Mock Interviews 

Each year considerable time and effort is put into preparing secondary students for their grade ten or twelve mock interviews. As being on the other side of the table, volunteers get to interview students listening to their presentations and offering feedback. With KPU volunteers we are able to provide valuable experience such as how to conduct and interview, effectively communicate and listen, review students resumes, and more. Post-secondary volunteers are extremely important for secondary students as this could be their very first interview or transition after grade twelve. Sign up and check to see what opportunities are waiting for you on myvolunteerpage.kpu
