Competitive Strategies for Assessment Centres and Job Interviews

Book Here

One day workshops for graduate job-seekers, limited to 8 attendees. Includes pre-event Skype interview.

The workshops are designed for graduates who are preparing for an assessment centre or interview. You may be re-focusing on finding a job after post Uni travels, or preparing to graduate this summer. You will have an idea of what jobs you are targeting. We simply want to raise your chances of landing the ideal opportunity.

In order to make the day as personalized as possible we limit numbers to eight. A Skype mock interview is conducted in advance which is specifically tailored to your target job. This means that I can give you individual feedback on your interview technique and CV when we meet face-to-face.

The workshop agenda is designed to develop your assessment centre and interview strategies, and the content is tailored to the employment sectors that are of interest to you. There are plenty of opportunities to put new skills into practice, for instance, integrating winning narratives into your interview conversation.

My approach is unique in the way it encourages you to think about personal branding, and how it improves your professional swagger through techniques taken from the performing arts. This means you should come prepared for a day of imaginative interrogation and experimentation!

The objective is to leave you feeling completely confident – ready for the toughest assessment centre or interview.
