World of Work in Northern Ireland

Getting Work

Selling Yourself

Filling out job applications and attending interviews are all part of the process of selling yourself and your skills when going for a job.

The BBC NI TV series Mission Employable followed a group of young people who’d been unemployed for a long time as they attempted to get back into employment.

Presented by Stephen Nolan and featuring life coach Sean Connolly and business advisor Rosemary Morrison, it followed them as they began to challenge the negative thinking which had built up as a barrier to them getting the job they wanted.

In these clips two of them go for a mock interview while Nolan and his two experts look on.
