Alumni conduct Inspiring Success interviews at Loughborough University London

The Inspiring Success programme is now in its sixth year and is designed to provide employability support and funding for unemployed or underemployed graduates from the East London Growth Boroughs of Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest.

The programme this year has changed slightly due to the pandemic and has involved a series of online events.

A speed interviewing event was held on 1 July and was supported by alumni Kerrine Bryan (Business Administration 2010) and Richard Ingram (Economics 1993).

Both alumni had the role of interviewer, they had five minutes to ask a series of questions and then give feedback to the participant on the interview. The event aimed to offer participants of the Inspiring Success programme an understanding on how to market themselves to potential employers.

Shah Rahman, an Inspiring Success participant said:

“The sessions have all been really insightful. The interviews were tough but great. The programme has really boosted my self-confidence and given me the energy to want more. I am excited about the potential to study at Loughborough University London – thank you to all who put the programme together.” 

Thank you to Kerrine and Richard for supporting this event.
