Description

Ready to find a job but you don’t have any experience? Do you have a resume, but aren’t getting replies? Not having luck with interviews? In this class we’ll cover how to create a resume that will stand out, what interviewers are looking, how to make a great impression once you get the job, and how to find a job that suits you. Having a job can be a great way to start learning about money management, time management, and building social skills. Each class begins with a discussion followed by practical work such as resume writing, job searches, and completing a mock interview. We will look at working for an employer, jobs for young worker, freelance gigs/ side hustles, and starting your own business. Most employment tips are related to working in the United States or Canada. If you reside outside of the U.S., please message the instructor so that we can ensure that your family receives additional resources.


This course is ideal for small groups and libraries that want to provide practical employment advice specifically for teens.
