There’s one thing that a lot of people fail to realize about the job hiring process. Although, the HR Officer represents the company during the process, they are employees too. They did not create the opening, and they are as human as you are. There are some things that you do that can just make their job harder for them. And why would you want to be the reason why the person who determines whether you get a job or not is unhappy?
Don’t Show Up Late To Interviews
Showing up late to an interview obviously doesn’t look great for you. But beyond that also, your interviewer is just going to keep getting more and more irritated the longer you don’t show. That’s not a great foundation to start an interview on.
Put Your Phone Number On Your CV
Imagine missing a job opportunity because the HR Officer couldn’t get in touch with you. If you use multiple sim cards, make sure to put all of those numbers on your CV. And always check your CV before you send it to make sure that the one you’re sending has your most recent contact information.
Acknowledge Emails When You Receive Them
When you receive an email about an interview or anything really during the hiring process, you should absolutely confirm receipt. Every single time. This allows your HR Officer to have some confidence in your professionalism.
