Thats brilliant news! You give me hope.

I just had my interview and the questions were none I prepped for. Really had to call on my experience and think through the question in real time. They didn't seem that impressed with me and once she had to ask me the question again as I started to drift off topic.

Honestly, I was exactly the same! Luckily, I think that's the point and I think they're trying to stretch you and really make you draw on your current experience and knowledge. I suppose in some ways you can't really prep for it and it is very much about thinking on your feet! It sounds like just my experience so I hope you get good news soon! :) x

I hope so. They really did stretch me to match my skills and experience to the role. I thought I had those conversations in my head enough during the prep I was doing but I still felt challenged. As you say, thats the point. I hope it brings me good news next week!

Congratulations on Wandsworth again and it I don't make it this time, I'll be back applying for the next cohort x

Unfortunately my feelings about how badly the interview went turned out to be realistic. I didn't get the post.

The interview was nothing like I imagined it to be and they asked me questions that completely threw me. I hoped that talking about my experience would be what they were looking for but I should've shown them that I knew about IAPT and I don't think I did enough in my interview. It was really hard for me to shine with the questions they were asking me. Next time I will make sure I'm better genned up on IAPT and make sure that comes across in my answers. Because there will be a next time because I will try again!
