I came across a really interesting recruitment article this week on the informative Business Insider UK website that I thought was worth sharing on Inform.Ed.
Although it’s titled, ‘key to writing a winning covering letter’ there’s much more on offer here than meets the eye. It initially taking the form form of advice on covering letters from Edith Cooper, Managing Director, Global Head of Human Capital Management at Goldman Sachs, the American multinational investment banking firm. However, the really rich content comes at the end of the article in a 30 minute Q&A interview with the HR chief.
Whether you are interested in a career in investment banking or not, many of the views are transferable to any sector and gives an insight into how a major employer thinks and acts in the recruitment process.
Topic covered range from interview dos and don’ts, what they as recruiters expect of candidates to impressive covering letters – it’s well worth watching. Check it out here.
