Save to Favorites

UNITE-LA

The LA Youth at Work program trains youth (16-24 years of age) to become work ready. The youth we work with go through a 3 hour, Job Skills Workshop (JSW) and a Work Readiness Certification Interview (WRC).

LA Youth at Work needs volunteers at a WRC to serve as mock interviewer. To volunteer you do not need to attend a training. The first time you volunteer as an interviewer, you will be asked to come in for a 30 min orientation to teach you the process. Please, click on this link to view and RSVP to upcoming events: http://www.layouthatwork.org/interview_events

We will have a short orientation at 8:30 am, please arrive by then and dress professionally.

The interviewer (YOU):

  • Will review resume and application
  • Will conduct the interview using a scoring rubric
  • Will provide feedback to the student about areas they are doing well or areas that need to be improved
  • Will complete the checklist and scoring rubric
  • The whole interview process should take no more than 30 min

Youth

  • Each youth will have an appointment time
  • They are asked to bring their resume and a typed application
  • When they arrive, we’ll check for punctuality, and we’ll give them a math test as well as a customer quiz
  • They will also complete a hard copy application
  • Once done with the steps mentioned above, they will proceed to the interview room where an adult volunteer (YOU) will conduct the interview.
