Actions and Detail Panel
LaCars' Legacy Employment Services Workshop (ages 15 - 21)
Sat, March 25, 2017, 9:30 AM – 11:30 AM PDT
We address employment needs on an individualized basis. Youth ages 15 to 21 learn the employment process through life skills building, as well as pre-employment and job retention skills training. Youth are referred to good and meaningful jobs within their own communities.
We work with youth directly to develop a quality resume. We take the time to get to know each participant- their strengths, skills, education, extracurricular activities and experiences to create a resume that will highlight their skills to prospective employers.
Whether the application is submitted online or in person, we understand the application is the first stage in weeding out employable candidates and so our goal is to walk our participants through the application process ensuring the opportunity for an interview with prospective employers.
Strategies for Effective Interviewing
We teach participants how to improve their interview techniques by anticipating potential questions and developing responses. We offer one-on-one coaching sessions prior to attending their interviews.
