Fostering Student Career Skills

More than a dozen Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma employees participated in Capitol Hill High School Academy of Arts’ Professional Day in Oklahoma City. Volunteers helped students understand the dos and don’ts of the interview process with encouraging feedback.

Miguel Soto, a business development project management consultant, coordinated BCBSOK's participation in the Jan. 29 event. Soto is a Capitol Hill High School graduate and is passionate about educating and inspiring youth to be the best version of themselves. He was excited to share his passion with his co-workers.

“It’s a great experience to be able to come back and see how things have improved. I am impressed with the students and how they handled themselves during the mock interviews,” Soto said. “When I was in school, we didn’t have this opportunity or the resources to pull off this type of event.”

The school's Professional Day is coordinated by the senior class for the sophomore and junior classes. The event includes guest speakers, résumé-building workshops and mock interviews. More than 60 business professionals from across the state participated in the event.
