Year 11 Big Interview Day
On Thursday 20th October volunteers from our local business community and beyond came to RES to support our Year 11 Big Interview Day.
As an Enterprise School we are committed to preparing students in the best way possible for their future working lives and at the end of Year 10 students took part in workshops to produce their own CV and writing a covering letter for a job that have an interest in for when they leave school. These are the documents that would form the basis of the interview today with their interviewer.
27 volunteers arrived at RES from a range of different businesses to start the task of interviewing around 200 students in one morning! We had an amazing response this year from the following companies ~
Without such support this day would not be possible so we are enormously grateful for all that took time out of their valuable working day to help our students.
Students spent time with their interviewer discussing the job role, their qualities and the job they had applied for whilst the interviewer asked them many different questions which they may face in a real interview situation. This experience of applying for a job and having an interview will be in some cases the first time some of our students have had a real-life interview. The students were given feedback from the interviewer which they can use along with interview skills to take forward with them and use when they find themselves in a real life interview situation either for a job or a college place. All students also received a Certificate signed by their interviewer to confirm their attendance of the day.
