Elaine Brady, Managing Partner, Barden Leinster, was recently asked to feature in The Irish Times Group, Recruit Ireland, feature on ‘Looking for a new job?’.
The piece asked some of the nation’s top recruiters for advice and insights into helpful tips that will help you stand out from the crowd, from customising your CV to tailoring a cover note and preparing for interview.
During the piece Elaine was asked…
How do you research the company before sending your CV?
“A little research goes a long way. LinkedIn has all of the data, so spend time searching it, stitching team structures and company context together. Use your networks, real and digital, to find out what the company is really like to work for by talking to people who have that first-hand experience. Before the interview ask who will be on the panel and make sure you know about those individuals. You’ll still have blanks to fill in but that’s what first interviews are these days – discovery meetings to get a feel for shared context and for each other.” – Elaine Brady |Managing Partner | Barden Leinster
