Yarmouth High School Bulletin for Saturday, March 06, 2021
Attn: Juniors! - Sign up for a College Interview practice workshop ATTENTION JUNIORS! Want to feel prepared as you head into your college interviews in the coming months? The Guidance Department wants to help you do just that! We are hosting an Interview Skills Workshop with Mrs. Doane and Mrs. Michaelsen, as well as practice interviews with college admission representatives. Both programs are designed to help prepare you for your college interviews. Please read below to learn more about each event. Part 1: Interview Skills Workshop This workshop will cover the basics of successful interviewing: how to prepare, the dos and don’ts of interviewing, and strategies to win over your interviewer and make the best impression. The Interview Skills Workshop will be held after school (date to be determined). You are welcome to attend the workshop, even if you do not plan to have a practice interview. Part 2: Practice Interviews Practice interviews will be conducted virtually by college admission professionals, following the format used on college and university campuses. Following your session, your interviewer will complete an evaluation of your interview, which will be returned to you so you know what you did well, and what you should improve upon before your real interviews. Practice interviews will be held via Zoom during the weeks of March 1 and March 8. It is recommended that you attend the Interview Skills Workshop before your interview, however it is not required that you do so. Additional Information Participation in both programs is optional, and is only available to juniors. All juniors must fill out the sign-up sheet with their advisor, indicating if they would like to participate in the program. Interviews will last about 10-15 minutes and every effort will be made to schedule interviews during study hall periods.
