Wednesday & Thursday, May 20th & 21st—Can you spare an hour to help a local high school student? For the last few years Marina High School has conducted mock job interviews with its entire senior class as part of the culminating senior project. They develop a cover letter and a resume, they complete a job application, they then "go on their job interview," and then follow up with a thank you letter (which you will receive). We are looking for community partners to attend and participate in these mock interviews. It is fun, snacks and coffee are provided, and some community partners have even found entry level employees through this process. If you can participate, please complete this form and return it, or simply email emcmullen@mpusd.k12.ca.us with the time slot you are available and contact information. For more information contact Elaine McMullen at (831) 583-2060.
