JobLinks assisting Oakland residents with interviews

JobLinks has a new team member, Emily Kraybill, who comes to us as a fellow from Pittsburgh Urban Leadership Service Experience (PULSE).Emily is now available to meet with unemployed or underemployed Oakland residents to help polish up their interviewing skills.

“Through mock interviews, we help job seekers prepare for conversations with prospective employers,” says Bryan Perry, OPDC’s Assistant Director for Workforce and Strategy. “By practicing with our staff and PULSE Fellow, who give constructive feedback and encouragement, neighbors develop confidence telling their stories and showing off their skills to get the job they want.”

Emily will assist Oakland residents with mock interviews and job searching for open positions in their field of choice.

Contact Emily at 412.621.3821 ext. 14 or email ekraybill@opdc.org  and schedule an appointment. Or stop by the Oakland Career Center at 294 Semple Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15213.
