“When I was Senior Talent Partner at Treasury WA, we reviewed hundreds of applications for internships, vacation and graduate programs and students that had an experience with the NCP program all got shortlisted to either the video interview stage or the face-to-face interview stage.
It gave them an enormous competitive advantage as they were able to demonstrate their soft skills and provide a variety of examples to interview questions rather than the standard ‘group assignment’ answer. It gives the candidate depth in their application and conversation and presents a positive candidate that has a greater sense of self and world awareness and maturity in their career endeavors.“
