Dunckel Middle School is looking for parents and other community members to help prepare 8th graders to take their place in the world of work.
Adults will work with students in mock interviews held June 5 and 6, 7:30 a.m.-2:10 p.m.
Farmington Public Schools provides career education as a segment in the 8th grade Language Arts curriculum. Students prepare for their interviews by completing a career unit with their teachers during the previous week.
Mock interviews are conducted during each student’s scheduled English class, and volunteers will interview approximately 10 to 20 students per period. The volunteer interviewers will ask the students around 10 prepared questions, and students are rated on introduction, appearance, dialogue and closing.
Volunteers are given folders with instructions, and at the end of the interviews, they are asked to talk with students about how to improve interview skills.
Anyone interested in volunteering may contact Lita Hoyer, career development tech, at 248-489-3472 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
