    Corona-Norco Unified School District high school students attended a special Student Career Day at the annual Corona Valley Chamber of Commerce Business Expo on Tuesday, April 10.


    Over 100 CNUSD students listened to a presentation about job interview strategies and then met with local business leaders to engage in mock interviews. Cynthia Schneider, Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer of American Security Bank, shared interview tips with students to prepare them for their mock interview sessions.


    The bank executive offered advice about everything from handshakes to prepared questions to closing statements. Schneider told students: “In any interview, you should listen twice as much as you talk.”


    At 9 a.m., the students in attendance sat down with community business professionals for mock interview sessions.


    Participating students were then able to spend time visiting the booths at the Business Expo and Career Fair.
