INTERVIEW SAVVY: LTU PROGRAM
Interview Savvy recognizes the plight of the long-term unemployed and is working to change the perception of this overlooked talent pool. Interview Savvy and Shaker Recruitment Advertising & Communications are producing and hosting virtual career events specifically designed to address the needs of the long-term unemployed (LTU). These events will provide job seekers FREE access to the Interview Savvy: Long-Term Unemployed program. This program includes online training modules and counseling specifically designed to aid the long-term unemployed to be more effective in their job search. The virtual career events provide a forum where forward-thinking employers -- who see the value this untapped pool of talent will bring to their organizations -- can share information and communicate live with motivated long-term unemployed candidates.

HIGH SCHOOL ADMISSIONS PREP
The admissions interview for private elite high schools (both boarding and day schools) has a major impact on a student's chances of admission. It is important for students to feel comfortable enough with the interview process to be able to be themselves in the interview and to let their true personalities shine through. In this one-on-one workshop, we brief students on the ins and outs of admissions interview process, help students assess their strengths, work with them on practicing discussing their interests and activities, and go through how to answer the most frequently asked questions. Additionally, we work with students on how to ask the interviewer great questions in the interview which show interest in and commitment to the school. Students will leave this training feeling comfortable with how to conduct themselves in the interview process and confident in their ability to let their personalities shine.
