Volunteers from both the Rotary Club of Goleta and the Rotary Club of Santa Barbara Sunrise recently stepped up to conduct the last mock job interviews of the school year at San Marcos High School, for seniors in Spring Econ classes.

This is a real world rite of passage for every senior at San Marcos, and these final 188 seniors proudly rose to the occasion, dressed in crisp interview suits and carrying polished resumes.

The Rotarians are always able and willing to equip students with essential life skills. Their motto, “Service Above Self” was clearly evident over the two-day event.

"One of Rotary International's areas of focus is education, and it is our clubs' pleasure to serve the youth of our local community in this area,” said Brian Rocha, president-elect for the Rotary Club of Goleta. “The ability to engage with teenagers through mock interviews allows the opportunity for them to learn real world, practical skills that are not taught in the traditional classroom."

— Lori Clayton is a career guidance advisor for San Marcos High School.

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!
