With the pressures of Senior Exit Interviews approaching, the stress of doing well is just as big as graduation day.

Senior exit interviews take place either Tuesday the 27th or Wednesday the 28th, therefore, your date, place and time can be found in your school email. Be sure to check and arrive 15 minutes early for your interview as advised in the email.

“I am most stressed about not knowing what to say or if the people in the panel are going to like me,” said senior Alondra De La Riva. The interviews are extremely stressful but we have to keep in mind that they will only take about fifteen minutes and then it’s over. Once you’re done, we won’t have to stress about it anymore.

To give you some piece of mind here is some advice from Liberian Claudia Rivas “As long as you answer the questions honestly you will be okay. Remember to stay calm and good luck,” said Rivas.

Times and days vary, so check and prepare with some tips we have for a successful interview:

  • Make sure you go over your portfolio a day or two before your interview so that there are no surprises and you know what to say
  • Dress appropriately according to given dress code ( available down below)  
  • Get a good night’s sleep (8 – 9 hours preferably)
  • Practice by answering the questions that can be found on the link below
  • Wear black flats.  Teacher Joyce Feuerborn’s recommendation for a professional look, “Every woman should have a pair of black flats in their closet,” said Feuerborn.

Dress code:

MALE

  • Suit (preferred)
  • Slacks (dress pants)
  • Blazer or suit jacket
  • Ties
  • Dress shirt: preferably long-sleeved and monochromatic (one color)
  • Dress shoes
  • Dark socks and shoes (to match pants)

FEMALE

  • Blouse and skirt (complimentary)
  • Dress
  • Nice pants
  • Pantsuit (same colored top and bottom)
  • Appropriate hem lengths
  • Appropriate business shoes (low heels or flats)

THE FOLLOWING ARE NOT ALLOWED:

  • Low neckline
  • Sleeveless clothing
  • Exposed midriffs
  • Facial jewelry
  • Denim (jeans)
  • Tennis shoes, flip-flops
  • Extremely short skirts

    I would agree that the seniors were stymied and would not have been ready for their interview if it was not for their careful preparation for that day.I am not a senior yet as I am still a Sophmore, but I know that one day I will have to go through what the current seniors have gone through.I am glad that there have been guidelines to help out these seniors who have needed to go through.When the day comes, and I need to go to this interview I will follow these guidelines as they seem very helpful and will prepare me to get through the senior interview.

    Seniors already perceive that they have to be in a formal position when they have to go to their Senior exit interviews. The Seniors try as much to steep themselves in the advice that is provide for them so that they successfully pass their interviews with ease. Most of the Seniors are entirely vigilant as they have to be quite flawless in their interviews and not be in a failed position or state.

    I feel as if seniors are well prepared for their interview. when the day finally comes. Yet, they may be very anxious but mot to the point they are tremulous. As a sophomore in this school I feel that we get support and we are taught not to belittle this situation that is coming in 2 years. Unless a person is sordid about not preparing I can perceive that the person would be full of anxiety and have a panic attack.
