Deciding to look for a new job is one of the most important decisions you can make, but discovering new opportunities to climb the career ladder can be a very exciting journey. The rewards can be immense but to be successful in gaining a new position you do need to put in some good ground work. It’s important to prepare thoroughly for all stages of the process, because the first interview is as important as the last. It is very easy to relax in the final stages of the interview process and assume that the job offer is going to arrive to you on a plate. Our advice is always to treat every meeting with a potential employer as your first. You need to prepare for every meeting thoroughly and know what is expected.
