Recently we attended the ICCI Careers Readiness Day – an event helping students prepare for their career. Here are a selection of the most popular questions we were asked and our answers…
What is the recruiting process like? What can we expect?
The recruitment process is tailored to each individual based off of your experience and where we can best help, whether that is through our recruitment team or assisting you with your direct applications.
In a consulting session with one of our team members, we would talk you through this in detail. The main things to have with you are some kind of CV (We can help you with this if it isn’t perfect yet!), professional references, a police clearance and most importantly, your best self!
What are some questions I can ask in an interview?
Here are some questions you can ask the interviewer:
- What are the day-to-day responsibilities?
- What do you enjoy most about working here?
- What’s the team dynamic like?
- Are there opportunities to grow within the company?
- Is there anything else that you want me to cover or expand on?
- What is the next step in the recruiting process?
What are some ways that you tailor career advice for an individual with a disability?
We advise our clients that it is unlawful to discriminate against those with disabilities and that “reasonable adjustments” should be required if hired.
Our advice to candidates would be to come in and meet with our Consultants so that we can help guide you through the recruitment process. If applying directly to jobs, find roles that inspire you and allow you to be the best version of yourself. You know what makes you comfortable and what you will enjoy.
Do you have any training programs available?
Yes, we do! Our training is available for all on-island job-seekers in any industry and is aimed at arming you with the skills to be a top candidate regardless of your profession.
If you would like to learn more about our Career Training programs, get in touch with Hannah at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How often are Caymanians hired through Nova?
On average, we place three Caymanians per week; some months that number is higher, and some are lower depending on the season and our client’s needs.
