Recording: Sailing through an independent consultant interview

March 1, 2017 Katy Roberts

Whether you’re sitting on the side of the table that is doing the interviewing, or whether you’re on the opposite side being interviewed, successfully maneuvering your way through an independent consultant interview can be a daunting process – especially if this is the first time you’re involved in an interview that is not for a permanently-employed position.

In this live broadcast, we discussed the evolution of The Interview – and how perceptions are changing from the full-time to the interim, from the permanent-hire to the contingent. We highlighted tips and techniques that will enable you to successfully interview, or successfully be interviewed within a new world of work.

Joining the panel for this broadcast will be Talmix’s Head of Talent Oliver Luscombe, accompanied by Independent Consultant Yogesh Gupta who, together, discussed and shared their own experiences, both as the one recruiting, and the one being recruited.

Topics that we’ll be covering will relate to:

  • Key skills that Clients look for in independent consultant interviews
  • How Independent Consultants can make themselves stand out from the crowd
  • Tips to prepare yourself for interviewing an Independent worker
  • Bad habits to avoid in interviews (as both the client, and the applicant)
  • And more.
