EMPLOYABILITY SKILLS

 

Having the necessary academic requirements are obviously important but we all know the most qualified person doesn't always get the job. Preparation is key from the point of first contact with a prospective employer to the final round of interviews and assessment.

 

APPLICATION FORMS AND CV WRITING

 

For the more mature among us, writing a CV can be a case of deciding which information to leave out. However, if you're starting out on your career it can be much more a case of what skills or experience do I have that would be of interest to my future boss?

 

I like to help students realise they are more ready for working life than they might otherwise think. By allowing them to discover what these things are, or can be quickly obtained, they can in turn be brought to life in CVs and application letters and ultimately build self confidence for the next important stage, the interview.

 

INTERVIEW PRACTICE

 

If you want to convince an interview panel you're worth offering a job to then you first need to convince yourself you're the best offering. Interviews generally follow a standard structure which is available to all candidates, however it's amazing the amount of people that don't prepare for answering expected set questions.

 

Creating a mock interview can help to normalise the situation and give students a chance to practice a variety of techniques and strategies. This can be invaluable for competency based interviews, 'Tell me about a time you demonstrated...'. By having a number of example situations to call upon and the practiced ability of being able to apply them to answer different questions will give you the best chance of coming through what can be a very intense and stressful recruitment process.
