This workshop will allow delegates to learn, and practise, skills to increase their chances of success when applying for jobs
We explain the selection process, from task design, to job description, to person specification, to job advert. This helps participants understand the process from the employer’s perspective and therefore the criteria that they need to address.
We ask participants to consider what an employer might look for on an application form, in a covering letter and in a CV. We give examples of what employers look for and the behaviour of those sifting applications.
We ask participants to consider what an interviewing panel is looking for.
We give examples of things that will make your interview memorable for the interviewer (in a good way).
We ask participants to consider what tricky questions they might be asked, and how to deal with them.
We give examples of different types of questions and how these can be responded to.
