Learning Professionalism: DATA Mock Interviews

Monico Castaneda interviews with independent filmmaker and educator Vincent Sassone

In an effort to prepare students for life after high school, DATA students participated in a mock interview day with community and industry partners on February 21st.

Various job positions were submitted by industry partners, ranging from Production Assistant to Museum Curator. Students were able to sign up to be interviewed for job positions of their choice.

Students presented themselves professionally, with business attire and formal resumes/portfolios. "Potential employers" then ranked each student on a scale from "You're hired!" to "Don't call us, we'll call you."

DATA senior Chris Gutierrez created a short video documenting the day and the students' experiences.
