Resume developers attend a short training on how to work with immigrant professionals to create an American-style resume. Volunteers are matched with an immigrant jobseeker to help him/her create a concise, clear polished resume. Volunteers will be asked to bring a laptop computer if they have one. If not, a computer will be provided.
12:00PM - 2:45PM
Mock Interviewers attend a brief volunteer orientation before giving one practice interview to an immigrant jobseeker. Volunteers provide valuable feedback for jobseekers upon the completion of the mock interview. The session concludes with a guided 30 minutes of networking with jobseekers to help build their skills and professional network. This is a great corporate volunteer activity for groups.
