Since 1997, Career Collaborative has aimed at ending working-class poverty by helping low-income adults get and succeed at life-changing jobs, making Massachusetts and its families stronger. In addition to helping adults find full-time, permanent, entry-level positions with growth potential, we continue to mentor our clients for 2 years after obtaining employment to ensure career progress and long-term success. 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 job seekers for real-world interviews. It is a chance to offer constructive feedback and to help our clients develop interview confidence. During Career Collaborative's four-week long Job-Search and Job-Readiness workshop, clients get the chance to complete 16 practice interviews. These clients have committed to working with us to transform their lives by setting realistic, achievable goals, and applying for good jobs with career potential. Practice interviews are held on most Friday mornings. New volunteers come at 9:00 am for a brief orientation session and the interviews start at 9:20 am. As a volunteer, you will be conducting 5 practice interviews during the morning. Each interview lasts 25 minutes; 15 minutes for interviewing and 10 minutes for constructive feedback with the client. At 11:30 am, you will meet with other volunteers and staff members to give us helpful feedback about the clients that you met with that morning. Currently, we are recruiting for the following dates: June 30th and July 7th.. 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! If you are interested in becoming a Practice Interviewer, please email Louise Cabral at volunteer@careercollaborative.org with a little about yourself and your availability.
