Tuesday Edition, V. 1, E. 8 – 10/4/2022: NEW Mock Interview Program!

October 4, 2022

Hey juniors and seniors (and fams)!

I hope this finds you well and having checked off one more box on your college process checklist; the FAFSA! The FAFSA opened on Saturday is available NOW for you to complete with your parents.

Here’s the link: https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa

Now, we’ve got some fun news:

This year, in conjunction with the college fair here on campus, we’ll also be offering a Mock Interview program. This means, you can sign up for a slot to practice interviewing with professional experts from our community. We have volunteer interviewers from dozens of fields, both professional and academic. They have interviewed students, adults, employees, and more. We’re so thankful to them for enabling us to offer you this service.

So whether you want to practice for a scholarship interview or a job interview of any kind, this program is for you.

Please fill out this interest form if you are interested:
