Nowadays, more and more candidates who apply for Household Staff jobs are invited for an initial video interview prior to a face to face meeting with their potential employer.
It makes sense because interviews via Skype, Whatsapp, Facetime, etc save a lot of time for both an employer and a candidate, and help avoid unnecessary travel expenses, especially if the candidate is abroad.
That is why Morgan & Mallet International decided to provide some tips on how to prepare yourself for a successful video interview.
Those are some basic things that you can do in order to make a good impression on your potential employer.
Consider a video interview as a privilege of technological progress that was made to save your time, especially if you are looking for a job in other countries.
When candidates are invited for an interview, they try to prepare themselves for it as thoroughly as possible.
First of all, they try to find useful tips on the Internet like what kind of questions to expect and how to answer properly.
But the thing is that a professional recruiter will always have an individual approach to each interview because all the interviews as well as candidates and their experiences are different, each position (especially in a private household sector) is different.
In this article we would like to provide some information on how normally Morgan & Mallet International conducts interviews with candidates, what information we pay attention to and how we decide if the interview is successful.
Morgan & Mallet International’s main goals are to find a suitable candidate, to save the time of our clients while looking for household staff, and to make the recruitment process carefree for them, that is why our interviews normally last for one hour in order to understand if the candidate will be suitable for a particular position.
In the example of a Chauffeur's vacancy, we will try to explain the logic of our interviews and what we expect to hear from a candidate. Our consultants pay special attention to candidate’s skills during the interview.
After the candidate has passed this part of the interview successfully, we will discuss their experience working for private families or clients.
Our consultants will ask the reasons why the candidate left the previous positions and in what environment he/she worked. This part of the interview will help to understand if the candidate will be able to stay in a particular position long.
The consultants of Morgan & Mallet International always have an individual approach to each request that we receive from our clients.
