Although there is lots of advice online, it does not give you the chance to practise and gain unique 1:1 feedback, taking into account your own personal skills and experience.
I thought what was most useful about the event was how a lot of emphasis was put on linking the experiences I had to the key competency skills. The day was extremely useful and very enjoyable.
The competency interview practice was most useful, I am now much more confident to ‘sell’ my skills. It was nice to have the preparation interview in the morning and the formal interview in the afternoon to put the skills you learn into practise. The competency analysis made it very clear exactly what employers are looking for and how I can prove I have them.
