We need volunteers to help our jobseekers practice American style interviewing skills and prepare for real interviews over the phone or Skype.
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 We are planning to have some in-person events in the DMV region and will let you know in case you are interested.
