Event Details

Not many of us enjoy interviews and we could all perform better on the day. Arm yourself with the skills to succeed at interview with this preparatory bootcamp session.  Role plays are encouraged but in a very supportive environment.  This is an ideal follow-up to our personal branding and CV writing workshops.  

It is particularly helpful if you haven’t been on interview for several years or are not used to formal interview processes.


We will:
•Explain the difference between competency and biographical interview techniques.
•Build case studies using the STAR format to demonstrate evidence of previous achievements.
•Prepare a great answer to the opening, ‘icebreaker’ question. 
•Practise answers to behavioural based questions on areas such as management, leadership, conflict, organisation skills, resilience, project management, team work and planning.
•Practise answers to ‘wildcard’ questions. 
•Prepare questions to ask the interviewer.
•Prepare answers to the questions that you don’t want to be asked.
•Discuss tricky subjects like money and your weaknesses.
•Build your confidence so interviews become more of a positive experience!

So what is this Academy thing?

We're very excited to be launching The Mumsnet Academy - a brand new enterprise which aims to curate a portfolio of fantastic courses to fit around family commitments and busy working lives. 

A while back we asked you what courses you would like and the programme of masterclasses, workshops, and events we've come up with is a reflection of your  responses.

To help us deliver the programme we have enlisted some fabulous experts in a range of fields as well as teaming up with some great partners who have a reputation for delivering high-quality, life-changing courses.

This collaborative approach allows us to offer a programme across a range of different subjects including entrepreneurship, business, technology, social media, blogging, history of art, creative writing, publishing, gardening, philosophy, finance, fashion as well as courses concerned with self-improvement and the concept of learning to live wisely and well. Some of these courses will be skill-based, while others will explore concepts, theory and ideas.

If we've missed something you think is a must, fear not, we will be adding classes to our portfolio all the time so please drop us a line or complete the suggestion box on our website.

One of the things that we felt was important was to ensure our Academy courses are available across the UK and we are pleased to announce that we will be running events in Birmingham, Edinburgh, London and Manchester from day one. We are also keen to develop some online courses and hope to announce the first of these later this year.
While our courses are scheduled at times which are more convenient for those with young children, they are absolutely open to everyone. Ultimately, the overall aim of the Mumsnet Academy is to bring people together in a thought-provoking and fulfilling environment where there is a universal willingness to explore ideas, develop skills, and learn from experts as well from each other.
