Candidates services

We work hard to provide full support to all jobseekers.

As part of our efforts to provide an integrative service to candidates, we have partnered up with an experienced Counsellor who provides psychological and counselling support.

Whatever stage you are at in your career, at certain points you may need extra psychological support to boost your performance, self-confidence or whatever may be blocking you from tapping into your full potential.

These sessions will help you address your career and/or personal counselling needs in a neutral and confidential setting.

Some of the issues discussed in Career and Personal Counselling are:

Stress management
Anxiety management
Self-esteem
Self-confidence
Dealing with transition in role responsibilities
Challenges related to a change in job
Handling conflict at the workplace

The sessions are held with Etienne Gatt. Etienne is a warranted Counsellor based in Malta. He has worked with clients of different age brackets and cultural backgrounds. He holds experience predominantly in areas related to Career and Personal issues, Eating Disorders, Domestic Violence and Sexuality.

For more information kindly contact Etienne Gatt directly on etgatt@gmail.com or on +356 79258273.

Your journey with Konnekt

1. Meet

Let's get things started with a meeting

Your application

After you apply, the shortlisting process begins from our end. We review your CV not only in relation to the vacancy you have applied for but also to see whether we have any current opportunities we can match you with. If your application is not suited for the job you applied for, we will send you feedback as to why we could not take your application forward. If it matches the criteria or we think that your background would be a good match for other roles, we will then set an initial interview. This could be held at our offices or remotely if you are not in Malta.

At our offices

We will set up an initial interview at our offices or alternatively via Skype. Whatever the reason may be, be it seeking new horizons or an improvement on your current employment status, our role is to listen and understand your needs on a personal level.

Our meeting

The purpose of this initial meeting is twofold: it gives us valuable insight into your abilities and personality whilst also allowing you the chance to present yourself. Our best tip is for you to treat this meeting as an official interview. We always encourage candidates to be honest and provide unedited responses. Committing yourself to being open and honest with us will put you in a better position for us to help you.

Feedback

You will be given instant feedback on your CV and the interview at the end of your meeting with our recruitment specialist. It is important you view these comments constructively. Our job is to bring out the best of your abilities and help you excel. Our goal is for you to achieve your personal best.

During our interview, some questions might seem to be putting you on the spot. It is important that you are honest with your answers. Anything short of this limits our ability to help you.


2. Act

Following our interview, the matching starts

Building your profile

You will see us taking notes during our interview. This is to help us build a better understanding of you and highlight important details for future reference. When putting you forward for a position to our clients, we don't just send a CV. We also add details derived from our interview to further support your CV.

The matching

Your recruiter will not only start working on the position you applied for, but will also start matching you with other vacancies we would have on-going. In addition, your CV and career interests are discussed internally with colleagues who are working on vacancies which may suit your profile. We do this in order to maximise our efficiency and your return.

Confidentiality is key

We will always contact you for your consent before we forward your CV to our clients. We strongly believe that your job search is your own, and that it should be kept private. We understand the need for confidentiality and discretion to safeguard your current position and/or promotion prospects.


3. Expectations

Client interviews, feedback & the job

Job fit

Feedback on job fit from us is instant, sometimes even at interview stage. We will not set you up to fail. If we find that you are not a good match for the role you applied for, we will, instead, look into and discuss with you other roles which we think will suit your profile. We work tirelessly to ensure your satisfaction, as well as that of our clients, who are very demanding and work with us to present them with the best fit for the vacancy.

The job interview

Once you have been shortlisted by us, we will highlight you with our client. What follows tends to take a little longer since applications may need to be reviewed by more than one person within the company - we ask you to be patient! If you are shortlisted by the client, an interview is set with members of the company you are applying to work with. We will give you pointers and guidelines to help prepare you for this interview. Post interview, we will keep you updated with feedback as soon as we have it, be it negative or positive.

"I ticked all the boxes, I had all the qualification & experience required and I still did not get the job."

We hear this frequently. This may very well be the case, however let us give you some perspective on the job application process.

Not making the selection is not necessarily a reflection on your abilities. Bearing in mind that we only send our clients the candidates who best fit the specific requirements set by them, it is sometimes a matter of them looking into the finer details. In the event of your application not progressing forward, we will look into other opportunities, this will not be the end of the line. In addition, you should also continue to browse our site for other potential vacancies that you feel suited for and feel free to discuss this with your contact at Konnekt. We will always give you our honest feedback on job fit.

With these statistics in mind, it is still possible that you are not one of those 9 candidates! Not making the selection is not necessarily a reflection on your abilities. Bearing in mind that we only send our clients the candidates who best fit the specific requirements set by them, it is sometimes a matter of them looking into the finer details. So, a negative reply is not the end of the line. It is our job to look into other possibilities.
