To all young HardHat Professionals looking for employment – A few words of caution… Having recently sat through numerous interviews for multiple vacancies at our company I thought I would share a few common tips where some young HardHat Professional could have done better.
MY TIPS FOR HARDHAT PROFESSIONALS SEEKING EMPLOYMENT:
Don’t knock your current company.
The Construction and Built Environment industry is a small world and we probably know your boss.
If you talk the talk then be prepared to walk the walk.
There is a thin line between overselling yourself and coming across knowledgeable beyond your years.
Engage with your interviewers.
Remember it’s about the attitude not the qualifications.
When asked about your salary expectations – if your response is market related please make sure you know what that is.
