Glen Cove High School hosted nearly 150 students at a Mock Interview Day on April 16.

Students from various classes in the English Department sat with professionals from outside the education field for a five- to 10-minute, one-on-one interview. The purpose of the activity was to prepare students for future careers by obtaining practical and necessary interview practice while still in high school. The interviewers treated the students as though they were applicants attempting to gain career-type positions.  

Some of the professionals included Glen Cove Mayor Tim Tenke; Glen Cove School Board President Amy Franklin; representatives from Northwell Health, New York Institute of Technology, private firms and public organizations; and other local government officials. The day was a tremendous success thanks to Work-Based Learning Coordinator Jason Smiloff and Youth Bureau Program Coordinator Jacquelyn Yonick. Glen Cove High School looks forward to future career-readiness events.
