Today, you can expect people making business decisions to check out customers, suppliers and prospective hires on social media and linkedin.
Most people in the hiring seat, will not only look through someone’s CV but also check a prospective candidate’s linkedin profile and in some cases facebook.
The more senior the position, the more that is expected and the greater the competition.
As head-hunters we are driven primarily by the needs and interests of our employer company clients who pay our fees however most of our candidates are not active job seekers, are busy and tend not to have sharpened up CVs nor Linkedin profiles – so we thought it appropriate to give some tips.

In 2011, Arena has relocated its Slough office to Windsor. The new office located between Ascot, Bracknell, Maidenhead and Windsor is easily accessible in the Thames Valley. Located within a large period mansion house, giving us and our clients’a practical and prestigious working environment, and interview facilities.
Often executives at our hiring employer client firms, undertake interviews at our offices – the ability to do so enables them to hire into roles in confidence and many people chose to do so in “cloak and dagger” situations – where the incumbent job holder is not aware his or her position is being replaced.
Arena saw a record number of new starts attributable to hiring demand from next generation vendors in September.
