Interview tips from school careers day.

Interview tips from school careers day

Yesterday I took part in a careers events for Year 9s at Comberton Village College, organised through the Cambridge Area 14-19 Partnership. There were about 20 volunteers from the world of work speaking to the Year 9s either about their career area or job seeking skills such as CV writing. My area was to give advice on interviews and workplace demeanour.

Here is the hand out I prepared for the event, which I thought would make an interesting blog post:


Prep about the company

Treat as a two way exercise

Questions in the interview

Some standard questions you can prepare responses to

First impressions

9 pointers on workplace demeanour

  1. Be prepared to deal and socialise with a wide range of ages and personalities
  2. Professional verbal and written communication – not text speak
  3. Be open to learning new things
  4. Care about the job
  5. Get to know the company
  6. Ask questions
  7. View as a career not just a job
  8. Help others out
  9. Get involved in the fabric of the company
