Real Industry Job Interviews (RIJI) Program
About Real Industry Job Interviews Program
The RIJI program is a career development program for students in Year 9 that works toward specific work-readiness skills including job search, resume and cover letter writing as well as practising an interview.
RIJI provides participating schools in the Banyule and Nillumbik regions with a curriculum-based schedule that can be delivered in class over eight weeks to support students to prepare for the mock interview day and help them with career development skills along the way.
Local industry and community volunteers provide their time as interviewers for the program. Most of the Volunteers commit a full day of support to the students in a life-like interview scenario including verbal and written feedback. Students receive this feedback to reflect and learn from their interview experience.
Held on Tuesday 13th and 27th October 2020, both events were conducted online .

- 411 students from 4 schools did the pre interview preparation of the RIJI program
