Students in Career and Life Management had their annual mock interviews on Wednesday, November 10.
The event was held in the commons and was organized by teacher Ryan Psota.
“The purpose of the mock interview fair is to allow the students to get accustomed to completing a job interview, from what to wear, what to bring, and how a typical job interview process goes,” Psota said. “We also have our interviewers give the students feedback on how they did, both positively and negatively, as well as tips on what to improve on.”
There were 25 interviewers in total, and students would meet up with three for three separate interviews. Each interview was for a different job.
The first was a job at a restaurant, the second a job at a grocery store, and the third, a job at a clothing store.
The students would then hand in their resumes for the job they were applying for and answer questions the interviewer asked. They would then be graded on their performance in the interview.
“I was nervous at first, but after the first interview it became more fun, and I got more confident talking about it,” freshman Kaiser Sinica said.
The interviewers themselves were a major source of help during the interviews.
“They [the interviewers] were super sweet and welcoming,” freshman Serenity Winfrey said. “They give you a lot of advice and tips on how to do it [the interview], and I really enjoyed it because I got experience from it.”
