“KCCC Holds Mock Interviews with Local Business Professionals”

interviews this week with local employers. Students were evaluated on their resume,
introduction, appearance, interview questions, and overall employability. Mock interviews
are conducted with students each year in preparation for job interviews with future

“Senior Mock Interviews at KCCC provide a wealth of opportunities and experience
for our students. Students are challenged to show professionalism in many areas and get
that “first experience” of a professional interview in a recognizable place. Many of our
students were offered second interviews or a phone call back and some were offered a job
on the spot! This is truly something that our staff and students walk away saying, “I’m so
glad I did that!” said Clarissa Bush, KCCC School Counselor.

Students are able to create relationships with adults that support success through
KCCC Mock Interviews. Many students have follow-up shadowing, second interviews, and
some of them secure employment.

KCCC would like to thank the following business professionals and businesses who
volunteered their time to conduct interviews with our students: Gail Reinhart (Five Seasons
Landscaping), Donna Baker (Shannon Staffing), Nate Hudepohl (EWI), Jeremy Biggs
(JELD-WEN), Denise Patrick and Emily Vonck (YMCA of Mount Vernon), Chris Mead (Ariel
Corporation), Lori Rudrick (Ohio Means Jobs), Barb Davies (Ohio Eastern Star Home), Paul
Eddy (Cosby Heating and Cooling), Linda Nelson, Sherry Curry (KCCC), Austin Semerar
and John Swiatek (Fredericktown Chevrolet), Wendall Yoder (North Main Cafe), Jackie
