Governor’s Summer Job Hunt - Job Search Assistance/Resources
Job Search Assistance for Young Adults between the ages 14-24
In order to compete against other job applicants, you need to have a strong résumé, good interviewing skills and a solid understanding of what employers are looking for in a candidate.
The Future U Program offers individually scheduled one-on-one meetings with a Future U Workforce Specialist. These meetings are to assist young adult customers with any job-related assistance that they may need, such as help with job searching, skill development, job fair preparation, résumé writing, interview skills, and job retention.
