Year 9 Resumes/Interview Hints

YEAR 9:The Careers Adviser will be withdrawing small groups of approximately 4 students each period from Year 9 timetabled Religion/non religion classes. The purpose of this is to discuss Resume preparation, Cover Letters and Interview hints etc. I will send a note to Mr Fleming when he can send students to the Careers/Welfare Office, over the coming months until I have seen all students at least once.
