Over 500 senior students at Maple Grove Senior High School participated in a 15-minute mock interview the second week of January with almost 70 business professionals. Some of the businesses include TopLine Credit Union, Century Link, MCH Technologies, Simonson’s, Americana Community Bank and Liberty Mutual Insurance. Through the English curriculum students learn about ‘Life After High School’ and create resumes, practice interviewing, and conclude with an actual interview where they are evaluated on appearance, listening, verbal communication, eye contact, poise and assertiveness. Both the student and the interviewer love the opportunity to meet one another and feel inspired by what each one is doing. KARE 11 featured a What’s Cool In School segment about this activity too. If anyone is interested in volunteering to interview, contact the Osseo Schools Career Resource Centers.
