Job Interview Video Role play

School Leavers

"Tell me...." is a 128 question job interview role play, designed to be run from a laptop, or PC, ideally, with a data projector.

It is aimed to increase the learning speed of school leavers wanting to improve their interview skills and to therefore increase their chances of employment.interview questions

It allows you to instantly select from a range of questions, having asked a group member to respond immediately the question ends.

Coaching can then be given and the question repeated to build up their skill level. Because there is a third party present (the video interviewer), there are no issues with you having to role play the questions, or you, having to set up role plays with other group members. This therefore brings a level of realism into this aspect of job seeking.

It also aims to eliminate all the pitfalls of live role plays, which need very experienced trainers and role players to work effectively. Live role plays are also time consuming to set up.

It should be stressed that while a good CV will get an interview, it will not normally get anyone a job. Hence the importance of sound preparation for this vital interview in a realistic way.

Having an interviewer face them on a screen brings a new dimension to your approach and our experience in using on-screen role plays is that it can actually be quite stressful for people. Just like the real thing!

So here is your chance to go the extra mile. 

We produced our first dual screen video role play in 1995 and therefore have unique experience in developing this approach to training.

An adult version is also available. Click here for details of this.

How Does It Work?

The full script runs on the laptop screen for quick question selection and the video appears on the projector screen.

The script and the script number list work together to make it easier for you to choose questions quickly.

A small preview screen (shown below right) is available to view the questions on a single screen before using the programme with a group.

In addition, for older laptops, it is possible to use a "cleaned up" single screen video which uses a simple number based selection bar. This can also be used for desktop coaching.

This is how the programme would appear using a data projector.

Question control

Left - Data projector screen which can also show a participant's name, or group names can be randomly selected from a list.

Right - Control screen giving access to full script, as well as a simple numerical listing. The dual screen function can be turned on or off and a preview screen (shown above) can also be used for familiarisation with the content.
