Be Prepared To Spend £100 For Every Job Interview
Calm nerves and a glowing CV are just the start for hopefuls struggling to get on the career ladder – now they need £103.15 to cover the average cost of a job interview, a new study conducted by Trainline shows.
Cash-strapped youngsters typically spend £31.28 on new clothes to help them impress, plus £71.87 on other necessary expenses, such as travel and sustenance, found Trainline.
The rail and coach app launched The Interview Store, which provided a free outfit, discounted train travel and a session with career coach, Alice Stapleton.
Alice spoke to Metro (& The Mirror) about the pop-up store, and how it would help jobseekers tackle ‘nerve-wracking’ interviews.
