Disability Network West Michigan staff provides Employment Navigation Services to those who qualify through Michigan Rehabilitation Services. While doing a Work Readiness Assessment, Annie had to complete two mock interviews. Typically, these are conducted in our office building among fellow co-workers. During COVID-19, we pivoted to conducting all mock interviews via Zoom, surmising Annie might potentially have to do a “real” interview via Zoom.
Doing the Zoom mock interviews allowed Annie to practice and work on her virtual interviewing skills. After two successful interviews, Annie posted her new resume online and was contacted by an employer to do a virtual Zoom interview. She called to thank me for having her get out of her comfort zone.
She got the job!
