Seniors and juniors in education fields will have the opportunity to gain valuable interviewing practice when Fort Hays State University's Career Services sponsors the annual Teacher Mock Interview day Friday, Feb. 8, in Sheridan Hall, room 214.
Representatives from Salina and WaKeeney school districts and Dr. Jim Barrett, chair of the Department of Advanced Education Programs, will conduct the interviews. Students will have a networking opportunity and gain interview experience and valuable feedback on strengths and weaknesses.
Students should bring a resume and dress professionally.
"It's a good way to make a first impression," said Dan Rice, director of Career Services. "Over the years, we've even had students offered jobs after a mock interview. It's a fun exercise and a great opportunity."
Career Services' website, fhsu.edu/careers/ has a variety of information on writing resumes and interviewing skills.
Participants can sign up for an interview through a Careers for Tigers account or by contacting Career Services at 785-628-4260.
