We're in the final term at HHCC!

Students and instructors are in term 6 which means that we are almost done with the school year.  Programs are busy competing in state competitions, contests, and finalizing potential college and career opportunities.  

On Tuesday, April 5, HHCC hosted a mock interview day for several programs with representatives from various industries in and around Bloomington. Students participated in an employability skills curriculum, created resumes, dressed in interview attire, and were given a mock interview as if they were applying for a career level position. Representatives from Cook Medical, MCCSC, Indiana State Police, Bloomington Fire Department, Work One, Ivy Tech, Cassady Electric, Organized Living, Curry Auto Center, Minton Body Shop, and Bloom Insurance Agency. Students learned a great deal from the employers. In turn, the industry partners were impressed many of the students inviting them back for further interviews, tours with the company, or encouraged to apply for programs at a post-secondary school where partnerships have been established. We are excited by the professional way in which our students conducted themselves.
Congratulations to J.D. and Wyatt who both continue to collect awards at welding competitions.
