A few hours per month
337 Somerville Avenue
The First Source Jobs Program, run by the Somerville Community Corporation, is looking for volunteers to help job seekers practice interviewing skills and prepare for job interviews. Many of our program participants are reentering the workforce or have never worked in the US before, so the opportunity to practice and receive feedback is monumental in helping them in their effort to advance their careers, build confidence, and build economic resilience.
You will be matched with a job seeker and provided with their resume and job description to guide the mock interview. SCC will also provide you with training and instructions for conducting the interview, and a set of frequently-asked interview questions. You will be responsible for reviewing the job seeker’s information, conducting a 20-minute face-to-face mock interview, and debriefing with the job seeker afterwards to provide feedback and suggestions.
This is a great opportunity to develop your cross-cultural communication skills and for those who enjoy working with diverse groups of people. Volunteers must have excellent verbal and listening skills, be able to model professional behavior, and provide constructive feedback. Interview and hiring experience is not necessary! We schedule volunteer shifts on a case-by-case basis, depending on your availability and the job seeker's schedule. There is no commitment required - come for one session or 20, it's up to you!
