Jobseekers have been advised that recruiters could be able to offer them some useful advice when it comes to finding work after being made redundant.
Speaking to Recruiter, Louise White, director at Oyster Retail Recruitment, stressed that as well as helping people to make the right career choice, recruiters can offer advice on interview techniques and CV structure.
She explained that jobseekers who have been made redundant can often come across as seeming "desperate to get a position".
"When we are dealing with redundant candidates, it's managing them the right way for when they are in the interview process," Ms White said.
In related news, writing for Job Dig last month, Mary Elizabeth Bradford claimed that if people put themselves forward for more projects and developments at work, they are more likely to avoid being made redundant as they are demonstrating their skills and value as an employee.
