Royds Hall Community School
Interviewing can be a very stressful and tough process, and even more so for young people who are new to the world of working and inexperienced.
Each year we are invited to interview some Year 11 children to offer them real life experience of preparing for, and sitting an interview.
Our staff members involved in this get a lot out of it, both on a personal and professional level, and really value the opportunity to be able to give something back to the local community and do something that really makes a difference.
Many of the students admitted that they were understandably nervous in the build up to the interviews, but still positive about the help this process gives them, so that they not only truly enjoy the experience, but that they feel positive about undertaking future interviews.
Students were asked 'What did you think about the Mock interview process?'
Tom said: “A bit nerve racking but I really enjoyed it and it made me a lot more comfortable in my real college interview. I got a place at my first choice college too!!”
Hannah said: “He made me feel relaxed as I was very nervous. He seemed genuinely interested in what I was telling him”.
Fiza said: “It was a very different experience having to speak to adults that weren't my teachers but it was very useful when planning for my actual college interview'”
