Applying for a position with a new employer can be daunting, especially for education leavers who may be unsure of what to expect. The interview is very much a two-way process and the Bis Henderson recruitment team liaise closely throughout with the employer and the applicant to ensure it is a positive experience for both.
Fresh talent is highly sought after in supply chain recruitment, with a current shortage and the need to meet an increasing demand within the industry sector. This doesn’t mean however that employers will settle for second best and in order to secure a prized position, it is essential to prepare well prior to the interview. Bis Henderson recruiters will fully brief the prospective candidate to ensure they have a clear understanding of the hiring Company’s background, future goals and ethos. An interviewer will expect the applicant to have completed their homework before the first face-to-face meeting.
Investing for the future
A candidate is potentially investing in their future as much as the employer is investing in the new employee and making the right decision is crucial for the success of both. Before putting candidates forward for short-listing and interview, the Bis team will clarify they are well matched for the supply chain job.
Advice can be given on presentation skills, as good communication and a positive response to questions are a good indication that these attributes will be of value when working as part of the supply chain team. An employer will often look for a candidate who is a good listener and not someone who is only interested in talking about themselves.
CV writing tips
Pre-interview help can be given with C.V writing tips. This C.V or resume may well be the first impression an employer has of an applicant. This is the opportunity to present skill-sets and experience to the best advantage, in order to stand out above rivals. The C.V should illustrate strengths and capabilities but the statements should be honest, avoiding any tendency to mislead or exaggerate. Bis Henderson recruiters will advise on the format and suggest any improvements to the C.V if necessary.
The relationship certainly doesn’t end with the interview and feedback will be given to address any concerns the candidate may have, with a full assessment of the experience.
