For the second year Festival Foods has donated their time presenting a freshman unit on real world hiring practices designed for the first-time job seeker. The unit called, From the Application . . . to “You’re Hired”! and Everything In Between was presented to the four hundred plus students in the freshmen class.
The opening topic, on February 6, was social media in the hiring process and how to correctly complete an employment application. The second session, on February 26, covered resume/profile building and interview techniques.
The third session on March 6 provided individual mock interviews. The unit is approached from a real life perspective so students are required to bring a completed application and a resume/profile sheet to the interview. They also dressed as though they were going to a real interview.
