Mock Interview

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, all meetings, classes, and interactive workshops are delivered virtually. Face-to-face meetings, classes, and interactive workshops will resume when PSGCNJ returns to the church.


In this one-on-one session, job seekers will be taken through the interview of a job they have selected. This is not-preparation for a specific upcoming interview the job seeker may have pending. This is generating a GAP analysis of items the job seeker needs to work on to prepare for the interview process.
