A job interview is an important part of finding work in Canada. Learning about job interviews and practicing your interview skills can greatly increase your chance of success.
A practice interview will help you learn what types of questions may be asked, and you can practice answering those questions. You will learn what employers expect and how to present yourself confidently and professionally. A practice interview also gives you the chance to expand your job search network.
Practice Interviews can be done in-person at Immigrant Services Association of Nova Scotia, by phone or online.
