As a Reservist, your specialist skills and training make you a very valuable asset to any business, so by talking about your membership of the Reserve Forces at your initial interview, you can use the opportunity to tell a prospective employer about the valuable transferable skills you gain – and at no additional cost to them. It also gives you an edge that other candidates may not have.

When it comes to interviewing for a job, personal qualities are as important as technical skills. With the help of Monster, we’ve put together some tips for a successful interview.
