Petal CTE Students Deck the Halls With Mock Interviews














This month, 29 business and industry volunteers donated more than 50 hours to conduct mock interviews at Petal High School. With their help, 153 second-year career and technical education students experienced the interview process and received feedback on their résumés, first impressions, professional dress, attitudes, knowledge and speaking abilities.
