Students practice job interviews

4-24-15 Mock Interview day

More than 200 high school students from Clare, Gladwin, and Isabella counties recently practiced job interviews and had their resumes critiqued during this year’s Mock Interview Day; an annual event presented by a committee representing Central Michigan University, Clare-Gladwin RESD, Gladwin County Economic Development Corporation, Manitowoc Foodservice, Middle Michigan Development Corporation, Michigan Works! 7B Consortium, and MSU Extension.

High school juniors and seniors from Beal City, Beaverton, Clare, Farwell, Gladwin, Harrison, and Shepherd gathered at Central Michigan University’s Bovee Center to strengthen those essential career competencies with guidance from approximately 65 area professionals who volunteered their time to conduct the interviews and critiques. Informational workshops were also offered by Bandit Industries, Inc. and MSU Extension covering topics including job etiquette, interview skills, budgeting, and proper interview attire.

“After today, I feel like I could go into an interview with confidence,” said a student participant. Another student commented, “I really enjoyed this experience. It will help me in the future and I think a lot of kids should experience it too.”
