Mock Interviews

Mock Interviews

Mock Interviewing is valuable for youth with disabilities. By participating in Mock Interviews, youth

  • gain the confidence to enter a business and ask for the employer,
  • learn the importance of dressing appropriately;
  • receive valuable feedback from employers on how to improve their interviewing skills along with compliments on their interviewing strengths.

They also have the opportunity to network with businesses and learn about possible jobs
