Practising interview skills.
We run monthly Mock Interviews with a volunteer interviewer who has expertise in management and recruitment. These sessions consist of a 30 minute mock interview followed by a 30 minute feedback slot which the young person’s mentor can also attend.
Mock Interviews are designed to build the confidence of the young person, develop their interview technique and provide feedback that can be worked on with their mentor.
“Doing the mock interview helped me build my confidence and to get a bit better at interviews… I know how to get prepared. When I did the interview for the job I have now, I was nervous at first but I was fine. It went really well. I felt really confident and happy. I answered all the questions and I think they liked my CV.”
