GRS Recruitment Cyprus recently delivered a CV Writing and Interview Skills presentation to Year 12 students at the Heritage School with the presentation aimed at helping students prepare for future Job and Intern applications and interviews. The presentation was delivered by Steve Slocombe, Co-Founder at GRS and Lorraine Brown, Business Support Manager.

 

Steve Slocombe said ‘all too often we see well qualified students and graduates looking to enter the workforce who are all too often unprepared for the interview process with poorly written CV’s and a lack of understanding as to how they should promote themselves at an interview’.

Steve added ‘by giving the Heritage students the same advice we give to our candidates who entrust us to carry out their career search, we hope this valuable presentation to the students will increase their chances of success when faced with an application process, as you have to remember you only get once chance at an interview there is no second attempt’.

The valuable session gave several live examples of what to do and what not to do in an interview situation including interview preparation, dress code, communication and what questions they would be likely to face.  Lorraine Brown, Business Manager GRS stressed the importance of using Social Media sites such as LinkedIn in intern and career searches. Lorraine said ‘ The importance of social media sites such as LinkedIn are growing increasingly important when looking for career opportunities. However students should also be aware that HR Managers will also use social media in the form of Facebook to check out and assess a person’s suitability for their organisation. Students need to be aware of this when making applications to companies.

This was the second presentation that GRS has made at the Heritage School on CV writing and Interview Skills. GRS is very pleased to be invited back to the Heritage school for a further presentation for the Summer Term.
