Students being challenged with mock interviews at our training session
Jul 7, 2013
It has been a long and challenging day for the 23 students taught by Matthew Mingey, Head of Debate programs and instructor at ARCH Education. Students were being exposed to quirky interview questions to develop their critical thinking skills and how to tackle such problems. They also had an opportunity to practice group interview and presentation using the critical thinking skills they have just learnt and most importantly, they all received feedbacks for improvement. We hope our advices are helpful for their coming university and careers interviews!
