The Career Development Center (CDC) is a division of Jewish Family & Children's Service (JF&CS), a non-profit, non-sectarian, multifaceted social service agency. The CDC develops innovative programs to meet the ever-changing needs of the Pittsburgh workforce. Their services address the needs of a wide range of job seekers, including those just starting a career, considering a job/career change or recently laid off. They also offer programs customized to meet the unique needs of specific job seeker populations, including mature workers, immigrants and at-risk youth.
The CDC offers career counseling and assessment services, job application skill development (resumes, cover letters, interviewing skills and more) to package and position potential applicants for a competitive advantage, help formulating and conducting a strategic job search and providing the encouragement and support along the way.
There is even an Online Learning Center, providing easy, affordable access to numerous self-paced tutorials and instructor-led courses to enhance professional and personal development.
The CDC is looking for volunteers to play the role of a potential employer in an interview workshop, which will help clients to become comfortable and hone their interview skills. Mock interview sessions would last between 30 minutes and 1 hour. Ideal volunteers for this opportunity are people with some experience in human resources or supervisory/hiring roles. All volunteers are asked to participate in an advanced Interviewing workshop prior to starting with this volunteer opportunity.
All activities take place at the CDC (located at 5743 Bartlett St., Pittsburgh, PA 15217)
