When you begin your job search, either during your final years of university or once you graduate, interviews and assessment centres can be daunting. Many graduates have never experienced the selection methods used by employers and are unable to showcase their skills accordingly.
Although there is lots of advice online, it does not give you the chance to practise and gain unique 1:1 feedback, taking into account your own personal skills and experience.
Our Graduate Career Services aim to assist any undergraduates or graduates applying to internships, job interviews and/or assessment days. We will help you highlight your competencies, extract your transferable skills and show you how to describe and explain them when answering interview questions. You will also learn how to prepare and present yourself and/or how to act in group assessment exercises.
What we offer:
Our services can be tailored to suit your needs, whether you are looking for career guidance, CV and interview training or preparation for a specific interview process or graduate scheme.
Interview training and preparation (2 hours)
Cost: £250.00* by Skype
This is a personalised service that will allow participants to gain feedback on their CV and interview technique, through a 1:1 session with a trained consultant. This will build an understanding of their transferable skills and competencies, and how to use them to answer common interview questions, provided in our interview handbook. Participants will then complete a formal interview and gain feedback on their performance. The training given can either be specific to a particular sector, or more general advice for any internships or interviews they may attend.
Psychometric profiling and career advice (1.5 hours)
Cost: £300 (including the cost of psychometric assessment and report) * by skype
This is an opportunity to discover where participant’s skills lie, in order to establish the right role and work environment for them. This will include a biographical interview with CV advice, as well as an analysis and feedback on their psychometric profiling. This could be particularly useful for graduates who are unsure of what their next career move should be.
Telephone or Skype Interview Preparation (1 hour)
By telephone or Skype
Many internships or graduate schemes will require a telephone interview before participants get face to face. As email is so commonly used now, many graduates are unaware how to present themselves over the phone. Our telephone interview preparation will provide CV advice, an insight and understanding of common competency questions, with answers tailored to experience- as well as training on how participants are being assessed during a telephone interview.
