The Institute for Advanced Learning and Research (IALR) and partners offer mock interviews and professional development opportunities for high school students. Through the annual AspHIRE mock interview days, students in grades 10-12 develop their skills through a practice interview with a local professional and several employability skill sessions. Students are given a “conference” style experience, networking with peers and professionals at a professional lunch and attending breakout sessions.
IALR is looking for volunteers to participate as mock interviewers or session presenters. The minimum volunteer commitment is 1.5 hours, but business professionals and employers who would like to invest more time are welcome. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.
