KENDALL – Caitlyn Bonifield, a Kendall High School senior, is interviewed by Tricia Neal as part of “Senior Interview Day” today, when about 60 Kendall seniors were interviewed by professionals. Bonifield is interested in pursuing a career as a paramedic.

The mock interviews are intended to give students real-life experience to prepare for either a college or job interview. Thirty people from a range of professions volunteered to interview the students.

Frank Billotti, who works in information technology with Excellus in Rochester, interviews student David Maslyn, who is considering a career in IT. Billotti interviewed five students who are interested in information technology for a profession.

Jessica Hofer was one of the students interviewed today in the school library.

(Editor’s Note: I was one of the interviewers today, and met students Sidney Lane and Alayna Vander Veer, who are interested in writing careers.)
