CAMP-NY Volunteers with Upwardly Global
CAMP-NY is volunteering with Upwardly Global. Upwardly Global's mission is to help US employers benefit from the hidden talent pool that exists amongst immigrant professionals, and to equip these under-employed individuals with the skills and resources necessary to rebuild their careers in the US.
CAMP-NY will be partaking in Upwardly Global's mock interviews. Mock interviewers conduct a practice interview with an immigrant jobseeker of a similar professional background and provide feedback on his/her interview performance. Mock interviewers receive a brief training on both the interview structure and process, as well as how to give culturally competent feedback and suggestions. One of the major barriers immigrant professionals face is their unfamiliarity with American interviewing practices. You have the opportunity to immediately help a jobseeker succeed in restarting his/her career in NYC. The Mock Interview session lasts 2.5 hours with half an hour of training beforehand.
