CV and Interview Skills
Shepherd & Wedderburn hosted this interactive session on CVs and Interview skills delivered by the fantastic Sally McFall, director of McFall Recruitment and executive board member of Women in Banking & Finance.
Fiona Buchanan of Shepherd & Wedderburn welcomed a full room of attendees to their offices that had stunning rooftop views of Edinburgh.
Sally’s session included practical advice and strategy for setting yourself up for success, CV editing, and techniques for interview research and preparation.
The power of the elevator pitch was evidenced when the audience delivered their own 5min presentations amongst each other to gain confidence and familiarity with this all-important personal introduction.
Sally motivated an enthusiastic audience and inspired action for personal and professional development quoting Winston Churchill who said “I like things to happen, and if they don’t happen I like to make them happen”.
Networking drinks and nibbles followed the event. Thanks to Lorna Millar and her team at Shepherd and Wedderburn for arranging.
