ABA Mock Interview Day at Sun Valley March 20th, 2018


WHO: All Aston Business Association Members – and Friends of the ABA and SVHS

WHAT: Mock Interview Day

WHEN: Tuesday, March 20, 2018 7:30AM TO 10:45AM +/-

WHERE: Sun Valley High School

Mock Interview Day gives the senior class at Sun Valley High School the opportunity to experience a ‘real-world’ interview conducted by members from the ABA – and Friends of the ABA – volunteers such as you!

The seniors prepare a resume and job interview application letter. They bring these to one-on-one interviews of about 10-15 minutes with business and professional people. More interviewers allows us to give more time per interview. This gives them a realistic learning experience helping to prepare them for college or job interviews. The interviewers then complete a brief one page evaluation and include whatever comments they feel might improve or encourage that student. These are later reviewed by the faculty with the students.

The faculty tries to pair the student’s interest with an interviewer’s background as closely as possible. They tell me that the students look forward to this every year, and are actually disappointed when there are no additional comments on their evaluation review!

Mock Interview Day is Tuesday, March 20, 2018. We presume the format will be the same as prior years. You are asked to arrive by 7:30AM for a brief introduction by Principal Patrick Sasse, and students will begin arriving at 8:00AM. Coffee and refreshments are provided. Ending time depends upon the number of volunteers, but has recently been concluding before 11AM. Please feel free to join us for whatever time you can spare. You are encouraged to tell others whom you think might be interested and available.

THANK YOU to all who have participated in previous years. We hope this will fit your schedule and thank you in advance for your participation again in 2018. If you have not been able to be with us before, we encourage you to consider volunteering for this worthwhile opportunity. Our volunteer force grows in number each year as nearly all feel they get back more than they give.

Look forward to seeing you March 20th . Thanks in advance for your continued support.
