Struggling with your interview technique? Haven’t had an interview before? Recruitmentology were asked by the Independent to comment on expert techniques on how to land your dream job.

During your working lifetime you will be given so much advice on how to prepare for interviews and apply for jobs. We believe that there are core principles you should adopt to stand out from the crowd.

Om Ruparel is the founder of digital recruitment agency, Recruitmentology.

He sees candidates for a living, and more often than not, those candidates have the same sorts of degrees and experience. “I tell them: you all have degrees from good universities, you all have a 2.1 or better, you all have retail and office and admin experience but you need to stand out!” Om says.

“Think about what you’ve done that makes you better – that makes you really passionate about the job you’re going for.

No matter how old they are, I always tell my candidates about the importance of extra-curricular activities – creating and maintaining your own website, or that of a friend, playing some kind of sports in a team environment or doing charity work of some kind.

“But most importantly, no matter what qualifications you have, a positive personality, the right attitude and the aptitude to learn are the most valuable things for an employer.”
