CHHS Year 11 Mock Interview KPMGClifton Hunter High School (CHHS) year 11 students arrived at school Wednesday, February 4th, 2015 out of uniform and dressed for success, ready to participate in a mock interview event that will teach them how to prepare and present themselves for employment interviews.

In preparation for the mock interviews, as well as real life and future employment prospects, students have been learning about the process of applying and preparing for employment. Students have learned how to write a professional cover letter and resume, and learned about professional language and personal presentation. The objective of this learning experience is to provide life-skills lessons for students to experience and understand the process of applying and interviewing for a job so they know what to expect when it happens in real life.

CHHS Year 11 Mock Interview with The Water AuthorityWith over 20 businesses and 130 students participating, students wrote a cover letter and resume for the mock-interview in application for one of the many mock jobs on offer from business participants, including Cayman National, Deloitte, KPMG, the Water Authority, RCIPS and Red Sail Sports.

Miss Paula Wythe, business subject leader and event organiser believes in producing students who are ready to take an active role in the community, and this event will help with those preparations. “This event is invaluable in providing the students with real-life simulation by partnering with employers in the community to assist with the lesson. I would like to thank all of the companies that took part and supported our students by providing them with this wonderful experience,” said Miss Wythe.
