Mock Interviews

The Culinary Arts department conducted mock interviews on April 4th-8th, 2022. The process lasted one week. On the first day, the Graduation Coach, Ms. Howard, instructed students on how to prepare and design resumes. Peer-to-peer consultations were the focus on the second day. And on the third day, the interviews began, which lasted three days. The interviewers scored on appearance, poise, presentation, preparation, and resume format. Jakeera Harris, William Reed, and Lebron Stoudamire placed as the top three amongst interviewees. The Mock Interviews were a positive addition to the culinary arts department as the students are now more prepared for college and careers. Mock interviews are a new requirement for all culinary arts students, where the top scorers will compete for an internship in the culinary arts field.
