  Ray High School’s annual Senior Interview Day was held on Monday, Nov. 20.  All seniors participated in a mock interview with former Ray High School graduates who have gone on to be successful in their chosen field. 

  Seniors have to present themselves as if it were a real interview and are asked to dress professionally and have with them their application, cover letter, and resume – which are completed in their senior English class in the weeks prior to the event.  Instruction on job interviewing skills and how to conduct themselves in an interview is also provided. 

  Each student had a 15-20 minute interview with their assigned interviewer.  They are then evaluated on their application materials and interview and feedback is provided to them on their evaluation form.  The experience helps better prepare seniors for real life interviews as they participate in their job search in the future. 

The top applicant is Sage Berg. Pictured from left are: Tiffany Boyd, Karrie Sheffield, Jay Wernett, Sage Berg, Richard Verdugo, Angela Wernett, Bettina Cruz.

  Each interviewer was assigned 6 or 7 seniors to interview and from their pool of applicants they award a “Top Job Applicant Award” to the senior in their group who they would have offered the job to.  This year’s Top Job Applicants were Sage Berg, Tommie Thompson, Chandler Coleman, Tristan Foster, Janae Ruiz, and Elizabeth Ziegler.  The Top Job Applicants then had a group interview with the 6 interviewers and the overall winner was Sage Berg who received a $100 Visa gift card. 

  Congratulations to all the participants.
