Mentors Mentors work one-on-one with job seekers to help them prepare for the job market. Activities include practicing interview skills, clarifying professional objectives and focus, and gaining confidence in presentation and networking. Mentors will help mentees with editing cover letters and business communications, as well as introducing mentees to contacts in their industry. Mentors attend a 45 minute orientation session, then meet with their mentees once a month. Additional contact is via phone and email.
Mock Interviewers Mock Interviewers take part in a 3-hour workshop held monthly on a Saturday morning or weekday night. After a brief training at the event, the volunteer conducts a practice interview for two job seekers.
Networkers Networkers take part in a 2-hour workshop that simulates a typical networking environment. This fun event gives job seekers a chance to practice their networking skills in a friendly environment, connect with professional peers, and develop job search leads. This is a great opportunity to interact with our job seekers on a social level and to directly help them improve their networking skills.

Lead Networking Forums in your Industry: Lead and/or coordinate an Industry Roundtable - a forum of panelists in your industry who share information, suggestions, and concrete job search tips for our job seekers in a particular industry.
