Revolution Workshop & Interviewing Skills

RW_groupsmiles_edited.jpg

Recently, Vetted Placements received the unique opportunity to give back to our community and do what we do best – help people get hired! We partnered with Revolution Workshop (RW) to conduct mock interviews with their students and prepare them for employment. Through this partnership, we were able to meet about twenty or so individuals who are truly inspiring. From the staff at RW, current students, to past graduates, it was a truly amazing experience.

Revolution Workshop (RW) provides tuition-free training, in partnership with area businesses, to help unemployed or underemployed individuals become marketable and join the carpentry and woodworking workforce.  

The day started with introductions of the volunteers and representatives (Happy Work Spectacular and Rush Hospital to name a few). Following the volunteers’ introductions, a past student landed her dream job as a result of the program and gave a very touching overview of her experience. What an incredible way to start the day!

To this day, we’re still receiving text messages and emails from students to stay in touch and even being asked to help touch up their resumes. This was an amazing opportunity for Vetted Placements, and we look forward to more with RW and other future opportunities to help the community.
