Welcome to Heads Up, your one-stop source for news about your son’s upcoming activities and events.

Practice interviews

Last year, Lindsay Tarvit (Manager, Alumni Relations and Common Ties) and Sabba Khokhar (Coordinator, Human Resources) delivered interview-training workshops as part of the Career Studies program.

If you would like to ask for an individual practice interview with an Old Boy or UCC parent in order to get detailed feedback on your skills in preparation for admission, scholarship, or employment interviews, you should sign up with Ms Tarvit (ltarvit@ucc.on.ca) or send an email to your university counsellor stating your interest. Students have indicated in previous years that a practice interview has really boosted their confidence.

Parents who would like to volunteer to ensure that all students have the opportunity to take part in this valuable experience should contact Lindsay Tarvit at ltarvit@ucc.on.ca or 416-488-1125 ext. 3357. No professional expertise is required; instructions will be provided.

Without assistance, we shall not be able to offer interviews to all the boys who are eager to avail themselves of this valuable opportunity. Volunteers will be provided with a sample of appropriate questions and an easy-to-complete evaluation form. The time commitment would be no more than 1-2 hours in total.
