Five JVS students and members of the JVS FFA Chapter participated and placed in the Ohio Job Interview Career Development Event, held virtually this year.
This event is designed for FFA members to practice and demonstrate the skills needed in seeking agricultural employment. Each part of the event simulates real world experiences that students will have when seeking employment.
Students had to write a cover letter, resume and reference sheet; fill out a job application; and participate in a virtual job interview.
“I think this contest is great for our students to participate in, since it is almost exactly how job interviews are in the real world,” said Beth Berthold, landscape and greenhouse management instructor and FFA advisor. “The skills used in this contest are helpful to them when they are 15 or 55.”
In the first-year junior or senior division, Collin Gill, industrial equipment mechanics junior from North Ridgeville, placed 2nd.
In the junior division, Kylee Gill, landscape and greenhouse management junior from Keystone, placed 10th. Savanna Tletski, industrial equipment mechanics junior from Wellington, placed 12th.
In the senior division, Spencer Gottschling, industrial equipment mechanics senior from Elyria, placed 7th. Victoria Sprague, landscape and greenhouse management senior from Keystone, placed 9th.
