The Senior mock interview program is another workforce development initiative that the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce began offering for students in 2014. The goal of this program is to prepare each student with the skills necessary in completing an application, preparing a resume and having an interview with a business professional. To impact as many high school seniors as possible, the Chamber offers the program in both the fall and spring semesters.
 
Recently, 30 business professionals took time from their work schedules to interview seniors at the GOAL Academy, Bradley Central, Cleveland and Walker Valley high schools. The professionals interviewed 400 students and provided them with feedback on ways to improve their resume and interview skills.
 
“Doing well in an interview is an important tool to ensure employment and a future career,” states Sherry Crye, director of workforce development for the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce “We feel this experience will help these students as they prepare for whatever path they choose after graduating high school.”
