  • Shake the interviewer’s hand at the beginning to introduce yourself as well as at the conclusion of the interview
  • Bring your Transition Guide, Resume (corrected and reprinted) and 2-3 pieces of “evidence”
  • Your evidence should represent your growth over the last 3 years (and should be something you are passionate about and/or proud of and/or represents your future career)

  • Be prepared to answer interview questions for about 5 minutes

Note: need technology for your presentation? You must let Mrs. Dato know at least one week before the interviews. Grads of 2017 can begin preparing for their presentation by completing the Transition Guide by the January deadline and by collecting and analyzing 2 – 3 pieces of evidence that they can show to illustrate their skills and how they relate to their future.

Take the time to read the above documents to help prepare further.
