400 students set to be grilled by SF businesses 

No, the dress codes at San Francisco’s public schools have not become that strict.

But the 400 students from 17 city schools who will don business suits this Saturday will be prepared to adhere to the dress code of “real life.”

The students will be subjected to mock interviews as part of programs within the San Francisco Unified School District that aim to prepare them for the rigors of joining the professional workforce.

Armed with resumes, they will be grilled about their experience, organizational skills and career plans by members of the local business community that represent industries including hospitality and tourism, finance, engineering/construction and law, according to SFUSD.

The annual event, called “Prom with Resumes,” will take place between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. at Cabrillo Elementary School, 750 25th Avenue.

For low-income students who may not be able to afford nifty business suits, the organization A Miner Miracle will fit them in professional attire beforehand, the school district said.
