Practice Interview and Resume Tips with Job Seekers!

Do you enjoy sharing your path to your career? Are you comfortable sharing your resume tips and tricks? Have you overcome your fear of interviewing?

United Way Bay Area is partnering with the East Bay Asian Local Development Corporation (EBALDC) as well as SparkPoint Contra Costa to host 2 different workshops. (1) a Resume Writing and Interview Tips session; (2) Interview Practice and Resume Content Tips

Figuring out a career path is hard for most people (especially youth of color) and systemic barriers make it even more difficult to expand their network to gain careers and important advice. Our UWBA team created this opportunity to engage young adults in a thoughtful experience with various professionals in all industries.  This activity will enable youth to prepare for interviews and even great situation-based STAR examples to use in an interview during the Zoom break-out rooms.  

Objectives: Volunteers are matched one-to-one with attendees to offer advice on their (1) interview strengths and opportunities to grow (2) professional resumes and (3) ability to explore various industries. How: Volunteers will use the share screen feature and have a conversation on updating resumes and structure best practices. Volunteers will also share experiences with youth interested in their career field for a Q&A about interview best practices, discuss career path, industry insights, and other ATS tools. This opportunity is only for Chevron employees. Please express interest if you are looking to sponsor a workshop.

Dates: Wednesday, November 11 from 3:30 - 5pm; Wednesday, September 18 from 11:30 - 1pm   (this includes a 45 minute training on the front end)

Volunteer Orientation: All volunteers will attend a 45 minute training where they will learn best practices of resume editing, the STAR method of interviewing, and other tips on interview practicing.

# of volunteers: 10-15 per shift Qualifications: Non-traditional educational backgrounds and career roadmaps preferred. All career levels, ages, backgrounds, industries and demographics welcomed. 

Resources: Volunteers should have a job or business, computer access and reliable internet. If you have entry-level job opportunities please send them to volunteer@uwba.org to  be shared with our participants 18+.  Once you express interest below, we will send you an email with the next steps and Zoom/or Hopin info.

Thank you for your interest and don't hesitate to reach out with questions on sponsoring a Career Exploration activity for your group.
