Kearny – Ray High School’s annual Senior Interview Day was held on Mon., Nov. 25. All seniors participated in a mock interview with former graduates who have gone on to success in their chosen field. The experience is designed to help prepare seniors for real life interviews.
When participating, seniors have to present themselves as if it were a real interview. This includes dressing professionally, having their paperwork – application, cover letter and resume- ready, and following the given instructions on job interview skills. Each student has a 15-20 minute interview, with the interviewer assigned to them, and are then evaluated on their application and interview. Feedback is provided on their evaluation form.
Each interviewer is assigned 7 – 8 seniors to interview, and from their pool of applicants, they award a Top Job Applicant Award to the one who they would have offered the job to. This year’s Top Job Applicants were Andrew Riley, Dominic Bravo, Beauna Hathaway, Mikayla Seller, Yvette DIckey, and Grant Armendariz.
The Top Job Applicants then had a group interview with all six interviewers and the overall winner was Dominic Bravo, who will be receiving a book scholarship for the college of his choice. The money for this scholarship is being donated by the interviewers.
