*Mock Interviews


We invite participating students to go through a formal mock interview with a real hiring manager!  Interviews are estimated to take up to 30 minutes.  We recommend this portion of the event for our 11th & 12th grade students, but all are welcome! 

Students who register should make a point to visit the Mock Interview portion of the "Make WOW Great" webpage prior to the event to prepare and learn tips/tricks leading up to their interview. -- coming soon

NOTE: Please include a firm number of students who would like to participate in this opportunity on your registration form. We recruit hiring managers according to the number of students who have registered for this portion of the event, so it is critical we keep an accurate count of participants!!
