Ryan Comboy and Jake Cunliffe-Neal students from the Business School and Hayley McKenzie and Carole Wilson from the Faculty of Health became models for the afternoon demonstrating how to prepare by wearing the correct business attire and accessories to deliver confidence in the Interview and Assessment Centre Situation.  Two Style Consultants from the Liverpool store of JLP took time to show how choosing the right colours and styles can make all the difference in performance in an Interview.
