Hello Mike and Abby…

Mock Interviews are coming up and I feel unprepared. I haven’t experienced something like SLS for a while and because they seem pretty similar, I’m getting anxious 💔💔 On top of that I’ve never been through an interview before which adds on to my anxiety . Though I do think it’ll help later because I want to get a job this summer! Still, all my friends seem so prepared and their resumes look so well put together compared to mine. What should I do? 🙁

Sincerely, Scared Junior

Dear Scared Junior,

Mock Interviews are definitely a little scary and I’m sure your peers are also feeling the nerves! You can feel better about the upcoming mock interview by practicing and answering basic interview questions (which you can find on Google!). You can even practice handshakes or have a friend ask you some questions. If you’re feeling a bit down about your resume, remember this is not final! You can always add on to your resume, this summer you can do a few programs or even join a few clubs now, and on top of that if you fulfill your plan of getting a job it’ll be amazing for your resume!

Sincerely, Mike and Abby

Q #2 :
Dear Mike and Abby,

A lot of students have recently gotten COVID-19 and I’m one of them. Luckily I’m asymptomatic, but what I’m really worried about is how I tell my friends or the people I’ve been in contact with that I have Covid? I feel sooo bad and really hope I didn’t give them Covid. What if they hate me? Or what if they don’t want to talk to me again because I gave them Covid? I also don’t know how I’m going to be able to catch up on work once I’m no longer positive. I’m going to have no friends because of this and basically fail every class.

Thanks, Person Behind the Covid Outbreak…

Dear Person Behind the Covid Outbreak,

I’m sure they’ll be very understanding. The best approach is to offer your apologies and advise them to get tested. You should also tell them as soon as possible so you can prevent any possible Covid cases. The sooner you tell them the better.

For school, email your teachers about your situation and they will be able to accommodate you. You can ask them about the homework, extensions, and exams. They might even have previously-recorded Zoom lessons on the topics they’re teaching.

Communicate with your teachers and friends and you will be caught up in no time!

Sincerely, Mike and Abby
