Ace A Creative Job Agency Interview by Avoiding These Interview Traps

Preparation is key...

Preparation is key when planning to interview for a job agency job. You must start preparing in advance. Understanding what you should not say is as essential as understanding what you should say at the interview.

Besides, you should also customise your portfolio in order to align perfectly and be relevant to a particular role for which you want to apply for. You also need to research and know more about than job agency you want to apply for so you are at least knowledgeable about the recruitment agency and the industry.

  1. Show Agency Loyalty.

Sometimes the recruiter will ask you where you would like to see yourself in the next ten years. Saying in another company is a kind of insult to the company. Rather, show the company that you plan to work there for as long as possible.

Talk about how you want to be a strong employer of the agency, helping take the company to the next level by doing exceptional work. Never start speculating on divorce before you get into marriage.

  1. Update Your Portfolio.

If you have been working in a different firm, your portfolio could help you get the next gig, especially if you have been working in a creative department. Make sure it contains your most current work, past and any awards you might have received. Also, make sure your portfolio is up-to-date to make an impact on the job agency you are presenting it to.

  1. Do Your Homework.

You don’t want to walk into an employment agency Toronto with very little information concerning it. That can be a terrible thing to do. Regardless of your qualifications and organised portfolio, you should do your research and know more about the agency you are considering to use.

Probably, the recruiter will ask you questions concerning the state of the agency, which may range from its clients to current award news and the management. The type of answers you provide to these questions will give the interviewer a hint on your seriousness to get the job with the job agency.

We don’t mean you should master every detail about the agency, but there are some basics that you should.

1. Dress Appropriately.

You are going there as a brand, and you are not the only one applying for the job. Dressing mode is one of the best ways you can brand yourself. Remember you are advertising yourself and you should stand out as possible. A noticeable tie, a perfectly ironed suit accompanied with a cool hairstyle will give you a sense of touch and style. However, your dress should align with the kind of work you are applying for. Different departments will have different dressing code.

2. Turn Off Devices.

Your phone can be a fundamental tool during a job search. Most of your advertising will depend on your phone. There are also many other things you do with your phone, such as contacting friends through social media platforms. However, everything has its own time, and when it comes to interviewing, you should switch it off before you start your interview. Any employment agency Toronto will not choose a candidate who keeps picking calls amid the interview.

3. Team Player.

The interviewer might want ask you why you decided to leave your previous employer. While you will be tempted to say all the negative things about your previous employer, try not to. First, it is not professional to say negative comments about your former employer. Also, the job agency may get a feeling that you might badmouth about them when you leave.

Also note that you keeping a good working relationship with your former employee is good since companies change quickly due to such things as mergers, economy adjustments and even loses. Your former company might get a new management and you will find yourself crossing your paths with the company again.

4. Humble but Confident.

Even if you are the best CEO in your country, it pays to be humble. You don’t have to show how good you are when walking in that interview room. However, you need to be confidence in what you are doing.

Looking bored and walking clumsily might show that you are not even interested in the job. you should be excited about the interview even if you don’t get the job.
