InterviewsConnect, an arm of Octopus8, provides youths with training, technological guidance and mentorship to prepare them for career-shaping interviews. Our mission was to help them design an engaging programme for 800 youths, lead the production of the online event, and execute a social media strategy that would give the workshop the boost it needed.
Our team’s goal was to keep the workshop interactive, engaging and optimised for learning so that registrants could get the most value possible. Instead of using the age-old approach of having a presenter with slides, we opted for a 45 minute pre-recorded video featuring one of our team members, Lily, who posed as a job seeker. The audience followed her journey as she spoke to 5 industry guests about different pre-career finding stages, learned new concepts, and took part in activities that led to new insights. Students then got to try the activities for themselves during the hands-on segment of the workshop, which were led by trained facilitators in breakout rooms.
795 youths participated in the workshops (across 2 Saturdays) with >80% citing positive responses to their experience
