Project Details

What we need

  • Conduct 4 review sessions over 2 months (timetable is flexible). Each review session is 1.5hr long: (1) 30 min of CV review, (2) 45 min of mock interview, and (3) 15 min of interview feedback.
  • Review sessions are delivered either face to face or over ZOOM call and can be done as one-on-one, or in small groups of 3-5 people.


Our approach to help people transform in life and in career involves 4 steps• Step 0 - Accepting the Challenge • Step 1 - Discover Yourself • Step 2 - Discover Possibilities • Step 3 - Getting There. Providing CV reviews and Mock Interviews is a key Newgig free resource in Step 3. Most of our interviewees have been in their industries for quite some years. To help them step out of their comfort zone and pivot toward a new path, skills of writing a polished CV or delivering an impressive interview are critical.

What we have

To help Interviewer better understand individual goals and needs, we will provide 1) Briefings on individual background 2) CV previews ahead of workshops. 3) Other field experts or coaches to support questions and discussion.

Why this is important

Through providing constructive feedbacks on CV writing, our interviewees will be able to tailor CVs according to employer expectations. Proper writing will make them stand out, by highlighting relevant experiences and transferrable skills. During mock interviews, interviewer will encourage and empower interviewee to respond creatively and effectively. By familiarising themselves with current interview settings and questions, interviewees will become confident and comfortable in real-life situations.
