Mock Interviews 2015

As summer approaches, we are preparing the 11th graders for internships by practicing a vital skill: job interviewing. Each candidate will soon be interviewed by their internship host before they are “hired” for the six-week work exploration experience, so this practice gives them self confidence and a preview of what may be asked at that stressful test of their job readiness.

This year the “Mocks” were coordinated by Roseanna Neustaedter and George Roberts of our AOAT Advisory Board. These two dedicated professionals greeted and prepped the interviewers – a total of 11 individuals who committed to being at school for two hours on one of the three days of this annual event. Each student had a 10-minute one-on-one interview, then the whole group gathered at the end for a “debrief” to hear further suggestions and critiques from the interviewers.

Our thanks go out for this support and participation of the community in helping AOAT students learn about job interviews and making their best first impression!
