Interview with Minister for Business, Fair Work and Skills, Jamie Hepburn MSP

To kick start our new W.O.R.K campaign, Young Scot set up a ‘mock interview’ for the Minister, interviewing him for his current role as Minister for Business, Fair Work and Skills.

The three volunteers John, Sophie and Caitlin put the Minister through his paces asking him a series of some of the most popular and trickier interview questions they had come across. They all agreed that Mr Hepburn answered the questions with precision and confidence; and that they would “definitely” give him the job.

We were delighted that Mr Hepburn participated in the mock interview, giving us a great example of how to act and compose yourself in an interview scenario – although hopefully none of our volunteers will ever need to be filmed in front of a room of people for a job interview!

If you want to ace your next interview with the same confidence and expertly worded responses like our Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Economy and Fair Work, read about how to answer some of those tough interview questions.
