Prairie Edge Students and Work Readiness

Students from Shelly Mesch’s Work Readiness class at Prairie Edge have been preparing for life after high school and the world of work.  The class content centers around career exploration including training or skills needed to land their dream job. Classroom coursework included soft skills, workplace communication, teamwork, ethics, professionalism, resume writing, earning money and taxes, and interviewing.   

The culminating activity was a mock interview with Mrs. Gudenkauf, CCSD Career Specialist, where students answered situational questions. Immediately following the interviews, Mrs. Gudenkauf provided real time feedback to the students reinforcing their strengths and made suggestions for next time. The students worked very hard to prepare for this activity and enjoyed having the opportunity to share their learning.
