Rotary Club of Goleta Conducts Mock Interviews of Dos Pueblos Students

Members of the Rotary Club of Goleta volunteer each year for the Mock Interviews at Dos Pueblos High School, to help students improve their communication in real-life job interviews.

This year, Rotary Club President Mike Pitts along with Sally Arnold, vocational service chairwoman, coordinated with Lauri Clayton of Dos Pueblos to continue the annual Mock Interviews with students, giving them the opportunity to practice interviewing for greater confidence answering those sometimes tough questions, including what is your strength and weakness, or what would you do if someone you worked with was doing a disservice to the business owner.

This year the exercise had a new twist: At the end of the student interview, time was given to the student to ask the interviewer some questions.

The students enjoyed this part of the Mock Interview even better. The Mock Interviews give students one-on-one practice with an adult in a supportive atmosphere, which increases their  confidence when having to give a real interview, not only for a job but for college interviews.

This is one example of how the Rotary Club of Goleta is serving our community.

If you would like to learn more about Rotary International and serve your community locally or internationally, we invite you to our bimonthly meetings the at 6:30 p.m. the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month at the Frog Bar & Grill at the Glenn Anne Golf Club. Come and enjoy comradeship with men and women who have dedicated to the Rotary pledge of "Service Above Self."

Contact Pitts at [email protected] or membership chair David Dart at [email protected].

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!
