Congratulations, you’ve been invited for an interview! That means the employer has seen something in your resume that matches the requirements of the job you’ve applied for.

Attending your first interview can be a nerve-wracking experience, so we’ve put together our five golden rules to help reduce your anxiety levels:
What Every Recruiter Can Do to Reduce Candidate Flake-Outs
How many times have you gotten word from your client that a top candidate you presented and endorsed has failed to show up for their interview?
A successful job search is all about nailing the interview. But you’ll never have the opportunity to do that if your resume can’t pass the automated screeners – and dazzle the human ones.

The delicate matter of setting and managing client expectations in a competitive industry sector can present a dilemma for even the most experienced recruiters. Achieving the all-important retained or even exclusive assignment can be at times be a feat in itself in markets where candidates are queueing up for vacancies – but what of the industries where the so-called ‘war for talent’ is well and truly raging?
As an entrepreneur running a small-but-growing business, your hiring decisions are some of the most critical – and risky – decisions you will make. Every organization, regardless of size, is impacted by every new hire. But the smaller your company, the bigger the impact. Indeed, a study conducted by Guident Financial and LendingClub found that for small business owners especially, employee recruiting and retention is a challenge in a strong labor market.So how can you make sure you’re bringing in the right person, every time?
You’re looking for your next career move, and you’ve drawn up a list of target employers. How many of those are small companies that may not have the obvious pull of an instantly recognizable brand like Apple, Google or Microsoft?
Big doesn’t necessarily mean better in career terms. Here we present some of the advantages of working with smaller organizations:
You have an interview lined up. You’ve rehearsed answers to typical questions and you’re fairly confident you’re prepared for whatever the hiring manager will fire your way. You may know what you should say, but are you certain about what you shouldn't?
The interviewer asks, point blank, “what is your salary requirement?” And there you are, trying to present yourself as forthright, easy to work with, and clear about what you need. It’s a tricky business, refusing to answer without looking rude, unprepared or both. With thoughtful preparation, a little online homework, and careful scripting, you can navigate your way through these discussions masterfully.
