Employer Speed Dating Event

Employer Speed dating EventOn Wednesday 18th November 2015 Talent Match Northamptonshire ran its first Employer ‘Speed Dating’ event at St Marys Church in Wellingborough.

Local employers such as The Victoria Centre, Delos, Mallows, Serve and Groundwork gave up their time to ‘speed interview’ young people on the programme.

Each interview lasted approximately five minutes. At the end of each interview the interviewee moved on to the next employer and the process began again.

All the young people arrived smartly dressed, equipped with their CVs and research material.

Here’s what some of participants had to say about the event:

“it was a fantastic day and I even got voluntary work out of it.”

“That was a really good day.”

“I really enjoyed meeting the young people and they did a fantastic job.”

The event was a huge success, leading to voluntary and paid work positions being offered to some of the participants. It was the first time Talent Match Northamptonshire has hosted this type of event and we plan to run another one in the new year.
