CHHS Mock Interview Day - Ms. Paula WytheStudents Prepare for Employment with a Mock Interview Event

Clifton Hunter High School () year 11 students arrived at school Friday, January 17, 2014 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 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 CHHS Mock Interview Day Ms. McDougalllearning 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.

Fifteen businesses participated as interviewers and 110 students were interviewed.  The students wrote a cover letter and attached their resume in application for the mock-interview for one of the many positions on offer from business participants. The interviews were held at CHHS from 9:30 am – 11:30 am.

, 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.
