Here is a breakdown of the two remaining sessions:

Session #2 – The Interview – June 28 –  This session will include time in a computer lab where students will transpose a handwritten resume onto the computer and walk away with their polished resume on a thumb drive for future use.  Students will also have researched local companies between sessions and mock interviews will be conducted.

Session #3 – Being Successful in the Workplace – July 11 – This final session focuses on how to be successful once you've landed the job.  Topics include working well in a team environment and developing leadership skills. A  DiSC® Profile analysis will also be included.
