11th Annual TCCAC MOCK INTERVIEW EVENT

May 10, 2022 (9:00AM-1:00PM)

For high-school students, interviewing for that first job can be nerve-wracking! It can also be very challenging when you have not done it before. However, putting your best foot forward during the interview is a critical step towards landing a great job during high-school and a valuable skill to develop for the future. The TCCAC Planning Committee invites students ages 15-21 to participate in the 11th Annual Mock Interview Event!
