When it comes to preparing for interviews with colleges and potential employers, practice makes perfect for OLMA juniors.  Dressed for success and with resumes in hand, students participated in Mock Interview Day. They had two interviews each and received feedback in between provided by real-world Human Resources and College Admissions professionals.  Before Mock Interview Day, students participated in resume-writing and interview-skills workshops.  

“This is one of a series of programs that we offer to prepare students for college and beyond,” says Melissa Szawlewicz, Guidance Counselor.  “These same students will give their career interests a test drive in a few weeks as part of our Job Shadow Program. It’s all about preparation and building self-confidence.  Year after year, graduates return and share stories of how these activities helped them succeed.” 

Our Lady of Mercy Academy is a Catholic, accredited, college preparatory school for young women located in Newfield, NJ.  OLMA empowers young women to lead a world of change, realize their dreams and reach their full potential.
