Yasmina’s Graduate Story
Yasmina is a MA Journalism graduate. She used the Careers & Employability Service to hone her interview skills, completing a mock interview with one of our Skills Advisers. She has since secured a role as a Researcher with the ONS (Office of National Statistics).
[The Careers Service] was crucial in my interview preparation. It allowed me to focus and plan interview preparation effectively. It allowed me to practice interview skills which was very important.
I have used the service few times for advice on CV and application and for a mock interview. To me it was important that I was able to choose same member of the team to support me.
I would advise students to enjoy your interview preparation. Find it interesting, it will make you sound/look passionate about the job you are applying for.
Think outside of the box. Don’t be scared to dream big. Any effort you will put in into career planning/getting jobs is time well spent.
