The Interview Skills Workshop has helped hundreds of Hinsdale Central Parents and Students.  The Workshop’s objective is to provide Juniors and Seniors the opportunity to participate in one-on-one interviews with executive recruiters, alum interviewers and industry HR and professionals. The Interviews provide students real-life, first-hand experience with an Admissions Rep, College Alum, Coach or College Dept Chair. The students' interviews are video-taped and students are allowed to take this tape home to check out for themselves how they did in the process including: answering questions, posture, and body language.
