Challenge:

  • The US Department of Justice (DOJ) was interviewing job applicants for a Legal Clerk position.
  • During their tight time-frame hiring process, the DOJ’s strongest job candidate was a deaf Legal Clerk professional.
  • The DOJ wished to interview the job candidate at their location and needed high quality sign language interpreting services.

Graham’s Solution:

  • Since 2006, Graham has served the Department of Justice by providing excellent American Sign Language interpreters on an as-needed basis.
  • When the in-person interview phase began for the potential hiring of the deaf Legal Clerk professional, Graham swiftly placed strong interpreters to help.
  • Bridging the communication gap seamlessly, Graham sign interpreters provided interpreting not only for the first interview, but for all the subsequent follow-up interviews.
  • The deaf individual was hired by the DOJ, and Graham provided interpreting for all of the onboarding meetings and hiring process.
  • Later, when the deaf individual was hired by DOJ, Graham continued to give interpreting services for on-the-job-training which the new hire needed to attend.
  • Throughout the hiring and onboarding process, Graham was there every step of the way.
  • Graham served not only the DOJ, but also the deaf professional who needed interpreting assistance to begin their new job.

Extra Mile:

  • For eleven years and counting, Graham has been a reliable, go-to provider of high caliber sign language interpreting support for the DOJ.
  • From meetings, to presentations, to interviews, to award ceremonies, to training sessions, to one-on-one appointments, Graham interpreters have successfully delivered support every time a sign language need has arisen at DOJ.
