More about the author of the content
Matthew ran a successful recruitment consultancy New Generation Recruitment, established back in 2008. IRBIS, IBM, Orange Eemployment, Siemens, O’Donnel Griffin belonged to his clients, together with other smaller companies from different parts of the world.
He would probably still work in the field of recruitment, leading interviews and consulting employers, if Iranian security police didn’t arrest him in Tehran on 23rd August 2012, while he was working on one of his recruitment projects in the country.
Iranian authorities accused Matthew of spying for the CIA. He spent six months in notorious Evin Prison, facing harsh conditions of solitary confinement and a possibility of a death sentence.
Iranians eventually released him in February 2013, but after what had happened to him in Iran, he could not return to recruitment anymore. He turns his interest online, helping the job seekers instead of the employers.
In the following years he joined forces with other recruiters and interview coaches, and established both small and big websites in the career niche. AdministrativeAssistantInterviewQuestions.com is one of them.
Matthew still occasionally consults employers and participates in the interviews, but he focuses mostly on his online projects, speaking assignments and writing career.
