Virtual Interview Contest

  • Virtual Interview Contest

SkillsUSA is focused on preparing students for career success. With the changes in our world, it is now more important than ever that you know not only how to interview for your future career, but how to do it in a virtual format.

Starting in Summer 2020, SkillsUSA Tennessee Postsecondary is hosting statewide Virtual Interview Contests in all industry sectors!

Virtual Interview Contest Process:

Step #1: All chapters will receive “How to Prepare for Virtual Interviews” training packet created by the SkillsUSA Tennessee PS State Director

Step #2: Students practice virtual interviewing skills with their instructor, and create a professional resume with the Resume 101 resource. Students then participate in a virtual in-class competition to determine top 3 overall students in their program area.

Step #3 The top 3 students from each program submit their recorded virtual skills demonstration interviews and their professional resumes to the state director to be judged by industry professionals.*Scenarios and detailed instructions will be posted soon!

Step #4 The Top 10 finalists from each sector will be notified of their scheduled time to interview in using Microsoft Teams with a panel of industry professionals from their sector. Interviews will be recorded, and once all are scored the overall winners will be awarded Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals.
