Jewish Community Services offers “Keys to a Successful Job Search,” a program specifically for teens ages 14-19. Professional Career Coaches from JCS will teach workshops focusing on skills including: writing an effective Resume and Cover Letter, Networking and Communication, integrating Applications and Social Media into the job search, and Interviewing and Follow-up. Workshops will be offered at various dates and times beginning on October 25, 2012, and continuing through March 2013. The programs will take place at Jewish Community Services’ office at 5750 Park Heights Avenue, JCS at the Owings Mills JCC, and the Mitchell David Teen Center. Teens can choose the locations, dates and times convenient for them.
The workshops are free, but pre-registration is required. Teens will also have opportunities to meet personally with a Career Coach and to connect to potential employers through job fairs.
“Keys to a Successful Job Search” is made possible by a grant from the Grandchildren of Harvey M. and Lyn P. Meyerhoff Philanthropic Fund. JCS is an agency of THE ASSOCIATED: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore.
