Take the sting out of interviews for your students!
CareerStart has developed a resource to support careers advisers as they assist students with interview skills, whether it's for a part-time job, permanent employment, or even tertiary study.
The aim is to narrow the gap between candidate and interviewer through a step-wise guide to preparation, the interview itself, and follow up. Worksheets reinforce each step, with master copies sent to careers coaches.
'Job Interview Success' is a concise and relatable guide, and an invaluable teaching tool. Run individual coaching sessions, group workshops or have a copy on hand to lend students.
