Kaitlin Myers, a Goodwill case manager said Tuesday, “as silly as it sounds, I always suggest to the clients I work with to stand in front of a mirror, talk to yourself, give that first introduction. What does it look like? What does your face look like? How is your body language? And then of course, at Goodwill, we offer some practice interviews [or] some mock interview scenarios.”
