2013 Practise Interviews

When: 2pm onwards, Friday,  12th July 2013
Where: Owen G Glenn Building, The University of Auckland
Who: Restricted to active IEEE members

The University of Auckland IEEE Student Branch is proud to announce our annual Practice Interviews event. This event involves mock job interviews with real representatives from the industry. Each participant will have the opportunity to be interviewed by a company of their choice. In previous years, there has been companies from Fisher & Paykel, Vector, Orion Health, and many more.

The interviews last for 30 minutes each, which involves a 20 minute job interview, and 10 minute feedback session on your interview and your CV. This is a rare opportunity to improve your employment skills.

After the event, there will be a chance to socialise and network over finger food and drinks with all of the employers on the day. This is a great way to make professional connections in a career, in engineering. This is a very rare and valuable opportunity for a student so you should not miss out: feedback from a real job interview and a networking session with industrial representatives from several top NZ & international companies!

We will be sending employers a copy of your CV before the Practice Interviews, more information will be sent out about this. This means you should get working on your CV now as we will be enforcing a strict no-CV, no interview policy. A great way to get your CV started is to attend the Job Skills Seminar, held the week before. More information about this can be found here

See you there!
