Mock Interviewer:  Our interviewers will be conducting up to 15-minute interviews with students.  Sample interview questions and scoring rubric are provided.  The scoring rubric will be mailed to the student post-event.  Anyone can conduct mock interviews, but we strongly prefer those with HR and/or interviewing experience!

Workforce Readiness Room Activities:  We have a room dedicated to activities that help students develop their workforce readiness skills.  If you have a skill or area of expertise that you would like to showcase, we need YOU as a Workforce Readiness volunteer!  Examples of workforce readiness room activities are How To Tie A Tie, Resume Building, Interview Tips and Tricks, Dining Etiquette, Budgeting, W-9, I-9 & Other Tax Information, etc.  Any skill or knowledge you think a student should have before graduating high school is welcome in the Workforce Readiness Room! 



"It's going to take a VILLAGE to build the
Workforce of Tomorrow!" -- we REALLY mean that!
