CACLV Work Ready Program Welcomes Luisa Murray Garcia HR Administrator for Community Action Council of the Lehigh Valley
Wednesday August 10, 2011 Luisa Murray Garcia will be visiting the Work Ready program to speak to the participants about the ins and outs of the interview process. She will be conducting mock interviews with members of the audience and giving helpful advice in the hopes of igniting the men and women of the program into action.
Luisa will be discussing proper attire, how do you get past the nervousness, trick questions, how to play up your strengths versus your weaknesses and a host of other amazing topics.
Participants will have the unique opportunity to ask tough questions such as “How do you explain resume gaps in an interview? and “What can former employers REALLY say when asked for a reference for an employee?”
When conducting mini-mock interviews with members of the audience she will have the chance to hit a barrage of questions some of them being, “So, tell me a little about yourself,” “Why are you looking (or why did you leave you last job),” “If your previous co-workers were here, what would they say about you,” and What’s your greatest strength/biggest weakness?”
It is opportunities like this that exemplify this program’s creed: “Urgency, Motivation, Ownership, Learn by Doing, Life Long Learning all lead to Income Improvement.”
