The NI Screen UU Placement scheme interview was my first job application and interview that I went through for placement year. It was probably one of the most nerve wracking experiences for placement year. After my mishaps in the mock interview I was determined to be more prepared. I was more thorough with my question and answer preparations and practiced reciting more out loud. My nerves get the better of me in these situations. Recording myself was the most helpful way for preparing that I found.
I did quite poorly on the question “What do you know about the animation industry here in Northern Ireland?” so I should look more into this for future interviews.
