Mock Interviews

Having an opportunity to participate in Mock Interviewing is a valued occasion for youth with disabilities. By participating in Mock Interviews, youth gain the confidence to enter a business and ask for the employer, they learn the importance of dressing appropriately; they 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
