United Way Emerging leaders to help students learn crucial interview and resume skills


CLARKSBURG, W.Va. – Students wanting to make a good impression for their potential employers will have a chance to hone their skills Friday in Harrison County.

The United Way “Emerging Leaders” is holding a “Hired or Fired” mock interview workshop for students entering the workforce.

More than a dozen area businesses are participating in the process which will help students learn how to create an effective resume and how to carry themselves during an interview.

“It’s extremely important because you can be really great at a job but if you don’t make a good impression in that interview, or a lot of times, if your resume doesn’t look any good, it just goes to the trash and you don’t even get called in,” Austin Thrasher of Thrasher Engineering said. “So, I would say it’s critical for people to understand that.”

The event takes place tomorrow from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Gaston Caperton Center in downtown Clarksburg.

Thrasher says the Emerging Leaders group wants to make this a yearly event.
