The implantation of the European Higher Education has highlighted the student need to take an active role in the learning process and develop skills that allow them to gain access to the labor market. Starting from the theory of Experiential Learning, which focuses on the experimentation of the individual to develop learning, we have designed an active methodology to implement the various stages of a selection process from two different perspectives (the interviewer and the candidate). After providing students with the knowledge and information needed, interactive educational techniques were developed through a role-play in which students staged phases of the selection process. Students had the opportunity to put theory into practice, reflect on the results of the experience and realise if they really understood this. The activity encouraged the participation and involvement of students, facilitated the comprehension and understanding of the subject and allowed them to acquire and develop new skills.
