Details: The Junior Interview and Career Fair is a collaborative effort of Reno High School parents, Reno High Booster Club, students, teachers, and members of the community, including Peppermill Resort Spa Casino.  Reno High School juniors develop a resume and learn basic interview techniques, then practice what they’ve learned during a mock interview.

 

Community volunteers whose experience spans a range of industries (judges, attorneys, small business owners, retired professionals) conduct one-on-one interviews with students. Each interview lasts for about 20 minutes and concludes with feedback from the interviewer.

 

Students also visit a Career Fair. Some of the businesses represented this year include:

 

• Amazon

• Renown Regional Medical Center

• Eriksen Framing

• Wood Rodgers

• Washoe County District Attorney’s Office

• Wells Fargo

• Reno Police Department

• Nevada’s Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology

• UNR/TMCC

• The Discovery Museum

 

Editors' Notes: Reno High School students have created a short video entitled “Interview Do’s and Don’t’s,” which features Principal Kris Hackbusch as the student being interviewed. You may access the video here: https://rhsjuniorinterviewproject.wordpress.com/interview-dos-and-donts/
