 ”am writing to say thank you to the organisers of the Mock Assessment and Personal Development Day for organising the event. Attending it was a very rewarding and interesting experience for me. I found it very useful as I learnt what to expect on a real recruitment assessment day when I attend one in the future. What had the greatest impact on my present development were the many practical tips we were given, for example, about what employers look for when they recruit people, or how to behave and what mistakes to avoid when we make a presentation. The things I learnt might come in handy in a lot of other situations, any time, that is why I think it was definitely worth attending the event”
