HELPING STUDENTS PREPARE FOR JOB INTERVIEWS

As part of our commitment to our local community, we’ve been supporting a number of initiatives designed to help young people make their way in the business world.


In April, we took part in an event organised by Ahead Partnership which helps businesses like ours play a hands-on role in the community. The event , held at Ashworth Barracks in Doncaster, was to provide interview practice for 16-19 year olds currently studying vocational qualifications and to give them feedback to help them improve their chances of being successful at interviews in the future.


Together with other local businesses, we conducted mock interviews and provided feedback on things like language, appearance, question answering styles, body language etc.


“The aim of the event was to give the young people the opportunity to practice speaking about themselves and their strengths, and to give them an understanding of what businesses are looking for during an interview, and how they can improve presentation of themselves,” said Farah Yasin, from Pegler Yorkshire’s Marketing Department.


Feedback from the students was very positive so hopefully we’ve helped to make the prospect of job interviews less daunting!
