About this event


  • Professional coaching by an experienced Interview Skills and Behavioural Consultant specialist
  • Small group ( 5 pax per group maximum), highly hands-on session
  • Learn by practical application and practice
  • Experience a mock DSA interview
  • Receive a personalised report post-workshop


​As Interview Skills specialists, we are best positioned to give your child a helping hand to master the art of tackling interviews, and to handle such high stress moments confidently. The DSA-Sec program includes an interview for shortlisted applicants and for most children, this will be the first time they are experiencing an interview. An interview is a highly niche situation, one that is never replicated in our everyday life. Set them up for success by giving them the right preparation and to build their confidence in tackling not just the DSA interview, but for any interview they will face in the future. 

This workshop is uniquely developed to be a highly practical and hands on workshop that will allow the trainer to coach each participant in a very comprehensive manner. It is designed to provide each student the opportunity to not only learn interview skills, but to actually put the skills to use and to have an experiential mock interview which will be recorded for the participant's own review and practice post the workshop. 

This workshop will be run by Discovering Potential's founder, Hwang Siew Ling, who has extensive experience training students in the areas of Interview and Communication Skills. Siew Ling is an Interview and Career Coach, and she is a Certified Advanced Behavioural & Career Consultant, as well as a Certified Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Siew Ling's full CV can be found here
