Interviews are often part of a selection process and may present the final hurdle between you and your dream job. It can be a very stressful experience if you don't know what to expect and the best way to respond to interview questions. This session will help you to prepare for interviews and will give you techniques to sell yourself effectively.
Back after the huge success of last summer’s webinar series, International Futures invites EU and overseas students to join Careers Consultant Andy Walsh on this free webinar. Andy will be talking about what you need to know when writing CVs and job applications for the UK, as well as taking your questions online. Register for this free webinar at https://www3.go
