Mock Interviews

Participating in a mock interview with an industry professional is an invaluable experience for a young person who will soon be taking their first steps into the world of work.

Mock interviews can also help volunteers improve their own interviewing techniques and gain experience. We'll equip you with the questions and evaluation sheets - all we ask is an hour or two of your time. We're currently looking for support with mock interviews as follows:

  • Lochside Academy, Wednesday 11 September 1025-1225hrs
  • Lochside Academy, Wednesday 18 September 1025-1225hrs
  • St Machar Academy, Tuesday 24 September 0830-1315hrs
  • Lochside Academy, Wednesday 25 September 1025-1225hrs
  • St Machar Academy, Tuesday 1 October 0850-1315hrs
  • St Machar Academy, Friday 6 December 0850-1450hrs.

If you'd like to put your name forward to help with mock interviews, please drop us a note.
