OU JOB BOARD ANNOUNCES THAT CROWN HEIGHTS JEWISH COMMUNITY COUNCIL WILL CO-SPONSOR WORLDWIDE WEBCAST, HOW TO TAKE AN INTERVIEW, ON MONDAY, MARCH 3, AS FIRST INSTALLMENT OF ‘PROFESSIONAL SERIES’ WORKSHOPS, ON OU.ORG/JOBS
The Orthodox Union Job Board, which seeks to provide employment opportunities to the unemployed and those seeking better positions, announced today that in addition to many social services agencies across the U.S. and Canada, the Crown Heights Jewish Community Council (CHJCC) will also co-sponsor How to Take an Interview, on Monday, March 3. It will be the first installment of the OU “Professional Series” workshops, which will be webcast worldwide on the Job Board website, www.ou.org/jobs. The webcast will originate from OU Headquarters in New York.
According to Michael Rosner, Director of the OU Job Board,” The CHJCC serves a very unique role in the Orthodox Jewish community as well as the community at large. We are pleased to work together and to further extend the benefits our organizations provide to the greater Jewish community.”
The CHJCC will also participate in the OU Job Board’s upcoming Virtual Job Fair III on March 12.
In this partnership it joins COJO—Council of Jewish Organizations; Crown Heights Jewish Community Council (CHJCC); FEGS Health and Human Services System; JCC of Greater Coney Island; Metropolitan Council of Jewish Poverty; Sephardic Angel Fund, which were previously announced.
While the workshop is in progress, a Hollywood acting coach will work with volunteers from the live audience and prepare them for their interviews. The “before” and “after” mock interviews will be taped and broadcast after the seminar. They will focus on how a candidate’s body language can help in obtaining employment.
“For people who think they know how to take an interview—think again and learn the secrets of Hollywood actors on how to express confidence during the interview process,” declared Mr. Rosner.
In addition to CHJCC, the OU “Professional Series” workshops are made possible in conjunction with the following organizations:
• California: Jewish Vocational Services of Los Angeles;
• Canada: Bnai Brith of Canada;
• Illinois: Jewish Vocational Services of Chicago;
• Maryland: Jewish Vocational Services of Baltimore;
• Massachusetts: Jewish Vocational Services of Boston;

• New York: COJO—Council of Jewish Organizations; Crown Heights Jewish Community Council (CHJCC); FEGS Health and Human Services System; JCC of Greater Coney Island; Metropolitan Council of Jewish Poverty; Sephardic Angel Fund.
