From an applicant’s perspective, each application is associated with efforts, costs, and additional overhead. Too many applications is an expensive affair, while too few applications is risky. Contextual Advisory™ is our proprietary methodology based on best practices derived from hundreds of client engagements. This methodology ensures a close fit between applicants’ profile and the employers’ expectations. Through our proprietary tools, such as Contextual Maps, Profile Builder, Skill Matrix, Atlas, Keyword Miner, Atlas, Persona Canvas, and Visage, we analyse each and every aspect of an applicant package to ensure that the documents are both, machine and human-friendly. On top of these sophisticated tools, we use our experience as hiring managers to advise candidates on the empirical factors of the recruitment process. Furthermore, we aggregate job market data and job market performance data on a weekly and monthly basis respectively. Using this data, we derive insights that we share with our clients to give them a competitive edge. We regularly publish these insights on our social media channels and share our reports with our partner organisations.
INTRVU is run by graduates of elite European institutions with decades of professional experience in Europe. We leverage our backgrounds to deliver client success. Most organisations have formally-defined sets of value drivers – competencies, skills, and behaviours – that guide how recruitment happens across a complex job market ecosystem. These value drivers anchor our holistic, integrative approach, which uses evidence-based techniques to develop practical solutions to the challenges our clients face during the internship / job search process. During our advisory sessions, we focus on a clearly-defined value driver that fits into the larger goal. Coupled with our advisory approach, we focus on, not only the short-term priority of landing an offer, but also the strategic career aspects that have a farther reaching impact. By carefully listening to our clients and asking probing, and sometimes difficult, questions, we examine your clients’ assumptions and desired goals. Then, we examine all the parameters of our clients’ needs. Informed by all this information, we deliver the appropriate support to our clients. Focussing on value drivers permits us to sequence and prioritise our workload during the advisory process to reduce the time to deliver value, and then track progress based on value delivered rather than via time and resources expended.
The vast majority of job seekers submit the same application packages based on CV and Cover Letter templates (e.g. Europass) they downloaded off the Internet. This ‘spray-and-pray’ approach may eventually land you an interview. However, recruiters that review hundreds of applications a day may not easily recall your application at the end of the day. The job market is getting competitive each passing day and any job opening attracts hundreds, if not thousands of job applications. To manage this deluge of candidate applications, most companies use an Applicant Tracking System, which serves as a filter before a human reviewer gets to pick up your application. Correspondingly, you application should be both, machine and human-friendly. At INTRVU, we equip our clients with tools, frameworks, and methodologies that not only help structure their application content, but also exude professionalism and aesthetics for human reviewers. Furthermore, we review each application document through the eyes of a hiring manager and customise each each component of the application to make our clients stand out in the competitive admissions landscape. Such diligence ensures application success, as our track record can vouchsafe.
