Students prepared very well for their interviews. They spoke confidently about their qualities and skills they have acquired and most importantly why they should be chosen for such a position.

Key personnel in Microsoft such as Mechanical Engineers and Electricians interviewed our students. Students were given excellent verbal and written feedback from their interviewers and were treated to lunch afterwards.
