Mock Interviews/Intformational Interviews About

Volunteer at Upwardly Global and help recent refugee and immigrant professionals with US-style job search skills.

Do you want a volunteer opportunity that uses your professional skills?

Do you want to meet people from all over the world and expand your professional network?

Upwardly Global, ( www.upwardlyglobal.org) a non-profit organization that helps highly skilled immigrant professionals from over 100 developing countries who are underemployed or unemployed get back in their fields, is looking for volunteers.

We need volunteers who are professionals in the engineering field to help our jobseekers practice American style interviewing skills and prepare for real interviews over the phone or Skype. We also need volunteers who are willing to answer career/field specific questions during an informational interview.

Volunteers will be matched with a jobseeker and will conduct realistic practice interviews with them. You will be provided with their resumes, descriptions of jobs they would like to apply for and a set of frequently-asked interview questions. At the end of the interview you will give them feedback on their answers. This is a great opportunity to improve your cross cultural interviewing and communications skills.

When: Virtual - You will decide the best time with the jobseeker.

Location: Your phone - Your computer, or in person!
