Brilliant Project Manager or Programme Manager Yet Irrelevant Interviews? Director Trying to Find the Perfect Talent Match for Your Team & Company Vision?
If an advert or initial screening call doesn’t include information or questions related to the above, then the brief is probably not well qualified.
If your CV and initial call doesn’t reflect the brief, you may be the most talented and accomplished Project Manager or Programme Manager, who doesn’t get a call back or an interview for your dream job.
