gets interview practice.
How about a meeting with community leaders in person and by conducing mock job interviews.
Alan Walter's classes have not only had guests visit his classes, but they've used the latest technology to have real business people conduct mock job interviews with the students.
The award-winning Academy of Business & Technology, or AOBT, is a “school within a school” at Clairemont High that focuses on business, computer, and communication skills.
"Our academy program is committed to providing students with an array of unique educational activities and opportunities that are not typically incorporated into general education courses," said Walter.

The academy's internship fair welcomed ten business partners, who interviewed students for internships. Participating businesses included Steve Lyons State Farm Insurance, California Coast Credit Union, Kaplan College and Taylor | Anderson law offices.
Students also received practice in how to interview for a job. Business partners conducted the interviews, which were recorded so the students could watch and critique their performance later.
