Alritey people, I've been invited to attend the Thomas Cook assessment day, and I've been told that I'll need to present a presentation on my favourite holiday destination to the group, this is making me nervous becaise I dont really know what to expect.

Can anyone thats been to one before, let me know what to expect and tell me what else will happen in addition to the presentation :)

Cheers ppl Clap

Jamie x

Hi,
I was at the assessment last yr and had a great time.  as long as you research your destination you should be fine.  we got split into smaller teams to do the presentation.  taking props are always good.  We had a short test which was fairly easy.  basic maths,english and custoimer service questions.  We also had a team building ecercise where we all had cards with 2 bits of info with that we had to decide whowas going to a concert only by comunicating with each other verbally - was like Anna will go if ben gos, carla has a car, but b cant travel by car - that kind of thing.  Where i fell down was the role play.  i couldnt stop laughing.  not what to do.  Thats where i need help this time.  nit very good at role play cos i know the situation is not real.  Hope this helps
