A Part-Time Job for Students has Benefits
We can help students when they complete our Job Skills Training and receiving a letter of recommendation. Also, they can make an appointment to practice their interview, we can guide them with a resume, and we have a current list of some of the jobs in the area.
This is the time of year for seasonal hiring, and we see for-hire signs everywhere. If a student proves to the employer that they can learn the job skills, good customer service, and they are dependable, then they may be kept on after the holidays!
