Deniliquin High School Year 11 students were put to the test this week as part of the annual mock interview program.
Nerves were flowing last week when Deniliquin High School Year 11 students took part in the annual mock interview program.
About 70 students were interviewed by local identities in their chosen field in an effort to prepare them for a ‘real’ interview process.
In the lead up to the interviews, students developed resumes and application letters and researched the mock job or scholarship for which they were applying.
Students also attended the annual First Impressions Last day in June, which offered a range of valuable interview techniques.
Deni High careers advisor and senior school coordinator Donna Van Lieshout said the program was always well received by students.
‘‘The students really take it seriously,’’ she said.
‘‘They experience nerves as if it were a real interview, but sometimes they are just as nervous as the interviewee.
‘‘A lot of the people who interview the students come back and do it every year.
‘‘We are very fortunate we have a wonderful community that helps us out all the time.’’
Students were judged on punctuality, presentation, knowledge of the job and preparation of a resume.
