ONE VERY HAPPY CANDIDATE!

Written by Pulse Search Wednesday, 10 October 2018 10:49

There’s nothing more satisfying for us than helping our wonderful candidates find work which suits them and their lifestyle. We often meet lots of actors and actresses who require temp work to keep them busy between jobs and last week we received some feedback from a very happy candidate. We wish her all the best with her upcoming job and would like to reiterate that our door is always open!

Hey Brilliant Pulse Team!

I begin my new job in a few weeks and will be visiting family etc. before the hard work kicks in, so I guess today was my last day temping for a while.

I just want to say a massive thank you. You’ve been absolutely brilliant, supportive and got me through what’s been a tough year that’s turned out quite sweet. I don’t know what I would’ve done without you. There’s not many companies around that understand jobbing actors and last minute auditions haha!

Rob you’re amazing!

And... I hope the door's always open to pop back.

HOW TO BE ANNOYING AT INTERVIEW

Written by Pulse Search Friday, 28 September 2018 16:01

Happy Friday everyone!

We saw a great article from the Independent about the most annoying filler words British people use in their writing and speech. Interestingly we’re a nation of speakers who lack confidence, ‘with 60% of us using fillers regularly’ and 55% of us hating our own voice, resulting in us favouring texting over talking.

So we thought we'd share with you the top 5 most annoying filler words and top 5 most used filler words to illustrate what to avoid when writing your CV or interviewing:

Most annoying:

1. Innit, 47% 2. Like, 32% 3. Basically, 22% 4. Err, 21% 5. You know, 20%

Most used:

1. OK, 30% 2. Err, 26% 3. Right, 22% 4. Umm, 20% 5. Actually, 18%

Interviews are daunting enough without the additional worry of using too many filler words. Research your employer to ensure you’re armed with knowledge.  When you’re confident you’re less likely to use filler words and you'll come across more confident and intelligent.

Rest assured when attending an interview organised by us you’ll receive extensive interview prep and guidance leading up to the day, as well as post-interview feedback.
