Students hail success of jobs and interview skills showcase
Published at 15:37, Tuesday, 03 June 2014
A RANGE of employability skills including CV writing, interview techniques and effective job searches helped to make a college’s employability event a great success.
Furness College’s #successfc included mock interviews with BAE Systems and Siemens to give students a real flavour of what firms look for from an interviewee and proved a great hit with students.
Inspira gave a number of interesting presentations on employability skills with Futures4me presenting an entertaining hands-on activity to help polish interview techniques.
The police gave a hard-hitting but very popular presentation on the impact of crime on employability.
Laurence Harvey, from Laurence Harvey Training gave students an understanding of “unconscious bias” in a very entertaining way. It inspired the students who took part, included Leon Wilson. The 18-year-old business student, of Dalton, said: “His presentation was fun and interactive and easy to understand. It gave me things to think about as a student and as an employee in the future.”
The U-Cube generated a lot of interest in the college – with many students thinking it was a giant bouncy castle.
The U-Cube is set up like a Big Brother diary room where small groups of students were interviewed to camera about a range of issues concerning the college including equality and diversity.
Furness College said it was a great week and has thanked everyone who took part.
