HR managers report receiving everything from bribes, cards and invitations to coffee from hopeful applicants –does it ever work?

    Simple things like correct spelling, punctuation, knowing what the job is you are applying for and if you get an interview, at least have some knowledge of the company. Tailored resumes are essential to getting an interview.

    In each of our posting, we list the essential behaviours for success within our organization - what it takes to 'fit'. Once interviewed candidate sent me a follow-up email including a copy of the posting with her commentary and examples after each of the behaviours we listed. I thought it was brilliant.
