Hiland FFA members participated in the District 8 FFA Job Interview Contest. Contest was held at Buckeye Career Center. Members who participated in this contest were Jessica Davis, Preston Shamp, and Rachelle Yoder.
This contest is designed to help students demonstrate skills needed to seek employment in all areas of agriculture. Prior to the contest members were to create a resume and cover letter. There are three parts to the contest. First, members fill out their applications for the position they are applying for. Then FFA members have a mock interview where they will be asked a series of questions about the job they are applying for. Finally, after the interview is completed, members then type up their follow-up letter. Different jobs that members could apply for were Buckeye Landscaping Intern Position, Roots Poultry, TSC Tractor Supply Co., Oak Ridge Farms, McCabe Outdoor Power, and Sandusky Humane Society. Jessica Davis applied for the Buckeye Landscaping Intern Position, Rachelle Yoder applied for Oak Ridge Farms, and Preston Shamp applied for McCabe Outdoor Power.
