never had to chase up for any answers. I would (and will recommend) SkyBlue to any friends who ask me about them."
"As we near our transition date fortel owner transferring over to Birmingham by mail Connect Plus (Highways Agency) on new, permanent contracts, I would just like to thank SkyBlue for their help and advice over the past year, and when I started with the Highways in July of this year. It has been an interesting time, and I am enjoying my work at the Leatherhead Highways Depot as an ISU Operative. If I have had any questions or need advice about anything, including pay, the team are always helpful, including processing any holiday pay."
"In December 2008 I was made redundant from my job as a LGV 2 skip lorry drive. I searched the web far & wide and on various jobsites I found SkyBlue. I will admit, I was skeptical at first having no job and relying on an agency was a bit daunting but I bit the bullet so to speak & decided to contact Robert Toumbas via the advert.
"Robert was totally professional, really friendly & within minutes changed my thoughts on "agencies" He got me into contact with Carillion who were hunting for LGV 2 Driver/Operatives to become INICIDENT SUPPORT UNIT Operatives on the M25, which as I knew was one of the largest motorway networks around. I was set up & had my interview at Swanley Depot & was made so welcome that since that day I haven't looked back. It has now been two years and I still love the job and get great satisfaction out of my career, Robert not only showed me light at the end of a dark tunnel he has given me what many people don't have!
"Most people have a job - but not many can call it a career!!!
"I really owe a lot to SkyBlue & in particular Robert who went beyond the call of duty to be-friend me & made me feel like I was worth employing again after being made redundant a week before Christmas.
"After two years I am still on the M25 contract full time and now I am a Union Steward & Health & Safety Rep at the depot. I think you'll agree when I say this is my success story thanks to Robert."
