Mock Interviews

Interviews are an integral part of the hiring process for any type of organization. Potential employers use interviews as a means to learn who you are as a prospective employee.

Mock interviews are one of the best ways to prepare for an actual employee interview, allowing you to gain the opportunity, experience and confidence to answer questions similar to ones that may be asked during your real interview.

Your Employment Counselor will take on the role of the interview and try to make the interview as realistic as possible by asking questions that are commonly asked for the type of job you are seeking. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to ask questions in return that you may want to ask during an actual interview.

Mock interviews generally take up to twenty minutes. Once completed, your employment counselor will discuss and critique your performance, giving you tips on what can be improved upon if necessary. While the length of mock interviews varies by student, please allow one hour for the appointment.

Employment Counseling

Choosing a career can often be challenging and difficult. How do you know what type of career is right for you? Are you sure the profession you are interested in best suits your personality, interests and goals?

The career and employment counseling professionals here at SETS are skilled in assessing your employment and training needs. We offer career guidance and assistance to SETS clients, providing one-on-one counseling and group counseling sessions to identify career interests, assist those who are unemployed and seeking employment and also to help those who need advice with decision making and career planning.

Our employment counseling services available to clients include but are not limited to:

  • Exploring career training and employment options
  • Developing a career plan
  • Overcoming barriers and challenges to find work
  • Labour market information
  • Connecting you with potential employers

Job Search & Resume Writing Help

SETS Job Search & Resume Writing services provide students with both traditional and modern job search techniques and resume writing skills to successfully gain employment in today’s competitive marketplace. This training course combines hands-on practical applications alongside theoretical information.

Clients are required to use their own experiences to identify work preferences. You will be asked to research, organize and gather information for both skills training courses. Participants will then draft an effective resume and cover letter following the job search process. As well, participants will learn to set goals, develop job search strategies, plan and organize tools, maintain records, communicate, make decisions and negotiate.
