Students Gain Experience in Real-Life Job Interviews

50 Year 12 students have been selected to take part in a Careers interviews project run by BEE Interviews.

The project requires students to apply for an advertised job at Marks and Spencer and then undergo an interview by a professional volunteer from the business community who then provides verbal and written feedback on the student’s performance. Students submitted their CVs and covering letters and the interviews took place on Zoom, earlier this week.

Students worked in groups so they were also able to learn from each other about interview technique and how to perfect it.

Feedback from students and employers has been excellent with some students performing so well they have been offered work experience by the interviewer.

This is the second time JCoSS has worked with BEE and this time we have been able to fund the project following a successful bid for money from the Mayor of London’s Careers Booster Fund.
