Not Getting Past The Job Interview? What Might Be Going Wrong

Posted: 28th of August 2015 by Tom Clover

Job interviews are stressful enough, without going to the effort to get all dressed up and prepared only to later find out that you didn’t get the job. Making things even worse is the fact that you rarely get to find out what went wrong. Companies don’t tend to be too good at telling you why you didn’t pass the interview process – they have found their employee and are ready to move on. But how are you supposed to brush up your interview technique for next time if you don’t get any feedback? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

C.V. Advice: Hobbies & Pastimes

C.V. Advice: Hobbies & Pastimes

Posted: 27th of August 2015 by Tom Clover

“I enjoy socialising with friends, eating out, and going to the cinema.” These are all classic things to put on the hobbies or pastimes’ section of your C.V. but the trouble is they are pretty irrelevant. I mean, let’s face it, who doesn’t like spending time with their friends (and if you do I suggest you have a think about finding some new ones!). Such obvious statements don’t add anything to your C.V. – you might as well also put that “I enjoy doing things that I like” for all the information this offers about you. Your hobbies should show something extra about you, give an insight into your personality, or even better somehow link to the job you are applying for or the skills you’ll need to do it. That being said, the hobbies on your C.V. are subjective – what if your new boss has a pathological hatred of chess, for example, or thinks that only idiots play rugby, for example? Should you always include hobbies on your C.V. – and if so, what sort of things should you look to include?

Playing up, throwing tantrums, or engaging in other types of childish behaviour generally won’t help your career, but could there be an instance when the tables are turned, and thinking a bit more like a child could be beneficial?

Posted: 21st of August 2015 by Tom Clover

When was the last time you concentrated on just one thing without distractions? You may think that you were fully focused as you sat watching that programme TV, but there is a good chance you were distracted by checking your phone, social media, or something else. We are all quite used to doing several things at once, and things can be even worse at work! Being able to ‘multi-task’ is often seen as a desirable skill, but could it all just be a myth? Could the very act of multi-tasking actually harm your health, cause stress, and actually lower your productivity?
