On Wednesday 23rd January Year 10 students had the opportunity to take part in Mock Interviews where local business people were able to provide feedback and guidance on CVs and cover letters, as well as their performance in the interviews. The interviewers spoke very highly of our students and left with a wonderful opinion of Riddlesdown Collegiate.
Many students chose to attend in business dress and they should be commended on how smart they looked, having selected appropriate clothing. Students have said that whilst they were very nervous just before going in, the interviewers were ‘not scary’ and instead very helpful.
I am confident the day was a fantastic learning experience and it is now important that students act upon the feedback received and make improvements to their CVs.
