Mock interviews are a great tool to develop essential soft skills. Allowing young professionals to jump into something they are uncomfortable with is the best avenue to help them grow.
While mock interviews help young professionals grow, they have helped me in a whole new way. Mock interviews have shined light on the power of networking. Earlier this year I participated in an event called “Search and Work Day” at Rocky Grove Jr/Sr High School.
This is where I met Susan Williams from the Venango Area Chamber of Commerce, as well as a few other business professionals. Through the Chamber, I’ve gotten the chance to meet and learn from dozens of local professionals who I’ve learned a great deal from.
Connecting with these local professionals has excelled my success significantly. Because of the connections the Chamber has provided, I’ve been able to connect, pursue, and succeed in business.
