Hadleigh High School – helping the pupils with interview skills development

Last week Matthew was invited to help upcoming school leavers to come to grips with the potential pitfalls of going through job interviews!

Hadleigh High School is the main state funded mixed senior school in the area (part of the South Suffolk Learning Trust) and so, as part of our commitment to supporting local initiatives, Matthew lent his time to help assess candidates along the following lines:

  • Dress/general appearance
  • Attitude/presentation
  • Preparation
  • Application Form
  • Performance at interview

and finally, would the candidate be offered a job?!

‘It takes you back a few years, but I do hope that it was beneficial to the 5 poor souls who had to sit in front of me’, joked Matthew.

Overall, it was a great opportunity for us to give back to the local community in some way.
