PROJECT DESCRIPTION: A project to unveil InterviewNEPA.com, a customized, state-of-the-art web-based video technology platform which will aid thousands of job seekers and workforce development professionals in Northeastern Pennsylvania. This collaboration will provide candidates a free opportunity to review, retry and reconsider their interview skills before applying for a job. Using a webcam at one of the Wall Street West region's twenty-seven colleges and universities, or five CareerLinks, an individual will be able to simulate job interviews to practice both verbal and non-verbal communication skills. Additionally, the virtual career fair platform provides employers with a streamlined, more progressive recruiting tool, offering more choices in how and when interviews are executed and where they are delivered-optimizing the job search process and saving a company's time and money while even reducing their carbon imprint.
PRODUCTS - InterviewNEPA website; Computers & equipment for PA CareerLink offices and participating institutes of higher education.
EDUCATION / TRAINING - 395 staff members trained.
