Ready to shake it up

Contest seeks best interview subject among middle schoolers

Posted: Saturday, March 23, 2019 12:00 am

The Great Shake is a competition placing an emphasis on teaching students manners, discipline, respect, and professional conduct.

Prior to the competition, students learn the nuances of professional human interaction as they are taught skills such as how to give a proper handshake, how to “work a room,” how to give a successful interview, and how to remain composed under pressure. The goal is to prepare students so they are able to present themselves exceptionally well for opportunities today as well as those coming in the future. Some of the categories the students were coached on were proper handshake, eye contact, poise, sense of humor, charming qualities, adaptability, cultural greetings, and active listening.
