Acing the job interview: Career workshop highlights
MISSED out on the career workshop we held last month about how to ace the job interview? We share the highlights and learnings from the night!
We had such a blast at the career workshop held last month aimed at helping international students and fresh grads sharpen their job interview skills.
From having a go at crafting and answering interview questions, deciding on what would be a suitable ‘get-up’ for attending interviews for different jobs, to true-to-life scenarios that gave students the chance to put themselves in the shoes of not just the interviewee but also the employer – it was a uber hands-on workshop that provided plenty of learnings as well as laughs.
And the mock interviews!
The mantra that night was to not be afraid to make mistakes – it was the best way to learn, and better to muck up at the workshop than at a real job interview right?
We want to give a special shout out to our guest panel Olivia Doyle from Swinburne University, Sheila and Gregory Allen from Noted Careers, and Mia Kennett from OurSay, who shared their knowledge and expertise in the interview and recruitment process, and provided constructive feedback during the mock interviews.
