Approximately 165 senior Career and Technical Education students participated this spring in a Mock Interview and Dress for Success Initiative at Quincy High School.  This experience gave the students an opportunity to practice interviewing skills in preparation for their pursuit of future employment.

 Prior to the interviews, students received classroom instruction focusing on interviewing skills and dressing for success and also attended an “Interview to Succeed” presentation in March by Sharon Evans of ITT Technical Institute.

Many of these interviews were conducted by community representatives in industries that matched the students’ major area of technical study.  Quincy High School Career and Technical Education is very grateful to those who gave up time from their busy work schedules to participate in this project.  Thanks go to the following:
