PREPARING FOR THE FUTURE.
Drew Obermeyer, the Agriculture Instructor and FFA Advisor at Valley Height said, “Doing events like job interviews are crucial in giving the students a better understanding on how real job interviews go and prepares them for the future.” The Valley Heights FFA students, along with many other schools in the area, recently were preparing vigilantly for their Job Interviews. Junior and FFA officer, Emma Brungardt, said, “I have been preparing for any questions they could possibly ask me, it's as thrilling as it is nerve racking!”
Job Interviews, as described by Emma Brungardt, are basically simulated interviews that FFA students have to ‘apply’ for. Students choose a job of their choice and start to prepare for their fake interview however they see fit. This includes their resumes, and research on any questions they might be asked pertaining to the specific job they’re applying for. Since this is a formal event, all FFA students who are attending have to wear their formal attire.
On January 12th, two students from Valley Heights represented Valley Heights school in Job Interviews: Junior, Emma Brungardt, and Junior, Dakota Gillig. Emma Brungardt placed 6th in the Junior division of the interviews, despite this being her first time participating in this type of event. “Both Emma and Dakota had a strong day in Employment Skills,” says Mr. Obermeyer in a Facebook post.
