Mock interviews for Year 10 students and VCAL students Thursday 18th May
All of the Year 10 students are to be congratulated on how hard they have worked in preparing for the mock interviews which are being held on Thursday 18th May. Students have completed a resume, a cover letter and job application. They have had a session on the importance of a good first impression, and had a guest speaker from our community business partner Monier give them tips on interview techniques! Students are encouraged to prepare well for the interview by researching the company and being prepared for answering questions well. At this stage we have about 28 community business partners coming in to interview the students.
Information has been sent home to families regarding both Mock interviews and Work experience (27th Nov - 8th December). The objective of work experience is to experience the world of work in an industry you are interested in pursuing in the future. Students need to be securing their work experience now by approaching businesses in career areas that interest them.
Where will the Jobs be in 2020?
Each year, the Department of Employment produces employment projections by industry, occupation and region for the following five-year period. In other words, where the jobs might be! These employment projections are designed to provide a guide to the future direction of the labour market. These forecasts are there to guide students, whilst they are reminded that there are always unforeseen circumstances that could affect these suggestions.
