Job seekers actively prepare for the interview process by exploring various interview formats, reviewing common interview questions and taking part in videotaped mock interviews. Participating in Mastering the Interview empowers job seekers to refine their interviewing skills, build their self-confidence and significantly increases the likelihood of securing employment.
WHW has a proactive approach to equip job seekers with their most valuable tool to seek and secure employment. Resume Development consists of a 30-minute presentation on what goes into building an effective resume and then each Job Seeker is paired with a coach to create, develop and refine their individual resume. The goal is for each Job Seeker to walk away with an optimized document that showcases their skills and accomplishments that will appeal to and impress prospective employers.
