Mount Carmel held their annual Mock Interview Day for Year 11 pupils.
Every pupil had an appointment for a mock job interview with an industry professional from a sector that relates to their career aspirations.
Raising Aspirations Coordinator Mr Barratt co-ordinated the day and was assisted by two Year 11 Raising Aspirations ambassadors Grace and Riley.
Involved in the event were 17 interviewers from a diverse range of companies and organisations including 2 who provided remote online interviews.
We really appreciate the time that the interviewers kindly provided to support the students with what is a crucial life skill.
Students provided personal statements to their interviewers prior to their interview and they all did some excellent research into the companies in attendance. They also came dressed in their smart interview gear to enable them to get a feel for a real life interview situation.
Feedback from interviewers has been overwhelmingly positive, with the students frequently being mentioned as polite young people who are a credit to Mount Carmel.
A huge well done to every Year 11 student who took part, and a huge thank you to all of our interviewers.
If anyone (parents, employers, and especially past pupils) would like to take part in this or other future careers events, please get in touch with school.
