CV and Interview workshop at the Hong Kong Baptist University
As a recruitment consultancy, we review tons of CVs every day to make a first selection of candidate, we will get them prepared for interviews and guide them through to the onboarding process.
Having the opportunity to meet young graduates and sharing our experience, is the chance to give them:
- Advice that will enable them to be more visible with a recruitment consultancy or an HR manager;
- The chance to know and understand specific codes that govern the job market;
- Adapt themselves as best as possible to this new environment.
In this perspective, Maude Piegay and Laurine Vié from McLaren Consultancy have been invited by the Hong Kong Baptist University to host two workshops focused on CV and Job interview on 22nd February 2019.
The main purpose of these workshops is to support Postgraduate students in their search of first job or Management Trainee program position.
To do so, Maude and Laurine proposed 2 workshops adapted to the audiences’ need with practical information and play role to better understand the market, the challenge of job search and how to maximize their chance to get a job adapted to their expectations.
The first 1-hour workshop was held in front of a small group of students. This allowed the consultants to offer a more personalized support with an individual screening of each CV, advice adapted to each situation and a session of answers to more detailed questions.
The second 1.5-hour workshop was held in front of a group of students revolved around topics such as the preparation of the job interview, the positioning of the candidate, and the work ethic. The students were able to practice on their pitch elevator, and putting themselves in the shoes of a candidate and / or a recruiter to identify the main points of attention during the interview (verbal and non-verbal communication, different types of questions and how to answers…).
At the end of the workshop, students were able to interact with our consultants by asking them more personal questions about their own situation.
It has been the 2nd participation of McLaren Consultancy at this kind of event with the Hong Kong Baptist University. Like previous session, it has been a great moment of sharing for both students and consultants.
We take the opportunity to thank Hong Kong Baptist University and Mavis Mak for their warm welcome and great organization.
For sure, it will be a pleasure for our team to participate to the next session!
