It may however, not come in those exact words, it could look like this: “Why do you have to offer, over and above the other candidates?” Or […]

Is This A Date, An Interrogation Or A Job Interview?

Actually, as my 9-year-old nephew is prone to start everything with, it is all of those. A wonderful friend of mine was one of the first in our world to dive into the unknown waters of on-line dating 12 years ago. Brave brave soul we all thought inwardly.

I Cracked A Funny, Was I On The Money? Interview Humour: Yay or Nay?

There are going to be polarising views on this one, is it totally inappropriate or a showstopper that leaves an impression? Here’s my take. In many industries including my specialty area, Aviation, we can see 10-20 people during assessment days. That’s tiring and when you are tired, disinterest or a short attention span can seep […]
