Achieving success in housing job interviews
The School of Social Professions is putting an increasing emphasis on getting students into rewarding careers. As part of BSc Community Development and Leadership, students undertake a mock assessment centre process, with skills development in jobs applications, interview skills and many other ways in which employers test prospective employees.
In addition, a suite of job interview skills videos are being developed. In summer 2014, the University developed a good practice video for applicants seeking a job in housing. It is hoped that the interview videos will help job applicants fully address the questions asked in public and voluntary sector job interviews.
