EXIT INTERVIEW TASK
Throw away any preconceptions you have about the exit interview.
Times have changed.
So has the senior exit interview.
Lifelong Learning Standards (All Phase 6)
This exit interview has multiple goals. It is meant to express to panelists:
- Who you are: your talents, interests, insights, and ambitions
- What you're made of: what events, people, places, or educational moments have brought you to where you are
- Where you want to go, and how you plan to get there
The key is to:
- Be creative: think outside the box. How can you bring your interests and career plans to life for the panelists?
- Be entertaining: how can you make the panelists care? What sets you apart from your classmates?
- Think outside the box: aside from including reflections on your high school experiences, connecting your past to your future, and evaluating your senior project experiment, you are free to present in a way that represents the true you. What will you do?
- Interested in the culinary arts? Cook a dish for your panelists?
- Interested in makeup? Bring some friends displaying your artistry.
- Want to work on cars? Bring some pictures of cars you've worked on (or even the car itself!)
- Obsessed with soccer? Show them some of your greatest moves -- in photo, and perhaps even in the classroom
- Love the guitar? Play them a short song.
- Make your presentation as visual and lively as possible
- Run ideas by your LF before going with them
- Should be 8-10 minutes long
- Should be well-rehearsed ahead of time, making you eloquent, loud, and enthusiastic
- Use PowerPoint if you must, but think outside the box!
