Students please check through the lost and found - items left after the end of the quarter will be donated. All lost items are located on the cart and table outside the office.

Due to the senior mock interviews, the library will be closed today. The printers will also be shut off.

Cg connect will be open after school today until 5:00 for junior high and after the game tonight for high school until 11:00.

The theme for tonight’s game is black out. If you purchased a spirit block shirt please wear that.

Tip #10 (December 14th) - Send thank-you notes. Write a thank-you note after every interview. Type each note on paper or send them by email, depending on the interviewers’ preferences. Customize your notes by referring specifically to what you and the interviewer discuss; for example, “I was particularly excited about [or interested by, or glad to hear] what you said about [fill in the blank].
Handwritten notes might be better if you’re thanking a personal contact for helping you in your job search. Whatever method you choose, notes should be sent within 48 hours of the interview.

To write a good thank-you note, you’ll need to take time after each interview to jot down a few things about what the interviewer said. Also, write down what you could have done better in the interview, and make adjustments before you head off for your next interview.

Today all seniors remember to go to the library to write your thank-you letter after your Mock Interview!

The Bulldog Newscast will be available for viewing during activity period today.

All seniors should stop in the guidance office before Friday to print resumes on good paper.

Tip #9 - Bring a copy of your resume with you when you go to every interview. If the interviewer has misplaced his or her copy, you’ll save a lot of time (and embarrassment on the interviewer’s part) if you can just pull your extra copy out and hand it over. Remember - you should have stopped in the guidance office to print your resume copies off on good paper before Mock Interviews tomorrow. If you have not done this yet, please stop in the guidance to complete this task.

Interview Tip #8- Make the most of the “Tell me about yourself” question. Many interviewers begin an interview with this question. So how should you respond? You can go into a story about where you were born, what your parents do, how many brothers, sisters, dogs, and cats you have, and that’s okay. But would you rather have the interviewer writing down what kind of dog you have - or why the company should hire you?

Consider responding to this question with something like: “Well, obviously I could tell you about lots of things, and if I’m missing what you want, please let me know. But the three things, I think are most important for you to know about are… [List 3 selling points here]. I can expand on those a little if you’d like.” Interviewers will normally say, “Sure, go ahead.” Then you say, “Well regarding the first point, [give an example here]. And when I was working for the company, [give another example here]. This strategy enables you to focus the first 10 minutes of the interview on all your key selling points. The “Tell me about yourself” question is a golden opportunity. Don’t miss it!

Tip #7- Speak the right body language. Dress appropriately, make eye contact, give a firm handshake, have good posture, speak clearly, and don’t wear strong perfume or cologne! Sometimes interview locations are small rooms that may lack good air circulation. You want the interviewer paying attention to your job qualifications--not passing out because you’ve come in wearing Chanel No. 5 and the candidate before you was doused with Brut, and the two have mixed to form a poisonous gas that results in not getting an offer!

Bulldogs LEAD is a school wide campaign about Leadership, Encouraging Others, Achieving Goals, and Doing the Right Thing. K through 12 students will be nominated each quarter by their teachers for demonstrating these character traits. This quarter we will focus on Empathy and Kindness - Encouraging Others.

Motivational Monday Quote - “Kindness is not an act. It is a lifestyle."

Tip #6- Practice, practice, practice. It’s one thing to come prepared with a mental answer to a question like, “Why should we hire you?” It’s another challenge entirely to say it out loud in a confident and convincing way. The first time you try it, you’ll sound garbled and confused, no matter how clear your thoughts are in your mind! Do it another 10 times, and you’ll sound a lot smoother and more articulate.  But you shouldn’t do your practicing when you’re “on stage” with a recruiter; rehearse before you go to the interview. The best way to rehearse? Get two friends and practice interviewing each other in a “round robin”: one person acts as the observer and the “interviewee” gets feedback from both the observer and the “interviewer.”: Go for four or five rounds, switching roles as you go. Another idea is to record your answer on your phone and then listen to it to see where you need to improve. Whatever you do, make sure your practice consists of speaking aloud. Rehearsing your answer in your mind won’t cut it.
