National Skills Week (August 29 – September 4) is over for another year but ARC will continue holding free Interview Skills Boot camps for local Western Sydney schools. Throughout August and the first week of September, ARC has presented to more than 1000 bright and ambitious Year 10, 11 & 12 students from 10 local schools.
Job interviews are a crucial part of life, no matter your chosen career path and the free boot camp incorporates why interviews are important, basic interview tips, what to do before, during and after a job interview, the impact that social media pages could have on a young person’s future and going through mock interviews.
“Thanking you, Kate, Justine and Jennifer! ARC has been extremely helpful and professional,” Joyce Choucair – Careers Adviser Bass Hill High School.
ARC makes career development easy, and we are proud to support our local community with this initiative.
“The boot camp provided a fantastic opportunity for the people undertaking the Logistics course with Wise Employment. The people doing the logistics course are long term unemployed and all have disabilities. The people participated in the boot camp to gain better understanding of how to prepare and participate in job interviews. The boot camp provides more confidence through hands on experience.” – Steve Neirinckx, Trainer.
Ida Consalvo from Pendle Hill High was very happy with the boot camp, stating, “Thank you for coming to our school and running the boot camp on Interview skills. The feedback from the group was very positive; students felt they had gained good tips and some practical skills to handle the job interview process a little more confidently. They particularly appreciated the notes you supplied on the day. Thank you once again for supporting our students.”
While 2016 is the first year of ARC’s boot camp, the feedback has been phenomenal and we will be running the Interview Skills Boot camp for various schools throughout the rest of the year.
