HENDERSON, Nev. – At a high school where college courses are a standard part of the curriculum, it’s only natural for the students to be well-prepared for job interviews and life after college.

“Our students and other applicants are missing job opportunities because of weak interviewing techniques,” said Dr. John Hawk, executive director for Nevada State High School.  “As a school we are dedicated to preparing our students for college and ‘real life’ experiences by teaching them strong interviewing techniques.”

The individuals needed for the mock interviews will help grade the students’ interviewing skills and offer advice on how they can improve. The interviews will take place Tuesday and Wednesday, April 6 and 7, at 7:45-10 a.m.; 9:45 a.m.-noon; and 12:45-3 p.m. Friday. April 9, interviews will take place from 7:45 -10 a.m., 9:45 a.m. –noon, 11:45 a.m.-2 p.m. All interviews will take place at Nevada State High School – located at 112 S.
