This valuable career resource introduces teens to the skills and attributes needed for success in all aspects of life and work. In today’s economy it takes more than just showing up and a little “elbow grease” to have rewarding employment.

We need to assure that today’s teens have the skills and knowledge that is truly transferable and useful for a life time.

The job-finding and job-keeping skills include:

  • Finding a Job That’s Right for You

  • Ensuring Successful Interviews
  • Developing and Maintaining a Positive Attitude
  • Taking Charge of Your Appearance
  • Being There: The First Requirement
