Matching the Right People


Matching the best candidates to the right jobs and creating lasting relationships with Agencies, Brands and Individuals! …It’s all about the right people!


CPG get to know people and companies in-depth, learning about their work lives, who they are as a person, what they enjoy, who they spend time with and what interests them! This enables us to perfectly match them with other people & employers.


Stage 1: Mutual Friends Suggest Someone For You


At this point, neither you nor the employer has met so your recruiter acts as the mutual friend and mediates between you both!


Alternatively, there’s the other scenario of you knowing someone else who’d be a better fit. When it’s an “it’s not you, it’s me scenario” but you have a friend who’s more likely a better fit for that relationship. Not only will you make your friend happy by helping them find their perfect job but because you know them well, it’s more probable it’s their dream too. Recommending them for a job is always highly appreciated, we’ll even thank a recommendation with a referral reward.


Stage 2: First Impressions


First impressions are everything in the dating world, this is also the case in searching a job.

The first thing an employer will learn about you will come from your CV, so if it doesn’t do you justice, they won’t suggest a meeting.


You can avoid your first interview replicating a bad blind date by finding details about the person interviewing you, the business and other people that work there through your recruiter and LinkedIn! Just like looking up a Date on Facebook, this can calm your nerves and give you a sense of familiarity with the interviewer!


Stage 3: The First Date


Like a first date, you will dress to impress for a job interview, displaying your professional style!


Job interviews are usually structured with an employer posing questions about your work history and experience, your personality & what motivates you… all of which are topics of conversation for a first date!


So, make your answers interesting! Tell the employer about your achievements and what you can bring to their business.


Top Tip: Ask questions! Nothing is worse than a date that only talks about themselves and it’s the same for job interviews. The employer wants you to ask questions to prove you are interested in working for them.


Stage 4: The Second Date

The second meeting is an opportunity for the employer to get to know you better, which may involve carrying out a task or presentation for them. This will enable you to show your skills and understand the business’ expectations of you!


Stage 5: Make It Official

The awkwardness is over and you have landed yourself a job offer! Time to relax & celebrate!
