Summer time is right around the corner and most young people (HS Seniors to age 21) are seeking employment opportunities. It’s a struggle…..but are they prepared for what lies ahead when applying and interviewing for employment?
Did you know most employers utilize a web-base interface to "screen out" applicants who do not meet scoring metrics during the online application process? It’s more than just having a resume and charm! Let Scholar Smarts! give your youth tips to succeed.
Many of you have worked with me before or heard of Scholar Smarts! success stories. Our mission is to Enrich, Employ, and Empower.These sessions are designed to "bridge the gap of youth opportunities and the tools necessary to be a successful employee".
