This half-day programme gives participants the skills they need to prepare a well-structured, concise and effective CV and the confidence to put themselves forward for interview (particularly interviews for internal roles).
In many instances people do not apply for internal vacancies because they lack confidence and/or the skills to put together or refresh their CV. They feel nervous and unduly conscious of the need to present themselves positively in an interview. Evidence suggests that this is particularly a concern for people when they are applying for vacancies within the organisation. They are aware of the organisation’s existing perception of them and the need to ‘perform’ at interview, particularly if they know the hiring manager. They see the risks of ‘failure’ in an internal interview process as being much greater than when applying for jobs externally. They fear making their position worse, not better.
For the organisation, however, there are real benefits to recruiting from within and it’s in their interests to encourage it. Internal recruitment ensures that people have the chance to fulfil their potential – and saves the organisation the much higher cost of external recruitment. Making the best use of your people is a commercial and moral imperative – and helping support them through the internal recruitment process therefore makes perfect sense and gives a great return on investment.
