Mock Interviews to Prepare High School Seniors

Rotarians and members of the 20/40 Young Entrepreneur group join together to provide mock interviews to high school seniors within the Sumter County School System. Normally, these interviews are held in person with the students arriving in business attire; however, this year, we are having to transition to virtual interviews as the Sumter County School System is still virtual. Interviewers are provided a profile sheet from which to ask questions and then provide critique to each student to help refine their skills and better prepare them for interviews with colleges and/or employers.

The students are assessed on how they present themselves, eye contact, answers to questions and are also provided practical tips and suggestions for improving their interview skills.
