Through this talent forward thought series, we at the CIPD, in collaboration with a range of experts and thought leaders in the field, want to start the debate about future talent strategies and identify some of the macro and micro challenges that are likely to determine our approaches. That is not to say that we will all need to respond to these issues in the same way, rather the themes discussed here should inform the way we develop our unique talent strategies linked to our specific business challenges. And your views as HR and talent practitioners are key to this debate, so we will be seeking out a range of ways to capture your thoughts and engage you in the discussion.

But even the most seasoned professional can use a brush-up on modern interview etiquette before heading in to discuss an opportunity you’re really excited about. In fact, the longer you’ve been working, the more laissez-faire you might feel about your interview skills, especially if you’ve had a few great jobs and feel like they’ve prepared you to talk to anyone.
