Succeeding at Interviews Workshop (Minority Ethnic Women- Non white) – 28th March 2023


You are booking onto ‘Succeeding at Interviews’ – Tuesday 28th March 2023

About the session:

Being offered an interview can be exciting, but also can feel quite daunting. Gain the skills and confidence needed to thrive in an interview situation. This one-day workshop equips women of all professional backgrounds with the practical tools and self-belief to do themselves justice at interviews – no matter what questions they are asked.

Participants will be shown how to identify and communicate their strengths most effectively and structure their answers to convey their suitability for the position they want.  Through practice interviews, participants see themselves as others see them. Feedback from peers and facilitators helps individuals make the best possible impression when it comes to the real thing.
