Mock Interviews: ACHS

Mock Interviews returned to ACHS for the first time since March 12, 2020! Students in Personal Finance and Life Resource Management were interviewed by a volunteer from the community. Individual feedback was provided, as well as tips for the whole group. The next round will be in the Spring. Parents – watch your email for this wonderful opportunity to share your experience with our students. Community members can also contact Donna Corcoran, CTE Department Chairperson, if interested in participating!

93 Students enrolled in Life Resource Management (LRM) and Personal Finance at Lakes Community High School participated in the Mock Interview Project on Thursday, November 3. Volunteers from the community reviewed students resumes, noted if students were dressed for success, and asked them a series of questions. They used a basic scoring rubric and provided feedback to students on how they did. The experience of a “real” interview was extremely valuable to our students as we often don’t receive feedback on interviews. After the interviews concluded, volunteers participated in a brief open forum with students.
