Recruiter tips: How to stand out from the other candidates
What do our recruiters look out for in an application? How can applicants make a good impression during the application process with their C.V., in the online interview and during the face-to-face meeting? We asked our recruiters. You can find some exclusive tips from the pros below.
"Be yourself in the interview and don't pretend to be someone you’re not. Experienced managers will notice this quite quickly. It is also normal to be nervous, we all know that. For example, if you're a career starter or your last application was 15 years ago, there's no harm in admitting that and saying so right at the beginning. That's brave and breaks the ice at the same time.”
"When preparing for a video interview, make sure you find a quiet setting and a suitable background. It is best to test the internet and audio quality in advance so that you can concentrate fully on the conversation. For some self-confidence, choose an outfit that you feel comfortable in and that you would also wear during a personal interview."
"From my perspective as a recruiter, a good interview is a pleasant conversation. Be authentic and open, ask questions. But above all: be relaxed and enjoy the interaction. Take the time you need to answer the interviewer. A glass of water next to you can help. So you can take a sip and have time to think about your answer.”
"In your C.V., refer to the tasks and requirements from the job advertisement – which experience can you make an impression with? If you don't completely fit the profile, don't let this put you off. Our jobs always describe maximum requirements. If you already have the basic qualifications required, be brave and apply."
