 Northamptonshire and Milton Keynes Secondary School Events Autumn 2019

 

Shenley Brook End School – Milton Keynes

Year 13 mock interviewing event – Thursday 3rd October 2019 08.30am – 12.00pm

Shenley Brook End School would really welcome you to come in and join them in supporting their Year 13 students with their mock interview session. We are holding this event to support the year 13’s before they start commencing job/apprenticeship/university interviews and to give them advice and support on how they prepare and conduct themselves at interview. You will work with a group of 4 students where they will still have 1-1 interview with you whilst the other 3 observe and then they will swap round so they all have a turn. I will put together a generic job spec to help give structure to the interview and I also have a list on typical interview questions that can also be used. WE would very much welcome all your input with the interviews and for you to share your experiences and any odd questions that may have been asked of you at any interview you attended. We will of course provide plenty of refreshments including tea, coffee, Danishes, savouries and cakes.
