Goleta Rotary Evening Club Helps Dos Pueblos Students with Mock Interviews

Members pose tough questions in preparing students for real-life job interviews

Members of the Goleta Rotary Evening Club recently volunteered at Dos Pueblos High School to help with mock interviews with students, to better prepare them for real-life job interviews.

Career counselor Lori Clayton organized and coordinated with the Rotary Club for a week of scheduled student interviews. Students were required to submit their resumes to the interviewers and answers some interesting and often tough questions.

Example: What is your dream career, and why did you choose it? What are your strengths, skills and qualifications? Tell me about a difficult situation, and how did you handle it? What would you do if you were the only one on the team who is doing all the work? These are hard questions for most adults, and it was amazing how well the students from Dos Pueblos did in the mock interviews.

The Rotary members were impressed, not only with the students, but with the teachers and especially with the professional skills and inspiration they receive from counselors such as Clayton.

The Goleta Rotary Evening Club meets at 6:30 p.m. on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month at Elephant Bar, 521 Firestone Road. Guests are always welcome.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
