💼Navigating Year Three of the AbbVie Program - Mastering CVs, Interview Skills, and Beyond!
Exciting developments in year three of the AbbVie program—the pivotal year for our students! We kicked off with a deep dive into CVs and interview skills, guided by an insightful presentation from our careers advisor Mrs. Green. Students eagerly explored opportunities in Post 16 further education, T Levels, and apprenticeships, gaining valuable insights into the grades required and future-proof subject choices.
The timing was spot on as we geared up for the Mock Interview event the following week. Students had the chance to connect with employers, receiving feedback on their CVs and tackling typical competency-based interview questions. Using the STAR method (Situation, Task, Action, Result), AbbVie colleagues collaborated with teams to highlight their skills and attributes, emphasising teamwork, problem-solving, communication, and resilience.
Our journey doesn't stop there! The upcoming session will focus on mock exam reports, where AbbVie colleagues will join forces with students to pinpoint learning gaps and develop effective coping mechanisms in preparation for the main exams in June.
