Greenville FFA Members Participate in Job Interview Contest

Freshman Dalton Walls placed 5th
overall in the State Job Interview Contest.
Thomas Shaw, Dalton Walls, and Olivia McDade of the Greenville Chapter of the FFA competed in the Job Interview contest held at Mercer County on February 11th. The Job Interview Contest is one of many Career Development contests in which FFA members can choose to compete. Students enrolled in their local high school Agricultural Education and FFA programs can participate in the grade level in which they are enrolled.

Members going to the contest submit a resume to the receptionist, fill out a job application, and go in for an interview with a local businessman or woman. The person interviewing asks questions of the student in the career area of the student’s choice. Following the interview process, the student then writes a follow-up letter to the employer. The student is then rated on the cover, resume, job application, interview, and follow-up letter.

Shaw represented the local chapter in the senior competition. McDade represented the chapter in the sophomore division and Walls competed in the freshman division. Mcdade placed 3rd while Walls placed 1st in the district contest. Walls then went on to the state sub contest where he again placed 1st in the freshman division. Walls recently competed in the state finals where he placed 5th overall in a contest containing all upperclassmen. Congratulations to all of the members for their outstanding accomplishments.
