It’s been a big year for The Headhunters Blog and we’re taking a look back at some of the most popular posts of 2012. We’ve been happily doling out advice and tips on everything from how to sanitize your social media presence to what’s the best sport for networking.


But topping the list this year (and riding on the infographic trend) was What You Wish You’d Known Before Your Job Interview. Interestingly, two of the top three (and three of the top ten) were about interviewing.

Unsurprisingly most of our posts relate to job search but there has also been great interest in posts about work-life and career advice. It’s also been great to hear back from the job seeker community, with lots of questions and comments coming in!
