Professional Interview Day Year 11
Professional Interview Day
Professional Interview Day is another opportunity we offer to our students, in order to help prepare them for real life. Students will complete an application form and CV including a personal statement for one of the ‘vacancies’ in their booklets. On Professional Interview Day, students will be allocated a 30 minute interview slot and will be interviewed by one of up to 20 volunteers in order to experience what a real job interview may feel like. They will be expected to come to school in professional dress appropriate for an interview.
The skills they learn for this day are vital not only for the world of work but also in support of their college applications process. We encourage students to create CVs and personal statements that they can continue to build on and adapt for different purposes.
