Networking, Mock Interviews and Styling!

We’ve had an exciting week at Career Gear! Earlier this week, Career Gear participants had the privilege of being made over by stylists, barbers and make-up artists from HairStyling by Joseph and VerveDash. They were also able to spend quality time with professionals from the entertainment, sports and publishing industries who spoke to them about overcoming obstacles and their personal career journeys.

Yesterday, Zachary Prell hosted a Mock Interview Event for Career Gear participants.  As one participant noted, “Career Gear’s mock interview event at Zachary Prell was full of positive energy and most importantly it gave me great insights on how to improve my interviews skills.” Having offered mock interview events with various companies, we have seen first-hand how valuable these events are to the growth of our participants. As usual, the event was incredibly inspiring for participants and Zachary Prell volunteers alike.

Kyle, a Career Gear participant who attended the mock interview event emailed us the next day to say “My one-on-one mock interview gave me real-life experience. I had the opportunity to learn skills and now I feel prepared for the toughest and lightest of interview questions”.

We would like to thank HairStyling by Joseph, VerveDash and Zachary Prell for donating their time and talents to help Career Gear participants on their paths to economic self-sufficiency.
