As if interviews aren’t hard enough already, those pesky people who are looking to employ you, tend to throw in some hard questions too; I mean, it’s not like the interview process isn’t hard enough already.
So, the team here at Paramount Personnel have got together and come up with the best way of answering those darn tricky questions, enjoy!
DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN THREE WORDS…
The reason this question is asked is to find out if you’re self-aware and authentic. It’s about figuring out how you think and operate.
When answering it, consider using words that describe the way that you think. Mentioning that...
We’re still in January and the “New Year New You” vibe, remains strong. At this time of the year, a career move can be at the forefront of your mind.
Finding a new job is exciting; it’s fun and exhilarating all at the same time. What tends to be a trickier task though, is resigning from your current job.
If your career move has been brought about because of the current position you hold, and your lack of love for it, we highly recommend that you think very hard about the way that you resign....

Who cares if I swear on Facebook, it’s only between me and my mates?
We’ll tell you who cares, your employer… or more importantly, any potential future employer!
You’re not doing anything illegal by posting slightly naughty words or the odd risqué picture or quote on your Facebook page, but you should really bare in mind, how other people might see it.

TV chefs are nothing new. The Galloping Gourmet (Graham Kerr) hit our screens way back in the 1960’s and there has been a never ending stream of celebrity chefs ever since. These cooks, these inventors, these miracle workers with raw ingredients have been thrilling us with their wares for more years than I care to remember and yet, still more TV shows are announced and new faces appear.Talent
