If someone you know is looking to hire or be hired, please think of us.

We will take good care of anyone you refer. We can answer questions they have about the market or talk through ways to optimise their hiring process. We can even introduce them to other specialist recruiters if their skills are not in areas we know extremely well. So if you're unsure, refer them anyway.

Successful referrals are rewarded with your choice of a gift voucher, donation to charity or community event sponsorship to the value of $1,000. (Eligible three months after successful placement. Referral must be to a client or candidate we are not currently working with.)

Interview tip: Be like Dr Karl

During an interview, explain your train of thought aloud. This allows you to further elaborate on your experience. You will probably end up close to the real answer or even get some help from the interviewer along the way.

I love the way Dr Karl answers science questions on his Triple J radio show. He approaches each question in a humble manner and often starts off with:

“I’m not sure..”

From that point, it’s all aboard Dr Karl’s train of thought until your journey ends at his final answer. The answer may be complete but if not, you know where to find it.

This is a great approach to take during technical job interviews, especially when the interviewer asks a question that is technical trivia (these are the worst kinds of questions).

When you are hit with technical trivia, stay calm and say you’re not sure. Then think out loud working through situations you have been in and make an approximation of what you think the answer is.

It can help you nail tricky technical questions that others are stumped by.
