Last November, Teza Technologies, which promotes STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) education among young people, hosted teens from After School Matters’ Health Science Explorers program. Teza CEO, Misha Malyshev, has served on After School Matters’ advisory board since 2013 and has a Ph.D. in astrophysics.
During the visit, After School Matters teens worked in small groups with Teza employees in a resume writing session. They learned how to identify skills and experiences relevant for college and job applications, and discussed proper resume formatting.
Next, the groups participated in a mock interview workshop, where Teza professionals posed typical interview questions to the students and provided feedback not only about their responses, but also about their physical presentation, including body language and eye contact. Each group discussed their common strengths and weaknesses, and identified traits and behaviors that could make them stand out among the crowd in future interview scenarios.
Finally, the teens and volunteers shared personal anecdotes and their mutual gratitude over pizza and cupcakes in Teza’s kitchen. It was an inspiring and educational event for the teens and Teza alike!
