How was spring break?

Consider this the part 2 of what IRC does. :). This is a reader's digest version.

The community and  economic development team organizes workshops for clients (both employed and yet to be employed) to ensure job readiness. The workshops are "success on the job workshop" and "interviewing skills workshop". Jim (a volunteer) coordinates the workshop. I attended one last week (for ten minutes) and it was interesting. The clients were taught how to deal with relationships at work and also handle situations using a role play format. Mock interviews were also conducted for clients to give them a feel of what to expect when they are called for an interview.

Take care.


  1. I think it is a great idea to try and expose employees to job related scenarios before they are set off on their own. Granted we cannot prepare them for every question that might be brought up in an interview, but working with them on techniques like maintaining eye contact and how to come across as confident, not arrogant, can make a huge difference to potential employers. Good post!

  2. @brady: you are so right.... thank you
