Maroochydore High School Mock Interviews

Steve, Larney, Liana, Jack and Michelle with High School Student 
The Alex rotary have been part of the regular Maroochydore High School Interviews for many years now, and we were delighted to continue that association last Thursday morning. Bob Thompson has been helping the kids with tips on job applications and interviews for over 5 years, and we took the opportunity of letting the Rotarians and volunteers present at the fantastic morning tea to know about the adults "Job Club" starting up in 2021 at the Kawana Sports Hub. 
We also had interest from My Weekly Preview on the mock interview program and so the organiser in chief, Steve Hind from Maroochydore Rotary wrote these words which capture why Rotarians do this every year for the students...
"The annual Mock Interviews for Maroochydore State High School year 10 students not only form an integral part of their curriculum, they provide an excellent opportunity for Students to have a practice run at a Job Interview with “strangers” in our community so the actually get to feel some nerves, but more importantly, they gain valuable life experience in what it will be like when they actually apply for that job of their dreams.
The local Rotary Cluster on the Sunshine Coast always proudly supports this event and it’s one I am very glad to be involved with, pulling together between 20 to 25 Volunteers each year to work our way through the cohort. The legendary Morning Tea is a big drawcard for those that have had the pleasure of tucking in and the School usually provides a token of their appreciation with a box of chocolates and a certificate for each Volunteer. The most rewarding part? Knowing we have helped today’s youth towards a successful careers and meeting some of the truly talented up and coming youngsters who you just know are really going places in this world."
A certain scribe has also got to mention what a great job the Maroochydore High School Team does...many of the students we met were truly inspirational.
