Interview Preparation Tips

Interviews can be a nerve-wracking experience, both for the interviewer and the interviewee. However, with proper preparation and the right mindset, you can ace your next interview and land your dream job. Here are some tips to help you prepare for your interview:

  1. Research the company: Before your interview, make sure you know as much as possible about the company you’re interviewing with. Look into their mission, values, and recent news or events. This will not only show your interest in the company, but it will also give you a better understanding of the role you’re applying for and how it fits into the company’s overall goals.
  2. Prepare for common interview questions: There are certain questions that are commonly asked in interviews, such as “Why do you want to work for our company?” and “What are your strengths and weaknesses?” Make sure you have thought through your answers to these questions and practice them before the interview.
  3. Come prepared with questions of your own: During the interview, you will likely be given the opportunity to ask your own questions. This is a great opportunity to show your interest in the company and the role. Come prepared with a few thoughtful questions that demonstrate your curiosity and willingness to learn.
  4. Dress professionally: Make sure you are dressed professionally for your interview. This shows that you take the interview and the opportunity seriously.
  5. Be on time: Make sure you arrive at the interview on time. Being punctual demonstrates your respect for the interviewer’s time and shows that you are reliable.
  6. Be confident: Confidence is key during an interview. Speak clearly, make eye contact, and don’t be afraid to take a moment to think before answering a question. Remember that the interviewer wants to see that you are a good fit for the role, so don’t be too hard on yourself if you stumble over a question or two.
  7. Follow up: After the interview, be sure to send a thank-you note or email to the interviewer. This shows your appreciation for the opportunity and keeps you top of mind for the interviewer.

By following these tips and preparing thoroughly, you’ll be able to approach your interview with confidence and leave a lasting impression on your interviewer. Remember to stay calm, be yourself and good luck!

4 Day Week

4 Day Week

Would a four-day working week really be such a good idea?

The traditional working week is facing a radical overhaul, more and more are opting for a four-day working week.

On paper, it is an attractive proposition, but in practice, it is far from realistic.

At SaVi Recruitment, we work with a range of clients who have an ongoing need and we have to be flexible in our approach to working hours to accommodate that need.

It would be great if we could operate on a four-day working week, but it simply is not achievable.

None of our clients operate on a four-day basis so it’s just not realistic for us to trial it, if someone needs a labourer or a driver on a Friday they aren’t going to wait for us to come back in on Monday to find that person; they are going to go elsewhere.

In some industries, a four-day week may be achievable, but I can’t work out which industries they are; all industries have links to other industries so you would have to rely on everyone else working a four day week as well.

One of the arguments for the shift from a five-day week to a four-day week is that advances in technology have made our lives simpler, that is true but it will never replace getting out and building face-to-face relationships.

No database will ever replace getting to know your clients, and at SaVi we really value the relationships we have with our clients and I wouldn’t want those relationships to be reduced to just a cell in a database.

Our staff are just as motivated working five day weeks as they would be four day weeks because we create a positive environment where they can thrive.

If you think that working less is the answer to solving staff morale issues, you are simply shifting the problem; not tackling it.

Many people hide behind a four-day working week, but it is about working smarter, not less.

Transnational corporations can afford to lead the way when it comes to five-day weeks but at SolviT we would rather lead the way when it comes to delivering excellent service when it is required, it is all part of the 24/7 service we are proud to offer.
