Earlier this week, a group of employees from The Execu|Search Group took part in a mock interview session set up by StreetWise Partners at neighboring Marsh & McLennan Companies. StreetWise Partners is a highly effective career development program that works with low-income individuals to help them overcome employment barriers, obtain better jobs, and achieve economic self-sufficiency. In order to achieve these goals, StreetWise Partners facilitates mentoring relationships between trainees and volunteer business professionals, including those from The Execu|Search Group, who provide job skills training, career coaching and job search assistance. This opportunity allowed our employees to leverage their professional experience and skill set to empower these motivated, low-income individuals to develop important workplace and job-seeking skills. During the event, Execu|Search volunteers conducted mock interviews and reviewed resumes with various job seekers as part of their training, and provided direct feedback to help improve their job seeking skills. Volunteering is a great way to give back and build your network, and here at The Execu|Search Group, we have a long history of supporting worthy causes and organizations in the New York City Tri-State area and Greater Boston. Along with the career development advice that we’re able to offer through programs like Streetwise Partners, our employees regularly participate in community charity events and make donations to a wide range of organizations.
