Volunteer Practice Interviewer:
Practice interviews are the best way for volunteers to make an immediate impact on the lives of our hardworking clients. It is an interactive experience that simulates professional interviews to help prepare low-income job seekers for real-world interviews. It is a chance to offer constructive feedback to help our clients develop interview confidence

Practice interviews are on Friday mornings. New volunteers come at 8:45 am and interviews start at 9:15 am. Ideally, you will be conducting 5 practice interviews during the morning. Each interview lasts 20 minutes; 15 minutes for interviewing and 5 minutes for feedback. At 11:30 am, you will meet with other volunteers and staff members to give us helpful feedback about the clients. 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.

The following days are the remaining dates in 2011: October 14th, October 21st, October 28th, November 18th, December 2nd, December 9th, and December 16th.
