1-2-1 Interview Preparation

Julie,  Just to let you know,  the interview went well and I am a lot happier with my performance compared to previous interviews I have attended. The structure was very similar to what you had predicted and I want to thank you for all your help at such short notice. I will know within 2 weeks the outcome,  but even if I don't get the job I feel that your guidance will help me for future interviews.

Hi Julie

Thank you for your presentation with the Year 14 Students in December.  As more and more of them inform me of their University Interviews, we are now able to reflect on your presentation and use your portfolio of notes for further inspiration.
