Rotary Club of Goleta Helps Dos Pueblos High Students with Mock Job Interviews

Source: Lynn Cederquist for the Rotary Club of Goleta

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.

If you would like to know more about Rotary International and the Rotary Club of Goleta, we invite you to attend our meetings, held on the second and fourth Tuesdays at the Elephant Bar Restaurant, 521 Firestone Road in Goleta. Visitors are most welcome to the dinner meeting, which begins at 6:30 p.m. Our meetings are fun and educational, with guest speakers. Enjoy camaraderie with men and women who are concerned and committed to making this a better world for all.

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!
