Take-Aways Job Readiness Workshop 2013

April 23rd, 2013 by carlrhinehart

I would like to thank our guests from Reid Hospital (Lisa Nantz & Brent Sanders) for coming and sharing their Human Resource experiences and helping students prepare for the workplace.

 

Searching for a Job:                   IMG_0655

  • Networking is the best way to find a job
  • Search tools: Internet, newspaper, company website, Facebook , job/career fairs
  • Dont burn your bridges
  • Make a good first impression, you never know who you are meeting

 

Interview Attire:

  • Dress to impress
  • It’s better to overdress than under-dress
  • Think like an employer (what would I want an applicant to wear)
  • Dress conservatively:  “no crack, front or back”

 

Interview Tips:

  • Arrive at least 15 minutes early
  • Come dressed professional: clothes neatly pressed, no jeans or tennis shoes, limit piercings or take them out completely, no gum, no visible tattoos, no low cut tops
  • Be friendly and courteous to the receptionist
  • Smile and be friendly with all of those you come in contact with
  • When greeted for your interview, make sure to have a firm handshake and good eye contact
  • Review the company and position you are interviewing for prior to the interview
  • Make sure to have your cell phone turned off or leave in your car
  • Stay focused on questions asked
  • Say please and thank you
  • Have a resume and references available
  • Email or send a “thank you” letter after your interview

 

*Remember, this summer internship, Future Achievers will have its Summer Internship program.  Students will complete a three day training program to teach employment skills and prepare them for their internship.  Students will get the opportunity to intern in a field of their choosing. Please contact Future Achievers ASAP so that we can secure an internship for you!
