Interviewing – whether for a new job or a different position with your current employer – can be a nerve-racking experience. You hope that your qualifications speak for themselves, but they may not be enough to make you stand out from a pool of equally talented applicants. Getting called for an interview is an achievement in itself, since only a small proportion –about 10% of applicants are selected. However, acing the interview is the ultimate goal.
In ReadySetWork, we do not only give students the knowledge needed to excel in the world of work, we also give them the experience. So last Saturday – 26th August 2017 – being the 8th Week of ReadySetWork 2017, Student had opportunity to experience firsthand a job interview session. Across the three campuses, students dressed appropriately for job interviews took turns to present themselves before the panels with their CVs and cover letters at the RSW Mock Interviews.
