Workshop Content

This one-day workshop is designed to give practical advice and support to help you improve how you demonstrate your many skills and abilities to a potential employer, through both what you say and how you say it. It covers:

  • How to get your message across
  • How to respond to difficult questions or challenging scenarios
  • How to match your skills to the opportunity
  • How to positively use your voice and body language
  • How to confidently present yourself and your experience
