GRADUATION INTERVIEWS

Dear High School Parents:

On Friday February 9th the Grade 12 students will do their Interview Project.

Students will have a 20 minute interview with an adult who is working in the career or profession they are interested in.  Students will dress professionally and bring their portfolios.  The first 10 minutes you will interview the student as if they are applying for a job or internship with you.  The second 10 minutes the student will interview you about your job, how you got started, what interests you about it, and any recommendations you might have for someone interested in pursuing this job or career.  This is a chance for you to share the wealth of knowledge and experience you have with a graduating RCS student.

The interviews can be any time during the day, between 8:30 and 3:30, whatever is convenient for you.  I ask for an hour of your time so you can interview two or three students. You will fill in a short feedback form about the student after the interviews are over.  You will get credit for 3 volunteer hours.

I am looking for adults with the following jobs:

Lawyer

Doctors – Paediatrician, Dermatology, cardiac surgeon or GP

If you are available for one hour between 8:30 – 3:30 on Friday. February 9th and could help our students please let me know as soon as possible.  The parents who volunteered last year enjoyed sharing their knowledge and meeting our students.

Please feel free to share this information with other parents who might be interested in participating.

Many thanks.
