Confidence key to graduate job approach
Thursday, 06 September 2007
Graduates who ooze confidence in job interviews have more chance of capturing their dream occupation, experts have claimed.
Matt Caulfield, an expert in neuro linguistic programming, (NLP) argues that the right mental approach can propel the right candidates into high level positions.
Commenting on the value of NLP, Mr Caulfield said: "An NLP programme can help to make the difference between an acceptable candidate and an exceptional one."
He added: "To perform at their very best an individual must be well prepared mentally and have the right attitude - and that confidence will help them perform better when they get the job."
And Mark Wilkinson, director at Angel Services Group, continued: "Confidence-boosting techniques like NLP are a really great way to improve your chances of landing the job you really want."
A recent survey by Ernst & Young found that more than 40 per cent of university leavers view career progression as the most important factor when seeking employment.
