Career Ready and Moody’s Mock Interviews and CV Writing workshop

Second year Career Ready students from Bromley College of Further Education attended a CV writing and mock interview session last week, hosted by Moody’s. 

Ian Glover, Managing Director of Business Services, welcomed the students and introduced the session. During the event students were given the opportunity to learn how they could improve their CV as well as take part in a mock interview.  

Volunteers, Christine Bane and Vivek Anand-Dattani, spoke of how important a CV is to anyone applying for a job, saying “Your CV is the first time you get to make an impression; it is your door opener. If you can demonstrate your character on paper you’re half way there.”

All the Moody’s volunteers emphasised how impressed they were with how professional the students were on the day, and their businesses-life approach. Speaking after the event, George Verg, who volunteered his time for the workshop said: “All the students I have met today seem to have very good head on young shoulders, their communication skills are outstanding and with a bit of polishing off I believe they can be the finished article.”

Charlotte Higham, a student on Career Ready programme, said: “Today has really shown me just where my strengths and weaknesses lay; it has been very beneficial to me and has enabled me to prepare myself better for interviews in the future.”

Moody’s have followed up with written feedback for each student so that they can continue to improve their CVs and interview skills.
