Harrison Co. students get real-world interview experience from area employers


CLARKSBURG, W.Va. – The United Way Emerging Leaders are helping Harrison County students make the right impression when entering the job market.

Dozens of area businesses held mock interviews with around 50 graduating seniors at the Gaston Caperton Center in Clarksburg, Friday.

Students were given the chance to sit down and practice their job interview skills with real employers and learn how to make that resume shine.

“It’s a way for our emerging leaders group to give back to our community and really engage the youth with the united way and connect them to the employers in the area,” Whitney Moore of Pratt & Whitney said.

Students also learned about how employers view the social media presence of job applicants.

Emerging leaders hopes to hold an event like this one next year.
