Preparing for the future

February 11, 2019

As part of their forward planning and transition from school, a number of S4 and S5 pupils recently got the chance to sign up for a mock interview session with Keith Sheddon from Thornhill and District Rotary Club.  This was a great opportunity for the pupils to experience all the challenges a formal interview can bring with someone from outwith school. 

Amy Broatch, S5, said:  “I found my interview with Mr Sheddon to be a really useful experience and it has helped me to understand what a real-life interview will be like.”  Robin Bradford, S5, added:  “I am hoping to study engineering at College and hope to get a job in that field.  My mock interview with Mr Sheddon highlighted how important it is to create a good first impression and show that you are keen to work hard.

Thornhill Rotarian Keith Sheddon commented:  “It is always a pleasure to meet youngsters from Wallace Hall Academy and hopefully assist them with their chosen career paths.  These mock interviews are a good way to prepare the youngsters by removing the angst their first interviews may bring.”
