Series Two

Off the back of the success of Series 1 where real people did get hired Ricky was delighted to release a second series. In this series Ricky interviews another set of 6 guests who each have experience throughout the years representing a business, a brand or are a well know personality who has had to ensure they remain positive and productive no matter what. Two traits which are essential if you are wondering “How to Get Hired”. The production of this series started before the 2020 lockdown due to Covid-19 which is why you will see a change of format with 3 being recorded on site at the Hyper Recruitment Solutions office, and the other three remotely via zoom. To keep consistency across the series Ricky again asked each guest the same 20 questions in a quickfire round which are now included at the end of the full podcast audio, but can be seen in isolation by clicking the YouTube link under each guests name below.
