Last week I, along with my fellow recruiters (Susan McAllister, Leesa Meintzer, Robert Rodriguez, Bill Singh) and Human Resources colleagues in partnership with the state Department of Rehabilitation held mock interviews with persons with disabilities to help prepare them for successful job interviews. We offered tips on how to give strong and engaging interviews with prospective employers. 

Community relations is among our Lab Director Paul Alivisatos’s five strategic initiatives, and our HR head Vera Potapenko reached out to the Department of Rehabilitation stating, “We wanted to target our efforts in a direction where our expertise as HR professionals would help our community.” This Friday, we will provide veterans’ group Swords to Plowshares help with resume writing.
