Young Barbadians are reminded that they should register now for The Productivity Council’s workshops on Preparation for the World of Work.
Students of secondary and tertiary institutions, new entrants to the workplace and members of youth groups who are between the ages of 15 and 25, can sign up for the training which is designed to help people transition smoothly from school to the work environment.
The two-day training sessions will be held on July 13 and 14; July 20 and 21; July 27 and 28; and August 3 and 4, at The Productivity Council, 3rd Floor, Baobab Tower, Warrens, St. Michael, beginning at 9:00 a.m. each day. Persons interested in participating should immediately call Roseann Morris at 626-9416.
Participants will learn about productivity, service excellence, work ethics and teamwork, as well as the importance of communication. They will also be taught about developing a curriculum vitae and cover-letter writing, and receive valuable job interview tips.
Human resource practitioners will be on hand to interview the participants and identify their strengths and weaknesses to assist them in mastering the interview process.
