Total concentration on the group-work task.

Pupils submitted an e-application for a job in their chosen job sector prior to the event.

On the day of the event they completed an aptitude test, a group assessment task and finally an individual interview by a business advisor. 

Eye4Education will return to give each student feedback on their performance at each stage of the process.

All ready for the big interview.

In the afternoon pupils availed of the expertise of 8 interviewers representing eight local employers, business organisations and public sector recruiters.

This was a wonderful opportunity for all the pupils, helping them prepare for their future interview processes for employment or further and higher education. 

Mr Wilson, Head of Careers Education at Cookstown High School, said: “This was a wonderful opportunity for all our pupils, helping them prepare for their future interview processes for employment or further and higher education.”
