Interview and Job Search Techniques


This course will make you more effective in your job search, applications and interview.

Learn how to identify what skills you have, what skills you need and how to sell all of this to a potential employer with OCR Life and Work Skills accredited qualifications.

We cover:

  • Personal skills and abilities: how to recognise these, assess them, develop them and promote them to employers
  • Communication skills: working in groups effectively, being effective on the telephone
  • Interview skills: how to prepare for an interview, do a simulated interview and receive feedback to improve your performance.
  • CV writing: how to create and update an effective CV which sells your skills to potential employers.
  • Interview Skills: plan good answers to questions you’ll be ask, for the real thing.

All of this will increase your confidence in the skills you have and teach you how to sell these to employers.

We also run a Work Club to support you in your search for work.
