Post of The Month (July)

Aidan is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey Lucie,

You say you're still on medication and have had lots of therapy? Maybe it's a matter of revisiting old coping techniques and anything else like that, that therapy taught you?

And Drea is absolutely right! Even someone with everything material that they could ever want isn't insusceptible to mental illness. Any sex, race, age, class; it doesn't discriminate...

  • Finally got an interview, any advice please?

    Hi, So I finally got an interview as a kitchen assistant in a pub, it's this Friday, anyone got any ideas on what to say or what would impress them? Would really, really appreciate it

    Hey Distraction!

    I've never had a job interview myself, so I can't really give any advice from my experience :\

    Maybe someone else more sociable than me can 😂

    Have you checked the page the mix has on this?
    http://www.themix.org.uk/work-and-st...tips-1218.html

    There'll be plenty of other online stuff too

    Good luck with the interview! Let us know how it goes
    SUCCESS is not final, FAILURE is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts

      Hey Distraction, congratulations on getting an interview. Wishing you the best of luck for it, let us know how it goes
      That article Aidan linked you to has some great advice and tips about job interviews that might be helpful to read through. This bit of advice is really good:

      Think of examples

      Saying, ‘I’m a really creative person’ doesn’t make it true. But saying, ‘I’m really creative. I have a photography blog I update three times a week’ will make an interviewer trust you. If you’re really a ‘team player’ you’ll need to demonstrate it. What kind of team? And what did you actually do that made you such a great teammate?
      Before the interview, make a list of the questions you might be asked and work out how you’d respond with examples.
      What helps for some people is to prepare some example questions and answers and practice reading through them. There's some great example questions on Prospects website here. It can also be good to think of a few questions to ask them at the end to show you're interested about the role

      Best of luck!
