We are so excited to host our 2023 Step Up Mock Interviews back in person at the Minneapolis Convention Center!

Join us to coach and support our Step Up youth participants as they practice their job interview skills in preparation for summer internships. Interns will have just completed their Step Up work readiness training and will be excited to try out their new skills with you.

As a volunteer, you will interview 2-4 interns during your 90-minute slot and provide helpful feedback for strengthening their skills and professional presentation. Before your session begins, the Step Up team will provide a brief orientation and suggested interview questions.

Don’t miss this fun and engaging volunteer opportunity to support our young people and help them prepare for future career success. We welcome individual volunteers as well as company teams.

Register for one or more of our three evening events held Tuesday, April 11 through Thursday, April 13. We hope to see you there!
