Mock Interview month

Job interviews can be challenging, as we all know. Communicating with confidence takes practice. That’s why mock interviews are one of the annual Oakland Youth Careers Expo’s most valuable learning opportunities.

We are looking for HR and other industry professionals to offer mock interviews for students throughout the month of March. These volunteers will work with students and offer positive, constructive feedback that will help students for their next “real” interview at the Expo, and for future employment and college admission.

HR professionals interested in holding mini-workshops on effective job interviewing and getting a summer job are also encouraged to volunteer.
