A typical Transition workshop is split into 3 activities:

1. A CV review wherein the quality of one's resume is assessed by industry professionals and direct feedback is provided to the individual;

2. A Mock interview which provides the candidates an opportunity for a 'dry run' in answering competency- based interview questions posed to them by a panel of assessors;

3. An assessment in which the candidates work in a team to solve a problem.

The event is designed help prospective candidates identify why he/she had probably not made an interview shortlist , or fell short of expectations in their interview or assessment centre..

AFBE-UK Scotland has successfully run several Transition events in Aberdeen and which has yielded positive results for many of the attendees in terms of interview invitations and securing jobs .

Transition which began in Aberdeen in 2012 has become very popular among students. The programme has now been run in more than 7 universities around the UK in London, Leicester and in Edinburgh.

The programme gives prospective interview candidates a real confidence boost and a survey run in 2016 showed that over 70% of Transition participants were able to secure a job in a relevant role within 12 months.
