Mock Interviews 2022

Once again Rotary Chadstone/East Malvern was approached by Ashwood High School to participate in their Year 10 Mock Interview Programme.  This is an initiative where students are required to apply for one of four positions and they are interviewed for that job. The students must provide a resume and a letter of application.

We have participated in the program now for many years. It is so great which is why we continue to provide the support to the school.
