DUBOIS – Eighth grader John Wells, right, listens during a mock job interview with Kristina Kline, director of Human Resources and School Safety, left, during Dawna Vanderpool’s English class at the DuBois Area Middle School.
The interview was part of eighth grade career studies at the school. The students watched a video on interviewing, selected a profession from a list provided that would be applicable to teenagers and explained in an application why they were qualified.
Professionals from the area spoke to the students about careers and then conducted mock interviews. The interviewer then gave the students tips and the students also critiqued each other.
