The Interview Squad is a team of HR Professionals that prepare newcomers for Canadian job interviews.

Mentors are selected for this program for their professional experience in recruiting and interviewing job seekers. In all of the sessions, they will give participants insights on how to work with recruiters and useful tips on what employers are looking for.

Throughout the program, there are many opportunities to practice for different types of interviews. Each time, mentors tailor the interview to the participant’s career interest and provide feedback.  In the long run, participants gain confidence in their ability to sell their talent and experience. As a result, they are able to successfully navigate the hiring process.

The program includes a Networking Event with HR professionals.
