3 Black River FFA members shine at State Job Interview Contest

On December 2, three members of the Black River FFA Chapter proudly represented our chapter in the State Job Interview Career Development Event at The Ohio State University. Anna Shearer, Molly Cordonnier and Cole Haswell, were amongst nine other individuals within their respective divisions. The Job Interview competition is one that allows students to showcase their ability to apply and interview for a position within an agricultural company.

Each member prepared a resume and cover letter, compiled a portfolio, completed an application, interviewed with a company representative and completed a follow up letter. Students were divided into divisions based upon their grade level.

After a second round of interviews, our first FFA member, Molly Cordonnier, competed in the freshman division and earned seventh place. Anna Shearer, competed in the sophomore division and earned sixth place, and Cole Haswell competed in the first-year junior/senior division and earned eighth place.

Congratulations to the Black River FFA Job Interview participants for earning a state top-ten plaque and title. They did a great job and will be able to use the skills and experience they gained when applying for future jobs.
