Carlie Santoro, recruitment manager at Quest Professional, said that attitude can often make up for areas where applicants may be lacking slightly.
"If they are maybe lacking in experience, then they should really demonstrate in the interview that they have got the right attitude, that they are willing to start from the beginning and that they are as flexible as they can be in terms of what they'll look at doing," she advised.
The key thing is to be flexible, have a positive attitude and mindset and to be open to a number of different opportunities," the expert pointed out.
Her advice follows the recent publication of research by LearnDirect, which found that a quarter of jobseekers do not know how to create a good impression in interviews, with 42 per cent of employers saying the majority of candidates fail to impress them during interviews.
