In preparation for their post-secondary journey, the students in the B.R.I.D.G.E.S. program, have spent time focusing on job skills to help prepare them for future employment. Facilitators Donna Mansolillo and Kathy Gorman-Gard provided opportunities for the students to practice their newly acquired skills during class time.
Over the past few months, students have been learning how to write a resume, practice interviewing skills and have met many guest speakers who shared their job responsibilities and what skills were needed for their type of work. The students also had the opportunity to learn about the benefits of a LinkedIn account and how to create one for themselves. Students uploaded a picture they had taken to their LinkedIn account and filled out the resume portion.
Special thanks to the Microsoft Team, Jared Normile and Alec Goday who shared their expertise with the students on how to set up their LinkedIn Profile.
We are so proud of the B.R.I.D.G.E.S. students as they prepare for their post-secondary journey using the following skills of Budgeting, Resources, Independence, Growth, Empowerment and Social Skills.
