SMBC Mock Interview Event 2020

January 21 @ 5:00 pm - 8:30 pm EST

In partnership with the National Stuttering Association (NSA), Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation (SMBC) is proud to host its second annual Mock Interview Event for People Who Stutter at its New York office on Tuesday, January 21, 2020.

Interviewing for a job is stressful for anyone. It can be even more stressful for people who stutter. These mock interview sessions will give people who stutter the unique opportunity to practice interviewing skills in a judgment-free workplace environment.

One out of every 100 people stutter, which equates to about three million Americans and more than 67 million people worldwide. People who stutter make up some of SMBC’s workforce and the firm is proud to host this initiative with the National Stuttering Association. More than 30 employees within senior leadership at the firm across various business areas will participate in the event to serve as mock interviewers.

SMBC is proud to be hosting award-winning film producer John Gomez to do a film screening of the world-renowned film “When I Stutter” to close the mock interview session.
