Family law solicitor Jennifer Curtis, at family law firm James Maguire & Co, provides an insight into her morning at Wilmslow High School:
On Tuesday 12 November 2013, I took part in the mock interviews organised by Wilmslow High School for their Year 11 students.
The pupils aged between 15 and 16 each had a 20 minute competency based interview with me, which focussed on their key skills, strengths and weaknesses. The students were encouraged to prepare CVs and covering letters in preparation for the interview which provided a structure for the interview.
The morning was a great opportunity to meet with local students and to hear their aspirations for their future careers and to provide guidance on how to achieve their goals. As a specialist family solicitor, it was particularly interesting to meet with pupils who are considering a career as a social worker and those who are looking forward to studying A-level law. I also enjoyed one pupil’s response to a theoretical situation: when asked how he would deal with poor performance within a sports team, he indicated that a lot could be learned from reflecting on the steps taken by the Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini in relation to goalkeeper Joe Hart!
