Students in the BM Track got a chance recently to polish their interview techniques as part of on-going training offered by the EDHEC Career Centre. More than 300 students participated in two workshops that included advice from international consulting executives.
During the workshops, students learned how to manage the recruitment process and were trained in the STAR technique: Situation, Task, Action, Results. This technique teaches students how to respond in a positive manner to interview questions designed to reveal weaknesses and faults.
The students also learned how to pitch their skills and talents in order to succeed as first-time job seekers. During this exercise, they worked with consulting executives with expertise in specific job markets who helped them to tailor their pitch depending on the needs of the targeted market.
