Come into the Career Studio and develop your skills and confidence through the engaging and safe space of Virtual Reality! With 4 exciting modules to choose from you can improve your confidence and interview technique and get targeted feedback and personalised tips to help you improve and get interview ready!

There are 4 modules to choose from:

Module 1 - Managing Interview Anxiety

Whether you are going for your first job interview or wanting to improve on your technique, this 20 minute session will help you beat the interview jitters and help you to successfully show off your true strengths and achievements. This session will advise you on how to remain cool, calm, and collected when you walk through that interview room door.

Module 2 - Landing the perfect job, on your own terms!

How do you convince the person interviewing you that you are the best candidate for the job? What makes you the best choice? And how do you communicate your qualities to your interviewers? In this 20-minute session you will learn how to craft winning answers that are relevant and memorable and get to practise your verbal and non-verbal communication skills when delivering responses in an interview.

Module 3 - Three steps to answering (almost) any question

One of the scariest things about an interview is not knowing what questions the interviewer is going to throw at you. In this 20-minute session you will practise interview questions (including curve balls) to identify what the interviewer is looking for, discover a fail-safe strategy for answering behavioural questions in a job interview and craft winning answers.

Module 4 - Interview Simulation

With over 60 top interview questions, you will be put to the test. In this interview, you can choose what type of questions to answer. You will then watch yourself back and get valuable feedback.
