REPLAY: Recruiter Pet Peeves

By  | 

Did you miss all or part of our discussion on fashion industry recruiter and hiring manage pet peeves? Not to worry, we have the replay here:


1. Unprepared for the interview

Examples of not being prepared for the interview include: not researching the hiring company, unable to answer basic interview questions, asking generic questions, etc…

A great way to be prepared is to practice answering common interview questions and to have an elevator pitch.

2. Poorly written resume/cover letter (no cover letter)

With spell check, grammar check, online templates and job search blogs, there is no excuse for a poorly written resume these days. We have compiled quite a few articles on resume writing specifically for fashion industry professionals.
