On April 12, juniors practiced their interviewing skills with employers from local businesses. Students had to prepare an application letter and a resumé. They reported to the cafeteria where they were matched with a community member for a one-to-one interview.

Students were asked questions about their extracurricular activities, academic achievements, and how they could improve upon their weaknesses.

One of the interviewers was Linganore alumni Mark Aswall. He is a Branch Manager at Sandy Spring Bank.

Aswall said, “When I graduated, no one prepared us for interviews. I thought it was a good opportunity to help give back and prepare future Linganore graduates.”

Students received grades from their interviewers based on professionalism and quality of answers. Junior interviews are part of the career unit in English classes.
