The interviewer and the interviewee
A few students will be selected to be interviewed by the presenters in front of the whole group. Students can either volunteer or they will be randomly selected. Remember the process we learn during the workshop.
The other students will be asked to provide feedback on the interviewee performance based on the information you learned in this soft skills training session.
