Many applicants and job seekers lose out on openings due to lack of preparation, something that Sam and Michael, who are the managers that conduct interviews at The Ixl Company place at second of importance when attending an interview. “As an interviewer, you are looking for someone that is keen, not just to ‘get a job’ but keen on the opening available, the company as well as their goals and achievements. Basic research is essential, for example check out their website to find out all you need to know and you will be more than prepared for an interview, to go that extra step, go onto social media of the company to get to a more personal level of the company, re-read the advert and prepare a list of questions to ask so that it shows you have researched and that you are interested in more than just a job” says Michael Ashaye, Manager at The Ixl Company.
Turning up looking smart, on time with a CV, cover letter and a good amount of preparation seems like a good start for sailing through an interview, but what is it that makes you stand out and be taken to the next step of interviewing?
Finally, to really get you noticed The Ixl Company’s receptionist Emma gives one last piece of advice. “Be Yourself. Be Individual. Be Confident. Basics like be on time, eye contact and stand straight actually really help, show your personality - have a few positive stories to tell about previous work that shows you in a good light so that not only your experience but your personality is shining through. Remember that everyone you meet at an interview, the receptionist, the staff, the interviewer, even the cleaner are potentially people you could be working with on a daily basis, so being confident and being yourself with everyone that you meet is so important”.
The Ixl Company have regular openings available on Job Boards such as Reed, as well as on their website (www.theixlcompany.co.uk) because of their constant growth. With national plans for expansion by the beginning of 2015 they truly are expanding. Use their advice at other companies or try and bag yourself an interview at The Ixl Company.
