Virtual Mock Interviews

What days are the mock interviews?

  • Monday 24th August
  • Wednesday 26th August

How will the mock interview work?

  • You must confirm your appointment with the AHEAD staff member and complete a questionnaire in advance of your interview. This will be sent to the employer so they can prepare for your interview. 
  • You will then receive an email from an AHEAD staff member with your allocated time and a link to the Zoom meeting.
  • All you have to do is click into the link provided to you in the email 5 minutes prior to your appointment slot. If you click into the link too early, you will be in a waiting room and only admitted to the main room at your scheduled appointment time.
  • You will be admitted into the main Zoom meeting room and welcomed by an AHEAD staff member.
  • You will then be assigned into a breakout room with the employer where they will do a mock interview with you.
  • At the end of your appointment, an AHEAD staff member will notify you that your interview is finished and you will be removed from the meeting. 

You can watch a video of how it works below.
