Metro Tech Job Interview Fair was a big success

More than 300 seniors at Metro Tech High School representing 21 different CTE programs participated in a first-time mock interview fair earlier this spring. The all-day event was co-sponsored by the Valley of the Sun United Way and the Department of Economic Security.

In addition to district staff, nearly 120 industry professionals volunteered their time to interview students throughout the day.

The event was so successful, that some of the practice interviews led to actual job offers. CTE Program Facilitator and event organizer, Victoria Pettit, said there are now plans to expand this event to additional PUHSD campuses in the 17-18 school year.
