Leading Retailer Monsoon joins BeMyInterviewer.co.uk

27 May, 2008 – Karen Heather, the HR Director at Monsoon Accessorize Ltd, has joined BeMyInterviewer.co.uk – Jobsite’s interactive video-based website which enables jobseekers to practise for interviews.

She joins leading bosses including Duncan Bannatyne, Ruth Badger and Jacqueline Gold in asking candidates key interview questions on topics including money, experience, personality and selling yourself.

Launched in February 2008 BeMyInterviewer offers a completely new way to prepare for interviews. In the first three months that it’s been live, BeMyInterviewer has attracted over 105,000 unique visitors to the site, with almost 960,000 videos streamed. BeMyInterviewer has also increased applications to Jobsite’s clients’ vacancies, with almost 14,000 candidates coming through to view vacancies on Jobsite following their interaction with the interviewers on BeMyInterviewer.

BeMyInterviewer is updated regularly with new interviewers and is a helpful preparation tool for recruiters who are sending candidates to interviews. Equally, HR Directors and those responsible for interviewing will find BeMyInterviewer a useful resource in learning how their peers conduct interviews and get the most out of candidates.

As the latest new addition to BeMyInterviewer, Karen Heather is ideal for any candidate jobhunting for executive roles. Karen Heather interviews and recruits for Board Level Directors and is the final stage interviewer for Senior Management roles where appropriate. She complements fellow BeMyInterviewer panellist Jacqueline Gold, CEO of Ann Summers and Knickerbox, to help prepare candidates who are jobhunting in the retail sector.

Commenting on the skills involved in interviewing, Karen Heather says; “Over my career, I have learnt a lot about what makes a great retailer. At any level, it has to be about someone who loves serving their customer, has a strong passion for the product they sell and has an energy and enthusiasm for what they do and how they do it. When I’m interviewing I’m looking at the candidate’s behaviour, that’s not to say that skills and experience aren’t important, but its behaviour that drives performance. I’m pleased to be part of BeMyInterviewer and hope my different style of behavioural questioning will interest and challenge potential interview candidates”
