WHS Students Nervous, Excited and Ready for Their Senior Interviews
by Joana Haizel-Cobbina
On November 30th 2017, senior interviews took place at Walkersville High School. These interviews are conducted every year to help prepare students for a real life interview. Students are to bring their resume and their transcript to the interview; they are asked a series of questions in which they must answer truthfully in a well detailed answer. As the students sit in the sit and await their turn, many are excited while other are nervous.
“I think it’s going to be really easy. You just have to stay calm and talk,” commented senior Lindsey Winpigler as she sat waiting for her turn.
“It went well, I was a little nervous,” senior Rachel Green stated.
“I’m not too nervous because I like to think of it as just a normal conversation that would occur with anyone,” senior Haylie Petrosky said.
“I am nervous until I start talking and then we will see. I am anticipating the worst until I start talking,” senor Raquel Vasquez said.
“I’m not really nervous, I feel like people are thinking too much into it and once they actually get there it isn’t gonna be anything like they thought it was going to be,” commented senior Jacob Reese.
“It went well. The questions they asked are pretty easy. Just stay calm and relaxed if you have yours today,” senior Paige Shortt says.
“I think it went well. I had Mrs. Smith” senior Spencer Shortt commented with a laugh. “The interview taught me stuff that I didn’t know about myself,” senior Elisabeth Madson said.
“The interviews were very successful; we had over 140 students. The interviewers were very impressed with the students and the characters we had. It is always great to see students dress for success. This an opportunity for students to network with people outside the school and have a one on one conversation with people and share their aspirations,” Agriculture and SSL Advisor Barry Burch said.
As the interviews came to a close, the seniors walked out with their belongings and headed back to class. With each and every student hoping they left a good impression, they made their way down the hall with a smile on their face. We wish each student’s good luck who had yet to be interviewed and we wish the students getting interviewed in the spring good luck as well.
