Would academic achievements really affect the chances of being recruited?
“Yes, it is especially important when you just started out your career, because you do not have any prior working experience.” answered Adam Tan, CEO of JobRewards. “But once you work, it will slowly become irrelevant because recruiters will start to look at your working experience and your job role to evaluate you.”
What (are the) dos and don’ts when (you) go for an interview?
“Always dress smart and arrive at the interview venue earlier. Remember to bring a pen as you will need it to fill up forms and answer interview assessments. Also, do your homework to understand the company’s product, vision and culture and be polite to your interviewer(s).” answered John Ling, CMO of JobRewards.
How to avoid (being) nervous during (an) interview?
“If you are not very comfortable when speaking with strangers, which applies to almost everyone of us here; focus on that person’s (interviewer) nose or forehead. This is a trick I always use when I want to be seen as giving eye contact with the person I am talking to without staring directly into their eyes.” explained Sim, COO of JobRewards.
