Volunteers sought for mock job interviews with LHS students
LAHAINA — The newest group of Lahainaluna High School students to enroll in the University of Hawaii Maui College Lahaina Education Center’s “Introduction to Employment Preparation” class is enthusiastic and ready to learn.
Each semester, a group of LHS students attend a six-week course that will prepare them for the job search process. They learn tips on resume development, proper business attire and interviewing skills.
To better focus their skills, each participant is asked to select an actual West Maui business for which they’d like to work, and then focus each assignment on that specific job.
The highlight of the class is the final “mock interview” day. Volunteer interviewers, generally from the Maui College community, are invited to attend, so that the students have an opportunity to practice what they’ve learned.
This year, the Lahaina Education Center would like to recruit mock interview volunteers from our business community. After all, these students just might be your future employees!
If you’d like more information, or think you might want to volunteer as an interviewer, call 662-3911 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The class meets on Wednesday afternoons, and the tentative mock interview date is Oct. 26.
The U.H. Maui College Lahaina Education Center is located at 60 Kenui St. by the Front Street Apartments, one block south of Lahaina Cannery Mall.
