Sally Arnold, vocational service chairwoman and secretary of the Rotary Club of Goleta co-organized with Lori Clayton, a human resources official at Dos Pueblos High School, several days of mock job interviews with students. Most of the students were seniors, many of whom have already had the often scary and uncomfortable first job interview in the “real world.”

Rotary members went over student résumés, providing suggestions on how they could improve them, and helped students to relax and become more comfortable during an interview. Typical questions asked were:

» What would you consider your strengths and weakness, and what would like to improve?

» What are you most proud of?

» What would you do if someone you liked was doing something wrong?

» What would you like as a career?

The Rotary Club of Goleta is grateful for the opportunity to give Dos Pueblos High students encouragement and confidence in this annual mock interview practice.
