How can interview coaching for candidates help employers with their logistics recruitment? Bis Henderson frequently find that many logistics candidates are either unprepared for the interviewing process or are nervous when facing their interviewer. This is even more likely when it’s a graduate’s first experience of applying for a position in a corporate environment.
A HR or hiring manager will want to be convinced of the candidate’s true potential and to see that they have spent time in gathering background information on the company and their operational methods. The client will lose valuable time if despite having all the required qualifications on paper, the candidate under-performs at the first interview and has to be recalled and given a second chance. In fact, many employers will decide that their time-scale doesn’t allow for this delay and top talent may be overlooked simply due to the candidate’s lack of interview skills. This means that a good opportunity for both may be missed.
Bis Henderson logistics recruitment consultants will ensure that potential candidates have a full briefing on the vacant position, the company and the interviewer. The recruiter will discuss the questions that are likely to be asked and will cover any areas that may raise concern on either side. The interview should always be a two-way process, as if there is little response from the candidate the interviewer may take the view that they will lack the communication skills essential in the logistics job itself. It is of course also imperative for the candidate to ask the appropriate questions to confirm the position is the right one for them, as much as being assessed as the best one for the role.
Bis Henderson’s aim is to make sure the interviewing process enables the client and candidate to get the best outcome from the assessment, both are fully prepared prior to the interview and the right person will be selected for the position.
