Interview skills 'vital to get graduate jobs'
Wednesday, 22 October 2008
Good interview skills are even more vital for getting a graduate job in the current economic climate, one expert has claimed.
Joe McDermott, chief executive of Interviewgold.com, explained that succeeding in an application means more than just having "a bit of a chat" with an employer.
"The ability to communicate effectively in an interview is what will make one graduate stand out from all the others," he said.
Graduates should use every resource available to them in order to succeed in their application, Mr McDermott added.
They should also bear in mind that interview skill can be learned, he added.
Recently, a study by the firm found that more than a third of people have had sleepless nights before an interview because their CV contains lies.
It also found that 56 per cent of people worry about going blank or clamming up while being questioned over their suitability for a position.
