How to Build Your Reference List

Picture the scenario – you apply for an office administration job and are extremely happy to get an interview after submitting a test or presentation you’ve worked really hard on.

Can You Grow Without Changing?

Imagine this scenario – You are experiencing growth within your team and need to recruit. You post a new vacancy on social media, share it within a few groups and contact a couple of recruiters to widen your options. You start receiving the first applications and you invite and interview a number of applicants. You make an offer to the best one and after some negotiation you get the candidate’s approval. You prepare the welcome pack and make sure that on the first day of your new recruit, you block a couple of hours on your calendar so that you give the necessary attention to the newcomer and possibly post a photo on the company’s social media page.
