The trainer(s) lead a discussion about job interviews:
- What to expect?
- When to disclose?
- Who books the interpreter?
- Working with the interpreter
- What happens when things go wrong?
The discussion should include clothing and seating positions (with interpreter), how/when to shake hands, eye gaze, appropriate responses etc.
Mock interviews/role play:
Dependent upon numbers – group may split into 2: one ‘employer’, one interviewee, one interpreter.
Interviewees – should prepare with the interpreter before the interview.
The participants watch all the interviews – using this as a learning experience, noticing good practice etc.
Peer and employer feedback.
