We give students the opportunity to experience a formal interview. Faculty and peers interview students interested in becoming a peer leader, asking about their strengths, weaknesses, and reasons for wanting to work with middle school personalities each week. To evaluate their judgment we ask them to respond to a hypothetical situation. Seniors who are interested in community organizations' scholarships are also interviewed at school on a Saturday. Faculty and community organization representatives interview them. Our business and guidance departments cooperate to offer mock college and job interviews during the school day. Students submit a portfolio of their work, including a cover letter, resume, grades, and awards. After the interview students receive an evaluation of their interview through their business teacher.
