Year 11 Microsoft Interview Day

Once again Waingels Year 11 students had a fantastic day gaining valuable interview experience with employees of Microsoft. The students had to apply for a job and produce a CV for the occasion. 

“Sessions during tutor time really helped us create the CV”- Year 11 Student

The students all looked incredibly smart, one of the Microsoft interviewees commented on how impressed she was in the effort some students had put into this, and that some of them were more professional looking than those of the chief executives she regularly interviews!

There were a lot of nerves before the interviews but this was followed up with beaming students as they left their interviews. The whole day had a buzz about it with lots of students feeling very proud of themselves. Students said it helped them in different ways by thinking about real interviews and applications. 

“It helped me be prepared for what interviews may be like in the real world”- Year 11 Student

This is only possible because the staff at Microsoft are so generous with their time and enthusiastic about supporting young people in making the transition from school to the workplace. We  thank them very much for taking time out of their busy schedules to support us.
