Volunteers Needed for Mock Interview Workshops
Our job training program splits it’s time between on-the-job training and classroom time. Program participants (interns) are trained in job readiness, nutrition, landscaping and agriculture, food systems and more.
We need volunteers to help our job training staff with some intensive job readiness preparation on the following weeks! Volunteers will serve as interviewers during a progressive roleplay that takes place over several sessions. Volunteers will ask specific questions (prepared for you by our Employment Specialist, Brad Hirn) regarding actual jobs interns may be applying for. After the mock interviews, volunteers will discuss their impressions and suggestions with Brad and the interns.
