Mock Interviews

Oct 8, 2010  |     |   General

I’m Joy Stevens, WorkNet Director, showing a picture of a volunteer who donates his time in more than one area. This is Dallas Meador who is retired, and loves spending time at Open Door Mission. I first met him and his wife at the Friends of the Friendless monthly meeting. It was suggested that, because of his business background, he might be useful in WorkNet doing mock interviews with our job seekers.

Sure enough, Dallas was more than willing to help out. He showed up 15 minutes early on the interview day, dressed in a suit and tie and thoroughly interviewed and critiqued 6 of our WorkNet clients. He added an air of professionalism and seriousness to the process. Our clients are now very well prepared for the real interview with prospective employers.

In fact, out of the six, four have since been on multiple interviews and are waiting for the “you’re hired!” phone call. These monthly interviews are so valuable in preparing our job seekers for the real deal. If you have any business background and would like to volunteer in this area, please contact me.
