Because of the ease at which interviews can be created and sent to an entire year in a couple of minutes Sonru allows the teacher/career guidance counsellor to conveniently interview more students more often. Thus the student can be thoroughly prepared for job or work experience interviews. Below are some of the advantages and benefits of using Sonru in the students’ interview preparation:
Interviews completed at any time The student can complete the interview at any time, as part of homework or in the classroom environment.
Teacher review anytime As video files are stored in the teachers Sonru account the teacher can review at any time which is convenient to him/her.
Practice makes perfect The more mock interviews a student completes the better equipped he/she will become.
Bank of interviews
More time for review with student Teacher/guidance counsellor time that is allocated to the student can be spent discussing and reviewing the interview as opposed to completing the interview.
Different types of interviews As a greater number of interviews can be completed using Sonru, the teacher/guidance counsellor can examine the student in different types of interviews competency, behavioural, informative etc.
Add reviewers other teachers can be added as viewers to share the workload and to share feedback on the student, feedback comments can also be shared on the viewers’ comments board. Review of video files can happen as often as required.
Other viewers Entrepreneurs, business people or members of the community can be added as viewers if the teacher feels it could be beneficial or interesting to get their feedback on interviews.
