Junior Interview Project
The date of the 2020-2021 Junior Interview Project and Career Fair is unclear in this COVID world. Typically, each junior visits the large gym during their US History Class to participate in a mock-interview with a community volunteer. He/she spends the other half of the period visiting a Career Fair with professionals in the fields of construction, engineering, law enforcement/criminal justice, military service and departmental representatives at UNR and TMCC (to name a few).
Students visit The CUBE during their English class a few weeks prior to develop a resume. All students are expected to bring a resume with them on interview day. See below for the basic resume template.
We thank the Peppermill Resort Spa Casino for their kind donation of tables and lunches (for volunteer interviewers) and the Reno High School Booster Club for their donation towards Career Fair Exhibitor lunches. Donna Clark has volunteered her time, for many years, coordinating our volunteer interviewers. Gretchen Bietz and Shelly Bass have kindly coordinated the Career Fair.
Interview Do's and Don'ts

What should I wear to my interview? We are asking all students to dress professionally, specifically business casual. That means conservative and clean.
Girls: dresses, skirts (no shorter than mid-thigh when seated) or dress pants and blouses (no see through, chest baring, slinky), suits, dress sandals or pumps with a reasonable heel height (2" or less)
Guys: collared shirts, ties if you have one, dress pants or khaki pants, suit jacket or suit (only if you currently own one), socks and closed toe shoes.
PLEASE DO NOT LET ATTIRE CREATE STRESS FOR YOU. If you do not own clothes that you think are appropriate come see Mrs. Lerude in The CUBE.
