Anyone who has ever interviewed for the job of their dreams has most likely encountered the dreaded prompt: “Tell me about yourself.”
Students from Western Wayne, Forest City, Honesdale, and Wallenpaupack all had the opportunity to practice their response to this prompt and many others as a result of their participation in the Annual D. Carl Peet Memorial Mock Interview Day – Students Test Interview Potential event held at The Park Street Complex in Honesdale on Thursday, March 23.
Twenty-one Western Wayne students participated in the event. Their participation counted as a part of one of the following courses: Business Communications and Procedures, Sports and Entertainment Marketing, and Entrepreneurship classes all taught by Theresa Lubash, Western Wayne business department chair. Lubash’s students have been taking part in this event for over 15 years.
Lubash is a part of the Wayne County School-to-Work Committee. The committee, who works to put together this event, is comprised of representatives from the four area school districts and members of the local business community. Twenty-four business people from various local businesses took part in the event and helped the students to have an authentic interview experience.
