What an amazing and privileged experience attending Bath University on 16th October joining ASPIeRATIONS conducting interview training with students on the Autistic spectrum.
We were joined by a variety of employers who were looking to gain a better understanding and knowledge and I can speak on behalf of Siemens that is was a truly inspiring day. There were so many takeaways, use clear wording in the interview questions, competency questions are much better than 'theoretical questions' and allowing time to acclimatize with the situation, room/environment and set up were all valuable inputs.
The sessions with the students were fantastic and for me, being yourself during an interview (which has always been my approach) really does allow the conversation to flow.
I’m still very much on a learning curve working with neurodiverse people, however I certainly feel more informed having attended the day – To all the students at the University of Bath, I wish you all the best in your studies! #siemens
