This class will be a 90 minute college interview preparation session. After a general few minutes on how interviews work, we’ll cover appearance, manner, likely questions, and good subjects to share with your interviewer. The goal will be to familiarize attendees with common interview formats and help get the student ready to answer questions they may encounter as they apply to colleges. The instructor will “act” sample “exciting / engaging” student responses and some “lackluster” responses. In-session questions from participants will also be answered as time allows.
Target Audience – Juniors or Seniors planning to go to college
