Siemens Diagnostics treated 5th Year LCVP students to several talks as part of an enterprise education initiative. We were also given advice on creating a CV and interview preparation. On Wednesday, the 5th of December, the mock interviews took place in the Siemens Diagnostic plant. The interviews were organised to give us an insight into the process of applying and interviewing for a job. In order to participate in the interview, we had to have sent a cover letter and CV to Siemens in advance and arrive in full interview attire. We were all given feedback on how our interview went.
We returned to Siemens in February for Engineers Week. We were given a tour of the facility and observed the assembly and testing of the medical equipment. After the tour we were shown a short film before being challenged to create a miniature windmill.
Over the past few months, we have gained an insight to many aspects of the world of work and would like to thank our teachers Ms.Gibson, Ms O’Dowd and Ms. Hynan as well as Fedelma, our Siemens liaison business officer.
