A job interview can be an exciting yet nerve-wracking prospect. You have successfully gained an interview following your job application and now you have the chance to secure the job itself with a face to face meeting with your potential employers.

Writing or adjusting your CV can be a difficult task for most people looking to find work. However, it can be even tougher if you are trying to write a CV when you have no work experience related to the job you are applying for.
Job hunting can be a confusing and stressful time particularly when you see an entry-level job advert that requires a certain amount of experience in the industry to even be considered. That’s right, even entry-level jobs ask for experienced candidates! Thankfully, the team at A Star Recruitment have put together a handy guide on how to write a CV with no work experience. (more…)
Without a well-written CV you will struggle to even get an interview for a job that you are applying for, therefore it is important for every candidate looking for a new job to eradicate any common CV mistakes before they submit their next application.
Your CV, and cover letter, are usually the first correspondence you will have with the recruiter handling your application or the company you are applying for a job with. It allows you to get off to the best possible start in your application. However, if it includes several errors or mistakes, submitting your CV is as far as your application will go.
Starting a new job can make you both nervous and excited in equal measure. It could be a job in a field you are familiar with or a completely fresh start. You could know a few people who also work at the same place or you may not know anybody. The top and bottom of it is that you want to make a good first impression with your new colleagues. As you approach the first day of your new job, A Star Recruitment have put together a list of handy tips on what to do on your first day of work.
Your working life takes up a massive amount of your time throughout your life. A lot of people work at least five days per week and many also work overtime. Add to that the amount of time people spend looking for other jobs or discussing their work then it’s clear to see how important finding a career you love is.
Many workers are in a job that simply pays their bills but doesn’t offer them any excitement, often leaving them unmotivated in the workplace and lacking drive. It is our job here at A Star Recruitment to help to find you a job you love.
