Practice interviews are the best way for volunteers to make an immediate impact on the lives of our hardworking participants. It is an interactive experience that simulates professional interviews, and is a chance to offer constructive feedback to help our clients develop interview confidence.
Practice interviews are held on Friday mornings. New volunteers come at 9:00 am for a brief orientation session and the interviews start at 9:20 am. As a volunteer, you will be conducting 4 practice interviews during the morning. Each interview lasts 25 minutes; 15 minutes for interviewing and 10 minutes for constructive feedback with the client. At 11:30 am, you will meet with other volunteers and staff members to give us helpful feedback about the clients that you met with that morning.
Currently, we are recruiting for the following dates: September 21 and 28, as well as October 5, 19, and 26. Minimum commitment is one Friday morning from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm, but we welcome you to join us as frequently as you’d like!
In addition, we have an evening class that will also need Practice Interview volunteers. Evening hours are from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Evening Interviewers needed October 24 and 31.
