CVs and interviews and arguably the most integral parts of the job application process. Your CV is the very first communication with a potential employer, it’s a key element in being shortlisted and it’s your chance to impress. On the other hand, the job interview is all about securing an opportunity and proving you are the right person for the job. It can also help you to decide if the role and company are right for you.
Mastering these key elements of the job application process can be difficult, which is why this February at Pearson College London we partnered with Give A Grad Go and many other employers to deliver mock interviews online and a CV Clinic for our students.
As part of Work Fitness Week at Pearson College London, the CV and Mock Interview for students session aimed to prepare our students for real job applications. We invited recruitment specialists and hiring managers to share their expertise.
Each student had a 30-minute, 1-2-1 slot with an employer where they got to practice mock interview questions and answers in a friendly and supportive environment for some mock interview practice online. The mock interview practice also gave the students immediate feedback on how to strengthen their communication skills and prepare responses to common mock interview questions. They also had the chance to gain some top tips on brushing up their CVs.
Some of our students were lucky enough to be paired with recruitment experts at Give A Grad A Go for the online mock interview practise! Check out what they had to say about their experience:
“I found the session incredibly helpful; I feel like I have gained in deep insight into how to conduct myself during an interview from the mock interviews with Give A Grad A Go” – Second Year Business Management with Marketing Student
“Being able to hear external opinions on myself during an interview situation was very useful in the mock interviews questions and answers. It encouraged me to have more confidence within myself and I’ve also got some valuable feedback about improving my CV!” – First Year Business Management Student
"I benefited hugely from being able to meet 1-on-1 with a recruitment expert from Give A Grad A Go for the mock interview questions and CV workshop because I was able to lead the session and choose what we discussed” – First Year Business Management with Entrepreneurship Student
